In a decades-old career that certainly doesn't lack for definitive live performances, the Grateful Dead's tour for the 1987 album IN THE PARK is generally considered to be one of the band's finest. Directed by longtime Dead collaborator Len Dell'Amico (DOWNHILL FROM HERE, SO FAR), the concert film TRUCKIN' TO BUFFALO captures the band on one memorable night of the tour at Buffalo, New York's Rich Stadium on July 4, 1989. Featuring the classic lineup of Jerry Garcia on lead guitar, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann on drums, Phil Lesh on bass, Brent Mydland on keyboards, and Bob Weir on rhythm guitar, the three-hour long concert finds the Dead blazing through superlative versions of classics like "Touch of Grey," "Terrapin Station," "Morning Dew," and "U.S. Blues," in crisp new audio and video taken from the original master tapes.
