The Grateful Dead in all their 1972 glory playing at a benefit for Kesey's Creamery in Veneta, Oregon.  This is an excellent sonic journey on a fairly legendary gig for the band...once Ken Kesey (and many other folks) fled the San Francisco area in the late-60's to "get back to the garden", there was a good, solid hippie population in & around Eugene.  Ken's brother Chuck opened up a dairy farm and the band decided to play a benefit show for the creamery and everyone came out of the woodwork for a classic day in the atypical Oregon sun.  Big fun for all!

The show was filmed by a real camera crew in hopes of it being made into a real movie called "Sunshine Daydream".  Alas, that was not to be for too many reasons to delve into now.  However, on August 1, 2013, "Sunshine Daydream" will finally hit theatres nationwide after sitting in the can for all these years since 8/27/72.  You can read all about it here:

And be sure to check out the film clip...see REAL action!
