“By 1990, China/Rider had been in the Dead’s repertoire for more than 20 years, since they were first joined in the Fall of 1969. A consistently played combination until 1995 (aside from a brief hiatus 1975-1978, with one performance during that span on 12/29/77), this was most commonly a second set opener in the later years, usually going into a Weir song. This sequence is from Brent’s final tour with the Grateful Dead.” – David Lemieux

Will you come with me? Won’t you come with me? There’s no better place to take a long strange trip with the Grateful Dead than right here. We’ve got music from every single studio album and a bevy of live albums, to boot. There are celebrated live performances from the 70s and 80s and official videos with more skeletons than you can shake your bones at, an exclusive seaside series on what’s to come from the band’s rich catalog and details on meet-ups all across the promised land. If it’s community you’re after, try your hand at our yearly DEAD COVERS PROJECT competition and connect with fellow Dead Heads around the world. Heck, keep your eyes peeled you might even catch a glimpse of Pigpen on keys, Jerry in a GROOVE, Bobby tellin’ tales, Mickey talkin’ space, Phil and friends, Bill on the beach, or anyone from our extended family.
It’s all happenin’ right here. Subscribe and you won’t miss a thing.
