Top Notch shows from Ventura.
Before The Beachside venue was desicrated by cement & rules... Not EXACTLY certain this was my 1st. Dead show, but I do know this was the 1st. PLACE I actually saw them perform in person. I also recall hearing someone other than the author do a Dylan song live, could have been "Masterpiece", not sure. All was vibrant. All were happy. Musical aboundedness surrounded us. THAT much, I am sure of...
I'll never forget everybody getting down to Shakedown street.
There was a way-cool backdrop with the Steal Your Face with a sailboat
all the ventura fairground shows were good The best camp out shows ever ,park it at the coast with the most A-1
bless dangerous doug and danno
All three shows were red hot..........A real funky shakedown.You can feel the good vib from the west coast heads................alot different from east coast shows.........I got some pic's that I will scan and post soon.
When they returned to the stage and were kind of tinkering with their instruments and amps, the entire crowd was giggling... a high time was had by all... most excellent...
Beach, sand, sun, with Jerry back and lookin' good. All was right with the universe.
1987 to me was a fun year and also the year of The Dew. we got 17 Morning Dew's. My favorite being the march 2nd Dew because Jerry sounds as if almost in tears the way he sings it,always loved the emotional Dew's
One that note this was last year the boys played the beach at Ventura.I am so lucky to have caught every year. I remember back in late spring of 1982 when the dead hot line announced the Grateful dead will play two shows at the Ventura county fairgrounds in Ventura California.
EXCITING time back then when we could call the hot line and get the future dates for upcoming shows and tours. Loved those days of my life .
One of my favorite shows from my local stomping grounds. The first set is relaxed and very well-grounded. You could tell the entire band was having fun. Masterpiece was truly a masterpiece, Bobby W.'s vocals doing it justice. Let It Grow was glorious!
But the second set was the centerpiece. Opening up with Shakedown Street was the perfect choice for all of the visiting Dead heads that had been tripping around downtown Ventura for the previous 2 nights and for the local Heads that had been hanging out with their Out Of Town Comrades, it was good vibes all around! Estimated>Eyes>Drums>Other One>Morning Dew>Sugar Mag. OMG! Need I say more?
At the beginning of Shakedown Dan Healy gave the green light to the tapers and a daisy chain of tape machines formed up behind the mixing board, there were quite a few 2nd set board tapes of this show in circulation later on.
