not u.s. blues
I was so drunk I thought it was of momentous importance that one could watch the band play and see the New Mexico State Prison off in the distance in the same view. There had been a big riot there earlier that year.
In between sets, I remember it rained... and early on in the second set, there was an amazing rainbow directly over the stage behind the band. I don't believe they saw it, but I'm sure they heard about it. "Let It Grow" was awesome!
Healey or Plotkin pulled Weirs wire on his mic during this best eva version of Wang Dang....we gonna pitchawangdangdoodleallnightlong....and we did!
The weather was absolutely great, the music and ppl even better!!! Went to big outdoor hot tub place afterwords w/ many of us there! Sooo Coool! - Yet hot - lol
One of the best memorys I have were these 2 shows. During the break there was a lightning storm behind the stage,followed by a rainbow and then an awsome 2nd set. Morning Dew with a Cold Rain Phil singing encore. Most of my tour buddys went home after Red Rocks and I tortured them with the Santa Fe tapes. Nothing beats the magic of a great GD outdoor show. "It all bleeds into one".
Redbeard gave me CD of the 1st half of the second set. Slip it into the player and marvel. At Slipknot I remember I listened in person. What an unbelievable treat.
