Stormy Mondays | The First Final Grateful Dead Show
To round out this year when we’ve spent so much time listening to the music of the Grateful Dead in 1974, we’re going to give it one last spin, focusing on the famous second set from October 20.
It was the last show before the band’s hiatus, and during set break, Mickey Hart arrived with a drum kit and rejoined the band. What follows is a super rhythm heavy sequence tied together by Garcia’s guitar cutting a trail through the center. It’s one of my favorites and a great way to celebrate the end of the year. As always, enjoy!
