This was my 1st show. It really was an amazing experience for me. It changed my life in many ways. I'll never forget it.

Long Playin'

It seemed like the Playin' in the Band went on and on. Worth a listen if you can get a copy better than my piss-poor cassette.

I was looking ahead at the set list from the 21st. It looks like Playin' went on for about 48 hours.

The Jupiter-Two Spaceship

Ah, The Hampton Coliseum in the fog, in the 80's. With the exterior lights happening Jerry was preparing us for lift-off.

Also this was the start of Dan Healy dodging the FCC, with a stealth FM broadcast.
I made a great tape of the 2nd set of this show from my Panasonic boom-box at the Sheraton.

I also used Tully's D6 recorder for patching-in to some Nakamichi 300's mikes on the floor. Recently I heard that the tree-lined walkway that takes the most-stoned of Heads directly to the front doors, is No More. Too bad.

Oh well. . . the Visions of Johanna was another historic milestone that the Grateful Dead just laid down, and flawlessly perfect too with all of Dylan's 16 verses.

We also got to hear The Mighty Quinn that was encored with at the New Years show. Tully got that recording too.

3rd round...

Visions from this show are fading...but not the Visions of Johanna. Can't say I really knew that song at the time but I did know something special was happening. The energy from the crowd was powerful. Can't remember how I got there or who I was with...wasn't a licensed driver by that time. I do remember a wooden bowl full of the seediest shwag imaginable....sometimes change is great!

I think this is when GDub, Sean and Scotty C. went to their first show and it was really great to be there with them.
