Today in Grateful Dead History: May 11, 1981 – Veterans’ Memorial Coliseum, New Haven, CT

NOTE: This material was originally published in 2015 on my previous site. It has been updated and edited, sometimes heavily, and was posted in several batches in August, 2016.

This show suffers from pretty shady recording levels and not much effort from the band in the 1st set. The 2nd set has a nice Scarlet>Fire to start and the Playin’ in the Band sequence is alright, but overall there isn’t much to shout about here. Be warned, the first few minutes of the recording are rough but it does get a little better.

Here’s a link to the soundboard:
