This album showcases the Grateful Dead’s stunning performance at the Kezar Stadium, in San Francisco, on 23 March 1975, during the SNACK benefit concert.

The Grateful Dead had officially retired from performing after their five-night stand at Winterland in October 1974, so it was quite a surprise when they appeared in concert at the Kezar Stadium to an audience of over 60,000 fans.

Joined by guest keyboardists Merl Saunders and Ned Lagin, this became one of the most extraordinary sets of the band’s career, with them playing a lyric-less, melody-evasive jam that draws on material from their 1975 Blues for Allah album.

The Johnny B. Goode closer, coming in at just under four minutes, wraps up the set with a rock n’ roll burner.
