Nantucket resident and renowned master sound/mixing engineer Jamie Howarth worked on this film and will give an introduction at the beginning of the Tuesday, Nov. 1st screening at 7pm.  


Join us for the latest meetup in celebration of the 50th anniversary of one of the Grateful Dead’s most iconic gigs from the Tivoli Concert Hall in Copenhagen, Denmark, on April 17, 1972. With audio mixed from the 16-track analog master tapes by Jeffrey Norman, and mastered by David Glasser, Tivoli 4/17/72 features nearly an hour and a half of the Grateful Dead at a peak of their performing career.


The show's many highlights include an overview of the Dead's 1972 touring repertoire, including magnificent versions of China Cat Sunflower, I Know You Rider, Big Railroad Blues, Truckin', and many more of the Dead's classics, as well as the first live performance of He's Gone, and other new songs including Ramble on Rose, Jack Straw, and One More Saturday Night. Pigpen, on what would prove to be his last tour with the Grateful Dead, is well-represented by three songs, including the broadcast's opening number, Hurts Me Too.
