Attendees of this show
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 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.
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
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!
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 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.
