Full Show Friday: The Grateful Dead 12-30-83 San Fran, CA

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...The Grateful Dead!
Just getting back from Jazzfest and as always we need to be held. Both mentally and physically, recovery mode is needed. Nothing soothes like the good old Grateful Dead. We have obviously talked about them a lot on the site so we won't say much more.

This show comes from the super Voodoonola whose collection of Dead shows is simply magical. This is from an odd year with the band 1983, but it is a killer show. Recently we just chatted with a friend about the magic of Brent, and he is in fine from from the opening "Bertha" until the rare (and universally panned) "Day Job" encore.

A juiced up night for the fellows, the energy is high. The sound is amazing (listen to "Greatest Story" with Jerry's Wah-Wah combing with Brent and Phil, Unreal), paired wonderfully with the concert vid. Excellent work all around. 

(UPDATE: Sorry looks like VoodooNola made this one private since I created this post. Here is a Streaming link to the full show over on Also we will embed the stream below and also add a few video clips from Music Vault of individual tunes from the show, sorry about that!)

 "Ramble On Rose"

"Shakedown Street"

"Terrapin Station>Drums"
