All things considered, the 1/2 Step is PERFECT. It might be the best song you should introduce a future dead head to.

One of the few shows where there were 3, count 'em, 3 bass solos during the show.

Anyone recollecting this show should remember the scene getting in. My friends and I were near the front when the doors opened, and mere weeks after a fatal incident at a Who show in Cincinnati, many folks still had that fresh in mind as the tension built to opening the doors for a G.A. show. Well the glass doors got broken and several folks got pushed through. Don't know how badly hurt the folks who went through the broken glass were, but that was a harbinger of the weird vibe of the night.

To us at the time, the band seemed plugged into the vibe as well, and to this day I still hear an edge to the band's performance that sets this show apart from all others. One of, if not the, best live show I attended.

Re: Bob Page's comment above:

There was a huge crush when the doors were opened resulting in doors getting ripped off the hinges, broken glass, etc...

I got in without having to take out my ticket and I still have the intact ticket. I was a little sore that I could have gotten in free instead of coughting up the exhorbitant sum of $7.50!

But Bob has got the chronology wrong as far as the tragic Who concert in Cincinnati was concerned. That concert didn't occur until December of 1979, but when I heard of it my mind immediately flashed back to the mob scenes I witnessed at this show as well as the one at Cornell where it might have not been as bad as Rochester, but I was in a much worse mental state as far as coping with it was concerned. At least in Rochester I was fairly sober and that might have saved me from getting hurt!

Anyhow, the music was great and it's narvelous that we can go and listen to it again. The next night in Binghamton was similarly brilliant, eveven more so, IMHO!

Oops!

Thats 'marvelous' NOT 'narvelous'

or perhaps both! :)

My second show, road trip coming in from Buffalo with college friends. I got to move all over the space and spent time right in the front row by the stage and later just sat in the back and relaxed and took it all in. I swear I can see myself in one of the photos in the Dick's Picks CD, but who knows.

Before the show, the crowd outside the building was so densely packed that movement was limited. The crowd swayed back and forth, and at times we were almost lifted off our feet, wi people beneath and on top of you. When the pressure from the crowd burst the doors open, it was like a dam opened, and people poured into the building. The concert, ultimately, was great, but the scene beforehand was just nuts. It was a crazy and memorable night!

Listened to this for the first time in almost 10 years. Still good but doesn't hold up like it once did.

Bob Page the Who incident was in 79 not 77. I saw the last Who show of that tour at the Capitol Centre in Md,
