First concert I ever went to.....Selland Arena, Fresno....I was a sophomore in high school at Fresno High....I had really got into the music of San Francisco during the "Summer of love" in 1967....I bouht the first Dead album in the spring of 1967 when it was released....

Vally fever, a local fresno band opened and plyed a greet 45 minute set...tremendous light show over the entire back wall of selland arena....

Country Joe and the Fish followed Valley fever...great set including all the songs from the first album (Superbird, Love, Martha Lorraine, Flying High, Death Sound Blues, and the rest) AND a cool new song called "I Fell Like I'm Fixin To Die"....

The Greatful Dead came out last....played a great long jamming version of Good Morning Little School Girl for about 25 minutes (as far as I can remember)...then they played Viola Lee Blues........and played it, and played it, and jammed on it...for a long long time..seemed over an hour.....

Great first concert.....

Now..as I try to remember it.....they did play only two songs (they came in very late for the gig that night)......yes, they did play "Good Mornin' Little School Girl" for their opening...and it lasted about 20 minutes...then they played "Turn On Your Love Light" for a very long time (not "Viola Lee Blues", as I previously noted)...they jammed on "Love Light" for quite awhile..and that was it....
