Live at the Fillmore East 2-11-69

For Grateful Dead fans—obsessive or otherwise—the title, Live at the Fillmore East 2-11-69, tells the whole story: the classic band at an improvisatory peak performing at a favorite haunt. With vocalist Pigpen and keyboardist Tom Constan-ten in tow, the group essays pre-—Workingman’s Dead repertoire with the kind of intensity that would have shorted the circuits of Jerry and the boys 20 years later.
