So Many Roads is not the one on the So Many Roads box

Just listening to the two, and they're definitely not the same; the one from this show is much longer. Does anyone know the correct date of the one on the box?

So Many Roads

Track notes by Blair Jackson read...."Deadheads already familiar with this version will notice that the one here has been edited somewhat. A better-recorded guitar intro from a few days before has been pasted onto the beginning, and Garcia's 1st attempt at the final verse (which he sang twice), and a 2nd solo have been eliminated."

Remembering Portland Meadows

I walked onto the horse track excited to be seeing the King of Rock and Roll, Chuck Berry, for the first time live. He is a true performer and put on an excellent, short but sweet, performance. There were many people at this show that seemed relatively new to the Dead scene as there were throughout the years. I was fortunate enough to see 7 shows from 1988 through to this second to last one in Oregon. I remember listening to a girl having a heavy trip up near the stage before the show and saying "Oh my God I'm dying!" over and over as her friend consoled her. Must have been the death of her ego.
During the second set opener, Samson and Delilah, I can remember an almost riotous feeling in the air. Then I noticed an older long haired Deadhead, 20 feet ahead of me with his shirt off, burning a dollar bill as the audience around us went crazy for the music. As I gazed up on stage I noticed Jerry to be looking like a very old man beyond his years. It made me sadened to think that I might be witnessing the end of the greatest musical adventure of my generation! Then, as I noticed Jerry struggling a little bit, I got frustrated with the quality of the music and the scene at that time. After contemplating my decision to stay or go during the middle of the second set, I left Portland Meadows reluctantly, feeling like Jerry was going to die soon.
Later, I heard on the news that someone who had attended this one wandered off, after the show, onto the I-5 freeway and was struck and killed by a passing motorist.
Right now I am listening to the second set of the last Grateful Dead show, ever, which has brought a tear to my eye this fine evening. Phil singing "Unbroken Chain" is always a joy! I loved the way he sang "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" in the Gorge this year! And, of course, Jerry singing "So Many Roads" and "Black Muddy River"! Such tear jerkers!
How bitter SWEET It Is!

MUCH LOVE TO YOU!

I never got in to the show.

I never got in to the show. My first and Jerry's last. We gave our tickets away the night before and stayed in the parking lot. I remember getting really really thirsty and then the rain came through. It was still magical being so close to the prize but never getting into to see it..

Jerry

Sorry, but Jerry was Jerry, what could anyone do???? Everyone def stepped it up this night and it is what it is.... sad, depressing, the end and but Bobby and Phil filled in and took over which makes it awkward, and impressive. We will always miss Jerry, but he did his thing. But he definitely rocked Black Muddy out........ and who would of known? I'm still proud to own the tape I'm listening now....... Sorry to rant at this hour, but....I miss it

Missing Jerry Ballad Mystery

Aside from any number of critiques that can be directed at this ill-starred performance it was the lack of a Jerry Ballad that was most troubling. I believe it was Phil Lesh's book where I read that they were going to break into China Doll when Bobby cut in and fired up Sugar Mags.

Is this the only 2 set show in modern GD history with no Jerry Ballad??

Don't like to think about the sublime sickness and melancholy that the potential aborted China Doll would have possessed. I like to think that like Visions and Black Muddy River Jerry woulda nailed it!

I remember a few of us that had attended many shows over the years were together again for the opening chorus. As Touch of Grey started, we just looked at each other and nodded as it was true for all! Who knew at the time that the final strains of Box of Rain would be so appropriate for that moment. But that's what they were all about - giving us great music for the moment, fortunately allowing us to capture on tape/film/digital, whatever. What a long strange trip it's been...

Missing Jerry Ballad in second set???

Jerry sang a very intense So Many Roads and his final song was the first encore Black Muddy River...That is two "Jerry Ballads" in the second set by my count!

Thank you, and Stay In Touch!
