If you could go back in time, knowing what you do now, if given the choice, would you rather have attended 8/27/72?

"From day to day, just lettin' it ride,
You get so far away from how it feels inside,
You can't let go, 'cause you're afraid to fall,
But the day may come when you can't feel at all."

if i had already seen the Wembley show that would be the choice because of Pig.

I did see Pig 3 other times though

Could be the passage of time playing tricks, but I am convinced they played 'Caution/Alligator'

First show for me. What an introduction to Dark Star and that Caution just blew us away. To see Pigpen was a honour.

was an echoey cavern of a place, not sure what i remember of the show from the time and what from listening to it over the years.

I was quite a way back from the stage and the sound was not normally very good.

I had already seen the Dead once before but since then Working Mans and Beauty had come out so my expectations were different.

The Stoke show was like a watered down Live Dead, but Mungo Jerry who were before them were so High energy that the comparison was different, also it was only with Workingman's that i really started to like the Dead. I was a big Airplane fan.

Out of the first set of the show only 3 songs would have been familiar, but basically it was the style of Dead i was used to.

Set 2 started in a familiar way but was soon to change dramatically, the Truckin' stretched not the Country Rock song i was used to then a VERY different Dark Star to the Live Dead version, again this i have been listening too since Glastonbury Fayre came out, i bought the album just for this edited version. You can imagine my delight when the whole sequence came into circulation thanks to David G .
familiar territory to end the set but again a different Caution to Anthem

I know i came out knowing i had seen something special. My friends i went with were big Deadheads then so i had heard stuff through them first

listen to the show on it's 36th birthday
