A good time!

Jerry appears to be enjoying himself here. Archive photos go well with this weeks Taper's Section offering of a crazy Playin' In The Band from this show.

How Nice

A legendary show for Iowa Deadheads. A smiling Jerry to give us smiles. Thank you still after all these years.

There he is in his Mars Academy sweatshirt!!

(I misremembered it as a Mars Hotel sweatshirt.) Mars Hotel was their new album, not quite out yet on 1-16-74. That was a day of firsts: first Grateful Dead show, that first Scarlet Begonias, China Cat Sunflower> I Know You Rider, my first Playin', first Truckin', well my first...., that is the day that the veil was lifted. That show is "what got me on the bus".
What a delight that day was. And it still reverberates!
You all know what I mean!!!!!

Doh!

I meant 6-16-74. Just got too jazzed seeing that great shot of Jerry and having a little "Billy Pilgrim" moment as I moved back in time.

I believe it says 'Marin Academy.'

Correction acknowledged, but

at that show, my eyes saw Martian Academy. I must have been in a different state (Iowa) of mind at that point. Surplus dopamine production and domino synapse action. The Dead really set the table " one afternoon long ago".
