Great Venue

Is it me, or were the boys consistently great at Nassau Coliseum? Never missed a show there from 78 through 84.

First show

I think this was my first dead show - it was one of the first as I distinctly remember the Half-step into Franklins Tower - Cape Cod could have been first because I also remember driving up to the Cape in my pals giant station wagon. A whole carload of high school kids going to our first shows, what a blast!!! Memory is a little faded after 25+ years but I know we were having fun.

My First Show

This was the first show I went to and the guy that brought me bought me a little bumper sticker that said, appropriately, "There's nothing like a Grateful Dead Show." Truer words were never spoken. What a wonderful intro into the GD Family. I'm sure if I looked hard enough I could find the sticker..and the recording of the show he gave me for my 16th birthday a few weeks later.

Thank you, Monty. It has, indeed, been a long, strange trip.

My 1st show too!

Like many others here, this was also my first show. I was 16, and with a crew of many we piled into Mike S's Chevy wagon, made the drive out to the show from Jersey, getting blitzed on the way. Memories? Well, not much. Piling out of said wagon in traffic on the dreaded LIE for a 'relief' break; I remember 1/2 Step into Franklins, to open, and Sugar Mags to close, followed by Casey Jones for an encore. Much later I would learn that it was Brent's 1st Casey Jones... As always, listening to the tapes in retrospect, it was a great show... That Franklin's SMOKES...

trouble ahead trouble behind

Great show. For the record the Nassau Coliseum was a nasty place to see a show and the police were the worst here than any other place I ever saw a concert.

first 35 minutes

the half step -> franklins opener seemed to last a lifetime. and then some. it seemed like they jammed forever before starting the lyrics to franklins

very nice

Here today listening again and commenting because this show looks good on paper but smokes in sound. There are so many shows over looked on the internet archive because of the set list I think. This one has smoking jams Brent was really having fun on this tour for sure he was letting it all hang out.
