The Ohio River behind the stage was cool with the old paddle wheel showboats. Hot day. That changed at halftime. Clouds rolled in, dark, dark clouds. Lightning, then more lightning. Begin second set, begin rain, very hard rain. Rain finished by about Smokestack and the drying out began at about dark. This show told me that it's usually a good show when your someplace you've never been before. First Cryptical. I really liked this place.

Family, fun and Friends

I just moved to Florida a few months before this show, My mom moved with a few of my brothers and sisters to Cinti. My older brother still lived in NJ.
My uncle in Cinti brought a handful of tickets for the family members. it was my youngest sister 1st show, her 2nd (and last) was the year after, at the same place.Loser- let it grow blew me away. Jerry was in a red T- shirt. They had that cool back drop with the skeleton and guitar There was really tight bond between the croud and the band......and you can feel it.
Very relaxed.......Very tight show!! Cyptical was unfuckinbeleivable!!!! A crisp, clear Jerry during Comes a time.......
US Bluse was slow and they just were not into it? Should have picked a different encore.
One of my top 5 shows of all time. I still break out the tape and listen to it now and then. Put the headphones on.....fire one up.........close my eyes and go back in time 22 years!!
If ANYONE has a good sounding CD of this show....PLEASE. PLEASE contact me............And if you don't have this show....GET IT!!!
After the show we kept making a wrong turn and went over that bridge about 50 times. Made it back to my mom's about 4 in the morning. She lived 10 minutes away!!........LOL

........I know I was there..........

Had some special, " Vietnamese Orange Blossum Weed "* that I whipped out for this concert for me, the misses, her sister and husband. We got so smashed that it was hard to get out of the car. We finally found our seats, and I remember the rain starting.
I remember, there's be a lighting flash and the dead would play just as the thunder would start. The playing would die down, another flash, and the Dead would play along with the thunder......I was waiting for "The Orange Blossum Special"
but they didn't play it...

*Yeah, it was really called that

My first show

Remember the lightning well and thunder well. This was my first show and one of the most mind blowing with the weather and all. Great time.

my first show

I was attending school ak NKU.
My RA, Chris; asked if I wanted to got to the Grateful Dead
show that evening. I had to ask who that was!
I had never experienced anything so special.
My eyes opened to this beauty and joy.
The people, the weather, and the experience
was spectacular.
The music never stopped.
I have met so many wonderful people.
The next ten tears were truly magnificent.

12th show of the life tour.I

12th show of the life tour.I went to the 2nd alpine show ond then drove through Indy,stopped at the houseand picked up john , kathy and stagger lee. .I love they addapt to weather! Huge barge traveling downstream on the ohio river during wharf rat,but for me the whole set was perfect. Compared to what I had seen @ alpine2 nights earlier, was this even trhe same band? Monday in cincy wtops in 85. The Smoestack the best i ever or woodever hear. Phenominal Drumz > Space. comes a Time also the best. Brent and jerry were great. THis is one of my top shows,if you had been there, you.d know it
p.s- to the guy near the sound board ,with the glasses and other things, John and I just wanted to thank you so much for the good time. We"ll always remember you.

In the top 5 of all time

My second show, but I was with some vetrans who said it ranked WAY up there. Weather Report-the rain, the wind, I thought it was special effects-Officer Winholtz, you forgot your keys-we have the photos to prove it!
