The Grateful Dead Movie [Blu-ray]
The only Grateful Dead video to have received a theatrical release (in the mid-'70s), this film is a real time capsule. See Keith and Donna Godcheaux as integral parts of the band! See the Wall of Sound! See the trippy animation! See Jerry with all-black hair! The photography and sound are crude and not on par with those in some of the more recent Dead videos, notably Ticket to New Year's or Downhill from Here, but its earnestness, and its focus on an era in the Band's history with little other video documentation, more than make up for the lack of polish. There's some above-average music, too, especially "Eyes of the World" and the ever-irresistible "U.S. Blues." --Anne Hurley --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I remember when I couldn't wait for this movie to come to the big screen every few years. It is awesome. It is The Grateful Dead at their best. Read morePublished on Jan. 11 2004 by Leslie Berg

I had more fun watching this video. Jerry is in top form, I adore Donna, Bobby looks like he's 16, but wasn't he? It was just a blast from the past! Read morePublished on Aug. 29 2000 by Vickie Murphy
