Grateful Dead Live in Château d’Hérouville 1971

After 1970 things started becoming too country for my taste, although the playing and jams remained of excellent musicians, the seeking become a parade rather than a quest. This hour long film from French TV could be one of the last documents of a time that was near spiritual in its intention.

The entire audio for this performance is streamed here:
