Man was it hot. I mean upper 90's. We even formed our own weather system.

yeah and Jerry was about to collapse as his body was shutting down heading towards a diabetic coma!!

this show pretty much sucks...but compared to the next day's disaster it was just very mediocre whereas the 7/7/86 show was a complete meltdown.

don't bother with either of these shows they are flat out terrible!

I was at both days, I don't really remember this one as a great show, but the 7/7 show, second set was one of my all-time favs. Everything after Space was awesome, with the Satisfaction and ensuing band-intro being a defining moment of the thirty-something shows I saw.... Still makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck.

These two days were average. They were not horrible. It was right before Jerry went into a diabetic coma which is why they didn't play again until December.

wow if these were 'average' assuming there are about 1/2 as many shows worse or a lot worse and about 1/2 as many better or a lot better then .. then ... then I guess I don't know what average is

You had to be there! This show was phantasmagoric!!!! Why is no one talking about Dylan and Petty?!! Dylan came on with the heartbreakers and did almost an entire set, then more Petty. It was freakin hot, but there was a firehose dousing the crowd. Alot of the heads stayed in the parking lot until the Dead came on to play two full sets and mostly at night. The Iko-Iko and St. of Circumstance were mind blowing and there was plenty-o space to dance your ass off! I never had so much fun in one day.....maybe these recordings suck, but you can say that about most statium boots.
