Take Me Out to the Ball Game......
"Green Onions" opened the second set.
Silver Stadium organist Fred Costello was always sneaking bits of Dead tunes into the game - just as the inning would start, he'd give us a taste of Shakedown, or Touch, or Eyes...it was inevitable that the boys would play there one day (especially since Red Wings GM Dan Mason was a Head!)
If I remember correctly, Garcia was wearing a blazer at this show. It was light drizzle rain (hence, the opening tunes).
Yes, Green Onions opened that second set.
I got a ticket to this show by giving a dude a hug. he looked really loaded and kept asking folks for a hug an no one would give him one. This I noticed just walking near the guy. I went out of my way to get to him and gave him a big-ass bear hug and rubbed his twisted head.
As I walked away he called me back and said something to the effect of: "Hey, man, I've been waiting for the person who gives the best hug to give this to, and you're that person." He handed me a ticket. I was ticket-less for the show at that point, so it worked out nicely for the both of us!
i remember box and phil leather lunging it as i walked thru the gate to get in
Yep, u might rmember it rained AFTER the boys started playing. A not unusual phenomena when they played weather related tunes! This was my brother's first show. Well, his first was the one before at Saratoga, but he didn't get in for that! :)
Are you kind?
Once I got a burner I was lucky enough to find this show on archive.org. Cold Rain & Snow and Believe It Or Not still stand out in my mind. Plus the Green Onions tag at the start of Set Two. The other thing that I remember is after the show talking to a guy parked next to us from Idaho. He said he was heading back home to see his Dad. Never did catch his name.
First show - not for me, but for my 9-month old son. My wife and I were interviwed by a reporter named Brian ? from the Syracuse newspaper. The next day we bought the newspaper and were delighted to find that Garth, our 9-month old, was the lead for Brian's article.
What a great way to pop my cherry! Pretty memerable experience. Great setlist, scene was real cool and I really dug seeing them at Silver Stadium.
I was about second row Jerry side and wept during Beleive it or not. What a cold day in Rochester. The weather cleared into the show. One of my most memorable shows ever for me. Jerry's ballads were on fire.
