For this week’s edition of the All The Years Live video series, Grateful Dead HQ is turning the clock back to the summer of 1987 for a set-one version of “West L.A. Fadeaway.”
The SoCal inspired tune nodded to the Anaheim, Calif. crowd gathered on 7/26/87. (In fact, a previous All The Years Live release chronicled the “Terrapin Station” from this same show.)
Adds GD archivist/legacy manager David Lemieux, “From the final show of the Summer Tour of 1987, the last Dylan & The Dead show, this mighty version of ‘West L.A. Fadeaway’ shows why it was such a popular Jerry first set song. Debuted in August 1982, this In The Dark standout was always well-received by the fans when it was played.”
