This was the first Dead show I attended, I was a Freak back then and hitched a ride from Greentown PA. I lived with Pink Floyd fan and nobody else was into The Dead. I was one great show. After the show I wandered back stage and there was no security. I got into a conversation with Pig Pen and he offered me a ride to the Hwy on ramp on the Greyhound. I was the last on the bus and the first off a mile or so later.What a great night for a 17 year old back then. Rick Schmidlin

I just listened to this show for the first time and couldn't help but think what the Nuns at the Catholic Youth Center thought when the boys opened the show with Casey Jones driving that train...high on cocain. LOL there must have been a few Hail Marys said that night.
