Grateful Dead: Dick's Picks 32
Grateful Dead: Dick’s Picks Vol. 32—Alpine Valley Music Theatre, East Troy, WI 8/7/82 (2-CD Set)
This 1982 date gets off to a flying start with the unusual medley sandwiching Sugaree between two renditions of The Music Never Stopped, and presents another rare pairing of Jesse Fuller’s Beat It On Down the Line and the Memphis Jug Band’s On the Road Again, two songs that were part of the Dead’s repertoire way back in the mid-‘60s when they were known as The Warlocks. That’s set one; set two is mainly devoted to a ferocious medley of Playing in the Band/Drums/Space/The Wheel/Playing in the Band/Morning Dew. The complete show on two discs, from one of the Dead’s (and Deadheads’) favorite venues!
