Unfortunately, I came on the scene late. This was my second show; my first was the night before, and I caught a dozen shows altogether. This one confirmed for me that I was deadhead, and the night before wasn't a fluke.
I kind of agree with the first post. I remember this show was on a sunday night, so it was for the hardcores a little bit. all the working folks had the weekend, but the real diehards liked the shows on the weekdays, and sundays..
Help slip frank was cool
I remember tom thumb blues was upbeat becuase Phil would get into that tune so much
wave to the wind had been re-vamped to improve the lyrical section, it wasn't as wordy as the previous initial versions...I think this tune is under-rated somewhat, and Corrina just seemed like it always is, too forced and blank, even though I've seen and heard better Corrina's, the song almost didn't fit the GD...the vocal harmony was cool , but the song itself was rather plain in it's structure, sure it was simple, but I can't put my finger on it...alot of folks were saying that it would replace the estimated slot in the second set, but man, that would have been brutal. I appreciate the GD for trying to be fresh
of course, sugar magnolia was cool, and UJB>china doll was a nice feature that nobody expected
I wish that for just one time, You could stand inside my shoes, and for just that one moment, I could be you - Bob Dylan, Positively 4th St.
This was my last of 40, just weak.
first atl show
Johnny D. Cobra china doll was magical
Got arrested coming from hotel in wonderful cobb county.officer was a real jerk,threatened to shoot my dog.Cobb County jail was a scary place with my New York accent.spent the worst 4 days of my life.Missed Chapel Hill.After watching law enforcement arrest people randomly at the omni i should have took the hint and left for next show.Any other horror stories about Atlanta?
I had called that Help/Slip/Frank the night before when they didn't play it...as well as the Half-step they opened the first night with...I called that as we were leaving the the Cap Centre parking lot after the last night there! But I danced my ass off...we had 2nd row seats all 3 nights. The second night we we were doing some 'shrooms, yawning so much, Jerry caught a few yawns from us! Peace
