Second show

William Clarke - this was my second show and I was by now a full on Dead fan. I thought this was a great show because the venue was gorgeous, one of those old art deco movie theatres from the 1920 in Southern California. It was small enough to feel close to the band but large enough to get crazy at the end when introduced "Casey Jones" which hadn't even been released yet ("Working Man's Dead" came out late '70 if I'm not mistaken). I also like the New Riders of the Purple Sage set that opened for the Dead, as it featured Jerry on pedal steel which I thought Jerry played brilliantly and Mickey on drums as he got to shine. Was a great "acoustic" set (from what I can remember - if you know what I mean......

Yes, my first show....too !!

Being my first show, and being 'influenced' by lotsa very fine Oaxaca, much of the show is a bit hazy. I do remember waiting forever for the show to begin. Jerry on steel, with NRPS, being very 'piercing' at times, 'Dirty Business',...Then, chuggin' 'Casey Jones' opener (finally, after much milling about on stage). Great show with 'out there' jams...Pigpen lettin' loose on 'Lovelight'....nice, poignient 'Morning Dew', I got out of the army the previous year....an a capella 'Goodnight'.

Went to most shows at the Palladium and Bowl....the great 6/17/72 mind melt... Just amazing memories especially when you locate and hear those shows again ....as close to teleportation as it gets. Huge thanks to Jer' and the boys for all the great, memorable, and amazing times.
