Let Phil Sing

4-27-85 Frost must be the show where the audience chanted "Let Phil sing!" until Phil obliged -- with a Dylan song I'd never heard, but there it was all the same. The audience gave a rousing cheer after each verse (less so as the song progressed); never was it so clear to me that this was "our" band.

Who'd have thought we had such influence over them? We should have shouted "Morning Dew!" more often ;-)

VW Microbus with Implements of Destruction

I remember going to this one with my roommate Tim from U.C. Santa Cruz. We drove up in my orange and white '74 VW bus. I'm pretty sure some other people came with us but but my memory is fading. I'd been seeing the Dead since '79 but I'm fairly certain that this was the first time I heard Phil sing (in person). I vaguely remember Jerry saying something pretty funny before they starting in on Tom Thumb's Blues (like "...I think we'll keep him"???) but, again, my memory is fading. If anyone can fill in the gaps here it would be most appreciated.

I remember the "Let Phil sing" chant,and Jerry saying,"We're going to hold on to him for awhile,he's ours".On my tape all I can here is "he's ours",and my memory is well....Great show at a great venue on great...

years later

This 2nd set was rare at the time although in 84 they started breaking up Scarlet / Fire this was still rare enough to make us look at each other during the Scarlet jam into Going down the road with that look. You know the one were your not sure what's going on but you know it's not going to be Fire. Then to rip into Going Down the road into Eyes was just so much fun. Dance your butt off 2nd set.
