I was there. It was a terrific show, but the fools in the Milwaukee newspapers said it sucked. They wanted to Dead to do all that dumb stuff like say Milwaukee audiences are the greatest in the world and give a 10-minute introduction/explanation to every song. The Dead hardly said anything to the audience. They just played, man. Wasn't that why you paid your money to see them? Hey, the Dead weren't the latest flavor the month out of England.

I'll admit I only knew 3 Grateful Dead albums at the time -- Workingman's Dead, American Beauty, Skull & Roses, so I was a bit disappointed I didn't hear New Speedway Boogie, Box of Rain, Truckin' or Mama Tried. I was also sorry Pigpen wasn't there. I guess I didn't know how sick he was at the time. I loved Easy Wind and Big Boss Man, but I knew they couldn't do those without the Pig. Still, what they did play was sweet and tough enough to make the bishop kick out a stained glass window.
