Grateful Dead – Lost Sailor/Saint Of Circumstance (New York, NY 10/31/80)
“If you were seeing a lot of shows 1979-1982, you likely saw this Weir-Barlow combination plenty of times. This terrific rendition was a highlight of the Dead Ahead home video, the Dead’s first foray into creating a video specifically for the home viewer (as opposed to the Grateful Dead Movie in 1977, which was a theatrical project). In 1986, the Dead dropped Lost Sailor from the setlist, leaving its partner to appear sporadically in second sets for the next decade.” – David Lemieux
