Best Aud recording possible. Great highlight of that 79-81 era. Brent's first shows with the band. Band focussed on playing VERY well.

video of show?

This was my first show. I was 17 and I felt like I had died and gone to heaven. My memory of that night is pretty foggy but I do remember Mickey coming on stage and announcing that they couldn't do an encore because Brent wasn't feeling well. I also thought for sure that at one point Jerry played the pedal steel guitar but that may have been an hallucination.

It was actually a crappy little hockey rink with horrible accoustics.

Yes, HowFast, it was. And a lot of people had a great time that night in that crappy little hockey rink.

This was my first Dead show too. I went right up front when they played the Stones Its All Over Now and loved it. Stayed there the rest of the show. The Hells Angels were there and for me it was a great show. I only knew Shakedown Street and Good Lovin but I knew the boys were awesome.
ULowell got a few cool bands to play but this was the best.

Not a great show. Crappy suburban hockey rink. Sort of a disconnected show. The boys seemed like they were glad to get out of there. I recall seeing Jerry leaving with a briefcase looking like a strung out Exec.

It was a crappy hockey rink. I remember almost being trampled by the crowd entering - a bit scary. But we did survive and had a great time!
