Redrocks, 7/8/78

Somebody sing me back home for this wonderful show, the 2nd of 4 shows during the summer of 1978 near Morrison, CO. The triple encore of Terrapin > Saturday Nite > Werewolves is unforgetable. Check out the great photos for both 7/7/78 and 7/8/78 within this website.

RE: Todays Haight St. Kids

I assume "C C" is talking about Haight St kids post 1989. We can't put everyone in the same bucket. Old Haight St. "Rainbow Family," are always coming back to school the new crews- and there's always at least one or two who will pick up the proper protocol, and pass it on. There's almost always one group of "Real" ..."Haight Streetians" with all the right info. and love somewhere between Masonic and the park. We move between Santa Cruz and home (The Haight) but we can be found most everyday. So, not EVERY SINGLE group of hangouts are squatting in disguise. Were still here. Just be careful who you trust. As I was schooled back in 81 by Bill the Cat, "Shea, not EVERYONE in tyedye is *Trustworthy-Kind-Rainbow-Family!" live & learn.
Hugs to you....
Miracles Eternal,
Shea

1968 is on my short list of really awful years.

Don't forget 1968

Two assassinations, Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, that business at the DNC in Chicago, Prague Spring, the Tet Offensive in Viet Nam, the My Lai massacre, there were other notable incidents such as the Black Power salute at the Olympics in Mexico City, and many many protests.Fun and games.

yeah

people have this idyllic view of the '60s, all peaceful and tuneful and lovey-dovey, and, um, no. Not that way. There was a lot of dark along with the light. Often in the same place.

40 years ago today, 5/4/70

R I P:
Allison Krause, Jeffrey Miller, William Schroeder, and Sandra Lee Scheuer were killed, from live M-1 gunfire, by the Ohio National Guard during a Kent State University protest against expansion of the Vietnam War into Cambodia. I was a senior in high school 30 miles away in Pepper Pike. These were very turbulent times, widespread across our nation.

Grateful Dead played a free concert in memory of these fallen students in Cambridge, MA the next day, 5/5/70.

Ship of fools, on a cool sea...ship of fools, sail away with me

On this date in 1980, Grateful Dead played a 3 set show at the warm and cozy Saenger Theatre, in New Orleans, LA. Set 1 was acoustic, followed by 2 electric sets. A few snippets of the 2nd electric set have been brought out of the vault just this week! A tale that had been circulating indicated the recording equipment had flown from SF to NY: now we know that a soundboard exists. Dan Healy did run a cassette deck off the PA feed, according to someone familiar with what's in the Vault. Today on XM, you can hear China>Rider, Stranger, Ship of Fools, Estimated & an Eyes! This sequence is also on the featured week of 10/12-18, here on dead.net I sure would like to hear the Scarlet > Fire, from 10/19/80, next week! Thanks for the grate memories.
