The Dead put most of the San Fran venues on the map and then presided over their demise. Often associated with the music hall ambience of the Fillmore and Avalon Ballroom, they were also synonymous with the barn-like Winterland, and refreshed the acoustics at this farewell New Year’s Eve event from 1978 with sundry live ‘hits’?”Sugar Magnolia”, “Me And My Uncle”?and a chipper version of the “Terrapin Station”suite. Not a strictly classic set, yet Winterland had an atmosphere which keeps the band on their psychedelic toes.
