I remember...

This was my second show, the first being in Passaic, NJ the Nov before.
I remember we were all hanging on the lawn outside the field house, pretty packed in there. Then the doors opened - out. There was a horrible crush like I'd never seen before or since. People were falling and it was difficult to get them back up and on their feet. I held onto the belt loop of a guy I'd just met that afternoon, and who is still a dear friend. He was sucked through the door, and I lost hold of him, but a big hand came out and pulled me through as the crowd surged backwards. It was a scary beginning, and I was glad to not be tripping for that!
The show was lots of fun, though!

Nowadays, Passenger is the first song I put on when I'm going to work out. Gets the blood going!

I get the feeling the download for Sunday will be top notch

And very long so we can all enjoy a nice long jam & relax while watching football, or just enjoy the seasons changing while hearing a great improv jam. How about some thing from 72-74 or a great drums > space from mid to late 80' maybe an 84' or 85' Space > Other One

How to download these ??

Did anybody get these. ?? Released in 2007 end of year , I believe. Would like more 79' and since these are already out how do I get?? iTunes did not have, they do have the download series , which are very nice. I own about half and plan to buy the rest eventually, 76' show + filler next on my list & then the April 69' show although a bit pricey compared to the others

Thanks for the hints!

Not sure if I got it (I'll find out tomorrow), but much appreciation for the better hints from fellow participants... I at least have a chance now, where before I didn't have a clue...

Grateful the hints

only make sense to me after I find the song but solidify my choice once it's made.
Todays song is from a really, really, really Great show I had not heard. Thank You David Lemieux!

how is today's "hint" a hint?

it is basic knowledge.

Hint: The Grateful Dead played at Woodstock.
Hint: Robert Hunter wrote lyrics.


I'll just listen from now on.

Sincerely, folks, have a grateful day!!!

Yep....I found this to be quite a challenge. What's that you say, a special guest on NFA? Holy leap'n Leopards!

Boom goes the dynamite

I am definitely on a roll people have commented before, there are definitely a few clues in this song that narrow it down tremendously and make it very easy to pin-point. Upside out or inside down, false alarm, the only game in town!

I learned early on to listen to the entire track before spending much time hunting around for shows. It's like putting together a piece of furniture, how it says "read all instructions before starting". Nobody does it, but if you do, it can make your job a bit easier...

Hints are really beside the point here.

There are only a handful of versions that come even close to fitting the bill if you've listened with care to the track in full...

Smokin' version full of Phil bombs, great Jerry licks and Brent and Bobby beltin' it out. This was a fun one. Theres definitely some spots in the song that stand out as a clue. Love the remaster of this one too, as the ones floating around already sound a little like there at double speed.

I thought I had it for a 10

I thought I had it for a 10 second stretch there... two hours later I still don't know

There are two audible points of triangulation that quickly narrow down the possibilities to just a few shows. It was fun listening to them, all from my first years seeing the band!

Thanks for the hints! keep 'em comin'!

I personally enjoy the hints! like sayin yesterday's was 'purty.' that helpedI have been getting most shows right, but I missed cream pudf bc it wasn't in the archive database to hear (i picked 7/16!, ugh). and missed W L A bc I never got to that show... lots of West la's on archive! funny how west coast fans seem more mellow at shows and east coasters react more intensely.. maybe i shouldn't have wasted time goin through all those shoreline and cal expo versions. i knew it was 86-87... but sooo many shows! ok, off to passenger!

30 DAYs -"No man's land, the only game in town" I believe we had a Passenger on our 2011 "30 Days" ride as well. Thanks again for the free high quality downloads. I miss the days when archive was unlimited and not just streaming for the soundboards...

Once Brent joins the band I

Once Brent joins the band I have a much harder time finding the correct show. But, the Grateful Dead universe had mercy on me today. I thankfully found it quickly. I didn't want to spend my whole Saturday listening to 80's Passenger ;)

So, I've never heard a Brent version of this song before!

Too tough for me... good luck everybody!

thought i'd heard it

i always thought i'd heard this song live, i remember feeling like it was at UIC in chicago '87, but the setlist database proves me wrong. i don't know, maybe it was the roses, but it probably was all the drugs.
oh well nice jam and since i could i picked up the whole show while i was at it.

All the boys are filled with energy on this one, smoking!
