OMG My first outdoor show WOW WHAT A LONG STRANGE TRIP THAT HAD BEEN !
One thing I clearly recall was Phil absolutely destroying the PA, dropping huge ass bombs during Morning Dew. He shredded the woofers of the PA, they were totally bottoming out bad. I also recall Birdsong as being nice, and The music never stopped. First time hearing Tom Thumbs Blues I believe.
Jerry sounds terrible voice-wise on this show. Bobby doesn't sound the best either, vocally. Just wonderin' if this is what passes for a "great show" (other comments) in this period, or if Jerry and Bobby were both under the weather, or what? Personal opinion - the Dead were at their best from 1978-1981, roughly. Thoughts?
For myself I loved these shows, it was the first time I was out on Tour and being on the great adventure. They didn't sound the best but I had a lot of fun back then
I lived about 6 miles from Hershey at the time. There were 6 of us that went to Saratoga in my 1974 Chrysler New Yorker. Nice boat for long distance traveling. We got home around 5:00AM. A little rest and then over to the park in the early afternoon. It was first date night with my wife and her first show. We went on to tour up and down the East Coast until the end of the '91 summer tour.
About that Morning Dew. The rain slacking off was mentioned but does anyone remember the nearly full moon peeking through the clouds right over the stage? Magical!
