The second set, with Let it Grow and St. Stephen coming and going in the medley, was incredible and has always stood out in my memory as being some of the finest moments in my Dead life!
Remember? The lottery, mail order was how tickets were sold.
My tickets came, and I had seats in row"CCC". I was bummed, I figured we were two alphabet sequences (A-Z) in the way-back section.
A few days before the show I was telling a friend about the lousy seats, and he said that the triple letter rows were in the old orchestra pit, when the Tower had live bands playing for shows. I went nuts, but was still skeptical.
So, fast forward to the show, and giving the usher the tickets. My friend & I were led all the way down to the front into a small sectioned off area not 8 feet from the stage. It was incredible.
Great seats, a great show, it is as fresh as last month. Fun, fun, fun.
I have heard a fair quality tape of the 1st set, the quality goes in and out,but it shines at times,love High time, and looks like Rain

This was my first show - wow 35 years ago! The show actually started with a pretty long rendering of Bob Weir's nonsensical story of the Little Yellow Dog.
