Vauge memory..

This is one of the first things I remember as a toddler. My parents were 70's heads, and took us to the occasional 80's show so we could stare in amazement at the jugglers, spinners, billowing smoke coming from the mouths of strange-looking, colorful dragons, etc.etc. Boy, am I glad! They prepped me for my full conversion during the 90's, long after they stopped going..They continued the line, and of course I took it to extremes to this day...Thanks, Mom & Dad!

Culd be the best Dead Show Ever

Was there with friends who went to school in Springvale Maine. The band was fired up and Jerry was on fire almost a Jerry perfect day! Great venue and weather. Outdoors on that field and it was a bring your own whatever you wanted to bring show. Security let everyone enjoy the day no problems at all! The dead came on around 5 and said goodnight about 4 or 5 hours later. Days like that just don't exist or take place anymore. It was magic. Possibly the best dead show and set list ever. Too bad no sound board recording seems to exist. Some pretty good taper shows available. I've seen many many shows over the years and this experience is at the top of the list. Energy start to finish!
