YEAR OF THE DEAD: Grateful Dead Sing National Anthem At Giants Opening Day, 1993

This is the year of the Dead, as America says farewell to the Grateful Dead 50 years after the band was founded, marks the 20th year since the passing of lead singer Jerry Garcia, and anticipates the triumphal and final return of the band to the Bay Area stage June 27th and 28th at Levi’s Stadium. This recording is a great way to count down to that concert.
