Favor for a Friend

So, I had a Halloween party and I started playing Winterland (2-24-74) I Know You Rider. One of the guy's there got really excited and wanted to know if I could get him a copy of the 6-28-88 Saratoga Performing Arts Center show. I can't find it...either to buy or to download...anyone have any ideas where I can get a copy?

the gatecrashers were manic, the lawn sound was light and weak and the view was non existent, plus it rained. It was also the first time I was ever "Victim of the Song".

A great venue though, seen awesome Phish, Phil and Friends, Steely Dan and Bob Dylan shows there.

My only free show

We drove up from UMass, three of us, without tickets. I had never been shut out of a show, I always found the right spot to buy a ticket from someone with an extra. This show was impossible to find extra tickets. About halfway through the first set, we were walking around outside the fence when we noticed a break in the fence and it wasn't secure. The three of us slipped right through, unnoticed by security. I felt slightly guilty, but we definitely weren't part of the stampede that went over the fence in riot fashion. I also remember thinking this wasn't the best show I saw. Maybe the band was getting negative energy from the extremely rowdy crowd, maybe the officials at SPAC told the band what was going on and this was the last time they'd ever play there.
