About the Book
An extraordinary plan that had been brewing within The Grateful Dead family ever since the band’s beginning, had become reality, and by 1978 everything was in place. The Grateful Dead would play three concerts in front of the Sphinx with the Pyramids and the Giza necropolis as a backdrop. A total lunar eclipse was predicted for the final concert. Rocking the cradle of civilisation became the ultimate acid trip. A unique photographic journal.
