I was on a roll here: Cincinnati, this one, then Saratoga. No big deal except I needed to be back at work in FL way before I could get there. I went here alone and heard someone jokingly hawking Grateful Dead turkey basters in the parking lot. Now it's pretty much come to fruition. Picked up a rider on the way to the next show and he was the son of some bigshot physicist. The show itself is a blur. Lots of nitrous in the parking lot and some fake opium that only created 15 seconds of lightheaded wishing for a buzz. I got by on beer.
I worked at Blossom in 85 and 86. This was the first time I saw the dead. I would begin to get into them heavily in 86 and 87 as many of my friends at Kent State were on the bus. I had never seen so many people on cid at one place or at one time. Great day, and we broke the sales record (weird huh?) for beer at my station. Never worked another dead show......always in the crowd from then on.
The vibe was so intense at this show, it blew me away w/o drugs at all. I think maybe we drank a little...I was with a pretty straight crew. I remember having so much fun as I joined a daisy chain of dancing Deadheads. I think I was the only one not tripping or something...I think we danced away the whole second set...
I remember that them opening with Day Tripper just blew me away...and I'll always remember that Dire Wolf, and Touch of Grey at the close.
After the show, my friends were hauling a heavy cooler, still loaded with goodies. Some nice young tripping hippy asked if we still had food, and offered to buy a sandwich. We spent the next hour slapping sandwiches together & taking anything, cash, trade, whatever. We scored t-shirts, a wad of cash, cds, even (to my delight) some kind. It was an amazing night...
I've been a DeadHead ever since. Not hardcore, or anything. But my 21 y/o son rocked in his baby swing to "American Beauty" and "Cumberland...". And I traveled to a show or 2...
these summer spaces this year were OUTSTANDING,Anyone new must of thought OMG WHAT IS THIS.I took to much of something..
