Epic set. They had only

Epic set. They had only repeated Lost Sailor > Saint over the course of five shows. Lost Sailor came so late in the second set that it sandwiched drum/space. Hight Time and Comes a Time before drums! She Belongs to Me in the Jerry ballad slot. The first Gloria since the Melkweg. Don't miss the Spoonful either. Spooky and trippy.

Simply an unbelievable night

Simply an unbelievable night of music. The Samson was epic, then High Time, followed by a great He's Gone, a spooky Spoonful. and then Comes a Time, and it goes on and on. I mean all three of those great Jerry Ballad's before Drums.

And that Gloria was rip roaring fun. What a great dancin' night.

You've never lived

I was front row for the first set of this show, right in front of Jerry. I was with a bunch of friends from the Annapolis area and we were definitely working at orthogonal angles to the rest of the world as the show began.

Everything was smoking until after Brent's solo in Rooster; I was just to the left of the right-side speaker set and his solo fried me, although not as much as our friend Brian who chose that moment to bolt from the Coliseum and chase (and be chased by) his own personal demons across many of the building-tops on the Richmond skyline.

So, everyone has their "I swear" Dead moments and this was one of mine. After Brent's solo I was starting to tweak and I was starting to panic. Just then, I look up and Bobbie is looking right at me and literally pulls me back in with his slide solo (as hard as that is to believe). By the apex of his solo he was standing in front of Jerry and right in front of me. What could have been a second skyline casualty was averted by an attentive band member. Well, your mileage may vary anyway.

Whether or not that happened, it was still an incredible show in an acoustic wonderland. Too bad the second night locked us out hence...

What a breath of fresh air after the show before.

This show blew everyone away. It was the best of 85' save the Sunday night Greek show. Nice. One note is that Richmond police arrested like 600 some people in the two days of these shows. They arrested for things like urinating in public and underage drinking along with all of the usual things that you normally hear. They were just Jackasses. I remember being nervous the whole time in the lot. The Dead decided that they wouldn't ever play back here again. Well, weeks leter after Richmond calculated the millions of dollars in economic impact The Dead brought over the weekend they tried to back peddle but it was too late. I don't like Richmond much for this even if it is Bubby's home town.

Long drive great show.

Jerry just hit some balanced sweet place that night. High time was sooo good and spoonful let us all know something was happening. I loved it when Phil yelled out "Love Ya!!!" after the gimme some loving. Pure Joy!

I remember so well...

One of the greatest shows I ever saw/heard. I was one of the peeps busted after the show. "Flying high" in a Richmond jail was actually fun...some heads were smoking in the cell...hilarious. Joke of a courtroom session next morning...never paid the fine.
