What a beautiful magical scene for a memorable 3 night run! Perfect weather and no hassles. And, the band was in top form.

Can anyone say, "Stir It Up!" Wow, what a mind blower to hear Jerry singing Bob Marley! And, the 2nd night..... it was Jazz Dead! And to boot, Healey was experimenting with the FM transmitters at the time so anyone who was within a 1/4 mile of the venue was able to tune it in on their radios. So, the fact that I did not have a ticket for night # 2 was no problem as there was a beautiful scene in the parking lot with a bunch of heads gathering and everyone cranking their radios and dancing like we were in the show - because we were!

Needless to say, their were some crispy sounding FM tapes of these shows floating around pretty soon after word.

I remember the parking lot and was probably at the same spot as you this night? All I really remember was TLMD and saying I can't believe they are playing it.
