My very first Dead concert. a Beautiful spring day, sunny, warm, not too hot. Jerry played (mostly pedal steel guitar) for 2 hours with the New Riders of the Purple Sage for the opening act, then another 4 hours with the Dead. Awesome show!!! One of the best i've ever seen !

I went to DC to protest the war and missed this event in my home town area
but saw Jerry playing at the base of the washington monument late at night
about this time can anybody else confirm this too

Joe speaks the truth. Great show along with Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Hot Tuna, Beach Boys I think. Maybe Mountain also.

Was at this show - and a great one it was! Mountain did play this show. Watched part of the Dead set, and talked with someone for a short while, both of us commenting about how great the Dead were playing - turns out the guy was Felix Papillardi of Mountain - shaggy sheep vest and all ...

A correction to Pat. The linup that day was: Brown dote acid followed by the bands, NRPS, Grateful Dead, Paul Butterfield Blue B.B., Beach Boys(who commented that day that they had waited 4 years to play with the Dead) and Mountain. One of the best shows ever. But no Hot Tuna.

So right. Hot Tuna played the venue (Joe College Day) the following year. Day sets in Wade Stadium. Night in Cameron Indoor (think Blue Devil basketball). Remember Taj Mahal as well. Others fuzzy. Also bumped into Papillardi.

I think my dad was at this show back in the day. He went to Duke at the time and recalls seeing the band with Pigpen in the lineup. Does anyone know if there is a recording of this show either through a streaming service or a live release?

As a Duke undergrad and yearbook staff photographer at the time, I was at this show with a "backstage" pass. An oscilloscope for monitoring the PA attracted my attention - I turned a knob and the trace went nuts! Fortunately it neither affected the sound nor attracted Security's attention to me. I ducked outta there post-haste! Embarrassingly, I was more interested in Mountain's set than GD's.
