Awesome Show... awesome time

... Dancin', smokin', drinkin'... what a great weekend, what a great time, what a wonderful concert... Jerry and Bob were in perfect form. Greg F. introduced me to the Dead, I still miss him and wonder what happened to him... oh well.

Life was great back then... still good when you listen to the Dead.

my first show - wish I went to both shows.

Beautiful Summer day. I had just dropped out of CU Boulder and was living on the hill, selling shrooms and pot for a living. Working part-time at the Youth Hostel for free rent and change, where I met my future ex-wife.

Tripping and laughing at Warren Zevon jumping around the stage, thinking his music really did not fit.

The show was memorizing. I was just getting into their music, having being turned on to them by some friends. Beautiful hippy girls throwing flower petals. Thought I recognized the chubby guy who introduced the Dead after shadow-boxing as someone who tried to pick me up a week earlier.

Bought a Mr. Natural T-shirt outside the stadium.

alien infidels and bad boogie

Drove out from Long Island in a VW diesel rabbit. It was a little cramped but as I recall we made it on two tanks of gas and in 36 hours. Arrived Friday morning went to the campus of Colorado U and checked out Folsom Field. The gate was locked but we met Uncle Hock who told us about the last time the Dead played at Folsom Field. Still early morning we wandered across the street and found the Lazy L motel. Couldn't pass that up! The show was late afternoon with Warren Zevon opening both days. On the seventh I remember clouds and sun with clouds taking over by the end of the day. First set started with Jerrys' volume down. Listening to tapes later Jerry was smoking but didn't hear it that way the first time. First set songs were well played and enjoyable. Second set started with a smokin Bertha -Greatest. I was ready for take off Althea and Lost Sailor/Saint were not the songs I was looking for in that spot. The space out of drums was very nice. NFA ,Wharf Rat and Good Lovin seemed off the mark. I wasn't cleared for take off Token encores - even 2, seemed lacking. Went back to the Lazy L subdued, hoping for something that could at least take us to the heights of the Flat Irons at the next show.The Saturday night at the Lazy L was one of those scenes. Fun loving heads fear and loathing in Boulder.

My first show

Ended up going to Alpine Valley and Grand Rapids too.

The best of memories with one of my most favorite people, Jeff Bayer.
