this was a free show that the dead performed in the village of Lille, France...they had to cancel a previous show there for some reason and they promised to come back and play...when they did the show was attended by some local townsfolk and curiousity seekers.
apparently it was a beautiful setting as phil lesh has said he felt like he was playing in the midst of a french impressionist painting! the show itself is lovely. very tasty! those villagers certainly were treated to a full range of american music...rock and roll, country, blues and jazz style jamming!
the china>rider is particularly HOT!
excellent quality copies of this show now circulate...grab one if you can!

There's a great animated tale of the background events that lead to this free show in one of the Grateful Dead Comix back issues--Get it Now!!
