This was the dead's only trip to Europe all year, and it was on a whim! Check this from Long Strange Trip: "Garcia and McIntire looked at him with an odd expression until he asked, “What?” Garcia asked him, “You bored? You bored yet? How’d you like to go to France this weekend?” Well, sure. There was no money to be made, but their expenses would be paid to fly to France and play for a festival on the outskirts. Why not?"

Actually, it's a pretty damn good show.

Supposedly only the second half in circulating copies are in stereo but it's still a great show.

peace.

As a dead head of 18 years, I understand my following statement is very debatable, however, I think it's a strong argument. I personally feel that this particular show sums up just exactly what the boys were all about. Music at a whim. They had no intention or plan to be playing in the backyard of a musically historic castle in rural France. They made no money for this concert but packed up and flew to France, all expenses paid, to play at a music festival. The festival was rained out so else would these guys do? Sit around all night waiting to fly home the next day? HELL NO!!! The set up their equipment out back of the hotel by the swimming pool and started to play. Locals heard music and began to gather. There few, if any, dead heads in the crowd. It was a bunch of French kids and the mayor, firemen, and cops showed up too! France got a gift that dead heads like you and me would trade almost anything to be there for. The best part of it is that it's not some amazing show. Yes there were some amazing moments, but it was just the Grateful Dead playing music for the sake of playing music--and it was amazing.

Watching the video now on a smart tv, cranked!

I've been magically transported 42 years. Dancin like a kid!

We are so blessed to love the most recorded band in history.

At the end of Next Time You See Me, Pig exclaims a quick, "Merci". I chuckled.
