I will never forget the rain & the timeing of the songs . good friends, good times !!!!
I got a miracle for that show. A floor ticket of all things. Rusted root brought the house down that night. As I worked my way up front, Jerry looked down as Fast Eddie and I jammed out and he gave me a look of, who's the new kidd. The rain set was great.
My girlfriend was at this show when she was 14, and it was by far the most meaningful musical experience of her life. I'm trying to find a video of the show to give her for her birthday, and I'd really appreciate any help. You can email me at email@example.com. Thanks so much in advance.
This was a solid show. Arguably the last "normal" show though the St. Louis Shows might be able to stake a claim on that (except for the arena lighting and the death at campground). Rapid decline at Chicago obvious enough to makes me thinks a stroke or adverse health event may have been involved. Sure 1994 was usually better but the difference between this and say 7/8/95 is too marked to miss.
In fairness I started the tour at Detroit and had only heard the smoking 2/26 soundboard with the wicked visions of johanna. I understand there may have been some serious shakiness earlier in the tour too.
A really close friend of min and I stood in line at a local Kaufman"s Its a chain dept store. It was also the only ticketmaster outlet in my neck of the woods at that time. They had a lottery to determine who would purchase first. I WON!
10 rows back Jerry side!
Man, you guys have me with tears in my eyes here at the keyboard! I am from the 'Burgh and saw my first and last shows at Three Rivers (7/8/90 was my first and this one was, of course, my last). This wasn't the best show I have seen, but it was purely magical, being in my hometown and with the rain set. I had some wonderful friends by my side, from home and other places, and I will never forget it. Had a great time in the lot and inside. We miss you Jer :-) And yes, your SOTM went straight to our hearts - A lovely view of heaven, but I'd rather be with you...who knew how true that would be, in such a short amount of time :-(Glad we are all still EVERYWHERE!
Immediately after this show, which was my 3rd and final show, I thought that 6/25/95 (my 2nd) was better. Once I got those sweet FOB tapes I realized that this one was on par with 6/25. Those tapes, available for DL on archive.org of course, and now all the youtube videos of the RAIN that opened the 2nd set make this one, even without a SBD or an offical release, a well documented experience. Also of note is the DRUMZ, specifically about 3 minutes in, when Mickey just goes NUTZ after a nice setup by Bill.
it was there a couple of years ago anyway
This show wasn't a great one, but was probably one of the better ones of '95. Jerry was a train wreck this tour and the band was in desperate need of a vacation.
But it was a really interesting opening to the 2nd set. During the set break, we see the sky turn black as night. An absolute hell storm was about pound us and I thought that the band may wait out the brutality and come out late, but just before the sky was about to unleash it's fury the boys come back out on stage.
So they start doing the opening lines to Rain. You know how after the little vocal intro part they start the meat of the song off with this giant drum beat? Well right on cue during that big heavy drum sound the sky just opened up and it poured and poured. Absolute pinpoint timing! You can go watch for yourself on You Tube. Didn't stop until right before Terrapin and for whatever reason that fact helped Terrapin feel more majestic. Gloria was always a cool encore.
Billy comments in his new book that this show was the Grateful Dead's last great prank, rolling through 4 "rain" songs in a row while we got soaked. It was fun!
