IKO IKO

All I remember about this show was being mesmerized by Iko Iko into Dew into Sugar Mag. Didn't even recall that there was an encore.

The Night I got on the Bus

What can I say but It all began here. It will continue till I am dust. The Dead was everything I was looking for at 17 and still relish today for my quality of life. This was also the year I met Buckminster Fuller and the two realities meshed well. The music that night helped me see and realize what life libery and the pursuit of happiness is in the adventure of life. Whoever says Go to Heaven was a crappy album is all wet for it got me here and further that night in the War Memorial.

Right In Front Of Jerry

This was probably the best show I've been to. It was general admission and I was lucky to get right in front where Jerry was. I mean 10 feet from me. And to be treated to Iko->Dew->sugar mags WOW!!! And to top it off, on the way out Jerry almost ran right into me going into his limo. What a long strange trip that was.

In the land of Eastman Kodak

My second -- and last -- show in Rochester at the War Memorial. Drove in from Buffalo with my brother, and my brother's roommate. A great solid night of music. Too bad most of it is missing from the vault. Loved that space into Iko into Dew. Iko, once again, was very laid back. It's amazing to me how the Dead were able to lay way back on tunes most bands would play much faster. The ability to take one's time is vastly under-rated. I was also very much into Go To Heaven during this year, and it was very pleasing to hear these renditions of Sailor, Saint, and Althea.

You had everthing sewed up tight

Before the show started I recall Phil coming out to tune his bass. The only time I remember that happening. First set was amazing. Sugaree was beyond warp speed. China Rider kept us at top speed. Lost Sailor and St of Circumastance were among exceptional versions of all the first set songs. After first set I left the crazieness of the floor and found friends in seats on the side of stage. I could breathe again!.. Compared to how the first set went Althea was a soft landing. The Iko was laid back and wonderful. The Dew was special. Thank you Grateful Dead.

This was an awesome road trip NYC to Oneonta - camping - "we didn't know we had to pay for the firewood!" - lonnnnng story. Then on to Rochester, then to Springfield - didn't get into that show but what a long strange trip it was!
