The Trey Cam | Grateful Dead 50 Videos Focus On Anastasio

One of the MVPs of last weekend’s Fare Thee Well -Celebrating 50 Years Of Grateful Dead was Phish front man Trey Anastasio, whose months of study and practice to prepare for the shows was evident throughout each performance. Videographer LazyLightning55 attended the Chicago shows at Soldier Field and focused his camera on Anastasio for the majority of each night.

LazyLightning55 has started rolling out video from the run and began with three of Trey’s best performances -“Scarlet Begonias” > “Fire On The Mountain” from Friday, “Standing On The Moon” from Saturday and Sunday’s “Althea.” For those looking for a Trey-centric viewing experience, this is the way to go. The guitarist is giddy throughout the first performance and solemn for his delivery of Jerry’s ballad. In re-living the “Scarlet” / “Fire,” we’re particularly impressed by the way Big Red weaves together familiar Jerry licks with riffs he’s trotted out for decades on Phish tour (“Dave’s Energy Guide,” anyone?). “Althea” featured both grittier vocals and guitar work from Trey.

UPDATE: LazyLightning55 has rolled out “Trey Cam” video of “The Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion),” “Cassidy,” “Crazy Fingers” and “Lost Sailor/Saint Of Circumstance”:

One of the few songs in which LL55 didn’t focus completely on Trey was “Box Of Rain”:
