The Grateful Dead have released their new weekly pro-shot archival video on their YouTube page, a series they call All The Years Live.
Today’s video is “Stagger Lee,” a follow-up on the “Bird Song” from Buckeye Lake in ’92. Here’s what David Lemieux had to say about this clip:
“Debuting in 1978, Stagger Lee was a reworked traditional story, with Hunter creating a visual masterpiece with his words. In the repertoire 1978-1979, and 1985-1995 (with a few versions in 1982), this song was a thrilling addition to the first sets of many Dead shows. This version is from the final show of the Summer Tour of 1992, after which the Dead took one of their longest breaks since the 1974-1976 hiatus, going five months without a show.” – David Lemieux
