What a great day in Boulder. This was my 1st show. I attended with Jeff and Pete, having drove all day and night from Cleveland in the '62 T-Bird. Tickets were either $3 or 3.50 and they played 3 sets for nearly 6 hours. Clean soundboards are tough to find.
Thank you for these photos. I started with the Dead in 1980. I even hitch-hiked to three shows from Boston (Spectrum '85, SPAC '84,and Springfield CC in '85. some of those memories are my best "trips".Wish I had seen the Dead in the West @ Red Rocks, The Greeks, and the Frost shows.
Great adventures for all!!!
I'm a big fan of 1972! The best year for the GD in my opinion. A marriage of the old GD with pigpen, the new vision of exploration of space and beyond, blues, country and folk roots still prevelent. Also, the best sound I think from the band. Garcia and the band using alot of fender amps with JBL speakers mostly, and the sound was so pure, and not processed. Yes, the sound did have color , but it sounded very sweet in color becuase of the tubes. Jerry's tone is incredible from this time period, and if find some of the Bear Aud tapes from the soundboard with shure sm-57's, you'll know how good the band and PA sounded back then.
I wish that for just one time, You could stand inside my shoes, and for just that one moment, I could be you - Bob Dylan, Positively 4th St.
