My buddy Mikes's 1st show. Lucky bastard.

Mike said he was looking for a New Speedway all night. He didn't get it but he didn't do too bad here. He says he finally caught it in The Garden in 1991. He was not at all disappointed.

Here is the setlist:

07/02/71 (Fri) Fillmore West - San Francisco, CA

Set 1: Bertha, Me And Bobby McGee, Next Time You See Me, China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider, Playing In The Band, Loser, The Rub, Me & My Uncle, Big Railroad Blues, Hard To Handle, Deal, Promised Land, Good Lovin'

Set 2: Sugar Magnolia, Sing Me Back Home, Mama Tried, Cryptical Envelopment > Drums > The Other One, Big Boss Man, Casey Jones, Not Fade Away > Goin' Down the Road Feeling Bad > Not Fade Away, E: Johnny B. Goode

By this time, the Dead were playing the "That's It For The Other One" suite without the final "Cryptical" outro. I always wondered why. However, a few late 1971 shows did preserved the original Cryptical>Drumz>Other One>Cryptical format.

My First Show

I had read "On the Road" and hung my thumb out pointing west from Peoria. I was crashing in Berkerley with with an older women named Merlin. She offered to treat me any show liked. Jerry played pedal steel with the first two bands, The Rowan Bros(?) & NRPS. The first bands I'm little hazy on but there may have been ... you know. The mocking birds have started to sing, so good night.

my first show

On one particular episode of the old Dick Van Dyke show, DVD's character, Rob Petrie, is eating dinner at home. He is so preoccupied by his work that he mows down dinner like a pirrhana. Later, he asks his wife what he had just eaten. She told him and he said, "Aw DARN IT! I LOVE that!", meaning that he failed to enjoy the dinner because his mind was somewhere else. This analogy is probably a 75% match to my current assessment of this show. Before this, the only Dead album's I'd heard were Live Dead and Workingman's Dead. I waited in line all day so not only did I end up right in front of Phil, but I had all that time to process being exposed to a "Dead crowd", which was a much different atmosphere than the crowds at the other shows that week. Not long after they let us inside the auditorium somebody passed out blotter acid which I took. So by the time the band took the stage I was totally mesmerized by everything going on. I didn't know most of their material so at show's end I walked out of there thinking wow what just happened? After reading what the set list was, my only reaction is...aw darn, I LOVE those songs!

My third show...

Although I'd seen the Dead once before, at Michigan State, I was still not particularly familiar with the music, so my reaction is much like This One above - aw darn, I LOVE those songs.

It was a thrill to get to the Fillmore before it closed...I've never seen a show in any venue like it. A total immersion psychedelic scene. I was at the Summer Session at UC Santa Cruz that summer, after my freshman year at Michigan State, and discovered this show. I hitchhiked up to San Francisco to get tickets to this show and the Hot Tuna/Quicksilver show, back to Santa Cruz, then a week later, back to San Francisco for the show. The guy I hitched with and I figured, hey, San Francisco, how hard could it be to hitch a ride back to Santa Cruz? Well...not so easy, it turned out. We stood at the entrance ramp to the freeway in the wee hours for a good two hours, with residual visuals still crawling around the pavement, before we finally got a ride south...to Watsonville, from whence we still had to hitch back to UCSC. Got to school about sunrise, went to bed long enough to rest up a little to go back to SF for the Tuna/Quicksilver show. Fortunately, my companion for that show had a Porsche and some pretty darn good speed, so the trip to that (excellent!) show was a lot zippier.
