Saw this show from right up front but was suffering from kidney stones. Great show and the perks helped. I had great seats for the next night but found myself in the hospital. I left the tickets in my glove compartment for Matt.
Have to disagree with this being a "great show." the band was not in synch at all, lots of flubs, horrible sound, gate-crashers (Phil made an announcement asking people to cool it, IIRC, and bad vibes all around. The Wharf Rat was trecherous, with Garcia not even remembering how to play it for the first minute or two.
I handed my ticket away for the next night upon exiting the show that night. I was totally bummed at what state the band was in at this point. It was my last show.
I agree with you, Bozo Bus. A very rough show for the band. JG almost forgot how to start Wharf Rat. This was my last show too. I had seats up front on the "floor".
i remember feeling pretty good after the first set, they really stretched the songs out more than a usual first. but the second set was a real bummer
Last Show for me. Shoulda been at Soldier Field, but opted to be in N 'Orleans on business. If I only knew. Saw Dylan and the Dead a couple of times b4 and never really cared for them together. But, they were pretty good this night. Always loved Spanish Jam and, though my cousin, who was at this, and So Many Shows, with me, hated it, Stagger Lee. Being a bit older and a fan of the '50's, I knew the hit version (Ray Price?) of this tune and appreciated the Americana in its Hunter's talesmanship. Loved Dead Covers, so Lucy was nice 4 me.
this was the last show i ever saw. it was not very good. i felt that something was wrong with jerry, i did not think he played very good that night. wish i could have seen a better show.
jerry didn't know what arena he was playing in let alone what song it was
two minutes? the entire song was totally screwed up -- worst in history for me
it was horrible to watch garcia jam badly off key to wharf rat when he needed to join wharf rats as his heroin addiction was full tilt
The Dead Rise Again
Jerry had death threats before these shows. He said "It was the first time I was nerves about going on stage." killer Stagger Lee. It was like he didnt want the song to end. Weirdest Warf rat ever.
This was my first and only Grateful dead show. For those of you lucky enough to see the "prime" Jerry years, you're lucky.
This show had me hooked and Garcia was a mess!!
There have been many OtherOnes, Phil and Phriends, Ratdog, and Phish shows over the years, but there is NOTHING like a Grateful Dead concert.
