Watch Nearly Three Dozen Grateful Dead Shows on YouTube

The owners to the rights of the Bill Graham Archives have organized nearly three dozen shows worth of high quality Grateful Dead video into playlists on this YouTube channel entitled Music Vault.

The earliest show in the vault is the 6/18/76 show from the Capitol Theatre and spans all the way through the band’s Halloween show at Radio City Music Hall in 1980 and others, with the latest show coming in the form of the 11/3/91 show at the Golden Gate Park, played just ten days after the death of Bill Graham.

Most of the shows occur at Graham’s Winterland Arena, a proving ground for the band (as well as Jefferson Airplane and others). Graham and the Grateful Dead worked closely together for the majority of the famed promoter’s life before his untimely death in 1991.
