Dead Heads recently had their patience rewarded when this unreleased gem finally had its time in the sun with a special “one night only” theatrical premiere nationwide on August 1, which happened to be Jerry Garcia’s birthday. The concert, which is considered to be the Merry Pranksters’ last “Acid Test,” offers a snapshot of the band at the peak of its playing prowess and features the classic lineup of Jerry Garcia, Donna Jean Godchaux, Keith Godchaux, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir. Apart from the band’s stellar performance, the show is also remembered for the sweltering temperature (having taken place on one of the hottest days on record in Oregon) and the lack of water at the Olde Renaissance Fairgrounds, where the concert was held.
GA’s Ultimate Luxury Products Guide: We present the best in fine food, exquisite autos, exotic vacations, impeccable audio reproduction and sartorial superiority. Sunshine Daydream takes Deadheads back to one of the most sought-after shows in the band’s history – a blistering set in Veneta, Oregon in the dead of summer 1972 – on CD and video for the first time.
Having just returned from a now-legendary tour of Europe (painstakingly chronicled by Rhino in one of the biggest box sets in recent memory), The Grateful Dead were in top form when they traveled to the Olde Renaissance Fairgrounds in Veneta, Oregon, to put on a show to benefit the Springfield Creamery, a local dairy run by the parents of Ken Kesey, the famed novelist and countercultural hero.
Michael Duquette (Founder) was fascinated with catalog music ever since he discovered there was more than one version of John Williams' soundtrack to E.T. Born and raised in New Jersey, Mike lives in Astoria, Queens with an ever-expanding collection of box sets and vinyl. At least, in this case, the music itself is not being limited in its availability (unlike the most recent Dead box sets, and ALL of the Dave’s Picks series). Unfortunately, it looks as though there will only be a DVD release with the CDs through Amazon and the like?

The show, which was recorded and filmed but never released, has since become the most-requested live show in Grateful Dead history. The setlist that day included memorable performance of “Sugaree,” “Deal,” “Black-Throated Wind,” “Greatest Story Ever Told,” “Bird Song” and a mind-melting version of “Dark Star” that stretches past 30 minutes.
Kesey’s Merry Pranksters were on hand for what was their final “acid test,” and the Dead – at the time, consisting of Jerry Garcia, Donna and Keith Goodcheaux, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir – put on a rollicking show on one of the hottest days on record in state history. 12,500 copies of this edition will be available with a DVD, and another 12,500 with a Blu-Ray.
