The roadtrip to the hometown

The roadtrip to the hometown with my 2nd-year college buddies. A fabulous time indeed!

What a night!

MY 25th birthday. Drove in from Des Moines with Kim. Temps were frigid and they kept the doors closed until just before showtime. A mass of people huddle together to keep warm. Wonderful show. Truck engine fired up at start of Truckin'.On the way back to Des Moines, the heater went out in Kim's VW. The coldest ride in my life plus trying to keep the windows fog free to see out of. Great show. Magical Scarlet/Fire!

Snuck in the venue during load-in

Walked right through the load in doors like I knew what I was doing. My friend and I went up to press box and played cards for hours waiting for the doors. Best memory was the house lights went down and they fired up the semi-trucks flanked at each end of the stage and launched into "Truckin". I was a junior at UNI at the time. Great first show!

My first show. A very cold night. Friends and I had waited for years to see the band and finally they were right here in Iowa.

I remember at age 21 seeing how old many of the folks were -like in their late 20's and into their 30's. And all the hair and beards on the guys, lots of folks had cut their shoulder length hair by this time, but not here. The Iowa hippies had come out of the woods and the farmhouses.

We stood on the floor, not too far from the band, to the right and could not believe how good this band was live. The crowd I was with had been listening to GD records since Europe 72 came out.

Also first show for my wife and brother and the three of us with many other friend have been grooving on it all and seeing the various present day projects of the boys when we this day.

Thank you Jerry, Bob, Bill, Mickey, Phil, Keith and Donna!

as far as I know there is no commercial release of this, but if you go over to the Tape Trading and Vineyard areas in the forums and ask around, someone might very well have this show for you.
