Got the summertime blues? Go on a long, strange tour with me through time. Every day in the month of July, we’ll feature a vintage recording from the Dead. Tune in on YouTube and join the chat as we explore the wonders of summer tours past. We will get by, we will survive!
The next stop on the We Will Get By Streaming Tour brings us to the summer of 1976. On July 12, 1976 the Dead kicked off a six night run at the Orpheum Theater in San Francisco. These six shows would be the only they would play in July.
As a rare treat, the soundcheck was recording and filmed unbeknownst to Jerry and the rest of the Dead.
As for the show itself, checkout the “Minglewood Blues” bust-out, a great version of “Lazy Lightning > Supplication,” the “China Cat” teases during “Franklin’s Tower,” and a beautiful “Wharf Rat.”
