A hot day! music and temperature wise! The Allman Bros. Band opened and jammed with the Dead for 40 or so mins. at the end. Great show!
Hiya Bluesdad -
I think you are mixing up the '72 and '74 shows at Dillon stadium. The ABB/Dead at Dillon was in July of '72 I am almost certain.
ProbablyDave is correct, there were no ABB on that day in '74 but bluesdad was also right that it was hot that day.
what a jam: Truckin’>Jam>Mind Left Body Jam>Spanish Jam>Wharf Rat. Check it out in the Taper's Section for the week of July 30 - August 5 - you'll be glad you did :)
I was confused for a minute there. All these years and I didn't remember that ABB was there. This was my first show and I was 15. Don't know why my older brother brought me, but sure am GLAD he did! I remember playing in water or being sprayed or something, so it must have been HOT. I know the music was fantastic. Changed my life. Saw many shows after that 7-15 years later with one New Years show thrown in for good measure.
I seem to remember a Phil/ Ned Lagin Seastones set in between sets. Great show, my first, and I remember wondering why Pigpen wasn't there. A kind soul behind me broke the sad news that he had passed away a year or so before. I fell in love with Donna Jean that night.
I was at this show with my friend Lainie for her 15th Birthday
I turned fifteen 10 days later !
We are 50 now and still best friends
Went to the Grateful Dead continuously form 71-95
This was probably my favorite Dead show that I ever attended. It was a VERY hot day, temperature wise as well as musically, but the Dead played well into the evening so it seemed like we were there all day & nite. The ABB were not there and Neal and Phil definitely did their Seastones electronic thing between the 2nd and 3rd sets. I knew instantly that U.S. Blues would become one of THE Dead classics. This remains a dream show for me!
Remember hearing 'To Lay Me Down' for the 1st time. It seemed to go on forever. THE BOYS were having much great fun that day. Three sets - Ouch! Maybe cars stopped on I-91 checking out the show too?
Cars were stopped on 91 It was a wonderful day. Some rodie climbed the wall of sound behind Phil and covered one ear and stuck the other six inches from from each speaker all the way up to the top .
i wo,der how loud that was?
