The Next Night

The memories from this show were hazy. I remember that the music was amazing from the beginning all the way back out into the parking area where the crowd was still clapping the NFA beat well into the night.

Both nights would make great releases from an underrated and underrepresented year.

The sound was kind of

The sound was kind of unusual with a wierd echo, especially with Bobby's guitar. Interesting setlist, but I don't agree that 1986 was underrated. Jerry was quite ill at this point and it shows in most of shows leading up to RFK, all of which were very short with generally uninspired jamming. The first night of the Greek might be the exception, with a wonderful Comes a Time.

Parking lot

On the way out of this show there were a group of bikers in the front of the parking lot. They were fuckin up heads as they left. We barely escaped there wrath. Now thats a Dead show

My first of many great shows at Alpine

What a great show! I still listen to the audience tape... love the Half Step opener and the Shakedown... Alpine Valley was just such a GREAT place to camp out and see shows. Great vibes all around!

All for a ham sandwich

I was traveling from Buffalo N.Y. back to California with a friend and we came across a herd of Deadheads in Madison and we heard about the show from them. There was a guy selling tickets out on the road to Alpine Valley and when we asked how much he wanted, he said "I only want some food." So we drove into town and bought him a sandwich and he gave us tickets for both shows. We ended up camping on a golf course next to a couple of beautiful women who had a lot of hash. It rained. Everyone was eating bratwurst and I was a vegetarian. That's all I remember.

14 th show. The crowd was

14 th show. The crowd was either exhausted or totally hung over from the 1st day.Nice songs to hear on Sunday,a great Alpine weekend.To the pack of security guards in the red golf shirts cruising the golf course, hoped you liked the prime rib and mesqite shrimp that we cooked up. Bet you never thought you would eat that @ a dead show.then again, I'm not your average deadhead.

2 days in the Valley

First set was smoking, catch it next time Brown Eyed Women and a cranking Samson for Sunday to close us out. Shortest Eyes ever, I think Wake of the Flood version is longer then this version. Jerry did seem to be having issues in Alpine but seemed great at River bend the next night. Then went to RFK and we knew something was wrong with Jerry. My car was in the shop a month later in August and my Mom picked me up to drive me over to the shop to get it. When I reached over to turn the car radio on she turned it off; I said what is wrong and she told me Jerry was in a Coma.

Rough Night

I totally agree with a couple of comments. I had seen the Dead about ten times before, all in smaller venues in Chicago, and the most recent, outdoors in Tempe/1981. We had backstage passes so I was pretty stoked. We arrived late because we attended the wedding of the guy who gave us the passes. For one reason or another I hadn't seen them in about 4 years. Every show up to that point had been absolutely stellar and magical. I thought that the sound was absolutely awful and the crowd was really surly and appeared to be out of it or totally exhausted or hung over as David mentioned. It was very disappointing. I wasn't angry, more melancholy than anything else. It was at that point that I realized that for me, the magic was over. I didn't attend another show until my last one when Jerry played in '94. I'm glad the Dead garnered a couple more generations of fans after me and I'll always have a special place in my heart for the band that gave me almost 50 years of sublime musical joy. That Alpine show in June of '86 was a rough experience for me but thanks to the Grateful Dead and their fans, God willing, I'll have fifty more years of listening to the most magical and heartwarming music ever made.
