Get all the DvD's you can afford, especially the reissued Grateful Dead Movie, and Winterland. In the reissued Grateful Dead movie, the last disk with the extra cuts is heaven on earth. Play that on a nice big screen, with great sound, turn down the lights, and you will see Jerry live.
I must of seen hundreds of shows; very fortunate indeed. It wasn't the first show, but the second, where I the dead were forever etched in my heart & soul. It was a show in the week at the Fillmore in April of 1971, when TC was a guest, and opened the 2nd set with Morning Dew. That entire show is beyond words and remains my favortie to this day, although there are quite a few close to it.
Jerry, Pigpen, Keith, Brent, Jimi, Duane, Janis and to all the rainbow warriors who have moved on to become...... you are missed.

Am I wrong? It's about sharing and getting along. Isn't it?
Age doesn't mean a fucking thing. I saw Jerry once and my wife saw him about thirty times. It all comes down to personal taste. I personally don't like anal folk who shit on younger fans, but thats just me. marye makes a good and unevitable point, we all move on from life. All of the folks who experienced the Grateful Dead will eventually be replaced with people who havn't. Who the fuck cares? Enjoying the music? Well turn it up then!
but if it's any comfort, in the end I think there are going to be more of you than there are of us, and it will just keep going in whatever way it figures out.
The sadest part about being a 22 year old deadhead is that I'll never have the opportunity to see Jerry play :(
I'll take two, as well... :-)

Can't remember the year. ..I know that's shocking but it seems like late 70's maybe a show in Providence...Jerry was set up in the middle...I liked the left and the right sides but he did get into jammin' with Brent.
If you can find a copy of Norfolk 1982, Bobby makes an announcement on stage about the the position changes. I think it's before Peggy-O. I had the tape many moons ago. Maybe it was the quality of the recording, but most of his statement was incoherent. So I have no idea what he said. The last time I remember listening to Norfolk 1982 was in the year 1982. So I could be totally wrong about this. lol.
this problem a lot more, but it hasn't been in evidence so much lately. Sorry for the aggravation!
