“When the Grateful Dead took an extended break in the Fall of 1992, their return in December was triumphant. There was a renewed energy, inspiration, and enthusiasm that had been lacking from some of the shows in the first half of 1992. These December shows rolled into a wonderful spring tour of 1993, and into the summer, with several top notch shows in the month of June,” explained Lemieux.
“On that fine tour, the Dead returned to Buckeye for the fourth time (previously they’d played there in 1988, 1991, and 1992), and played a terrific night that was thankfully captured on video. The setlist was filled with excellent renditions of older, classic Dead songs like ‘Jack Straw,’ ‘Eyes Of The World,’ ‘Uncle John’s Band,’ and ‘Playing In The Band,’ along with three of the newer songs: ‘Lazy River Road,’ ‘So Many Roads,’ and ‘Corrina.’ Add to all of that a rare early first set ‘Foolish Heart,’ and the only-time-played double dose Bob Dylan combination of ‘Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues>When I Paint My Masterpiece,’ and you have one of the best shows of a great year.”
