Happy Birthday, Jerry Garcia: Watch "Scarlet Begonias" From 1976

Today, Aug. 1, marks what would have been Jerry Garcia’s 75th birthday.

To celebrate the legacy of the legendary Grateful Dead lead guitarist and vocalist, we are looking back at this Grateful Dead performance of “Scarlet Begonias” from Aug. 4, 1976 at Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City, N.J. Garcia, then 34, and the Grateful Dead had just released their live double album Steal Your Face that June and signed to Arista Records.

Check out this classic performance in the player below, and be sure to check out even more live footage of the Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia in the Paste vault.
