Synopsis by Mark Deming

While psychedelic rock pioneers the Grateful Dead had been making audio recordings of their shows since the 1960s, in the late '80s -- when their popularity had grown enough that they were regularly playing sports arenas and stadiums -- they started using video screens on-stage to provide a clear view of the band for everyone in attendance, and the group's staff began archiving the video feeds from their live shows, as well as the music. Grateful Dead: A View From the Vault, Vol. 2 presents the video from the band's June 14, 1991, show at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C., along with the concert's original live audio mix. Selections include "Jack-A-Roe," "Big River," "The Music Never Stopped," "Dark Star," and "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue," among others. As a bonus, this video also includes four songs from a July 12, 1990, performance at the same venue.
