Best show of 82'

now i've done it. A typo. Best of 82 though is 7.31. Just a little ol' opinion.

Incredible show. 13 tunes in 1st set, awesome second set, and beautiful encores. Weir's voice is almost totally shot by end of OMSN, and then Garcia comes back with Brokedown.

My second show. What a blast. My highlights, China/Rider/Promised Land set closer. The best was after drums Uncle Johns comes out of no where and just keeps picking up steam and then explodes. Back into Playin and a ripping Sugar Mag. Great double encore. The boys loved Maine!

What an incredible show. Best concert of the Dead or any other bank I ever saw. I don't udnerstand why Dick's Picks or someone else hasn't turned this into a CD for sale. They were on fire that night and the list is ridiculous. And Levon Helm lead off for them, which was pretty incredible in it's own right.

IF YOU HAVE THIS SHOW I WILL TRADE YOU THREE OF MY SHOWS FOR IT!!!! let me know please please please! i want a coppy now!

One of the greatest shows i have ever been to a superb uncle john, light show unbelievable, great atmosphere

I was 18 years old, had seen 3 shows that summer; Portland,ME (May), Portland,OR, (June-St. Helens) and Lewiston, ME. I had an absolutly splendid day on the campus with everyone and the "boys". I saw heard and experienced such I couldn't have believed. In a different forum I can be coaxed to tell the details.The best way I know how to state it; as Brokendown was winding out I was on my knees balling my eyes out with tears of shear joy. I looked to my side and a beautiful tall blonde goddess saw me and gave back a simple knowing smile. Whew!

PS Audience tapes are around keep looking

Take a step back before FOTD. Stranger and Far From Me are both only six months old and the 6th of 272 performances for Little Red Rooster and Althea in the 2nd. for this expansive first set indeed SMcConnell.

But this show continues it's prowess with s 2nd set Shakedown opener. However, the wonderful Playin' in the John suite, not performed since 6.30.74 and never again! Fall/Winter 73 was the start but i'm glad they dusted off those rusty strings one more time.

E: Brokedown, Jerry to polish off Bobby's cracked Saturday Night voice.

2nd or 3rd show but the first experiance.
This show was the springboard for the next
250+ shows.So many thoughts...anyone remember the way the crowd looked during
Brokedown? Fare thee well indeed.

Wicked show...any Playin' that doesn't feature Donna's sperm-curdling wails is extra-good...sorry Donna

1st show and it was a last minute thing, totally unexpected. So remembers the fire truck?
I got on the bus that day, that's when it all began. Mind blown. We didn't see such culture up in Maine very often ;)

The sunset was peaking at exactly the same time I was...just as the boys swung in to China Cat with the sun liquifying behind the stage, melting everything with it....
-Skeeter (01/01/2016)

Bit of a stumbling intro to Stranger, which is odd because they subsequently perfected it to the point of using it as a show opener very often. One of the better renditions of "Take a Step Back" shortly afterwards.
-Just Exactly Perfect Band (03/03/2016)

Longest 1st set I ever saw... :)

Sophomore year Providence College just starts. Murph, Robby B, Jay? Leo? we packed i think 5 of us into a mid- 70's Mercury monster-beast with a smashed front end. Golf-ball sized lump of hash created some memory issues. 'Course we had a great time, some how safely made the return trip to PC, wish to the Lord i could remember more. Good thing i drove, was too messed up to walk. Peace. 9-7-21
