Fun show...pay per view "Summer Solctice"...nice weather...
My only time (except for JGB and OtherOnes), but considering how far away from home it was, I still remember every minute. A girl in a tye dye bikini selling burritos, beers and some ethnic food items known locally as 'doses'. Everyone in a really happy, friendly mood and I know I'll never see that at a show again, ever.
The music represents some of my favourite Dead to this date--perhaps light on the obscurities I'm supposed to like at this stage, but the first half hour of the second set? How can you go wrong?
He had fifteen years in the Jesuit school
and now he can't get a steady job
I was'nt at this show in person but remember watching the Pay-Per-View and FM broadcast. This would be a very worth while official release. A 2 disc DVD that contains every minute broadcast plus an audio CD version would be fantastic in all it's uncut glory.
We were so baked by the time Jer started noodling that we had no idea what he was playing. It wasnt until we got home that someone told us about that dittie.... Lance and I drove up from LA in a car with a bad alignment - couldnt drive over 55 without the car shuttering...Lots of fun - glad they took a day off inbetween this run...Camped out in the park behind shoreline (back when you could do that, or could you?) lol...
If they ever release this on DVD, I sure hope they deleate the commentary. "Ramblin Eyes" and "New Mankind Blues"? I don't think so.
A friend of a friend ( who happened to work on the GD lights crew ) took us to Jerry's house in Marin. He wasn't there when we arrived but Annabelle was. We hung with her and "talked" for a while. This was the day BEFORE my first show mind you-so I was not exactly in the know as to how amazing a situation I was in. I remember walking up the steps to get to her room and seeing gold records on the wall, as I neared the top step there was Touch of Grey just leaning against the wall, not yet added to the collection-like Jerry would get to it someday. She gave me a great hug when we left.
Needless to say the next day I had the best time of my life and l cherish 6.21.89 dearly.
I watched this on TV too. If I recall, Branford Marsallis (sp) Played sax for much of the 2nd set. Show didn't end until 2AM Michigan time. Had to be at work by six. So what! Cool show.
Actually, it was Clarence Clemons from the E Street Band on the sax.
I didn't attend but do remember a friend saying he would tape the PPV for me and he goofed it up or spaced it. Finally getting to watch this show tonight! Pretty good set list, almost a best of 89 tour list, but the band was very good this night. A pretty mellow but melodic show.
