Shakedown Shakedown Shakedown!!!

The first of two great shows. The first set was smoking all the way through, I love Brent's Saxaphone keyboard solo during CC Rider and Bobby's feedback during Brow Eyed Women - perfectly placed, the boys were on. The 2nd set was amazing and Shakedown Street ranks as one the best. IMO, the Merriwether 85, Spectrum 85 and Long Beach 81 are my favorites, all different in different ways but all good.

If you can get a copy of the show, its a must.

First Show

my friend Bob came home from college and told me all about this band called The Grateful Dead - and how i needed to get to a show. Went out and purchased Skeletons from the Closet.....soon after got tickets for Hersey Park (previous show) and the 2-Merriweather shows. Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend the Hersey Park shows and passed the tickets on to others....Had to work the day of June 30th Merriweather show - got to Columbia Maryland late, I was excited anxious, worried about being late....while walking though the parking lot had my first deadhead encounter. I was greeted with a friendly "Brother glad you made the show, have a great time" with a hug, and a "stir fry" sticker put onto my shirt.

I thought "what the heck was that all about". Couple minutes later, I am in the show.....and I was on the bus! Been on the bus ever since -

Cant wait to see you all in Chicago!

Jerry was really in a cool groove here and the Stella was so nice.

Thirty Years Ago Today

Second set started with another 'barbed wire whipping cream party '85' - that was cool. Shakedown was fab. Great show with lots of friends gathered.

Had seats inside pavilion near soundboard. NICE. Refreshing sound straight from 15th anniversary shows. Solid first set enjoyed keep on growin'. Grooved to every bit of the second set. Still love listening to this show. 85 and the minuteman backdrop too
