swaying on the balcony

I seem to recall watching from the Balcony of the old Garden and that when everyone was jumping up and down on the balcony the whole thing was bouncing like the end of a diving board.

I seem to recall the Boston Cops being a little overly eager to bust and hassle people. Good show...could sworn they placed Broke down palace though

Redsocks suck!

Msn the dead just loved to play here. They almost never gave a poor performance here. This night was no exception. Help->Slip->Fire. I still remember stopping for a moment, not believing what I was hearing.
Awesum run these shows were. Only draw back was the Masshole cops, & driving in Boston. The drunk Irishman must have gotten his cow drunk & fallowed it. That's how they laid th roads out.

My guess ...

Is that Bruce got on Jerry's case a bit at setbreak for a sort of lackluster first set. Hornsby still believed that that Dead could do anything, if Jerry was on point.

So what better way to break out of a mini-funk after the setbreak than do one of the more amazing switch-a-roos the band ever pulled?

Never forget that moment when they slipped into Fire. Can still hear it now. There were like six ovations before Garcia even finished singing, "Long-distance runner ..."

They tore that old building down right there. Amazing moment in Dead history.

H > S! > FIRE

I too was at this mammoth and a highlight of course was the totally unexpected, never-before-attempted transition from Slipknot into Fire on the Mountain. Lost in the moment (and my own innerspace), I did turn to my buddy and declared "I know this song, but I can't place it!!!"....that was just how captured by the magic I was, in the moment. Killer run all around, these Garden shows. DP 17 among them.

This is what I loved about this Band

Chasing the energy was always what we where doing, when Jerry started laying down the first notes of Fire, the Boston Garden lit up. I remember it seemed like the house lights came on with those first few notes, then back to the Red lights and darkness as they started to get in the groove.

Noting against Vince but when Bruce was sitting behind the Grand Piano on the stage with the boys with that little Beethoven on top. Jerry seemed liked he did not want to disappoint and was more adventurous.

This Fire, Berlin 90 and MSG 90 are my fav's with Bruce, I liked when Jerry gave him the nod to take the lead.
