For this week’s edition of the All The Years Live video series, Grateful Dead HQ is revisiting the band’s July 17, 1989 stop at Alpine Valley.
“From one of the Grateful Dead’s first home videos, Downhill From Here, this version of ‘Uncle John’s Band’ is a complete scorcher, start-to-end,” explains GD archivist/legacy manager David Lemieux. “The opening track from Workingman’s Dead was played more than 330 times by the Dead, and this is one of the best.”
