    GRATEFUL DEAD JULY 8/90 THREE RIVERS STADIUM, PITTSBURGH SET II

    PART 9 OF 10

    -Facts-

    -The psychedelic era's most beloved musical ambassadors as well as its most enduring survivors.

    -The ultimate cult band, creating a self-styled universe all their own.

    -Their name was taken from a folk tale discovered in a dictionary by Garcia and they were initially bankrolled by chemist/LSD manufacturer Owsley Stanley.

    -Despite their popularity as a live act, the first three studio albums were commercial flops, leaving them over $100,000 in debt to their label.

    -1969's Live/Dead turned things around, capturing the true essence of the group in all of their improvisational, psychedelicized glory.

    -They continued to perform & record in the 1970s, 80s and 90s until Jerry Garcia's death in 1995.
