Never saw the dead outdoors before this show. For me it lacked the intimacy of the Filmore and Capital Theater in Port Chester - the only other venues I had seen them at up till 8/73. So, it was not a particularly memorable show for me. The music just dissapated and didn't have the impact I guess I had come to expect when it was in your face indoors. I recall it was Jerry's birthday, that the Band played some great songs and there was some rumor that Dylan was lurking around?? I remember the fireworks which were fired from around the top of the stadium. Again, for me, the concert was a let down........however, I have been listening to this show in its entirety - there are some very good recordings and come to realize and see this as a superbly played show. Standout are DS->el Paso->Eyes->Dew simply awesome second set actually.
After the show.. before they left for next show the Broooklyn Hells Angels threw a blowout party for Garcia at a club in Bay Ridge ......300 people at party ....hung with Phil And Billy and laughed the night away .... on nitrous balloons
Still in high school at 15. At the time I thought the Band rocked harder, but Jerry and the gang intrigued me enough to get on the bus and stay til the end. Roosevelt was a pit but they had great shows for four or five years and it was five minutes from my house.
40 years ago tonight I was at this show celebrating my 24th birthday and Jerry's 31st. Great show with the Band.
One of the finest versions of Stella Blue I ever heard
Still makes me cry
I was 16 years old, taken by my close friend Brian and his older brother, Joe Quinn. This on the heels of hearing the opening chords to "Uncle John's Band" from "Workingman's Dead" in Brian's basement, and my realizing that I had arrived at a crossroads that I stand at to this day. The Band opened the night in that hovel of a venue with all the heat and humidity that an August night in the city could offer. They were tight and lyrical. The Dead were fantastic. A man near me was tripping, and was insisting that he had a hot lasagna on his back....
