It didnt rain at this show

Another great outdoor arena in beautiful upstate New York that became a ruined by trashy big-mouthed "Deadheads" A nightmare of a place after the Touch of Grey success.

This really was a great show, I try to explain to my kids what it's like to be one of 45,000 or so, when no one has their feet on the ground, what a time ! The steel and concrete walkways into the balcony were actually swaying with the weight of the dancers. wow SAS

My second show, on the day I graduated High School!!

This was the second show I attended and it happened to be on the day I graduated from High School! I remember that it was a warm sunny day to start. My best bud from school and I basically ripped off our graduation gowns and threw them at our parents and drove the 25 minutes north to Saratoga. The rest of the day is kinda of a blur. I remember that my brother told me to meet him on the lawn. He said he'd be waving a Confederate battle flag (yeah, I know, soooo polically incorrect!). When I found him, he stood back and looked at me in a hazy gaze and once he actually focused on me, we shared the HUGEST HUG! Just a really special day in my life!!

Wow, the memories are coming back. It did start off to be a beautiful day. I taped this show so I had to keep some of my head intact. I set up under one of the walkways because of the forcast. It started raining during Minglewood Blues, and never let up. I remember watching water coming off the arena like a water fall as Jerry belted out,"ran into a rain storm" and we all reacted like we just hit the lottery. The China Doll was amazing. Listen to Brents harpsicord sound on it. Afterwards, the parking lot was a riot. We watched one guy hit at least 3 cars trying to get out of his spot. Looked like bumper cars. And in the dark, through woods somewhere, all you could hear was some guy was beating the hell out of a lawn chair.
