Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Maybe the best documentary about the phenomenon called the Grateful Dead and Deadheads. Especially the 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition having the whole thing remastered on DVD and having an additional great bonus DVD containing even more great music (besides the other extras) is highly recommendable for anyone loving good music and great feeling that is conveyed in a magical way from this masterpiece.
