I was shocked when I saw that no one has reviewed this book,yet. This book has various photos and interviews taken at concers and gatherings spanning from the Haight Ashbury days to the early 80s. Also, lots of quotes from the performers were written, about the situations of the various times of their touring.At the end, the COMPLETE tour list from 1961(pre Dead) all the way to 1982, was thouroughly written. That includes the Acid Tests,Woodstock, Monterey Pop, and the venues that they played. This may be oriented to Deadheads themselves, but this is surely a collector's item. Since this book was written in 1982, it may go out of print again at any time. Definately a collector's item!

Being a verteran of many shows, it brought you the flavor of a dead show. Has letters from Heads and great concert pics. I bought this years ago and use it to hold my concert stubs. It is beaten and worn from use. Not informative, but if you ever shed a tear when you heard "To Lay Me Down" then this will bring you back.

Back when this book was first released, there had only been two books dealing with the Dead and they were both long out of print. The nice thing about this book is that it really is put together from a fan's perspective with press clippings, newspaper reviews, tons of fan letters, some of which deal with meeting band members, mixed in with some great photos. For example, there's clipping of a newspaper review of the show at The Spectrum in Philadelphia on 5-2-81 and after reading it way back when, I had to get the tape. Want to know what cow dancing is? Well, it's in here. There's a nice story about a couple of people who's dog passed away shortly before the 7-7-81 show to which they attended only to hear a sweet To Lay Me Down. Rather than draw on one or two experiences, this book draws on many different sources from across Deadhead Land which give it a nice all inclusive feel. The back of the book has all the known shows at the time of the books printing listed. No set lists though. There are fun insights into the fans, the band and even tape collectors with make this book a fun read and a must have for people interested in that sort of thing.

I first bought this book in 1983. It had the most complete list of shows anywhere, and as a taper and avid trader this was a must. But the rest of the book grew on me over time... so much so, that I am now on my 3rd copy. These days, if you are looking for a show list then just head to deadlists.com or archive.org, either of which is far more complete than the one in the book. But if you want to transport back to 1983 and reminisce about parking lots... this is the book you've been searching for!
