I remember a particularly blistering Wheel with Phil in dominant mode...the band meandered through the latter part of the second set until Phil insisted on fusing them together on the closer - a transcendent & celebratory Terrapin followed as a gleeful exhale of an encore.

This was my first Dead show. It was so different than all the other bands. I asked myself why are there all these hippies in school buses and VW California license plates? They all seem to know one another! Next thing you know I was one of them and never looked back.

WOW! A really nice show. A 5 minute intro til the first words for 'Fire', a great 'Terrapin' closer

Scarlet>Fire>Samson-1st of 44 times this spiffy duo was played.

Samson does not segue from Fire On the Mountain....about 5 minutes of tuning.

Terrapin was not played as an encore in this show, but rather it came out of The Wheel to end the second set.

My first Dead show too. 20th birthday. The image I remember, or seem to remember, is Jerry dancing, or doing something like dancing, shuffling his feet, on Scarlet Begonias.

This is an okay show. Not ground-breaking or anything.

The PITB to end the first set is awesome though. It gets out there, funky, and LOUD. Absolutely worth the time to listen. Resembles a '74 style Playing.

Terrapin doesn't sound as though it's the encore on my recording. Really seemed to me as though Terrapin came right out of Wheel.

My first show also. I was 19, over from U Delaware. Spent almost the entire show poking around for Acid (I got burned on a piece of Xerox paper). Next day my dormitory DH buddy asked how the show was. I replied, "yeah... okay." The kid next to me gasped. "What? it was AMAZING!" he cried. Listening to the tape 40 years (wow) later... I can hear he was right, it was a great show.
Always remember- one tape to another can sound very different!

First show...remembered barely being able to see the band through the smoky haze & Jerry getting animated in the second set. Terrapin was mesmerizing, stunned at no encore though.
