Between 1987 and 1995, Shoreline Amphitheatre, located about 40 miles south of San Francisco in the suburb of Mountain Views, was one of the Grateful Dead's most frequently-visited home-turf concert venues. The great rock impresario Bill Graham said that he had the Dead and the Dead Heads specifically in mind when when he planned Shoreline, and Band and Fans alike quickly made themselves very much at home there. The distinctive tent-like structure played host to 39 Grateful Dead shows, including the bands final Bay Area performance in June of 1995.

The Summer 90 performance here is good. Before I get further into explaining 'good' i must say the band looks a bit lazy. But in good spirits. Since my other favorite band is Yes, I am used to seeeing more interaction between the musicians. But don t get me wrong. I saw 6 GD shows and own 1000 hrs of their material (as an enthusiast) and the interaction that they would engage in normally was darn good.
The China Cat > rider is a strong point. Also the Baby Blue encore. Additonally Big boss man is great to see in a year where it didn t get much rotation.
Big River is also a standout.
Furthermore the opener LTGTR > trucking is much full of energy.
It would be nice if GD productions would release some more 'vintage' material (if it exists). I and others would be really thrilled to see some 1971 or '72 material on video.
I found that the special effects would start just about the same time i was getting into the 'space' of the song, so I guess in some ways it was right on cue. Unfortuately, the distraction took me out of my mental and spiritual space.
I wondered if Monterey Video could have offered these DVD in dual format, giving we, the viewer, the option of watching or not watching the special effects.
