Hey this was the 50th Show at the spectrum ! awesome banner and intro before the show. Stranger and Sugaree was awesome.
"If you don't like where the shoes that fit are leading you. . . . Take them off and go barefoot." and "If you don't know where you are going. . . . then you can't possibly be lost."
Strong first set, imho, but could not stomach "Samba" that night. A bit too much beer at intermission, I had an upset stomach during "Samba." "Corrina" brought another episode, and by the time "drums" morphed into "space", I felt fine. Too short of a show, but overall it was still fun. I've grown much more wiser now, but still wish to return to this night.
God Bless the Grateful Dead forever.
I've worked at the Spectrum from 1988 but one of the biggest rushes I've had in my career was to see this show(as the guest of the very wonderful Mr Dennis Mc Nally) and watch the drop of the tribute banner from the Press Box with my then 6 year old daughter for her first concert. A true honor from a class gentleman and a terrific organization
Saw the whole run, the 5th was probably the best night, but the Stranger and Sugaree were really good on the 7th. Not very memorable otherwise.
Refused to go back in '95 to join the Garcia death watch. Too painful to see. He was already gone, and nothing was gonna bring him back. I loved Jer and the Dead just as much as anyone for 25 plus years....still do...but the Fat Man destroyed himself. I could not bear to watch.
