I showed up late night in Chicago for the following day's show, and this show had fried the brains of everyone I asked about it that night. I asked what they played and all I could get out of 'em was "I think they played Aiko!"James Cotton sat in during the second set and must have erased everyone's minds with his harmonica. ". . . Music is the best!" (fz)

The first set just didn't seem to flow. But when the boys came out for the 2nd, they were on fire. Steve Miller and James Cotton sat in on Iko, Schoolgirl, and later on for Lovelight and Gloria. BTW, the Lovelight / E: Gloria were the best closers I've heard live to date. Absolutely smokin'

Still feeling tired after PA. I got off the plane and got a ride to Jerry's art show in downtown. I got a glass a champaign and got back on my feet again. I had 20 something row seats for the show and got there early. Not many people were there for SMB so I went up front and got some great pics (which I cant find damn it!) Once he did his thing and the place filled up we started to remove the seats (yes that was me with the lighter burning all the zip-tyes and folding the chairs in a stack so we could all dance in section A lol...) Nice 1st set but it was the 2nd set that was excellent. James Cotton and Stevie "Guitar" Miller.... After PA, hearing So Many Roads brought tears to my eyes. Thanks Chicago!

This was the last time I saw them. It got to be too much with the number of people and I had to play hookie from work and life events made it impossible to keep going. I had already lived the best moments possible so I layed it to rest.

15 years old, starry eyed, felt like I had landed on my home planet, touched by the music and the energy ever since, still trucking to shows, hope the boys are gonna rock n roll together real soon.

Terrific hometown gig, great guest drop-in from James Cotton on the harp. Nice shots from the Pranksters' movie on the vid screens during "Brown-Eyed Women," and the "Drums" with the freight train thing coming out of the speakers and on the vid was mad fun, completely out of nowhere and in the finest Prankster tradition. My only "Gloria," too --just a fabulous show. Ranks as one of my personal favorites, and I can't praise it too highly. :D :D :D

I attended very few shows due to life events, but this was one of them. I am fairly lost with flac files and music downloads, but was hoping to find some MP3s to select shows so that I can chuck the cassettes. Specifically, I'm looking for the following and would be happy to negotiate reimbursement for cds by Paypal or better yet MP3: 1. Deer Creek Ampitheater, Noblesville, IN- July 15, 1989 2. Sandstone Ampitheater, Bonner Springs, KS July 4, 1990 3. Sandstone Ampitheater, Bonner Springs, KS June 24th and 25th, 1991 4. Soldier Field, Chicago June 25th, 26th, 1992 5. Deer Creak Ampitheater June 28th, 29th 1992. 6.Red Rocks, Morrison CO 9/7/85 7.Fillmore East, NY 4/28/71 8.Dillon Gym, Princeton, NJ 4/17/71 9. Jerry's show January 24, 1986 - Constitution Hall after he allegedly got out of jail 10. Hampton Colliseum, Hampton VA 10/9/89 Please write in here if you can help me out. I really don't have much to share, but would love to switch these out for cds or better yet MP3s. I hope this post doesn't offend anyone, but I didn't know where else to turn. Please forgive me! -David

Headed to Chicago for the weekend, as I had business there on Monday. James Cotten was excellent - G L O R I A - was a treat. Great to head down the entrance to the field like the Monsters of the Midway. A few months later I ran into some one with some tapes and he sent me one of this show for the price of the cassettes. He also encouraged me to listen to this new band I had heard about, but never heard. That band: Phish.

What I remeber the most about this... Besides the Psychedelic Train in drums and James Cotton, was during the 2nd set. It was a very clear night in Chicago and then 1 cloud appeared above us. I was in a Life Drawing class at the time so I was used to seeing naked models quite a bit. This cloud that formed was a perfect head, shoulder, breast and torso of a woman kinda laying on her side. With almost perfect timing, Bob broke into "This must be Heaven, Tonight I cross the line, You must be the Angel I thought I might never find" Maybe it was the blotto, and maybe I wasn't the only one who saw it.

What an amazing show! I was way up in the bowl, the sound was swirling, everything was new - nice people all around. I remember one girl turned to me at the set break I believe and asked me why I was not smiling. I was young and posturing like I was cool.I had no idea what I was seeing - in particular the Good Morning Little Schoolgirl - was so special. The masterpiece was awesome - the train during space was mad! I, too, would like to see a Dick's Picks or other high quality version of this come out. I have a tape, but would like to re-live this w/o the hiss. I only say the Dead 12 or 13 times, and every time was special. Cheers.

I'm pretty sure this is the show when some guy about twenty rows behind us stood up near the end of a very loooong space and sort of yelped in a desperate voice: "PLAY A SONG!" Really funny, he sounded serious. We laughed hard. The Schoolgirl was memorable.

My first dead show was one that I will never forget!!! I was 5 rows of the stage left center. I had never experienced anything so surreal up until that point in my life. I was hooked and never missed a show in Chicago there after. One of the most memorable experiences in my life and one I will share with my kids. Thanks Jerry, Bob, Phil, Vince, Bill, and Mickey for a lifetime full of memories. Sometimes the road less traveled is the best road of all.

I remember that damn train whistle--I was thinking "what the fuck is happening" a friend of mine had floor seats that night and apparently fell out of her chair--High Kate, if you are reading this.

Just got out of high school , and drove to Soldier's in a VW microbus painted Rasta colors. Made a lot of memories.Had "floor"(field)seats and a guy in front of us spent the whole first set looking back at our row to scope some girls. He looked just like Willie AAmes from Eight is Enough and Charles in Charge!

I remember Steve asking the audience "how many of you are here from the Vegas show?" and the small crowd at the time roared and he just laughed almost like he was in disbelief. I'll never forget seeing the parking lot crowd for the first time and actually feeling remorse that i hadn't known about this community until now ('92). Got on the train late but have never been so grateful for all of the years of beautiful music.

Great second set. It was the first time I was exposed to James Cotton. After tour I was able to purchase some of his music. Matt "Guitar" Murphy played in his band. This is stuff I'd never would have heard or known if it weren't for the Grateful Dead. Thank you Grateful Dead for the introduction. And thank you Chicago for the great times. You could work the lot all day, see the show, go to a blues club after, catch last call at 4:30, go eat breakfast, then jump in Lake Michigan, and then go do it all again!!!

I found my home this day, all the different generations under one tye-dye was the most beautiful event I've ever witnessed.

Fresh out of highschool, and my 4th day of work at my first full time job. I also had to work at 7am the next day, too. A guy I previously worked with had two tickets for "obstructed view" and offered me one if I would drive. What the hell. Left Milwaukee for Chicago at rush hour. Never drove into Chicago before. That was a trip. Had to park South of the stadium in an indoor parking garage. So much for the grill I brought. I just remember the parking lot. Never seen anything like that before. We dropped, and started to explore. I remember a few songs, and then the drive home. Then, working the next day. What an experience. A few years later, and Jerry was dead. I made it to a show at Summerfest, many years later, but did not enjoy the sound.
