Grateful Dead, Philadelphia Civic Arena, 08/05/1974
This show is pure summertime, and it contains no fewer than three bonkers “Take a Step Back”s. That’s what you’ve always wanted in a show, right? That, and killer playin’. Guess that’s what led to the crush. Nice long one, too.

“The only thing that ultimately matters is to eat an ice-cream cone, play a slide trombone, plant a small tree, good God, now you’re free.”
R.I.P. to an under appreciated legend of rock ‘n’ roll.
