The Grateful Dead Performs ‘Black-Throated Wind’ In 1991: Pro-Shot Video
Bob Weir leads the Grateful Dead through “Black-Throated Wind” in this week’s installment of the band’s All The Years Live video series. The performance was filmed on June 14, 1991 at RFK Stadium in Washington D.C. featuring a lineup that included Weir, Jerry Garcia, Vince Welnick, Bruce Hornsby, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann.
“From Bob’s first solo record, Ace, ‘Black-Throated Wind’ was consistently in the setlist 1972-1974, but disappeared when the Dead returned after the hiatus in 1976,” explained Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux in a note accompanying the video. “Thankfully, on 3/16/90 at the Capital Center in Landover, MD, this Weir-Barlow classic returned, and was right through the final tour in 1995.”
The Dead’s entire show was released in 2001 as View From The Vault, Volume Two. Watch the Dead’s version of “Black-Throated Wind” from June 14, 1991 below:
