I 've been to many Alpine shows.. Through MUD and Rain and Cold and Burning Heat.. The worst thing I ever saw happen is some Unkind person threw a frisbie and hit Jerrys guitar dead center... That was the end to the show..What a sad thing !
Please preform random acts of kindness !
Our own person Greateful Dead only woodstock..
Tons of mud, rain, corn fields..
The first night was extraordinary with And We Bid you goodnight.. I called it in three notes.. I spent much of the next two days completely out of my mind.. I remember someone following me (seemingly) everywhere I went saying, peanutbutter honey banana bagels for a buck...
it wasn't until my first completely Sober show that I realized people sell these at shows.. and I probably just happened to be wandering the same way the vendor was.
Looks Like Rain at this show was Bob at his very soulful best.. I loved every single minute of these three days.. and the group I went with met up with another group from our hometown, and we made a little tarp city between all of cars in the parking lot.. *sigh* now I really miss Jerry.
First Dead show, anyway. Elvis Presley was my first show, technically and I was just a sprout... Elvis was the size of an ant, as we had nosebleeder seats.... so my memories are a bit vague.
But this show here.... I basically checked my head in at the gate and forgot to grab it on my way out. I'm still there. (Have a giant purple rose tatted on my head with some tribal, if I must prove my story.)
I was there for all three days and nights, miracled in on the 3rd. Someone slipped me a sun ticket as I went strolling up past security, towards the bassline, but I was so stoned, I had no idea what a sun ticket was or that, if I left, I would probably stay wherever I was parked.
But my storebought seat was just out of the rain, though.... it remained vacant for the remainder of the show as there was a little sweetie getting down right next to me and well, you know how it goes. I was 19.
Come on... someone's got the whole vid.
You know who you are.
These Alpine shows were fantastic. After waking up the morning after the first show to rain and then more rain for day three, there was nothing to do but enjoy to the fullest. All three nights my friend and I got set up at the front of the lawn, dead-center, which were fine "seats." Two things I vividly recall from this show are:
1. Watching the dancers going nuts in the mud to the far left of the stage during "Hell in a Bucket." Serious high leg stepping dancing going on.
2. There was a big crackle of lightning causing a brief sound problem during the Other One during set 2. I have a SBD of this show and that problem does not appear. Must have only come through the speakers that night-- I should listen to an AUD to find out.
Great experience all together, rain and all.
We also needed help getting out of the lot after this night. These were great shows, but upon reflection, they were bittersweet. These were the last shows that I saw Brent w/ the Dead, and would only see 5 more Dead shows after this until the end came after seeing 40 + shows in the 80s...
Weren't these also the last Alpine Valley GD shows? End of an era...
