Three From The Vault

Fifteen years later, right on time... We are proud to present this magnificent gem from the band's historic February 1971 Port Chester NY run that closes the loop on the seminal From The Vault series - the series that spawned all other Grateful Dead vault releases. A glowing tribute to one of the band's most prolific chapters, abundant with classics and lovingly captured in HDCD audio.

Features the second-ever performances of “Loser,” “Bertha,” “Playing In The Band,” “Greatest Story Ever Told” and “Wharf Rat,” plus the world premieres of “Bird Song” and “Deal.”
