Note: I'm a deadhead, I'm not a professional reviewer,
I'm not compensatated in any way for this review,
outside of the DVD itself.
I have to first admit my joy at getting this particular show. I was not able to attend this show, and this was during the period in the band's history when it was amazing. Amazing in how far the band had progressed sound-wise, and amazing because we all, the band, and us, the Deadheads, were still in the afterglow, and weirdness, of a "top-Ten" hit with "Touch of Grey." Jerry was free from his demon and healthy, and it showed in his voice and playing, Vince and Bruce were settling in after the tragic loss of Brent, and Phil, Billy, Mickey, and Bobby were smiling a lot, on and off the stage. But most of all, it was an amazing time for me, as the shows I had seen on this tour, before this show at RFK, were a joy to be at, music-wise, and family-wise - It was a happy time.
This DVD, "View from the Vault II" is the entire June 14, 1991 concert at the RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. - It is the 29th full-unedited-concert the GDP has released, and it ranks up there with my previous favorite Dead DVD, "Downhill From Here," also put out by Monterey Media, and as the title implies, it is the 2nd in what I hope is a continuing series of "View from the Vault" DVDs.
