Attendees of this show
After "Shakedown Street" came to an end, I looked at my friend Jay and at the same time we said "On" this was the one show you knew from minute one they were cooking tonight.
In a documentary on Brandford Marsalas called "The Music Tells You" you see footage of Brandford talking with Jerry before the show. And the band walking toward the stage with Jerry saing to Brandford "Just come up now" . Me and my buddy were by the sound board and we saw a camera there too. So how about this one as a "View From The Vault" release?
I too attended this show, the last show while I was living on the east coast. I had to sit in the hallway to overcome a "chemical imbalance" but once I heard Shakedown Street begin, I knew I had to get to my seat. Needless to say, it was the best Grateful Dead show I have ever seen. I was lucky to be there.
Second best show I had the pleasure to attend - )I rank 9/20/90 slightly higher), and my second Dark Star.
I saw god that night-----and it would have happened without the extra help I had----one of the best shows of the 90s-def top 5----if you dont have it get it---there used to be a nice board on Internet Archive,BUT,that is the show I was downloading the night the boys got greedy and took all the boards away from us
This Night Drums "And The Streets Rumbled For Ages" Space "As It Comes Raining In From Beyond" Check Out My Orignal Music at myspace.com/salaversano
Just clicking around on aproximate dates, trying to match up
shows I've seen. Got a direct hit here, by recognizing Shakedown opening and Branford Marsalis. Last time I ever saw the Dead, (started in ' 72).
As a guitar player, I used to love listening to Garcia play. I felt that Branford took precious time away from Garcia with his seemingly endless soloing. I could see it was entertaining to all on stage, however, I was slightly less so.
I realize you have to mix it up, however, enough with the sax, give me the guitar player.
We had great seats for this entire run, with the exception of this one night, where we were way up in the back, the "nosebleed seats" as people call them. We arrived very early and I'm not sure why, but went to the seats we sat the show before, 100's section, back along the tapers area, hung out in an empty row, and as MSG filled up, nobody came for the seats and we stayed there for the whole night. After it was over the guy in front of me said "I feel like I just witnessed something really special".. I replied you did...
I think that you all covered the bases. I almost didn't make the trip but I am and was so certain at the time that if I didn't make the short journey from Richfield I'd regreet it and I would have!!! and yes I too was standing on the moon, and she never did forgive me for not getting back here (Minnesota ) for her. "Oh well shes' been gone out of my life for more than a decade but this show will live on in my memory forever!
As I sit and watch this show on DVD, I know that anyone who wants a copy should get in touch with me, this show if fu*ing epic!
Missed dark star again - i remeber being angry about that
