Grateful Dead Performs ‘Feel Like A Stranger’ In 1993: Pro-Shot Video

The Grateful Dead unveiled previously unreleased pro-shot video of “Feel Like A Stranger” as this week’s installment of their All The Years Live video series. “Feel Like A Stranger” was filmed at R.F.K. Stadium in Washington D.C. on June 26, 1993 and features special guest Bruce Hornsby on accordian.

Bob Weir and John Barlow’s wonderful 1980 song was mostly played as a show-opener, and allowed the Dead to jam powerfully to start the show,” noted GD archivist David Lemieux. “Like ‘Shakedown Street,’ ‘Feel Like A Stranger’ had a long, extended jam after the vocals, and gave Jerry unlimited space to explore his musical ideas. Always a favorite opener of mine, and this one features Bruce on accordion more than a year after he’d left active touring with the Grateful Dead.”
