Grateful Dead – West L.A. Fade Away (Live in 1987)

This version of “West L.A. Fade Away” is from a show on July 26, 1987. They were playing at Anaheim Stadium, which is in – you guessed it – Anaheim, CA. This was about a year after Jerry collapsed and went into a diabetic coma. When he woke up five days later, he had forgotten how to do a lot of things, including how to play the guitar. He had to relearn it entirely, but a year later, we can see how well he’s gotten his chops up. Amazing, if you ask me.
