Mirrorball

Jerry just kept sprouting wings and flying up off the stage There were thousands of him flying around the room. Every minute or so one would shock you back to the show. Ohh I guess that was just the mirror ball. They sold beer there too. Hey asdk the guy in front of you if he has any acid! Then there was the fire works. The band was hiding behind the piano. So that was it The only time I never saw an encore.

This is the only time out of over 200 concerts that I was moved tp tears. It was during Morning Dew.

The archives list the next

The archives list the next show after this one as July 21, 1974 at a California venue...did they go on vacation for 21 days? I'm pretty sure I saw them with the infamous "Wall of Sound" at the St. Paul Civic Center (St. Paul, MN) sometime during this stretch, but I could be wrong...memories from that period are getting kind of "hazey" if you know what I mean. But, I do remember the show itself well, as if it were somehow etched into my brain with acid...
