Victim or the Crime? August 17, 2012 | 9:00 pm

Deadheads are familiar with musical segues that the Grateful Dead institutionalized over the years, to the point where the fans could actually shorthand them. China Cat Sunflower~I Know You Rider simply became China Rider; Estimated Prophet~Eyes of the World became Estimated Eyes, and Scarlet Fire was the contraction of Scarlet Begonias~Fire on the Mountain. Well, in 1991 at Shoreline Amphitheater, the perpetrated one of the biggest musical non sequiturs of their career, inserting Victim or the Crime in the middle of Scarlet Fire. Find out how they pulled it off on this week's Grateful Dead Hour, plus the conclusion of the 1976 Capitol Theater, Passaic show wherein they cover Chuck Berry, Woody Guthrie, and Buddy Holly.
