^ I remember everyone during the chorus of "I will Survive!" and Jerry smiling at the crowd in appreciation. GREAT start to the Show. Also dancing to Iko Iko to start the second. Sweet!
Three really great shows. Energy from the crowd was crazy. Too many great moments with Jerry singing a lyric and the crowd went nuts. Went through mail order on a whim not believing I had a chance and got all three nights. Brought some really good Ganja back with me on my flight back to NH not realizing how crazy that was. I really wish they would release a compilation of these three shows.
Me and my girlfriend drove to these shows from Cincinnati, Ohio. I t was an extremely clod road trip. we were driving a Datsun B210. A total piece of crap, broke down several times. By the Time we got to the parking lot We were not going anywhere. (Back in the good old days when you could camp in the parking lot. Anyway, Ended up with broken radiator, we found somebody with a large bus with a welding torch and it was fixed for good. I had a great time as these shows Longest I ever drove for 3 shows
I was playing golf in Oakland with a good buddy and he had said previously Ramrod and Francis always wanted himn to come to a show since he had always gotten them tickets to Warriors and Bullets basketball games.
I told him that I thought the Dead were playing across the highway as Garcia ahdn't offed himself with the white horse and maybe we should go try to check it out. Now these buggers had screwed me out of about 5 free pinball games when i was a 11 year old punk before Little League practice in Magoos in Menlo Park by unplugging my machine to set up their gear in the mid 60's.
They tried to be sneaky by changing their name from the Warlocks, but some kids never learn (words from Sam Shepard and Bob Dylan in the greatest ballad ever "Brownsville Girl") or forget.
Well like I say sometimes paybacks ain't a bitch and we ended up on a sofa on stage right way up stage. All I can remember was a lot tears flowing from my eyes and many others too and unending beers flowing from an ice cold ice chest.
I thought hey played "Black Peter" but my memory fades into the smoking craters of my mind a bit too often.
Thisis my first post here but something made me want tos eeif there was any video of this show as my friend has pssed and is listening to Jerry play harp high in the clouds and would love to see some of that show. peace and love all
