This is not a comment on the set, but a memory of the event. At the time I used to distribute underground magazines such as Schoolkids' Oz and International Times throughout northern England. One magazine, Grass Eye, was based in Manchester, not far from the venue for this festival. I asked if they had anything about the Dead lined up in the issue that we intended to sell at the show. They hadn't, so I volunteered to write a cover feature extolling their virtues. No doubt it was complete rubbish, but it did help us sell a lot of magazines. We hired a lorry for the occasion, which I drove up from London, full of Oz, I.T., Raul Vaneigem's Situationist Manifesto, Chairman Mao's Little Red Book, and a lot of waffle about the Grateful Dead! We picked up hitchers all along the motorway -- there must have been 20 people in the back of the truck by the time we arrived. If I remember rightly, the gig also featured Free and Mungo Jerry, who launched In The Summertime on the back of this show. The Dead were utterly brilliant, although I must confess I can't remember the music at all. If anyone knows where to get a recording, that would be appreciated!

I hadn't heard much Grateful Dead up to that time, but there was a festival and they were going to play on my eighteenth birthday. Took to many chemicals, but thorougly enjoyed the set. My most vivid memory is the music pausing slightly and for the first time i heard ring out....."One man gathers, what another man spills" Magic.

Just to know that "Dark Star" and "War Pigs" were played on the same stage on the same day, 17 years to the day I was born is insane!

I mean, "War Pigs" was most likely played.

I'm doing a Murphy, listening to all of the Dead shows chronologically but at a much slower pace (started in 2015). At this rate, I'll be "Dead" before I finish but what the hell. 70 such an interesting year.

There's this new film you can see on YouTube of the Dead in England. Almost 2 hours long. Basically a camera crew just follows them around, hanging out, being interviewed - even Pig gets interviewed which is really rare.

In one scene you can see them hanging out at the festival and Ozzy Osbourne briefly appears.

Glad to hear someone was inspired to go through all the deadís live shows from my comments. It is definitely a journey worth taking in my opinion. Although, in hindsight, I think wharfratg is doing it the right way. I kinda fiended a bit too hard and missed some really beautiful moments just trying to get through. But I would never regret it. Cause it really was one hell of a good trip. And it managed to end right as 2015 was getting underway, so you can bet your ass I was at fare thee well. Really put a magical exclamation point on the journey for me.

Whatfratg - I wish wish you happy trails brotha. I think youíll find plenty of diamonds in the rough if youíre willing to give every show a chance.
