Three CD set. Widely considered one of the most exciting, inspired, and greatest shows of the Dead's final decade of performing, the magnificent 6/17/91 show features relentlessly excellent performances, and is filled with surprises. Opening with a shocking 'Eyes Of The World', the Dead were firing on all cylinders from the opening notes of the show. Featuring beloved classics such as 'Truckin' and 'Uncle John's Band'. Rarities played at this show included 'Saint Of Circumstance', 'Might As Well', 'New Speedway Boogie', and 'China Doll', but the real standout in regards to the setlist choices was the recurrence of 'Dark Star', which wove in and out of the setlist throughout the show, including during the first set, making no less than six distinct appearances during the show. With an encore of The Band's 'The Weight', the Dead cap off one of their most highly regarded shows ever with a perfect song choice to send the crowd on it's way. Bruce Hornsby and Vince Welnick join Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart & Bill Kreutzmann to round out this stellar line-up.
