The first shot of this concert tips off Grateful Dead fans they're in for a treat: Jerry Garcia sports a T-shirt not in his trademark black, but in navy blue--an unmistakable light, festive touch. It's an apt omen; the concert, recorded on June 14, 1991, in RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C., crackles with energy. Highlights include a rousing "Big River" and some blistering jams on several songs from the underrated Blues for Allah album, including "The Music Never Stopped" and "Help on the Way/Slipknot." Guitarist Garcia, rhythm guitarist Bob Weir, and bassist Phil Lesh hit their stride by the second set, joined by keyboardist Bruce Hornsby, whose jazzy melodic additions provide sparkle. The camera work is rocky at best--the picture seems about eight beats behind whoever is playing lead--but as an intimate home movie of live Dead, with terrific sound, it's sure to see many repeat viewings. --Anne Hurley
