awesome show

I loved this show. I was a senior in college and bummed a ride from someone I didn't even know that is still a good friend of mine. He had a Ford bronco full of beautiful women and I had a great time with one of them that worked her way to the front of the stage with me.
Look at the song selection....It was one of my favorite shows and my favorite Spectrum show.
Great memories!!

Closest I've been to the stage

I had a ticket for a floor seat that didn't exist because of where the sound & light boards were placed. They upgraded me to 3rd row between Jerry & Brent.

Technical difficulties were forgivable that night, as everybody was on. Your basic Spectrum Dead show- the boys tight and psyched to be there before a rowdy crowd.
I saw a bunch of shows on this fall tour. This and the Monday Garden (The Dew) show are stand outs. On tape and MP3 this has always sounded amazing, especially set 2- real swiss watch like Dead!
