Grateful Dead - Laughter, Love & Music 1991 (VINYL ALBUM)
Release Date: 01/19/18
If there was one band whose appearance at and support for the Bill Graham Memorial Concert - held in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park on November 3rd 1991, just 8 days after Bill and his girlfriend, Melissa Gold, plus pilot Steve Kahn, were killed in a fatal helicopter accident - was not just assured but all but mandatory, it was The Grateful Dead. The Dead's set concluded with 'Sunshine Daydream' but two encores followed - a deeply affecting version of 'Forever Young' with Neil Young fronting the group, and then a bittersweet 'Touch of Grey'. The actual finale of the afternoon featured many of the artists who had performed getting onto the stage for a rousing and spirited 'Amazing Grace', ending a sad day during which emotions were clearly mixed, but one that had ultimately proven joyous and – as it had been tagged – one full of laughter, love and music.
