outstanding recording

There is an outstanding recording of this over on internet archives. Love the Aud " FOB " recordings. Many prefer soundboards. I for one don't I would always pick a great aud because it captures the feeling of a givin show. On a side note Not sure how many got into these shows seems many of my friends got shut out.
Side not Brent does a little scat during Throwing stones. Is always nice seeing the boys in the hometown .

Got a miracle

I failed to get tickets via mail order for this show. It was pretty much gone from my mind until I won $500 playing blackjack in Tahoe the night of 3/30. The sun was coming up as we were driving back to Sacramento, and I remembered the Marin shows. I had some unplanned cash so I talked my new wife into going straight there instead. We hung out in the parking lot all day, no sleep, and no tickets. As the sun started going down it was getting cold, so we got in the car and put our sign in the windshield. We didn't have much hope but we stuck it out, and 30 minutes before showtime a guy taps on the window and offers us 2 tickets in the orchestra pit for $60 a piece. Of course we snatched them up. They were the 2nd row back from the stage! We could lean forward and touch the stage from where we were sitting. Plus they were located toward the center-right of the stage, right in front of Jerry. There were plenty of times where I was sure Jerry was looking at and singing directly to my wife. Wow! Just wow! It's a small venue, and the acoustics were very different than the big outdoor and indoor shows we were used to. Brent's keyboard seemed particularly dominant. No other show can compare to this one for me, just because of the circumstances. I'm writing this comment 32 years later, and the details still seem fresh in my mind.
