See my lengthy post on the show from the night before (7/31/82) for the reason why! (Short version -- the band COOKED the night before, played late, and then was supposed to start this show at 2 p.m.! Crash and burn! All we could do was laugh!)
...shall we go, you and I while we can...
I responded on the 7-31 Manor Downs page....
Indeed, but a cool place ....
Let's put it into context; 7/31/82 in Manor was after Red Rocks. To get to Manor we had to drive through Oklahoma City and the another million miles to Manor, then turn around and drive a million miles BACK to OKC for the Zoo show. Many of us, myself included, blew off Manor and rested in Oklahoma City. For those who didn't, band, crew and heads alike were no doubt exhausted.
The 2PM start WAS late and gallon jugs of beer were being sold in the parking lot. I saw more than one cowboy with a gallon jug in each hand.
I skipped manor downs and hitched a super crazy
ride through the wasteland of ok. Thought the show
was good no rain that was a plus. Saw a bunch of birds
fly out of the zoo? Almost got robbed by this dude who
picked me up while I hitched into town to get a ticket at the
local record store. Met some cool kats that took me all
the way to Iowa city. Great tour summer 82.
this was my first show been trying to get a copy of it . got part of it on cassett but they must have sat on left side . no right channel have searched you tube with no luck trying to see any of it
This was the only time I had the privilege of going too a Dead show and I loved it, what I can remember of it. Bet I had a gallon of beer and whatever else was around at the time.
Was still worth the long drives to these shows Red rocks, manor downs , Oklahoma zoo.
