GRATEFUL DEAD JULY 8/90 THREE RIVERS STADIUM, PITTSBURGH SET I
PART 3 OF 10
View from the Vault is arguably the best of the three releases that the Grateful Dead currently has available. This package offers the complete concert from July 8, 1990 at Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with additional footage from July 6, 1990 at Cardinal Stadium in Louisville, KY. In other words, there's more than 3 ½ hours of music here to wet your palate, and all of it features priceless live-action video of the band as well as gorgeous computer-generated imagery.
By mid-1990, digital graphics and video technology had truly come into their own as far as the Grateful Dead was concerned, and these factors joined the band's light show to become, under the masterful guidance of Candace Brightman, a 7th member of the group. The images are nothing short of spectacular, and are often breathtakingly beautiful as colors merge and swirl to form near-3D replications of the group. Furthermore, watching the best live band ever ply their trade and interact with one another -- particularly guitarist Jerry Garcia and keyboard player Brent Mydland -- is an absolute treat.
