This is a fun and interesting concert film with some good interviews, but Deadheads beware! The list of stars of the film includes Bill Kreutzmann (who does not play at all, but contributes a couple good stories), Mickey Hart (who also does not play, but has one ~20 second comment), and Phil Lesh (who plays on one song only). I think that the listing of these folks as stars is disingenuous, and an obvious ploy to get Deadheads to part with their well-earned money. Having said that, I think that Bob Weir does a great job with the songs he is involved with, especially "Days Between," which he has really taken the time to make his own, despite the fact that it will always be a "Jerry song." I also enjoyed the interviews and a number of the cover songs are well done by the folks involved. It is nice to see the younger generation of performers who were raised on these songs do them justice. This is a good film that was almost ruined by bad marketing.
