This "Weekend In The Valley" has great memories. A few buddies and myself drove up from Michigan and what a great time this was. Way too many stories to sum up in a few paragraphs but lets just say it was a real adventure. On sight overnight camping and before the gigantic crowds.
The tapes from this show that I heard years later reminded me of how every song from these 2 shows were executed with perfection. Short but sweet.
Walking the golf path after was a trip as everyone was making animal sounds as if I were in a herd of Dead Heads. lol I think I did a Peace Pig! lol Garcia later!
Second set was very short, with only two songs pre-drums. However, the Playin' jam was outstanding with Phil leading the way. The post-Space China Doll was a treat, however I could have sworn there was at least a Playin' tease after that somewhere (but memory may not serve so well...)
I don't know but for me this is when I really started having fun at shows.I did'nt miss another alpine show until they stopped playing there.I always had great fun ,good times.I lived in evanston ,il. then.worked at Oak st market,natural foods store.Maybe somebody will see this and remember.Several students from NW that worked for us were heads.Good times for all .Peace,Hugh
13th show... Lucky 13.Kathty and I were married now, and alpine 86, one of my favorites. WE got there early Sat am, met these two folks on the golf couse where we were camping. They had just come from the greek and minnesota and they turned us on to some wonderful things. Thanks . I loved this show . It was so crowd ready. . The scene dictated what they were ready for. Row Jimmy was so trippy. And we were ready for Playin' to open the second set. Awesome Drumz> Space> China Doll. Similar to the greek, 84. After the show we cooked out dinner at our campsight and listed to old Dark Stars and rode out our trip. One of the best memories of my first wife. She had a great time.Crashed out and waited for tomorrow night.
