Editorial Reviews

Starring: The Grateful Dead

Directed By: Len Dell’Amico Description: Rich Stadium, Orchard Park, N.Y. July 4, 1989

The entire band is in peak musical form, making "Grateful Dead: Truckin' Up To Buffalo" one of the very best concerts. Arguably considered to be the Grateful Dead's best tour of their last 15 years of touring, this complete concert at Buffalo's Rich Stadium on July 4, 1989, features the quintessential Fourth of July song, "U.S. Blues."

With the picture taken from the master 1" video tape, shot with six cameras, and featuring an outstanding new 5.1 and stereo mix produced from the master multi-track tapes, this nearly three hour concert features such staples as "Touch of Grey," "Morning Dew," "All Along The Watchtower," "Deal," "Terrapin Station," and is sure to be a collector’s favorite!

Ya gotta understand, this review is written by someone

who has a rule in life: No post-1977 Grateful Dead material;

and this DVD is 1989!!! Anyway, the reviews are so favorable, I

made an exception to my rule and checked this DVD out.

Hey, it really is quite good; and I'd love to give it five

stars; but when there are other 5-star items such as

Dick's Picks #15, 12 and 8, well...I'll be a little stinker

and give this DVD 4 stars. There are several highlights.

Row Jimmy is very good...till they change the beat in the

2nd half of the song and it kind of sounds automatic.

An outstanding track is DEAL...this is A+, really well performed;

I'm tempted to say that the DEAL on this DVD is arguably the

definitive version of that song. Ship of Fools is tremendous.

Morning Dew...great. All Along The Watchtower....very very good.

Lots of people complain when Grateful Dead DVDs have animated

portions...and I don't blame them; but in this case, there is

one section of the DVD that is animated...and I loved it...

during SPACE...the animation is really quite well done, I

thought. So that's my take on this DVD. All in all, I'm glad

I bought it.

I "got on the bus" on the 12/31/82 show, and in my opinion, if you want to know what the fuss was all about with this band you should pick up this DVD and the "Dozin' at the Knick" CD. The stages of the Grateful Dead can best be measured by the tenure of the keyboard players, giving Brent two periods (early and late). "Late Brent" is defined as the period where he was given a chance to lead once or twice a show, as opposed to "Early Brent" where it was more like once or twice a month. "Late Brent" is where the Dead finally got it all together as a professional act, and you get the benefit of all that in this DVD:

+ Equipment and sound at the show is clean, bugfree, and solid
+ Camera and recording chops are practiced and at their best
+ This particular DVD comes at a point in the technology where they've figured that out too. 5.1 sound is clean and strong... Phil (bass) is ALL THERE and the "rain" sound effects during "Looks Like Rain" come from behind you!

For various Deadhead reasons, I prefer this show over all the other commercial releases. Jerry's voice is not entirely up to snuff, but his playing is, and this is basically my kinda show. Touches like:

+ Jerry plays slide, as well as the Tiger guitar all show.
+ Brent sings a verse in "Women Smarter." Smokes on the keys too.
+ "Deal" starts easy and comfy, then raises to a smokin' blaze. All JG.
+ I still get a rush out of Brent's keyboards on "Touch of Grey." That song was going nowhere until Jerry let Brent put the finishing touches on, making it their only bonafide top 40 hit.
+ Let's face it... this show is close to an ideal non-rarities setlist for me. IWTYH->Watchtower->Dew->NFA!! Good God! I mean, Not Fade Away is usually as pedestrian as it gets, but in this one Jerry and Brent do a great call-and-response, and Jerry throws his arms up for "My love is bigger than a Cadillac!"

so I own almost every GD DVD released so far; all the Vault releases, GD Movie, Closing of Winterland, etc. And this pretty much puts all the Vault releases to shame in terms of quality and performance. The vid is crystal clear, even better than the Grateful Dead movie in that aspect.
You can tell Jerry is in really good spirits in this one, highlights: The whole second set is awesome my favorite being: Watchtower> Morning Dew> NFA. Looks Like Rain is also great. Jerry shreds it up on Watchtower. The Morning Dew is just magical and there is great interplay between Brent and Jerry on NFA. He's grins through and through on this one.
Actually there is only one complaint in the editing, there are moments when Jerry is really tearing it up and they might cut to someone else just doing routine stuff like Phils baseline or something, its like man I wanna see whats going on over on the guitar!

I truly enjoyed this concert DVD. Wonderful camera work makes it feel like you're right on stage with the Dead. Other reviews will give you the details of the songs and the place of this show in the spectrum of the Dead's history. I'm here to tell you it's a great concert that's been well recorded. No Clunkers here, just a good ol' Grateful Dead show for your viewing and listening pleasure.

I'm a Grateful Dead fan, but not a fanatic. I bought this DVD on the strength of other reviews here, and I'm glad I did.

The Dead were never ones to jump around and dance and put on a visual show, and even less in their middle age than when they were younger. It's really pretty funny to see Jerry Garcia standing there with his dirty black tee shirt hanging over his pot gut, and Bob Weir in his gym shorts and floppy tennis shoes. Madonna this ain't.

No matter. However they look, older or younger, they retained the ability to pour out fresh and original music in a never-ending stream.

The first set is good, but the second one is better. It includes "Ship of Fools", perhaps their most political song, followed by the old favorite "Playing in the Band" and an excellent version of "Terrapin Station"... along with 9 other songs in the set.

Five stars, no doubt about it.
