On May 14, 1974, the Grateful Dead played what would become the only concert performance by the band in the state of Montana. Those who gathered at the Harry Adams Field House at the University of Montana in Missoula were treated to a sprawling, four-hour show with a unique amplification system famously known in Grateful Dead circles as The Wall of Sound.

In the Strangest of Places pays tribute to that concert, with music from the show, recollections from people who were there, and analysis from Grateful Dead experts.
