MOTD: Grateful Dead Live at Nassau Coliseum on 1-11-1979

Music Of The Day brings you The Grateful Dead Live at the Nassau Coliseum on 1-11-197.  This is a great quality audience recording and we find that 1979 does not get much notice in the scope of the Dead’s timeline. Give this show a listen and you’ll hear some real energy (and even some interesting lyrics on Jack Straw).
