Fun Trip

What a great bunch of music we heard, Santana with The Dead in Tacoma, then Jimmy Cliff, Robert Cray and The Dead in Eugene.I remember Jimmy Cliff informing us that,"I don't like raggae music...I LOVE RAGGAE MUSIC!!..."

Hot Day

All I remember is this was the hottest I've ever been in my life!

Without love in the dream, it'll never come true

Dead family shows are a church where I've often been reborn, recharged to go back out into the mundane world ...RC, even GD, were for me just a bonus after witnessing Jimmy Cliff, spiritual master.

First show

This was my first show, and I was ecstatic. Shakedown Street was going on in the parking lot, and Eugene has had a love affair with the Dead for a long time.

A few memories:

1. Jerry said "Saddy dat down and cried" during Half-Step.

2. A plane with a banner flew over the crowd with some weird message. I think this happened during "Victim."

3. The show was fairly mundane by Dead standards, but I will always remember the euphoria of seeing the Boys for the first time, and leaving Autzen with a smile on my face.

A Fine Hot Day

Danced hard to Jimmy, strolled around people watching during Robert Cray and danced near the medic tents at the back of the floor. Shade was scarce, and there were SO many wilted flowers at the medic tent.
Wasn't the banner behind the plane for Otis Spunkmeyer (sp) cookies? The phrase "there's something spunky in the air" comes to mind. The kids they dance and shake their bones!

when i came alive!

my first show. went to see robert cray and the dead blew me away to singing songs i never heard and dancing with thousands! It was then 80's and I finally found where my tribe had gone. it was a b-day present. a rebirthday!. the banner was for Fred orther; a cool Doctor who was running for office. I remember the big water hoses. And the roses.

Below average

The band was on autopilot and it was a very uninspiring gig. Throwin' Stones was ok but the rest was just going through the motions. I guess after you have played a few thousand venues it's gets tough to get it up sometimes.
