Comments:

is this SNL?
-Anonymous


no, they did that show in '78 and '80, promoting 'miracle' and 'alabama', respectively
-


If I had to guess, I'd say this is on "Late Night w/ David Letterman."

This is from The Tomorrow Show with Tom Snyder.

During the Tom Snyder interview, one of the guys says something like, "You should've heard us last night," suggesting that they had played and played very loudly. I don't see a 5-6-81 on here. Does it exist?
-


5-6-81 Glen Falls Civic, one of my favorite all-time shows, also 5-8-81 is a very nicely played show! Judging from these performances, I'd say they should have played on TV more often!!!

THERE IS NOTHING LIKE A GRATEFUL DEAD CONCERT!

this is a pretty killer version of Deep Elem Blues. Jerry nails the solo and looks good doing it. Made for TV Dead, go figure!
