This is an epic show and took place on Feb. 14th, not the 13th. The boys were on fire on this Valentine's Day so many years ago...

to be sure, the (Two from the Vault) 8-24-1968 New Potato Caboose is in a class by itself, a highlight of that well-played and equally well recorded for the time show. Yet others have staked this 2-14-1968 Caboose as the finest their pointy ears have heard. Certainly this Valentine's has a zap yer mind China Cat Sunflower. And dig the roots of the Anthem of the Sun Alligator. Which reminds me of the lost to the ethers hair-raising Alligator I saw them perform at the Carousel Ballroom (Fillmore West) some 2 years+ later in mid-1970. Don't worry, it's extant in the akashic records just about a mile or two beyond the Sirens of Titan, and can be retrieved by focusing on the ripples originally beamed from our former whereabouts kindly hosted by Billy Graham on a particularly memorable, if non-archived, evening with the Grateful Dead. I do remember they played it (Alligator) at the 1970 date in quest -shn much like the Anthem version, (and thus this VD '68 version) - if anyone else could perhaps tell me they too saw the band perform the intro on kazoos? Garcia's solo at the jam was volcanic... I noticed him turning the volume knob on his axe up seconds prior... and as one song or another reached even higher db levels, finally the amp appeared to blow a fuse... (an effect perhaps enhanced with the loud pop of a cherry bomb and well-timed flash paper ignition), ...and our minds...

I have an alleged copy of this show that opens with a sick Morning Dew . . . Anyone know if that actually happened?

Light Sound Dimension, another act on the show (Lights by LSD) is something that Dead "space/drums" fans should investigate. This group of free-form jazz musicians were influntial on the Dead. they has their own theater In SF and did freeform jazz shows with their own light shows.

I was already a Country Joe fan and went with some friends to see them at this Carousel Ballroom show. But seeing and hearing the Grateful Dead that night was an experience I will never forget. Now forty years later and I still listen to the Dead or one of their member's groups every day.

Between living on Turk St. at Van Ness and showing up at everyDead show in the bay area at this time period. I remember taking this chick (who use to hang out with the Tubes) to this show and we really tripped out. This show totally blew everyone away.... After the show about 20 of us ended up at my Flat on Turk St., which was pretty much the standard procedure after the good shows. Some times we'd be tripping and drive up to Mt. Tam for the sunrise.

I'm one of those people that when they hear about how great a show is they kind of turn away from it because when I listen to it, I find it kind of overrated. Don't get me wrong the show certainly was fascinating. I was even really impressed with how Weir was playing as if somebody dunked his guitar in a vat of acid. The transition from China into 11 always fascinated me too. There is something about the bass organ interplay in New Potato Caboose that really captures me and I've been listening to this show for the past couple of days and it is now my favorite. Now, about New Potato Caboose. A lot of people the one from Two From The Vault as the best ever kind of like the Dark Star from Live/ Dead is the best of that song. For awhile I agreed. Until I heard what Phil was playing in this song. Phil Lesh was very insecure about his bass playing telling anyone who complimented his playing that they were full of shit. For me, the best part about New Potato Caboose is the part between the verses and Jerry's solo where Phil and Pig Pen test the waters. It seems that in this show, Phil has finally become confident his playing and his solo here reminds me of a scene from The Fellowship Of The Ring in which Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) points out the Argonath to Frodo (Elijah Wood). As I hear Phil's solo I can just see those giant statues of the kings of Gondor staring me down. His performance is so commanding that Garcia's solo towards the end is relatively weak. And Spanish Jam. I need to talk about Spanish Jam. This set, the live radio one should have been released on CD. Weir strums his guitar like Segovia, Lesh still strums like a wizard from Middle Earth, and Garcia is channeling some Arabian ghost with his sustained notes.

Heard them many times after this at their studio on Shotwell Street. They also played at the acid test at SF State. Jerry Granelli, Noel Jukes, Fred Marshal, Bev Bevins and others who did the lights... time fades the names
