A new matrix recording has surfaced of the Grateful Dead show from April 8th, 1978 in Jacksonville, FL. In the spring of ’78 the Dead did a three night run of shows in Florida that ended with one at the Jacksonville Memorial Coliseum.
1978 is often over looked because of the Dead’s legendary 1977 shows. This is a gem from ’78 that includes an absolutely monster second set. Check out the “Samson and Delilah” in particular.
