I was reading an excerpt from Steve Parish's book "Home Before Daylight" and he talks about an incident from this show. Steve, Garcia and some other people were hanging out backstage before hand and one of the dudes hanging with them proceeded to produce a bunch of pills. Garcia jumped up and grab them and threw about three into his mouth. Parish thought he was messing around being the jokester Garcia was, but Jer swallowed the pills. Well the pills happened to be a Valium like downer. I guess He went out on stage and was all F#!cked up. They had to slap him silly to get him to come out of it at setbreak. Probably gave him a bunch of Coke. Anyway that's the story and I guess the show kind of speaks for this story. It's really not that good of a show at all.

yeah, that's a pretty cool book

Dont' Ease Me In-last 8/6/74

Wow, poor jerry. He sounds like his whole world is melting around him.

Jerry is allergic to Valium, at least according to mountain girl. So he would have been feelin none too good.
-Murphy (04/28/2013)

this has to be the best They Love Each Other, ever
Jerry's solo is incredible
I challenge anyone to find a better one
don't get me wrong,
9/30/81 and
8/8/82 are excellent but something about this one rocks my world
9/2/79 are excellent too, dont get me wrong
give this a listen and see what i mean

Jack-A-Roe is also most excellent
kind of partial to the acoustic versions but this solo has a double personality quality that at this moment in time is my number 1 version

I was there Jerry had to be carried out to start the second set. He was totally puched up.
