Synopsis by Mark Deming

On July 8, 1990, the Grateful Dead played one of their legendary three-hour-plus shows for a sold-out crowd at Pittsburgh's Three Rivers Stadium. To augment their famous light show (and to give folks in the back a better view of the band), the group employed a multi-camera video setup that allowed everyone in the arena to have a close look at the Dead in action. Given the Grateful Dead's habit of obsessively documenting their performances, it's no great surprise that they held on to a copy of the video feed used that evening, and Grateful Dead: View From the Vault is a home-video release of this performance, mastered from the Dead's own archive copies of the evening's video display and the original two-track soundboard audio mix. The video also features three additional songs from a performance in St. Louis two days earlier.
