Nice Show

DKNJ: Nice Show, FOTD was of a quicker tempo. I remember Jerry saying "How yall doin?" before the opener. It took about nine years to get into the lot due to the total lack of roadway infrastructure around that dump.

1st show in 7 years

They rocked. Never was a big fan of Brent but he played his ass off that day. They were tuning up for the 1st song and I said to my buddy, "They can't possibly open with Playing in the Band - right?" And then they did. A hot opener to a hot day. Never saw To Lay Me Down before or since, so that was great. Uncle John's Band was red hot. A great summer show....

Vivid Memories

In no particular order, here is what I vividly remember from that show. (granted, I speak about his with all of my fellow heads who went with me or I met there)

Way hot outside (maybe 100)
Drove up from NJ with a Beer Ball tapped in a car (yikes)
Concrete Jungle (trouble getting tent set up in the parking lot)
Woodstocks (Must have ~ If you were there, then u know)
Huge Drum Circle (largest I may have ever seen ~no seriously)
Sunrise
My Best friends first Dead experience (EVER)
Blueberry Pancakes
Traded my extra Buffalo for a Foxboro (it ryhmes I swear ~ try singing and skipping while saying it)
Hot, No Shade and No Water
Green Haze (ok, maybe it was just me)
Gate crashers. crushing the porta- johns
First set Playin in the Band (opened the show with it)
Tennessee Jed (and My friend *1st show yelling Jerrys solo reminded him of spreading butter on bread (could be?)
Our only gallon of water in the show was dosed
(very much so) Did I say It was WAY HOT too
The young girl next to us, grabbing our water without asking and taking a huge swig. (she hurled in about 20 minutes)

I swear I remember this ~ Vividly

I remember trying to get out of the parking lot after the show, not moving at all and buying a Gin and Tonic, falling asleep, then a good friend of mine, Mark, Banging on my window, hours later (I think) scaring me to death.(still in the lot)

Driving home ~ saying I should not be driving home ~ Swerving off the road 1 or 2 times.

Rushing home to get my best friend to court that morning (yikes)

He made it and we look back on that show and weekend as one of the highlights of our lives. REALLY.

If you were there, you know and I would love to hear your thoughts. Eternityblue

ps Sorry for the long rambling

NightLine

Two nights later on a special Fourth of July edition of 'Nightline,' an acoustic performance of Jerry and Bob playing 'This Land Is You Land' with members of Los Lobos aired. It was shot in the parking lot of Sullivan Stadium, out by the busses, with little divider thingies set up to help keep them from attracting a crowd I imagine. I recall nervous roadies in the background looking beyond the partitions to see if in fact the guys banging out this tune was drawing curious folks in or not.
Bob and Jerry and at least one member of Los Lobos took turns singing the verses. Good, good stuff.

First & Only

This was my first (and sadly) only show. It was so HOT! The show and the temps - I remember wet t-shirts and tripping out on the sun setting over the stadium. Awesome experience all around - music, friends and Los Lobos was good too. Amen.

First show of a great Summer tour.....

My buddy and I fixed up his microbus and tripped up and down the East Coast going to every show, which even included the Fall tour in October. It was cool that we were out of PA at the time and that we worked in a bar with a bunch of other deadheads so we could work in between some of the shows.
This was a great tour!
