Grateful Dead - Red Rocks 7/8/78 album review

Album Review

First official release for epic gig from the Dead’s legendary Betty Boards bootleg series.

Classic 70s Grateful Dead shows were rarely more triumphant or voluminous than this (numerically notable) outdoor spectacular. Red Rocks would become synonymous with U2’s pomp five years later, but in ’78 the Dead wove a very different sort of truly, deeply American magic into its dramatic setting.
