My thirteenth Dead show. Spent the day in Bay Area taking girlfriend's girl friend from Philadelphia around Golden Gate Park, North Beach, and Muir woods in Marin County. Came back to Berkeley and drove alone in girlfriend's Dodge van in driving freezing rainstorm after dark for two hours to Stockton. So tired and afraid I'd fall asleep I'd roll window down throw left arm outside and let the rain and cold keep me awake. When arm got too cold I'd drag it back inside. Repeated this all the way to show. Rain pretty much stopped by showtime. Went in and danced on ground floor. For second set went up to balcony to see the show. Afterwards went around balcony collecting leftovers from balcony railings. Lasted me for weeks. Great show, by the way.

Had a friend who's brother was friends with someone with the band....? Andy Rifkin seems to ring a bell. I don't remember ther rain but we did arrive late. Talked our way in for the 2nd set. We entered through backstage but wouldn't let us stay. Saw Mickey as we were ushered into the house. Ended up about 10ft right in front of Jerry! I swear I could have reach out and touch him. Terripin wasn't doing it for me though. I was thinking they really don't have it tonight. Then Jerry cranked it on the main phrase halfway through and I was almost knocked off my feet. Great from then on. I wish I remembered more but I could say that about EVERY show I was every at.

art my 4th or 5th show?Jerry sounded hoarse as his voice broke up on some of the high notes.I think that was why Bobby sang more in the second set.Somebody in the balcony would blow a whistle during the high notes on stella blue to accentuate Jerry's vocal anomally.Rude but funny. Anyone else remember this? We got a kick out of seing the dead in a place like Stockton. No matter, I was hooked by now.

16 year old runaway from North Cackalacky. Traveled to Stockton with my best friend and funaway partner's boyfriend. Bought two hits of *purple microdot* in line and shortly thereafter entered a whole new universe. We were veritable casualties.Spent a very long time washing my hands in the bathroom. Memory is of people sitting and lying all over the floor. Music was matter. Gypsies, sorcerers, wizards, genies "from the north" were everywhere. I never wanted it to end. Got busted arriving back in Berkeley about 4am by BPD and dragged into the station for being a runaway. Got put on a plane that afternoon by the BPD, still tripping balls, to fly back to the rage and wrath of my terribly worried family. Best trip turned into bad trip. I have never looked back.

Jerry could barely sing that night. He must have been sick. He and Bob Weir always switched off songs, and it seemed like in the second set he just chose to have almost all of his "turns" just be jams since he couldn't sing. So the second set had very few songs but was the usual length, with lots of long beautiful music. I was in the balcony and absolutely blown away by how beautiful the long jams were. And when Jerry squeeked out Stella Blue it just made the song even sadder, so even that was beautiful. Amazing night.

Nick, Bagel & I met Mark in Berkeley to head to Stockton for this show. Mark first had to clear his charge for a moving violation at night court... judge dismissed his charge... but I digress. Pouring rain. We're running late!!! We found a miracle parking spot right outside the venue, and walked in to the half-filled venue just as the Boys and Donna kicked into Mississippi half-step uptown toodleloo. We had plenty of space about fifteen feet in front of the band, dead center. Dead Head since my first show in the summer '73, and this is remembered as the one that most blew me away! Jerry's voice was shot... and so just as I hear better with my eyes closed, perhaps he played even better with his voice gone. Who knows. I'd so love for Dave to Pick this one!
