This was the first concert I had ever seen. Jack Straw and Casey Jones are really the only 2 songs I remember from that night as it was a first for some other things too. Can you say stoned?
I guess that's why Jack Straw has always been one of if not my favorite song. We can share the women we can share the wine!
What a great line to remember
I too don't remember much of the music, but largely because I was sitting near the aisle to the lobby at the front of the stage and some guy who didn't want to get in line kept asking me if he could climb over me in exchange for his Earth Shoes.
I do remember Phil dropping the bomb for The Other One - it shook me to my core.
Wharf Rat is what sticks in my mind - Jerry slowed it down and sung soulful - also the beginning when they unfurled the "Wake of the Flood" Album cover banner - (it could have been the beginning of the second set - how could I remember) I would love to have that banner hanging in my loft. Although I can see it behind the band right now :)
Look at that countrified first set - awesome.
Great time on the floor - rarely missed a Philadelphia show after that all the way up until 1995. The good old Spectrum, low key, peaceable vibe and the parking lot didn't get stupid until the 90's.
Why do I have to wait until I'm 105 years old for this show to be released. We ain't gettin' any younger out here ya know....
This was a great show! The wake of the flood material was fresh and very hot played live. I also remember Wharf Rat as a memorable rendention that night.
