Collect Them All

Live-show trading has shifted away from personal exchanges among fans.

On June 19, 1976, the Grateful Dead played the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, New Jersey, kicking off the first set with a great run of “Help on the Way” > “Slipknot!” > “Franklin’s Tower” > “The Music Never Stopped” before launching into a spirited version of “Brown-Eyed Women.”

I know the show well, but not because I was there. I was on the other side of the country that night — not to mention being just two years old and change.
