13 Songs, 1 Hour 25 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Though Bob Dylan and The Grateful Dead emerged on different coasts a few years apart, both were among the '60s survivors whose music stood outside of the mainstream no matter how much it had been included in it. They'd toured together and released Dylan & the Dead from concerts together in 1987, but here is a collection, selected by Bob Weir, that features mostly Weir's vocal performances with the band performing Dylan's songs. (A Garcia Plays Dylan album came later.) With the exception of a 1973 performance of "It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry" (with Keith Godchaux on keyboards, Dickey Betts on guitar, and Butch Trucks on drums) and a 1990 performance of "Desolation Row," the songs here are from concerts throughout the '80s. "Man of Peace" features Dylan himself on vocals, taken from a rehearsal in San Rafael for the tour accompanying Dylan & the Dead.
