Because some of these videos are very long, we found that for the best experience and quality- you should start the video and pause it after a two ro three seconds. This will alow the video to load up and provide a nice buffer for top quality sound and viewing pleasure. Even on YouTube this tip will help….. be sure to check out the Dream Set Playlist, its jamming and filled with the best of the web. .. PEACE
The Gem of the Web – Peggy O . Its pure magic for any Dead Head.
And The Music Never Stopped that same night 6-26-94 – Las Vegas aka Dead Head Nirvana for its cheap food and great dry weather.
In 1992 they were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame during the Juno Awards ceremony.
and in 1994 they were both made Members of the Order of Canada. In 2005 an extensive Canadian Broadcasting Corporation poll determined their song “Four Strong Winds” to be the “most essential” piece of Canadian music.
In 2006 they were both inducted into the Mariposa Hall of Fame. It was in 1961 that Ian and Sylvia headlined at Canada’s legendary Mariposa Festival. This recent induction featured a rare live performance by the duo (accompanied by David Celia on guitar) in Toronto to an enthusiastic audience including Gordon Lightfoot.
Here they simply rock out out with an amazing jam.
Grateful Dead – A truly magical video from Las Vegas 1994. This one is all Jerry, frail yet strong and full of emotion. In my opinion, the solo alone is perhaps one of the most lingering and heartfelt of Jerry’s later years.
Also, just a shout-out to all of the amazing comments on this video… Couldn’t agree with you more! I’m so happy to hear such outpouring of gratitude for Jerry, which goes to show that his legacy still burns very brightly in all us.
Grateful Dead – This is one of the monumental Jerry ballads from the later years. Enjoy this one folks… it will definitely ease your soul. Anyone who knows Jerry’s music will understand what this song meant to him. An affirmation and definition of his life and travels.
