One of my Favorites

I had some of the best seats ever for this show - 10 rows back right in front of Jerry. I swear my body levitated during Stella. One of my all-time favorite Philly shows.

spectrum the vibes

Everything is not for everybdy which is true but I just started useing this forum its funny your username caught my eye. so we have a least the spectrum in common. I guess my first spectrum show was around 1972 and I know I saw over the years more than 50 shows. The ammount of mind expanding music played by the band was vast and golden. Iam sure your show was life alttering I know mine was. My first was in Providence in 1971 I Even got backstage and one of the crew gave me some liquid LSD. You could say I was also hooked. The best thing the dead ever did was help me find my true love. I met her at a 1987 show in Providence. hope to hear from you. Those of use that got to see the band are brothers and sisters. Gotta go so later my sister.

My 1st too... and on my Birthday to boot

A great friend took me to this show for my 14th Birthday and as has been said... I too was hooked from the second the show started.

And WOW now it's 28 years later and this weekend, on the same day May 2nd, I had another unforgettable Birthday Celebration with my Dead family and friends..... Thank you Jerry for bring your brothers back together.

Long live the Dead!
