The Grateful Dead are back with another installment of All the Years Live on YouTube. The latest stop on the long strange trip is the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, CA during fall tour, 1987.
Halfway through the Dead’s second set on 10/2/1987, before breaking into “Drums and Space,” they treated Mountain View to “Truckin’.” Here is what Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux notes about the performance, “Played well over 500 times by the Grateful Dead, Truckin’ (along with Touch Of Grey in 1987) was one of the Dead’s highest-charting numbers, including going straight to the top of the charts, numero uno, in some places, including Turlock, CA. This is from the Dead’s first performance at Shoreline Amphitheatre.”
Thanks to the Grateful Dead for the performance!
