Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Steve Futterman
The Grateful Dead in peak form playing at one of their favorite venues in their hometown: What could go wrong? Nothing. Jerry and the boys rip through and jam around some of their beloved numbers in this epic 1978 performance, recorded at the legendary Winterland theater in San Francisco. The Closing of Winterland is a must for Deadheads, classic rock aficionados, and anyone interested in plain old great American rock 'n' roll.
Tracks - Richard Gehr
The cumulative effect is properly transporting.
