We Can Run...they didnt play that enough if you ask me...and i do believe I was in the front row for that one...My Buddy and me cut in front of 18,000...and I was the first 1 there, Jerry was on stage checkingt his equipment...I couldnt say anything to him cause i was out of breath from running down there LOL....Bobby and the GREEK (geek) Theatre are coming up soon YEAH....
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.

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 David...it's great to hear these dead hours again
Essentially the Spanish Jam, is it not? Tasty.
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.
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 !!
