my 2nd dead show and i was

my 2nd dead show and i was quickly becoming a full fledged deadhead.
hung out all day with the legion.
tripped the light fantastic.
sat in the balcony.
made it down to the floor and swirled with girls.
tried looking for the band after the show near the airport to no avail.
i think we ended the night at 20 north to see jakes leg.

Keith and Donna Jean's Next-To-Last Show

I think this was Keith and Donna Jean's next-to-last show, or very close to that.

Wonderful "Heart of Me" and "Might As Well"!

Phil's bass shook Kiel's mighty walls and we drove back to Central Missouri in a van with one of our English Professors who remarked: "They're STRONG!".

Indeed they were.

What a night

This was the second time going to see The Grateful Dead; I was a student at Wash U. and had seen The Dead on their previous stop in St. Louis. It was a bitterly cold midwest night with a bone-chilling prairie wind ripping through. Sneaked on to the floor for the second set with my friend Don and we were dancing our hearts out by the sound board when there was a push from behind. All of a sudden I was about five rows from the stage and I remember the rush being kind of scary. Luckily Don was still with me and he just whisked me off of the floor, out of the aisle and onto a chair. When I looked up, Jerry was right there in front of me; it was wonderful to be so close! I was pretty high that night and honestly one of the only songs I remember was U.S. Blues; by that time of the night I had "come down" enough to focus on the name of the song. And, I remember too, because there was a guy walking around the venue in a big tall Abe Lincoln sort of hat that was painted red, white, and blue--a nice visual reminder of the encore. This was the last Dead show I was to see for twelve more years, and it was a great one!

No magic in set 1 until the Music set-closer. The highlight of the 2d set is China > Rider, but Terrapin, Stella & Miracle are all very good, and the Playing is generous (as noted by someone on Archive) if not mind-blowing. Decent set 1, VG set 2, 7.5/10 overall
