Film collector Bill Shelley shows rare film footage of The Grateful Dead at the Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington, taking deadheads to a place back in time when life was carefree.

The band first started playing concerts in 1967 in San Francisco.  Now, Shelley is resurrecting them into a 2-hour montage of some of their most famous and memorable performances from the 1960s and '70s. Unlike most bands, they were improvisational; they played whatever they felt like each night, so those who went to see them never saw the same thing twice.

We catch up with some of the show's attendees, who call themselves "Dead-heads," or fans of The Grateful Dead.  One long-time fan confesses to having seen them in concert over 200 times.
