This post is strictly for the hardcore Grateful Dead fan. Wait, are there casual Grateful Dead fans? Probably not in abundance. Anyway... Michael David Murphy stitched together recordings of the iconic San Francisco psych-jam band tuning up, as heard in every live recording available for the not-quite-Dead-peak year of 1977—93 minutes of it. This is the audio equivalent of watching a montage of porn actors taking off their clothes. In other words, you gotta hear it.
