This one smacks of something wild and crazy. I remember standing there about ten rows back during the eyes, stoned on acid, and watching the stage ascend like the spaceship in Close Encounters. That palace was a really wild place too.

probably one of, if not, the most INCREDIBLE show of all time
-sam


just took a listen to this show. WOW! What a gem of a show. Sound quality is great and the bombs Phil drops on you just drills a hole the size of GA in you. set I is very good wth a great song selection but set II is just sick. lots of grate noddling from jerry and phil is showing us why he is one the great bass players of all time. set III is sweet and to the point."Nothing like a Grateful Dead concert" get it and enjoy. :^))

After 'retiring' from sound engineering earlier that year I took a weeks leave from the new day job in order to work as one of the crew on the Dead's Ally Pally gig.

What with the temporary Brit 'humpers' and the band's own crew there were over 40 of us setting up - and it took around 48 hours .... no sleep but, with the band providing the appropriate, stimulating, 'supplies', who needed sleep ;)

3 x 40' trailers of gear + lighting - ferried across the floor on Transit flatbeds to where I was using a forklift to shift gear up onto the stage ... ever tried lifting a Steinway grand piano at full extension? (really freaked out the Steinway rep.)

Five of us were kept on (as general gofors) through the concerts - so I got to see and hear the whole lot for free (and I got a shed-load of money to be honest). Plus I was able to get my girlfriend in.

The Dead, a blonde and all the drugs I could handle - doesn't come much better.

I love the BE Women and Sugaree slow style in this era. Set II should be called "trip set" indeed. III goes aud at Sugar Magnolia and the encore, funny tht you can her the crowd yelling for Casey Jones.
I think the Scarlet and Row Jimmy are on teh Dick's Picks.

8/19/09 This was just released on IA this week.
The jam after Eyes is incorrectly called "jam" when its actually the first "Stronger than dirt."

Just recently got the 2016 Charlie Miller SBDs of these shows - WOW! The second set of this one is nothing short of sublime, IMHO reminiscent of the second set of the 10/16/74 Winterland show. If you don't have this one yet you owe it to yourself to grab it while you can.

They're (still) a band beyond description....
