Full Show Friday: The Grateful Dead 5-3-68 Low Library Plaza Columbia University, NY, NY

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...Grateful Dead!

For June The Masters Focuses on The Grateful Dead

July finds RtBE mining familiar ground when it comes to our Masters Series, but there is just no better summer band, so enjoy The Grateful Dead in the sunshine to end the work week. This month we have four shows from the band and we will be using the four decades they were active for each week. This week the 60's get some love, 1968 in particular.  

This amazing footage from the band sneaking onto the Columbia campus and playing is fantastic. VoodooNola has so many great videos and he even syncs this one with the vocals almost on point.  A piece of history here
Amazing video, with soundboard music, that is different to start but syncs perfectly post vocals. Enjoy (and don't sleep on the bonus below):

And since that is not the full show, is a killer soundboard from a bit later in 1968 minus the video, but def worth a listen as the band gets waaaay out there, some prime '68 Dead, even without Pigpen to add to the cosmic madness. This is a tight ass band who explore the cosmos, great soundboard, full info below:
