Attendees of this show
Who are you people, and why do you keep following me around?
Easily one of the best shows I've ever seen. Check out the interplay between Jerry and Brent on "Shakedown". Awesome! A hometown show for me and my first dosage (My 5th show). Great memories.
This was both my first show and my first trip. It was an unusually chilly day with a snowy mix blowing across the Spectrum parking lot. Filled with that soon to be familiar glow of good vibes emanating from the crowd... folks wandering around singing "Going where the climate suits my clothes"... The white spotlights sparkling off of Jerry's guitar (Rosebud, I believe) as he belted out "Inspiration, move me brightly" during one of the many crests in Terrapin... Driving home through the University City underpass on the Surekill Expressway feeling like I was inside a video game. Incredible, unforgettable night all around. I was hooked, and saw them every chance I got until the end.
If you get confused, listen to the music play!
Great show. Great trype. Couldn't find my car afterwards. Luckily ran into a hometown buddy ealier while wandering the halls who helped me find it. Followed the white road lines and multi colored swirling light show all the way home to NJ. Whew!
for whatever reason the dead have always played great shows in phila. and this show proves my point. highly dosed by the time the second set started . shakedown blew me away i can still see the notes comming out of the speakers. the bit of space from truckin to the other one. killer. another one of my many favorite shows
I was a high-school senior, and this was my first Dead show. The only music I knew at the time were the handful of popular studio recordings that still serve as FM radio fodder today. I had seen perhaps half a dozen bands at the Spectrum by this point, and I remember thinking that this was the first real MUSIC I had heard there. I recall this evening's "Shakedown Street" as the single most memorable live performance I've ever attended (with the possible exception of an Elvis Costello concert in which some jerk swiped my brother's pipe and chucked it at Elvis, although it missed him and hit his guitarist...he had been angry that Elvis wasn't playing any of his more popular tunes). I can still remember the feeling of almost being lifted off my seat in the half-step progression back to the verse riff at the end of the long Jerry/Brent jamming...similar to a feeling I got once at a Vienna performance of Fidelio during a spectacular rendition of the 3rd Leonore Overture. Not many bands have been able to achieve such a Beethovenian effect. I hope that Jerry and Ludwig have had a chance to chat together in the afterlife...I'm sure they'd have a lot to talk about.
Recently listened to this show again and I might be biased cause it was my first show but this show was really good.The band was on fire and the crowd was crackling with energy. Snowed the whole ride there from the Jersey shore and Cold Rain and Snow opener was very appropriate.Great rockin first set,long spacy second set sealed the deal. Bit the hook that night and was reeled onto the bus which keeps coming around so to speak. Download this one fo sure !

I remember this show ... if anybody out there had taken Amtrak to this show and remembers the Bong party in the bathroom on the train, all we heard was knockin on the door and when we opened the door a huge billow of smoke followed us out and there was a line of business men in line for the bathroom . I think there was 10 of us in this tiny bathroom. Great adventure going to philly by amtrak and saying overnight. Nothing left to do but smile smile smile................
