Got to see this at the Felt Forum and made by best tapes to date,I thought this might be the wave of the future with simulcast and all but it did'nt catch on I guess.But no hassles,no lines,no spilling beer on my equipment just some great heads with a lot of room to dance and an amazing sound that I can't imagine it could have been better at RCMH.But I wasn't there so WTF do I know.
I was there. Excellent setlist. Franken and Davis were hosts. It was my first date with my (now) wife. A great show.
RODGER ALLINSON i truely loved gettin an acoustic set before the reg first and second sets this was a great show as were most of the radio city run
This acoustic set was the bomb, rest of the show musically was okay. It was my first introdcution to Franken.
All 3 of the Radio City shows I caught were real nice.......this one was special b/c, at 17 to catch 2 at radio City was enough.....this one was simulcast in my hometown at South Mountain Arena in W.O., NJ and went there with much of the "crew" from home. had to do that b/c me and a few buds had just been caught driving with some doobage and beers trying to catch the midnight movie of the ead movie..........those were the DAZE!
I have always counted this as if I had attended this show because I saw it on the big screen in Chicago. After the initial orientation, I had the feeling that it was live and there was no screen. Between sets was a costume contest with the winner receiving tickets for the New Year Show--I thought that the Jerry Garcia look-alike that won didn't deserve to win as much as several other costumes. By the way, it was at the Aragon Ballroom--not the Granada, but you were close.
Well after one of these shows I met a friend on the street and he gave me a tank. We pile into the back of my friends van and try to make our way back to the island. After about 10 minutes the driver respectfully requests that we hold off on the tank until we reach home. The laughing was so intense that he could not drive. These shows were so totally amazing considering acoustic sets, lots of dancing room and the historic Radio City Music Hall. We really put the rock into Rocketts.
After waiting in line all night for RCMH TIX I was rewarded with 3 of the best shows I've ever seen. NYC tourists saw deadheads waiting on line and thought either we were homeless and city let us sleep there or there was was some sort of tv show we were waiting for or we were some sort of cult. They were right. Hell's Angels dancing in aisles right behind us. A tour of tours
The setlist was awfull....the playing was tired and lazy. By now the acoustic was preditcable. COME ON...it's HALLOWEEN with Franken and Davis.....stir it up boys!!!! Open with Werewolves of London.....Pull SOMETHING NEW out of yer acoustic hats!! Does anyone remember that the Bob Weir band played the NEXT DAY at RCMH???????
