The Grateful Dead: Live at The Rainbow, London
Chris Bohn, NME, 1979
SO LET'S suspend time and disbelief for a moment and stare through the haze at the West Coast's longest running institution called The Grateful Dead. Though some seven years past their last creative peak, they're still one of America's top live draws, probably sell more albums now than ever before and the myth is potent enough to fill the Rainbow four nights running even if that's with most of the same people every night (Hi, Max!).
