On February 9, 1973 at the Roscoe Maples Pavilion at Stanford University, the Grateful Dead unveiled the Wall of Sound, and all the tweeters blew out on the band's first song. Also debuted at that show was a number of soon-to-be Grateful Dead staples including "China Doll," Eyes of the World," "Loose Lucy," "Here Comes Sunshine," "Row Jimmy," "Wave That Flag" (which would evolve into "U.S. Blues"), and of course, "They Love Each Other". The song is a Garcia/Hunter composition and was performed by the Dead every year from 1973 onward except 1995, though it became less common in the repertoire as the years passed.

"They Love Each Other" was also performed by the Jerry Garcia Band and was first released on the Jerry Garcia album Reflections.

A jam based on "They Love Each Other", named "T.L.E.O. Jam", was released on the All Good Things Redux bonus CD.
