does anyone else remember the thunder & lightening?and the power went out and when it came back phil booming right in where they left off?or was i trippin?
If that's strictly an either/or proposition, then u wuz trippin'.
Never rained in Louavull on that hot day or evening. Remember it all vividly, including the sun shining into our eyes and, later, watching it set behind the stage. No hassles whatsoever with power, either --at least from an audience standpoint.
Top highlight for me was "Standing on the Moon">"He's Gone." I played with both of 'em like they were elastic clay in my hands (and I know that my saying so won't sound too weird around here, anyway).
Oh, and they broke out the enormo dancing skeleton marionette during "Truckin'" outta "Space."
my 5th birthday show!!!! lots of cops;(
Barry, from Colorado, my family and I drove over to Louisville from KC after the Sandstone show. My wife was in charge of 3 dogs on leashes with our 3 kids at the Doubletree downtown, within walking distance of Cardinal Stadium. We shared an elevator ride with John Molo, not recognizing him as Hornsby's drummer, until later that night when we were staying-up making cassette copies of the show.
We drove up to Chagrin Falls the next day for our high school reunion...what a long strange trip. We, too, are Miami University grads!! My previous trip to Louisville was for the legendary 6/18/74 show at Freedom Hall, while at MU.
Hey eina mama - you are recalling the Raleigh show 4 days later when the power went out during a lighting storm. However, you may be right that you were still on the same trip when that occurred. I think I was! :-)
oz loves ya!!
see ya this tour!!!
Seriously, to everyone who came and joined us in a bit of disco that evening and tour, hoorah. We ended up disco-ing our way through that tour, and I remember hearing someone talking about it at Reggae-on-the-river, while I was in my tent, saying what a blast it was. i concur, we had a time. Miss you guys!
And we went swimmin' in the river after the show and named our new kitten Baby Blue. What great times!
I remember that van.
Ok - so for this show we were in the backed-up traffic outside the parking area - waiting in line to "file in." Within minutes, a deadhead came strolling by the car singing out, "Thirty dollars and 15 hits for tickets! Thirty dollars and 15 hits for tickets!" Considering we had ended up with TWO EXTRA tickets and this guy wasn't specifying HOW MANY tickets, I said, "Climb on in here brother!" We did business and by the time we parked the car, I was already REALLLLLY feeling the 1 hit I had taken when the dude laid them in my hand. I jumped in the water fountain that had a sign that read, "Do not play in water...," took another hit and strolled in the gates. Before the night ended, I took 3 1/2 hits and was wayyyyyy out there! FANTASTIC SHOW!
I STILL dream of that skeleton!!!! My 14 year old daughter asks me about it from time to time. Hornsby was okay. The Dead were in-freaking-credible. I think I have part of the show on a DVD somewhere. My sister that turned me on to the boys was going to Miami at the time (not of the show, but the time she gave me Working Man's Dead for a Christmas present). Love the skeleton. Downside: something happened at the show that has haunted me ever since. I was standing in line a concession stand and the guy in front of me passed out. I froze and didn't help him out. The people behind me pushed forward and took care of him. I hope he was okay.
