Garcia is so frustrated at his voice that he slammed the mic down during Black peter
-dave (02/24/2008)


it blows my mind how garcia could sound so shot in this show with his voice sounding like its on its last leg then not even 3 days later is singing like his old self again at the centrum, namley the 4/9/88 show; his voice sounds really strong and all the guys are playin some really inspired stuff. i guess thats just the grateful dead....off some nights but magical on others.

they usually always played really good in hartford too, the two shows they played there in 1990 were so great. 3/18/90 and 3/19/90 - highly reccomend those especially 3/19

I remember the whole frustrated mike thing. I was listening to this on gdradio.net and it sounded like that show so I checked here of course. 88 was an interesting year for certain.

Jerry musta been breathin that Jersey air for too many days.
-Murphy (03/26/2014)


More like breathing too much of the afghani heroin, but like the rest he'd probably blame the tinfoil
