"Weekend In The Valley 87" The Next Night

After an amazing first show, we had an afternoon to check out the festivities and what an adventure that was. My first real vending scene experience and finally understood the magic of being there.

For this show my friends and I spent much of the show wandering the hill and around the time of Minglewood Blues I lost my friends in the crowd. A short time later I ran into some other friends of mine who gave me a (####) and my adventures became quite interesting. I ended up hanging out with them the rest of the show. Once again, every note played was spot on perfect and the fairly decent AUD tapes I aquired from this night proved that. Oh yeah, just remembered the between set music was "Joes Garage" by Frank Zappa.

If David Lemieux reads this, please release these shows, even if the vault tapes are'nt perfect. Or if a fan out there has a nice crispy uncirculated AUD or SBD, please send me a message.

My first show

I just went for something to do. I only had a ticket, 5 dollars and half a bag of cheese popcorn. It is just a concert right? Over in a couple hours then go home. I never went home. Cheese popcorn became my new best friend. And "no, sir, I cannot move the fire" lol. Great show that day/night (miss the 4pm starts by the way) and me and my buddy stayed overnight. It started as just a concert and mushroomed into a life changing event.

Phil hit an open string and I almost fell over and I was hooked. The people were so nice and beautiful.

They did a playin' reprise

They did a playin' reprise somewhere in the second set. We stopped The Camper Van at a sign that read: Bong Recreation Area got out and took a group photo all holding our bongs.

My first sober show

A group of college buddies & Deadhead pals went to this show. We camped out in Indiana - being newly sober I was also the designated driver. The only disappointment was when the folks at the gate wouldn't let me bring i my thermos of orange juice and club soda. I was pretty afraid of not having my "safe" drink with me...but oh well, I went with the flow. I heard it was also Garcia's first sober tour. When they lit into "Dark Muddy River," I moved up to the 8th row - every muscle in Jerry's neck was strained. I had never heard him sing and play as clear and as clean and as emotional as this day. After seeing/hearing this I've looked at "Dark Muddy River" as a sobriety song - it has inspired me for damn near 27 years...and yeah, I'm still sober.
