For this week’s edition of ‘All The Years Live,’ Grateful Dead HQ is looking back at the band’s standout Summer ’90 Orchard Park gig with a rollicking, set-one take on Bobby Womack’s “It’s All Over Now.”
“When ‘It’s All Over Now’ first appeared in Grateful Dead sets in 1976, it was the perfect addition to the Bob-sung part of first sets,” explained GD legacy manager/archivist David Lemieux. “It was quite a bit different than any other Bob song: not an original, not a blues song, not a cowboy song. When ‘The Last Time’ arrived in 1990, it was the same feeling, another Bob rocker, although ‘The Last Time’ bounced around the setlist quite a bit, whereas ‘It’s All Over Now’ was a first set song.”
