Brent tribute

This was the era when I discovered the Grateful Dead and when I saw a majority of the shows I was privileged to attend.

I miss Brent.
I miss Jerry.

last show

Thank you David. At the time Brent passed on I didn't get to hear these tribute shows. As you did back then, can you play the tribute to Jerry, and the last show the band did too?
Thank you so much for many hours of joy this brings to me.

Is...absolutely rippin! Happens to be my 1st show.... they used to play this and some other tunes from the two night run in Hartford on WHCN a lot back in the day....that's where I started listening to the dead hour.....Right before the lights went down my roomate (a big Brent Fan) told me... "check out Brent...he really gets into it". Boy did he ever. Thanks's great to hear these dead hours again

really digging this retrospective. In hindsight, I should have taken a couple of years off and seen every show from mid-89 til the end of Fall '91. Truly a great era of the Dead.

Garcia tribute

There is a multi-part JG tribute in the GD Hour archive, and one for Vince Welnick, too. They'll all get posted eventually.

WOW - absoloutley beutifull - miss you Brent -

Thank you David ,, I have always loved Brents work ,but never realized the impact he really had on the Dead .. the old say`ing "you never know a man until he is gone" .. Sweet , thanx for all your hard work David .. Have you or had you done a memorial show for Jerry ? Maybe some of his work with Grismon , like "Shady Lane" , I think that was his last one with Grismon , ? Have a Grateful Day !!
