John Mayer was kind enough to send me a list of favorite moments from the summer’s Dead & Company tour. This “Estimated Prophet” was on that list, and rightly so! You can get this and other Dead & Company concert recordings in a variety of configurations from livedead.co

The Grateful Dead Hour is made possible in part this week by:
