Today in Grateful Dead History

Since it's my birthday, I thought it would be a good day to present another "Today in Grateful Dead History." While there are a number of great shows from the day of my birth (12-14-1982), I thought I would leave you with this gem - just two years before I was born. Unfortunately, they did not perform a show on the actual day of my birth. Must be they were celebrating!
