OH, Yeah-the birthday shows....

forgot that I had just started a job in San Rafael not too long before the shows in Alaska. Upon which trying to explain WHY I had to leave was a bit histerical......needless to say, the job didn't last long.........& then I created my own.........going to the land of the Midnight Sun was well worth it! Plane full of deadheads......... Gypsy Cowgirl

I thought the boys were smokin' hot. West High Aud. never sounded better. I was looking forward to hearing the Wall of Sound - didn't realize they'd sold it. Probably wouldn't have fit in the building.

I dragged a buddy for his first show. He thought Feel Like A Stranger sounded like disco. I said it's the best fuckin' disco on the planet!

Got back late from the pkg lot for the 2nd set, in the middle of Railroad Blues. I never realized what a great song that was. The Phil Zone was on the main floor near the back. Bass notes knocking the wind outa ya - that's the way - uh huh uh huh - I like it!

Samson and Delilah - "If I had my way - Ba-Ba-Blam!" Dave the Wanderer was waving a silk scarf, leaving tracers.

he was a free man

was there on the balcony in that tight little place, their sound was so encompassing, it was almost too much. I was having hard times then, living and working at a carwash right down the street, remember hiring a real Deadhead for a few days to wash cars, he was free man, just following the Dead, envied him so much for living that way, but I had a cabin to build, needed money. I've met a number of Alaskans who were at these shows, all said the same, that it was the show of the their lives.
