Watch Grateful Dead Perform Potent ‘West L.A. Fadeaway’ At Shoreline In 1993
See GD deliver the ‘In the Dark’ favorite in the Bay Area.
The Grateful Dead’s latest All The Years Live video features a performance of “West L.A. Fadeaway.” The footage is from the band’s May 21, 1993 concert at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California.
The Grateful Dead rolled out “West L.A. Fadeaway” toward the end of their first set during the first of three concerts at Shoreline in 1993. As archivist David Lemieux noted, the song was a live favorite since its premiere on August 28, 1982 and later appearing on In The Dark.
“Debuting in August 1982, ‘West LA Fadeaway’ was one of the defining ‘new’ Dead songs of the 1980s, and was a standout on their penultimate studio album in 1987. It was always a highlight of the Dead’s first sets during its tenure in the repertoire.”
