Filmed in 1974, which is widely considered to be a peak time for the band, the film shows the Dead playing at its best, though it doesnt focus solely on the music. The film, which was codirected by Garcia, takes a more holistic approach weaving together audience footage, interviews with the band, and psychedelic animation. The result is far more than a concert film. Rather, it provides a multidimensional experience of the rare and beautiful phenomenon that was, and is, the Grateful Dead.
