The Grateful Dead - Dead Ahead

Thank You Gifts

The luminous performances on Dead Ahead, filmed on October 30th and 31st of 1980, captured the Dead at a moment of transformation, when the band took a reckoning of their history through the lens of a marathon run of shows. Recorded in one of the wonders of the modern world - Radio City Music Hall - the performances on Dead Ahead marked the culmination of a month long musical odyssey in San Francisco and New York City during which the band stretched the boundaries of over 100 songs, from the newly written "Lost Sailor" to jug-band tunes they played in coffeehouses like "Monkey and the Engineer."
