The Grateful Dead Release Full Audio From Second-Ever Red Rocks Show In 1978 [Listen]

first_imgAfter much anticipation, the Grateful Dead finally released their 12-CD box set, July 1978: The Complete Recordings. Focusing on five shows held between July 1-8 of 1978, the complete set is packed with hours of prime Grateful Dead goodness.In addition to the full box set, the Dead have shared a separate release of their performance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO from July 8th, 1978. This was the second night of a two-night stand, and the band’s second show at Red Rocks ever. The Dead would go on to play the iconic venue for a total of 20 times, setting a long-held sold-out show record that was recently broken by Widespread Panic.Fortunately, the entirety of the July 8th show is also on Spotify, which means we can happily share and listen to the pristine audio from this show. From the opener “Bertha” to the finale, a cover of Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves of London,” which was released that year, this is some of the best Grateful Dead music around. Enjoy!
