My first New Year's Eve, and still one of the most memorable, most hilarious time I ever had. Bill Graham looked as surprized as everybody else when they started hauling him across the ceiling to the stage. Jesus, that acid was amazing, though I was a tad freaked out by the end of the first set. Recovered during intermission, then laughed the rest of the night. Whew! Still gets the hairs on the back of my neck standing up!
Listening now, courtesy of www.radioio.com and the Dead channel, and this Sugaree rocks. Lots of Brent!! Is the rest of the show this good?
The joy that started on Dec. 15 continued through the end of the year. If you were there, or if you've heard the tape, you'll recall how fun it was to hear "U.S. Blues" at the end of set I. We were very close, 3rd or 4th row...I vividly remember Jerry's voice trembling with so much emotion when he sang the line "Give me five, I'm still alive."
I attended this whole run- 4 shows in all, and my only west coast shows. It's all now a blur, and I only have two sets (1st night's first set which is great, and the following night's second set w/the Scarlet-Fire). I remember thinking," I had no idea San Francisco was this friggin' cold." It was cold and damp every day...Finally, I distinctly recall a point in the David Crosby solo acoustic set when, in between songs, Crosby went on this long anti-drug rant...Seriously...he went on and on...I think this sort of 'community service' was tied to his probation from getting busted the upteenth time for coke...This whole run is lively, but I still think that 12/15/86 is the show to listen to from this period (that Touch and Candyman are mindblowing). Peace...ps: Phil started this whole run off by saying," Oh, so you want to polka." and then they went into a sweet Playin'- jam- Bertha...
remember how they tried to stop it but gave up, what a trippy tent city
Thanks for your memory, i now remember Phil saying That... And David , and the Neville Brothers! Wow. this was my first of two years with the balloon crew, a most fun job working for this Family.
I LOVE You So Very Much, all these memories of feelings and the Love and Music and You Are The Very Best and I got to be here too, Can't wait for the next Family Picnic, FURTHUR... I have a bunch of hugs to share, for i need hugged by someone really strong too, that knows what their doing... ALL YOU!!! ALL LOVE
We would be there for a week, the Dead played so many shows there... it was Heaven!
