What was that orange tab???

Other than the hard stop in at the end of Crazy Fingers the second set is continuous. Stellar.

Too damn hot!

This was the first Grateful Dead show that i was on the local crew and actually was "chosen" to work with Steve Parish. What a thrill albeit shortlived because Steve was in a foul mood (probably exacerbated by the extreme heat and what appeared to be an argument with Graham Jr.) and ended up (LITERALLY) throwing some poor dosed deadhead (that somehow managed to get up on the stage) off the 8 foot high platform. OUCH! that will leave a mark.

the bus came by...

This was my first show since the Dead didn't make stops anywhere near Arizona very often. We drove up from Tucson and waited for what seemed an eternity to park in the dusty lot. Of course it was worth the wait. Terrapin>drumz>Mr. Fantasy was incredible. Brent will always be my favorite keyboardist - nobody plays the Hammond like he did!

It was so hot at that show. The traffic was horrible came down from Telluride, what a mistake.

Cash

At this show in between the sets like every other show we would gather to smoke or whatever else.I look down and found a large roll of cash. I mean a large roll. $ 3200 to be exact. No way could I keep that. so we put the word out that we found a large sum of money. Next Night in Salt Lake my friend bernie comes up to me and said the money was his from someone back east. He knew the exact amount and I just knew he had lost. . ..... not bad for a guy that was very strung out at that point
