While reading this keep in mind I was watching the video and wasn't able to describe what was going on at all times.

Uncle John's Band opened this "set". it featured and array of pictures interspersed with the band playing at what I am guessing to be Club Front. This UJB flows very smoothly into Playing In The Band. The PITB got a little weirder visually than UJB was. Images of marching bands, jazz musicians, dancers, and old musicals flashed on the screen in sync to the music. The Club Front footage changed into live concert footage about half way through the song. The jam in the middle of this PITB is pretty explosive as images of dancers flash on the screen. Then the cover of Skeletons From The Closet flashes on the screen for a brief moment. As more dancers appear and melts into kaleidoscope vision. Jerry nails the lead while Bobby hammers the chords. PITB goes into Lady With A Fan.

This song is concert footage. The first real animation is a computer generation chess board in the foreground with mountains and a moon in the background. As Garcia sings images from tarot cards appear in front of the CGI chess board mathcing characters of the songs. Eventually, tarot cards circle the chess board. A random fact: the copyrights for the tarot cards used were in the credits. They cut Terrapin out to go into Space which was a short version . The television screen was filled with images of outer space. Could there really be anything else? This goes into Rhythm Devils. The beginning of this video sequence is space which leads to waterfalls, lava, clouds, and ocean. Then a theme occurs with DNA strands which eventually becomes an outline of a man. Than images of Egypt flash on the screen which eventually leads to Fed Ex trucks and images of Wall Street>buildings>cars>cities. By this time I have guessed the theme is evolution. Or the rise and fall of man. As images of smokestacks and war grace my screen. This leads to Space which the box fails to mention. This space is really short as well. The images continue to flash war that is choreographed with the music. Finally the first notes of Throwing Stones is heard. This is also played in a studio. The images on the screen keep on the war images. This time depicting WW2 images. Including Hitler and the Holocaust. Then it shows politicians (Nixon, Kissenger, Ford to name a few). Then the KKK are burning crosses in the foreground as the background is filled with war damaged buildings. Once the instrumental part happens images from Egypt flash again. This doesn't last long as the theme of war is brought back. Then the screen shows the Earth from outer space. (Brent rocks it in this version) This goes into Not Fade Away very smoothly. This is just live concert footage maybe a NYE show(?). Bob does some fun hand gestures during this performance. He eventually conducts the audience in rounds of the chorus. At the end of NFA as the audience sings a view from a computer generated concert hall is shown as it turns into a satellite view of a city then Earth and then the moon. The credits roll in silence. This was a good video. Pretty fun for what it is. Although it clocked in at 55 minutes it left me wanting more.

Lucas gave me the video yesterday amongst many, many other Dead tapes and VHS. So Far was the only video I haven't seen that he gave me. It was a different G Dead experience, I can say that much about it. I wonder why it isn't on DVD.

Very interesting videos. Jerry looks so strange on this video ... almost not recognizable?! Was he sick at that time?

Strangely enough he did look healthyer by the end of the decade than in the middle of it .... just my opinion!

Very nice retro computer immages ....
