This great live album features Bonnie Raitt, Lowell George (Little Feat), John Hammond and Freebo at Ultrasonic Studios in New York. It was recorded and broadcast on WLIR-FM. We have it here for you today.
10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at Long Beach Arena, December 13, 1980 NEW!
Another great live show from our Grateful Dead vaults here in The Mermaid Lounge. No two shows ever sounds the same from these guys. Not even if it’s on the same tour.
