Grateful Dead - Live at Fillmore East 02-11-1969

Band/artist - Grateful Dead
Genre(s) - Psychedelic rock, jam band
Origin - San Francisco, California, USA
Album - Live at Fillmore East 02-11 (or 11-02) 1969
Year of release - Never actually released

Another bootleg of the late trippiest band on Earth's 60s material, from when they were at their most psychedelic. With Workingman's Dead in 1970 on they would go into a more folky direction and later still, back to rock again, but it's just not the same. Oh, it's not like I only like their oldest stuff, the seventies albums have some nice tracks on them - I'm quite partial to American Beauty and Terrapin Station. But for me, and that's why I mainly like 60s live concerts, it's the psych-factor that makes the Grateful Dead. Here then a most excellent bootleg with a Beatles cover and plenty of spaced-out improvisation goin' on.
