Crimson White & Indigo was released in 2010. The Grateful Dead closed out JFK Stadium on an extremely hot night in Philadelphia on July 7, 1989. Highlights include the “Loser” into “Let It Grow” into “Blow Away” sequence that ended the first set and the run of “Box Of Rain” and “Scarlet Begonias” into “Fire On The Mountain” that kicked off the second set. The band — which at the time consisted of guitarists Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir, keyboardist Brent Mydland, bassist Phil Lesh and drummers Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann — also delivered a stellar “Standing On The Moon,” the song that contains the lyric featured as the title of the film.
