I was only a year old when this show as performed but I did see the Dark Star Orchestra recreate this show and it was great! Strong 1st set. Highlight was the Touch of Gray encore.

Sucks for mickey hart that his birthday had to be mired by such tragedies as 2001 and 2012. Two needless acts of violence that have ruined a great mans birthday. I'd personally rather remember this show, cause it was quite good. Not over the top or transcendant, but never the less, good.

This was my first shutout. I got in on sunday, and this show blows doors on that weak performance.
The bertha slams right into a very smoking promosed land. During candyman, jerry belts "take your money home" incredibly soulful. The crowd approves his "hand me my old guitar" line with audible approval. The tons of steel is HOT. Bent is ON. It must have been drink:30 for desolation row cause the tapes have lots of bleacher noise from people walking. The deal is hot and fast with only ONE cycle of "dont ya let that deal go down" before the " oh no" ending.
Sugar mag starts off set 2 weak and bubblegummy. Never really takes off. But the second set sugaree makes up for it. The jam from 7:37 to 8:40 is blazing. Estimated is pretty good but somethings not all there. Slow start to eyes, but jerry peeling notes in no time. The GDTRFB is great, too bad they didnt go one more time around. Fantasy is real nice by the end jerry and brent song a verse together. And then brents vocals with jerry in wharf rat. It will give you goose bumps. Sunshine daydream way more energy than the sugar mag earlier.
Touch of grey is very strong. A hard hitting encore versus a warm up opener.
