Grateful Dead week continues with another rarity, one that was originally part of the Live at the Cow Palace three-disc set from 2007.
It's easy enough to find that release, which contains the Dead's entire 1976 New Year's Eve show. What's not so easy to locate is the bonus fourth disc that came with the first edition of the CD. This is it.
Now out of print, this elusive disc sometimes sells for over $100 on eBay. It contains recordings of some first-rate live Dead performances from throughout the good ol' Bicentennial year.
