You always hear of stories of "THE show". Well, this was THE show for me. Although I had been to several shows through the years and had already "gotten it", this was the most magical of shows. It started with running into an old friend I had not partied with in years at the bar of our hotel. The show was fantastic. The Shenandoah that Jerry played, to the train that I thought was coming through the stadium, to Casey Jones to Steve Miller playing with the boys post-space was fantastic. Vince busting out in encore is to this day my favorite memory of him.
Nice review pockyway.
Lots of people love this show but it didn't really do it for me...but that train announcing Casey Jones (only time I saw that song) was a moment to remember.
I recall Picasso Moon being pretty cool too.
Great show!!! We had a horrible time getting into the parking lot. It took us hours (like normal), but we missed the turn last minute and ended up in Annacostia. We ended up grilling and picnicking in this park where we found bullet casings on the ground and there was broken glass everywhere.
After eating we found a parking place near a decent metro stop to ride the train in. As we were getting ready to go down some stairs to get to the train, this couple needed to make a phone call or something and left their child with us to look after. We didn't know this couple from Adam. We started to get worried after about 20 minutes. We sent some of our party ahead. We started searching for a cop to give the child to, but the parents finally showed up after about 45 minutes.
We had a great time on the train. We ended up missing Steve Miller, but the show was fantastic! I loved it when Jerry played Shenandoah, and I couldn't believe how high Jerry jumped when Mickey got behind him and blared his train horn!
The train horn gives me goose bumps now just thinking about it. This was my first RFK show and I remember looking around during space and being amazed at all the people. I love Bruce w/ them anytime.
This show was my one and only. I remeber going in and guys climbing up the chain link sides of RFK like an army of locust. Dosed. Miller opening and nothin else till that Train Horn seared my skull in half and I came back. It was amazing night that changed my life and the acid wasn't half bad either.
As alot of you know, the rumors of Casey Jones coming somewhere on the tour had been circulating for weeks. I can't remember now, where and when, but they had been sounding the horn at other shows, because there was alot of talk about the time "ban" on Casey Jones being over and Jerry driving that train back to DC and blaring it in the governments face. Well, I was pregnant with my daughter (so this was her first show)and we were waiting for Casey ......it was exciting to hear that train whistle blow!!!!!!!
I have NO recollection of the Train Whistle! I have the bootleg and I was surprised to hear a whistle. I seriously don't remember it, how weird is that. I may have been in shock by all of the people taking their clothes off to dance. I have been to some great shows but never been so moved out of my clothes.
I remember losing all my friends in the parking lot as I tried to negotiate entry through the crew gate. When I finally got inside I couldn't find anyone so I just hung out. When I saw a guy next to me popping a tab, I asked if I could buy one. He said no, then gave me one. Uckin Fay!!!!! All of the sudden during space the horns blew and my whole body shivered from the sounds. I thought I would never get to hear Casey the way the older heads talked, but I lucked out!! Being from DC doesn't hurt.
First set was totally weak. I was on the floor and nobody was really grooving. It wasn't until Picasso that things got moving, but by then the set was almost over. My friends and I decided to guy way up high in the stadium so that we could rip bong hits. How my friend smuggled it in is still a mystery to this day. So we pulled tubes for the whole second set, got a little excited when they ripped into Casey Jones, but they soon deflated that excitement with Throwin'> Saturday Night. What's with the Baba O'Riley nonsense? That one never really clicked for me. Where was the Grateful Dead that I had known and loved through the late 80's?
We were hanging out by the truck entrance at RFK when we heard the soundcheck - CASEY!!! YEAAHH!! We ran for the fence.
Dennis McNally came out and said, "Didn't I tell you guys NOT to show up early and hang out in the lot? JEEEEZus! You people NEVER LISTEN."
(and then a big grin...)
