I remember the fireworks at the end of set one.
That's about all!

Funny you mention those fireworks

Glad to be back on the long road home.
As I saw it they were exploding from within Billy's drums! Not possible you say.
Well, the wall of sound was swaying like a "ship of fools", and I couldn't tell how Bob Weir could play that well with only one arm!
P.S.
This was to be a three show run, but they just couldn't get unloaded and down to Jersey after Watkins Glenn.
Also, Phil was at the sound board during the Band.

Fireworks

I remember the fireworks too, but thought they were both on stage and in the sky. Jersey City was pretty raw, but the show was fun. I remember a Rheingold beer sign, all illuminated. The Band played a good opening set, I wish I could remember what they played. I think the crowd was restless for the DEad and wanted them to hurry off.

The First of the First

I must have gone both nights. The song list is VERY familiar. I clearly remember the Tennessee Jed. That was the first time Jerry "looked at me"!

This was my first concert

This was my first concert after enlisting in the Air Force, basic training, and tech school. I probably had the shortest hair in the place. I had a great time. It's a REAL good thing no AP's strolled by my location as I "partook" of what was "partakable".

This was my second show and

This was my second show and I always consider it to be the best show I ever saw. Garcia was very animated that night and I just remember hearing every note he played a clear as a bell! The fireworks were set off when the band went back into the Playing the Band after an amazing jam. I also remember Loose Lucy being very cool, as it is the first time I ever heard the song.

Those fireworks

I remember my pals and myself staring up at the fireworks long after they stopped. The Bear must have been there!
