Favorite Dead concert

This was the best Dead concert I ever saw - I was a freshman as MSU, and the Riders played as a warm-up with Jerry on pedal steel. The Dead were great, as far as I remember (we were all kinda wasted that night).

I sure hope that this show comes out as a Dick's Pick or a download, so I can listen to it again.

Hugh, Sam, posters, photos, Jerry, Pigpen, the Dead & the Farm

Hugh draws and prints his 1st poster. With a handful we walk up to the guy with the briefcase and say "hey, how you doin' look at these" Sam looks, smiles and politely says " nice artwork, but Tim's not with the band anymore. Don't worry though, it will be a great show" we agree, feel relieved and move on. Nice fellow that Sam Cutler.
The New Riders open the show.
Rumor is Jerry has been up for a while recording pedal steel tracks. Later on, denim shirt untucked, just like Annie pictured him, Jerry sits down and plays. I make a photo, a nice one I think, only to see latter in the darkroom I've placed the microphone in the middle of his forehead. I wish I still had that photo, blocked forehead and all.
 And the poster. It's after the show and I watch on stage as bolder fans smoke reefer with the band. Pigpen calls out to Jerry "hey you old fart, share some of those peanuts..."
Back at the farm I say " ...yeah I invited them over to party, but they said they couldn't..."
Whose to say differently?
