Attendees of this show
I had a small recollection of this show. I remember Santana playing on Not Fade Away. What I had a hard time with was when this show was. I moved from SF to Lake Tahoe this month. I DON'T remember the Beach Boys AT ALL! I have become a huge fan of theirs over the years. The 6 part harmonies they do are truly amazing! Saw them just a few years ago and they still got it!
I have an old cassette boot of this and I am on some sort of trivial personal crusade to set the record straight about this show ... Joan Baez came out after the Dead finished US Blues and introduced the members of the band, then she called all the musicians that had performed that day out onto the stage, and they all sang a Joan staple titled "Bridging the Gap." So Amazing Grace DOES NOT follow US Blues ... I can prove it.
I passed out flyers that I made that said, "Young Enuf to Dance! Young Enuf To Die!" with a chick in shooting pose in camoflage.

I hear a brief, subtle tease of this during Tenn. Jed? Anyone else?
