Housemates first show!!!

I remember handing my housemate Chris ( from the University of Rhode Island ----- Go "High Noon") one of the three hits of acid we had in the bathroom of the Meadowlands bathroom and heading out into the crowd for another:interesting night of music,hackysack playing, and overall laughter and total enjoyment (general manic hysteria, actually).

I drove there with some other friends (Stacie, Karen,and Maria).
Glad I checked the oil before, I put in ONE GALLON, not one quart!!!

Solid MF'n show. From

Solid MF'n show. From Mississippi Half-Step to Jack Straw, to Cumberland Blues to the really great Deal (I totally remember this Deal - I've looked for Deals to be this great ever since - doesn't always happen), to the entire 2nd set & encore this show is dead on. This one was "worth the trip".

The Sheraton / To Melt-me Down/ Ballad of a Thin Man

Cub,
Just what the parking lots needed up there, finally someone built a hotel with-in sight of the Brendan Barn arena.

We were spending this whole show danc'in around the circular (uncarpeted) hall, located @nose-bleed 101, behind the Last-Possible Row of seats. This is where all of the 3 for 2 ticket-stubs gang would end up.

I remember pausing when the reflected white light from a single spot was resembling a strobe of lighting bolts coming off the stage from the reflections of Jerry's guitar strings during To Lay Me Down. And then All watching Bob belt-out an electrifying version of Bob Dylan's "Ballad of a Thin Man". Track 7 Grateful Dead's 2002 HDCD audio release of "PostCards of the Hanging".
Thank-you for another Real Good Time.
