The Late 1970's Dead Dance at Duke


One of the favorite college spots for the Grateful Dead was always Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, NC, the home of Duke University (5 shows between 1973 and 1982 after one outdoor show with Pigpen in April 71). Thanks to a hero named Voodoonola2, you can see the full 1978 show below.  Or you can get your mind blown by the 1976 first set Crazy Fingers>El Paso by clicking above.  And of course the music is here or here  For real historical info (from a real Grateful Dead historian) try http://lostlivedead.blogspot.com/2016/02/the-grateful-dead-in-north-carolina-and.html
As usual, I am just a fan.







Our reviewer from the 1978 Daily Tar Heel, must have had an early deadline as Allen calls "Jack Straw" and "Dire Wolf"  and starts dancing and stops writing anymore about the show.





I like both of these shows, but especially the Fall '76 one. And the entire Fall 1976 tour actually.
