Comments:

I had driven 2200 miles across I-80 to see the run at the Delta Center, and it was worth it.

no way. Liberty was tight though. I was tripping like crazy at this show. It was interesting, I dropped a tab of acid right when Truckin' got goin' in the 2nd set. Drums/Space was out of this world. But come on, the 95 shows were god-awful. Jerry was so out of it.

I don't disagree that shows in 95 were harsh, at times quite rough. But, this little three-show run was good and carries good memories as a peak in the last years. I had a blast, and thought the shows had higher energy than those before and after.

Nice little 3 day run. The skiing was a nice day trip. Wish Jerry was still with us! Looking for sbd's from 19/20.
Jack had some cold ones for me & 2 buds

Not a big fan of the 95 shows, but this one I liked. "Salt Lake City" WoooooHooooo!
-minky


you know, i cant tell you all how tired i am of hearing about how ALL of '95 was bad. just not true. im listening to this 2/21 show now, and its got surprises, outstanding vocals (especially 1st set), connections to the venue (1st two songs), a VERY upbeat "black throated wind", some very fine solo's from jerry, and a truly INSPIRING "so many roads" with amazing vocals from jerry. the 5/21 vegas show was also a complete gem, as were a few others. yes, it wasnt the best year, but it was the LAST year, and there WERE some grate shows, this being one of them. just my .02. happy turkey day. jake- 11/22/06

3 of the best shows I have heard in person. Didnt start following then until 91. If anyone is interested in trading some sets let me know. I have all 3 shows on Generation 1 from DAT.

I was so glad I decided to go to this run at the last minute. I was treated to some of the best music I ever heard the Dead play, plus there was a ton of room to dance in "da clubhouse" as we called it. We were running around going crazy. I remeber dancing around this security guard during Music and I thought he was gonna club me. It was cool though, those Mormons sure know how to party.

I actually love the Tennessee Jed at this show, and its one of my least favorite Dead songs. The Foolish Heart is also another all timer.

This show is hotttttt. I dont care if you hate on 95. Ill take any 95' show at its worst just to see Jerry. His soul lives on through this music and we all should be grateful to have access to these wonderful sounds. This show is exceptional!

Visions was worth the entire run...THe Best Dylan song ever sung by a band that played Dyaln better than anyone..except maybe The Band '72-'75

Really cool show and I agree with others who say that this is the best Visions of Johanna.
-Jerry (11/21/2011)


Compelled to add more some 7 years after my first review. LOL. At that time it was a show I had just recently stumbled on when a friend sent me a copy n said "check it out." I loved it right away hence those initial comments but in the years since I've come believe it's one of the best shows they EVER played. Yes THAT good. For starters it's HANDS DOWN (IMHO of course) the best recording of a GD concert I've ever heard. Sounds SO good it could be mistaken for studio work other than the occasional perfectly mixed crowd noise. As for the show itself Jerry's vocals are as crisp and clear as ever and his playing is spot on as well. Bob, Phil and the rest of the boys are dialed in too. The SLC opener is WONDERFULLY clever and well performed save a BRIEF moment where Bob n Jerr get off tempo for a few seconds. The FOTD was another great choice ("spent the night in Utah!!) and very well played. Wang Dang n Jed are solid. Broken Arrow is Phil st his latter day best. Thoughts on his vox aside he does a great job here n the rest of the band really follows along making this my favorite latter year Phil vocal. BTW is a nice uptempo version. Then we get a SMR that is just HAUNTINGLY good. The version exactly 3 mos later in Vegas (my last show) is great as are many others but just cant deny this is the single best. SO MUCH emotion and ALSO technically superior. Foolish Heart is one of the better versions and I Just Wanna Make Love to You was a shocker as it had only been played 3 times prior and not since '84. Then out of Space (a short but focussed Space I might add) we get another rarity with Visions. And as others have mentioned I too believe that's the best Visions. Heard all the other versions n none come close IMHO. And finally the show ends (after a standard Sugar Mags closer) with Liberty. Sure the tune had only been around for a few years but still yet ANOTHER best of version. Add it all up and we have an incredibly special show. Samba has never done anything for me but it doesn't zap the energy out of the show either. Anyway I could go on and on (already kinda have! LOL) but suffice to say this is a show ANY fan should listen to.

So I listened to this show on recommendations that this was a "gem" from '95. SLC and FOTD got me going... thinking there was something here, but the wang dang doodle is average, Tennessee is awful, and Jerry is nowhere to be found in Music Never Stopped. Pre - Drums is a sloppy mess and the Visions, while novel and 1st time in 9 yrs, isn't as good as 3/18, and nothing compared to 4/22/86. Sorry you guys, but I'm still glad my last show was in '92.

VISIONS SHELVED SENSE 1986
THAT WAS TRULY SUPRISING LYRICLY COMPLEX AND DAN JERRY NAILED IT. UNSHELVING UNBROKEN MAKES 95 QUITE AMAZING ACUALLY. TO HAVE IT END WITH GARCIA ON THE TIGER DURING THE FINAL BOX/TUNE (ROSEBUD WAS A NIGHTMARE SO HE GRABER IT AFTER THE 1ST ENCORE. THIS TO ME AMAZING THIS VISIONS FOR SHOW 3 SALT LAKE CITY GOD DAN SUCH A LONG TIME TO BE GONE AND A SHORT TIME TO BE HERE."

I Just Want To Make Love To You:
Can anyone think of another song played so sporadically, over such a long period of the band's career (first version 1966), sung by three different members of the band?? Pig in 1966, Brent in 1984, Jerry in 1995. Cool stuff
