Lastly this week we have the end of the show on 6/28/88 at SPAC in Saratoga Springs, NY, the last bit of music the Grateful Dead would ever play at SPAC: I Will Take You Home> Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad > I Need A Miracle> Stella Blue > Not Fade Away, Knockin' On Heaven's Door.
Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault.
Throw in San Jose and there's a box of unsurpassed beauty!!! Then you can lick your wounds and repair to Veneta. I love this stuff, compay!
