The only reason I didn't give this great show five stars is because despite having woven the PITB theme throughout the entire show they never actually finished it! It could have been the ultimate salute to the tune if they had finished the song.
*No one had any idea what Touch of Gray was when they encored with it either!
this is the show that put touch of grey out..and as an encore.. at the time it did not seem wild, but after a few more shows you realized how ballsy that was to do
I got to this show late and walked in to the spaciest jazz jam imaginable. My first thought was - What happened? How late are we? Soon I noticed the unmistakable melody of Playin' and then the opening notes to... Crazy Fingers! Amazing! Also a great Let It Grow in the 1st set.
Very mellow show, too mellow, kinda boring, especially after seeing The Who the week before. Then the encore, a great new song called "Touch of Grey" - WOW! What was that?!
Well, there ain't much I can say about my 1st show except...Welcome to Shakedown Street Boy!!!! This was an incedible evening for me as I had NO IDEA what I was about to experience. I finally undestood the meaning of the SYF symbol. My head was gone!

My sister took me to this show (and every other one I saw). It took me a long time (until Telluride, really) to get the special-ness of a Dead show. Of course, the music kept drawing me back, but I couldn't see beyond the surface for a long time.
I seem to recall that in this show there was a whole lot of Good Lovin' rhythm bouncing around Billy and Micky throughout the second set, and what really blew me away was that they kept the beat going throughout the whole set.
I really enjoyed the first set. Every song. To open with Playin into Crazyfingers was great. Rooster, Dupree's, BIODTL, and escpesially It must have been the roses. Roses has always been one of my favorites. Then Let it grow and Day Job.
Another favorite is Shakedown and then a lovely rendition of Sailor-Saint. To top it off they encore with Touch of grey which really got crowd excited. I'm so glad I was there. Gone are the days.
