Another great show. Drove down the coast and met up with my brothers, my Dad and my Stepmom at the show.
I was semi attending Santa Monica High School and my friend at the time Chris MacLean said I needed to go see the Dead.... the rest is history...thanx Chris
I managed to go to 129 shows over my life....Grateful Dead shows....1 marriage... working on 2nd as we speek..I lived in 3 different states...either California..Connecticut or NY during my show spans..now have lived in over 10...and made countless friends along the way...Im sure one or two enemies as well... for that I apologize.....such is life....ive since tried to become a better person...always working on that...still working to my dyeing day!!!!
2nd and 3rd shows in a week. Looking back, I would've taken just a little more notice if I'd realized that I'd never see the band in a hall this small again!
The band was really into their hi-fi amps and axes. The playing reflected this from the previous year; playing everything really concise, clearly (you could even say prissy at times), and everything "just exactly perfect". Things were VERY in tune, and lots of shimmering crescendos. Got some beautiful shows, but generally had this feeling that they were really perfecting their craft, and at some future date they'd "let it all hang out" again and get back to crazy outside space and drums. Sometimes ya just had to call for "What's Become Of The Baby?" and hope.
