Europe '72, Olympia Theatre, Paris, France May 3, 1972
This is the ticket stub from my first Dead show. Third row seat on the aisle, right in front of Pigpen.
This Iowa farmer's daughter nodded off during the space jams, and woke up to the mirror ball hanging from the middle of the theatre ceiling spinning to "Casey Jones".
I bought my "American Beauty" vinyl album in Paris. It is un-playable and the cover is falling apart, but I will never throw it away.
