November 27-28, 1968 Kinetic Playground Grateful Dead/Procol Harum/Terry Reid
IS there anyone out there that has any recollection of anything else they played this night or any details about this show? I am a 46 year old long time DeadHead and veteran of countless shows. While the Dead were playing this show I was about 40 miles west of them out in the Chicago suburbs being born. Any info would be Gratefully appreciated!!! Peace
Terry Reid was first, played Mr. Fantasy on the organ- hey, I liked it.
Procol Harum was great, played Whiter Shade of Pale, etc., had a honky tonk piano as well as the organ, but I wasn't so sure about the album they were touring, Salty Dog, I think. Liked it later.
The Dead were great- Morning Dew, The Other One, St. Stephen, and the first 45 minute Turn On Your Love Light I ever heard. I remember looking at my friends, "What the heck? Another verse?"
I miss Pigpen. And the Captain, of course, but I've missed Pig longer.
