I jumped down to the general admission floor with dozens of other heads during Shakedown and was promptly removed from the stadium by this jerk security guard :(
Jersey was about the worst place you could see a Dead show. Watching the security guards pounce on all the poor tripped out freaks when they jumped to the field during Shakedown was a riot. Like something out of Gladiator. Shakedown and Jack Straw was a great way to start things.
I was asking this big biker dude. . . whats this song and I thought he said "spider glass" it made perfect sense till I found out it was called Built to last
This was the last time they had an open tarp (no seats) on the floor. . .I got so close Phil was able to Bomb me I loved it
I finally got to see my 1st Jack Straw, surprisingly after Shakedown
I remember being jammed right up front at the start of the first set. Two guys next to me started screaming for Jack Straw after Shakedown. My buddies and I joined in and much to our surprise they played it! This was a weird time- great shows all year, but the WORST scenes you could imagine. Counterfeits all over the shop, police and security cracking skulls left, right and center. Still, I'd give everything up to go back to those days now. Good times.
i too jumped onto the floor at set break and promptly got my ass kicked out
Great show...as usual, but really crappy seats. I was sitting one row behind Bob Euker. If I remember correctly, I got rained on. Sugar Plum
awesome way to spend your birthday
The Shakedown rocked - solid. Jack Straw was also sweet. The BEW was killer but Jerry fucked up the makin' whiskey verses. So be it. I also liked the Queen Jane and it still sounds great on my barely listenable AUD casette. I remember this as a hot but amazingly nice day. And Giants was not all that bad. Being from northern NJ it was close and everyone knew security was Nazi-like so we just steered clear. Parking lot was a blast that day!
