Grateful Dead Dave's Picks Volume 10 | Thelma 1969

The next installment of the Grateful Dead's Dave's Picks series of live archival releases will feature the band's December 12, 1969 performance at Thelma in Los Angeles, CA. Grateful Dead legacy manager David Lemieux revealed the news in a just-posted Seaside Chat about the release which you can view below.

The Grateful Dead played seven of the eight songs that would appear on their 1970 studio album Workingman's Dead six months later on December 12, 1969 and the show also features eight Pigpen tunes including Lemieux's favorite version of "Easy Wind." Other highlights are the tight 31-minute "Turn On Your Lovelight" and the otherworldly "Alligator" > "Caution" sequence. Part of the recording of December 12, 1969 had long been missing from the Dead's vault until a few years back. Once the missing reel was donated, this show rose to the top of Lemieux's list of potential releases.

Dave's Picks Volume 10 is set for a May 1 release and is currently available for pre-order via Dead.net.
