Comments:

One of the greatest second sets of the 80s maybe of all time. 3 of the greatest extended pieces the boys ever wrote played in one set and with phenominal precision and creativity back to back. One of the earliest NFA endings that the boys repeated throughout the 80s and into the 90s. The crowd kept the beat for the entire encore break, kicking Micky and Billie back into it before Baby blue and back into it after... Killer Audience tapes, dripping with life, of this show are available!

This was my first concert. I was a Freshman at SUNY Oneonta and did not like
popular 80s music. Some upperclassman had turned me on to the Grateful Dead in the Fall of 1982. They had about 20 tickets to this concert and we took four cars for the one hour drive. I had a 'mushroom burger' at Burger King and we went inside (general admission seating). I was so excited, I told my friends I was going down to the floor and I was pressed up against the wood barrier right in front of Bobby. There was this really spacy girl throwing aces everywhere and shouting Bobby. Unfortunately, I was still unfamiliar with most of their songs at the time and was probably more fascinated with the crowd than the band. I obtained an excellent quality tape in 1985 and could not believe it. Every song smokes. The Help>Slip>Franklins may be the best I ever heard as well as the Wharf Rat. First set is a killer too. In fact, I am going to listen to it right now. I did wind up becoming a serious Deadhead and seeing about 90 concerts through 1995. All I can say is I wish I was born earlier and had seen them many years earlier.

was in highschool at the time... the show sold out too quickly for me to get tickets. these were the days before ticketron - so what is a boy to do but to try and recreate his own counterfeit version? i got a very rude greeting as security guards and secret agents dropped in from every corner of the place and gave a not so kind reverse escort (just as my medication of choice was kicking in). i went to mcdonalds for a burger but was too pie eyed to eat or function. what was i to do for the next 12 hours? on my walk around town i saw a scalper and i paid everything i had in my pocket for an actual ticket. security looked at me cross-eyed but let me enter anyway - I WALKED INTO A WORLD THAT CHANGED MY LIFE that day. thanks to all who shared that wonderful evening.
