My favorite show of alltime.

My favorite show of alltime. The company, easy to move around, great songs, lots of zoit dancers and spinners filled the halls, it was a deep groove all night long. For years I thought it was all in my memory that this show had it all, and then when someone miracled me the show it all came back. It stands as the show that puts the biggest grin on my face every time I hear it.

Late Spring Snow Storm

I seem to remember a late spring snow storm (one year) while I was still in high school - was this the show (anybody remember) We hadn't had snow all year and everyone was dressed for spring and the parking lots were snowed in when we came out after the show. It was bizarre and just heightened the sense of wonder and continued astonishment from another righteous show! "Deep groove" indeed!

My 1st Show

For this show, my girlfriend's older brother and his buddies were camping out on the street in front of the Philly ticket office for a couple days. They tagged us to fill in one of the night shifts in echange for two tickets. Amazing, a real signpost to new space. I didn't know people slept out on the street together, singin all night, having loads of fun. We ended up with two 6th row center seats.

My biggest memory is standing on my seat and playing air guitar, just loving this whole new adventure, getting a bit too excited and falling off my seat. Standing back up, Jerry is smiling and laughing at this new Head discovering the fun and silliness of it all.

Terrapin crescendo and they sat there

i remember being on the floor about halfway to the stage right side facing the stage and the terrapin jam went louder and LOUDER and CRESCENDO after CRESCENDO and i looked to my right and there were the Philly fans just sitting there?

i got outta my seat went in the aisle between the chairs and the lower level and orchestrated the fans to stand up as this was terrapin at its greatest

maybe it was too new for the audience but i still can't believe they sat there during the Terrapin jam flourish finish

memories......

'77 was great when it happened we knew Cornell [w/Row Jimmy---> Dancin'] was special as was Rochester and Hartford and Bufffalo

i said in '77 that it was time for Donna to leave but my friends really gave me sh*t about it for criticizing the line-up.....til two years later......ergo without Donna, Cornell is arguably the greatest of the greats

ok Donna i know we smiled and waved at each other when i was front row at the Tower in 1976 but hey you just were offkey a bit okay? don't take it personally--i just preferred the way it was back in '73-'74 when you wailed out a playin' .....and took your seat again.......the current Dead NEED ANOTHER VOCALIST.......WARREN IS OFFKEY on vocals

GUYS LET ME AUDITON ! NOW !

if you aren't satisfied get Joan or somebody ! Bobby's vocals are spot on he needs assistance other than Phil and Warren.....

My First Time!!!! And It was Great.

For the longest time I thought the May '78 show at the Spectrum was my first. But I just recently found the old Ticket stubbs from my teenage concerts. And sure enough there it was Grateful Dead April 22nd 1977. Anyway nomatter the year. It still started out the same way. My sisters friend went to a show the summer B4 and was at my house after. And could'nt stop smilin' about how great it was. so My bestfriend and I got ourselves some money and pitched in on the "Steal Your Face" LP and fell in love with the sound. We wore that album out all year until they came around again. which like I said, I thought was '78 but I was a year off. And just like that instant Dead Heads
I remember coming out to the snow like "gdtrfb58" and the others said. We took the subway and speedline in from Jersey so we had to get back home the same way. The jams I remember most were of course Terrapin, and Must of been the Roses. But Jerry's Guitar on El paso and Tennessee Jed was just amazing. In '78 they also did Terrapin and El Paso so thats were the shows got muddled. Anyway I'm ramblin' here. God Bless Jerry Garcia & The Rest Of The Grateful Dead!!!!!
