Grateful Dead - East Rutherford, NJ - 1991-06-17

Grateful Dead with opening act Little Feat at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ on June 17, 1991.

A gorgeous day this was, and some great music...Although I was always a little dubious when it came to the reunited Little Feat it cannot be denied that they were a great opening act for the Dead, especially at a big stadium show. Their set list:

Fat Man In The Bathtub
Rad Gumbo
Down On The Farm
Sailin' Shoes
44 Blues > Rock and Roll Doctor
Shake Me Up > Old Folks Boogie, Dixie Chicken > Tripe Face Boogie

The excellent soundboard recording we are posting of Little Feat's set cuts during Dixie Chicken, so it is incomplete. Sorry about that...

Now the Dead's set from this show was something else, too, with some unique song placements and an on-going play on the Dark Star theme throughout the show, courtesy of some lively, playful piano playing from Hornsby. The set list, with notes (courtesy of
