Since it was 1977 and I was

Since it was 1977 and I was going to Andover, I only got to see Saturday night shows on the Spring tour, but this was my 6th show ever and third in 1977. It's funny because I always liked the 4/23 and 4/30 shows more back then, but this one got so popular later with the release of the Betty Boards. I admit that I LOVE this one over the last decade with a near perfect first set (Half Step->Big River is heaven) and the second set was beautiful is well as well, especially the three Jerry songs in a row.

My first Dead show, and what

My first Dead show, and what a beauty. I, too, came in to Boston from Andover and was blown away by the set list and the energy. I listen to it all the time.

Imagine my surprise as I surf to this page and find that the only other post is from fellow Andoverite and tape-sharer Dave Davis! Dave, if you read this, drop a line! -- Woody (Peter Warren)

Mine, too.

Hello Dave and Woody - The Andover campus must have been a lonely place that night because I was at the Garden, too. Went with a large crew riding "Mescalito." Quite the trip as you can imagine. We all shacked in the Essex Hotel across from South Station after the show and a particularly enthusiastic gang of freaks went onto the roof and climbed the scaffolding supporting the hotel's neon sign. There was an easy wind blowing eleven stories high that night and the view of Boston through the glow of red neon is not a sight I will ever forget. They opened that night with Promised Land. Sure felt like I had arrived.

another PA-er on that particular bus

My (Nick Gutfreund's) first show too. Hadn't been a fan...but the middle of the 2nd set converted me on the spot. I remember going with a large crew that night...just not sure who was there ;).
