Grateful Dead: View From The Vault [DVD]
Release Date: October 10, 2000
The first all new video from America's premier in-concert band in over three years. The Grateful Dead - A View From The Vault is over 2-1/2 hours of live concert footage from the historic concert at Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh, PA in July of 1990. Jerry, Mickey, Bill, Phil, Brent and Bob thrill a packed stadium with the classic performance style that is uniquely their own. This contains both day and night footage, including the first ever video released version of the huge hit "A Touch Of Grey." The DVD version contains over an extra hour of additional footage shot from Cardinal's Stadium during the same tour.

Sound: The music in the DVD was, like any Dead concert, phenominal. Everything was picked up well, and the film featured 215 minutes of music. The movie contains quite a few songs from Terrapin Station, but also has other hits, including the opening "Touch Of Grey." There's also two songs listed as "jams" one known just as "Jam" and the other as "KY Jam," or "Kentucky Jam" (this second jam was part of three songs that were put in to the film from a different concert). The only problem I noticed with the sound was that in the first song or two Brent Mydland seemed to have some problems with being heard, but you could see a rodie come over and fix whatever was wrong, and after that everything was great. The Dead do some covers as well; including Bob Dylan and Guns N' Roses covers. // 9

Overall Impression: Awesome concert. Done in 1990, so they weren't at their peak and were without Keith (and Donna) Godchauex, however, it was kickass nonetheless. I basically love everything it has even though the psychedelic effects can be a bit annoying at times. It it were lost or stolen I'd definetly buy it again, or atleast one of the other View From The Vault DVDs. // 9
