Weekend Flashback: Summer’s Here And The Time Is Right


Summer has finally made its way to So Cal and, in honor of its somewhat late arrival, I thought we’d span a ten year period of the Grateful Dead performing DANCING IN THE STREETS. Ahhh, what a difference a decade makes!

Our first offering is from a concert the Dead gave in 1967 in Golden Gate Park, San Fran. It is blistered by Harry Reasoner’s paranoid and somewhat misguided interpretation of the events surrounding the scene.

The second (and third) offerings are from 1977 at the Capital Theater in Passaic N.J. ten years later and 3,000 miles away. The song is broken up into 2 video segments. This newer rendition features the Grateful Dead’s alternative arrangement to the song. One that I personally loved and wish they’d continued playing into the 80’s. But alas, this version died out with the 70’s.

But today, summer’s here and the time is right. Again… Enjoy!
