The Grateful Dead shared video of “Uncle John’s Band” as this week’s installment in their All The Years Live video series. The live rendition of the 1970 Workingman’s Dead classic comes from the famed Alpine Valley in East Troy, Wisconsin on July 17, 1989.

“From one of the Grateful Dead’s first home videos, Downhill From Here, this version of ‘Uncle John’s Band’ is a complete scorcher, start-to-end,” Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux wrote in a note accompanying the video. “The opening track from ‘Workingman’s Dead’ was played more than 330 times by the Dead, and this is one of the best.”
