Grateful dead nightfall...
Nightfall Of Diamonds was recorded 10-16-89 at the Meadowlands Arena in East Rutherford, NJ which also happened to be Bob Weir's 42nd Birthday. The band had finished what would be their last studio album, Built To Last, and were in the middle of recording their shows multi track for a forthcoming live album which would become Without A Net. The shows around this time featured revivals of songs not played in years. Here, we get the second Dark Star since 7-13-84 and the second Attics Of My Life since 9-27-72 (now available as Dick's Picks Volume 11).
