My third Dead show (out of a total of 25, which, over a 35 year period, isn't really very many, I admit.) All I remember was my dad drove me, and I was by myself, which I've never minded one bit. There were two ticket prices, like $7, and $5! I was up in the cheaper seats. A number of people were sneaking down into the 1st class area, but it was a 6 or 7 foot drop to get down, so I chickened out.
I remember prices being 3 to 5 dollars, but the student tickets were $2. My first Dead show. I was familiar with Live/Dead, but the band was concentrating on later material. So the only song I knew was Not Fade Away. I had seen several concerts and club dates by this time, and realized that this was the tightest band I'd ever seen play. I believe Pigpen was not present, so it was just a 5 piece band with Keith.
As in "best show I've ever heard" -- runs the range of emotions, the KMET guys step on the show and Bobby kind of shepherds them back to the corral... but the JAMS in the first three songs of the second set will tear the back of your head off, they are UNBELIEVABLE.
Drove all night across the moonlit painted desert from college in Flagstaff to catch this show. Some of the best back and forth between Jerry and Bob in the last set, ending with a killer Not Fade Away-Goin Down the Road. We were next to the left speaker bank right up front, my left ear rang for a week. One of Keith's first shows. Bobby and Jerry's between song banter was hilarious. Some guy yelled out "you're all high on coke" after Casey Jones, Jerry replied, no man you got it all wrong, listen to the lyrics man". Only distraction was the guy with the whoopie ring. Had a boot of the show but it walked, glad to still have access through the net.
went with girlfriend linda lieb RIP sugaree.... was on floor and the show was great... during the riders set, these kids in front of us were chugging a bottle of jack, especially on of em,cowboy boots and hats, wahooing to the rafters. they're just about through the bottle so the guys chick offers him the last hit. he passes, saying " no way, man, i'm savin' my head for the dead!" he rolls back on his heels,let's out a big "wahoo!' and goes straight back to the floor... passed out through every note of the dead's show! "i'm savin my head for the dead" indeed thanks for the great line, kid... used it many a time!... really remember jerry doing sugaree; just ambling through it, but so tight..... awesome show... think we went to ship's restaurant after the show, coming down from our acid buzz, and had a bowl of kadota figs....
