Grateful Dead - View from the Vault DVD

Three Rivers Stadium, Pittsburgh, PA ~ 7/8/90

When the Grateful Dead's enormous popularity took the band from theaters to larger arenas, amphitheaters and stadiums in the 1980s and 90s, one fortuitous byproduct of the move was the introduction of large video screens, which allowed folks in the nether regions of the gigantic venues to see the band as something more than tiny specks in the distance. A top-notch video crew made it possible to get a close-up view from any seat in the house. And to our good fortune, someone had the foresight to preserve the performances on video tape. View From the Vault documents the aural and visual wonders of one hot night (musically and meteorologically speaking) at Pittsburgh's Three Rivers Stadium during the Summer tour of 1990 (with a few tunes from Louisville's Cardinal Stadium show, from the same tour, thrown in as a bonus). The video was produced using the master tapes from the original in-house video screen feed, utilizing the 2-track stereo soundboard audio mix. What you hear and see is what the audience experienced in real time-without the humidity, of course.
