This was my 1st Show when I was only 15. I was a newcomer to the Dead. I remember thinking that the music was cool and that the "Twirlers" were too "Hippied Out" for me. I drank a beer during the second set a guy bought me that must have been slipped a dose, because I ended up tripping pretty hard, especially on Jerry who was wearing a Top Hat.

Now many years later I have finally been able to obtain my 1st copy of this show at archive.org and it is a very nice show indeed. I am bummed that Bird Song has a short sound failure (hopefully someone will get a copy uploaded that will fix this), otherwise the recording sounds great!

It is very cool to have a copy of my 1st show.

this show was weird.
some little kid (three years old) wandered off from his dosed out parents before they went through the gate. there were stage announcements durring the show asking if anyone had found him.i guess that the parents thought that everything would be cool and the kid would reappear out of thin air. he did turn up......he was found face down in a ditch full of water. not good. put a real damper on things.

Poor kid. He most likely missed the sixteenth playing of BUCKET.

My first West coast show and first show after returning to the states after 2 years in Japan. Was not disappointed at all and set the stage for me staying in CA 20 years. Whole different feel to West coast shows vs East coast ones...more mellow
