This was one of my all time favorite shows of all time! It's hard to explain! A very Dead Thing.

got to the show...somehow
hung out with a friend's girlfriend...
set up my tape deck
the crowd is swarming
everything is getting feverpitched!!!!

then...the opening notes to Aiko begin and
the tape deck explodes...batteries flying..

but what a great show!!!
What a great show!!! I love the relaxxxxed feel of the entire show.

Great Time!
I did manage to get the tape deck functioning...lots of cowd nice...including a gut who had a cardboard beer box over his head - everytime he twisted the box on his head...he would whooooo! whoooo! like a choo-chootrain! tthat stuff could be annoying...but he choo-chooed at all the intense parts....right where they belonged!

If anyone has a good recording of this show, please let me know!

Gratefuly Yours,

Go figure! The night before was imo the single worst show I ever saw: decent set list, but a terribly tired lackluster performance all around. This night, they opened with Iko when it was still pretty much a rarity, and proceeded to tear the place down. Although the set list may look "average", it worked great and the band was absolutely ON FIRE. The previous reviewer is right; very much a "Dead" thing, and it was the best show I ever saw...

Can never forget this one. The sound of Gracia's axe on Bird Sond was unreal. Second set brought me to my knees.

This was my first of many Dead shows. I was 15 years old, and still in the suburban "whose Mom is gonna pick us up?" world.

I wish I knew then what I know now, because listening to tapes of this show makes me regret what I "missed" due to lack of understanding of the boys at the time.

My first show....i was 16. It's all my older bro's fault?!?!?! I remember getting home that night and teaching myself Tennessee Jed on the guitar. And, I remember Weir's guitar strap bustin' during Other One, I beleieve. Anyway, 1st of many shows to come.

was at this show. very solid but bird song breaks on through to other side. best, my fave version. jerry's solo is tight and concise and explodes into an incredible climax.

Bob and Jerry on Letterman the night after this show.
-Anonymous (03/07/2013)

In an interview before the '81 St. Paul show, the reporter asked Jerry if Man Smart-Women Smarter was the english version of Iko Iko. Jerry just chuckled and hit a doubie. But i gotta say, tis two very similiar songs. Made the show pretty damn interesting to say the least. Not one of the best, but certainly a standout.

Been awhile...

Echoing comments on Birdsong.
C.C. Rider-check out Brent's Hammond harmonies & fat Bobby slide.

Deal-Rockin version folks. Check this 1 out


Sugaree-"Spantastic" Unbelievable Jerry jams. Evolving never ending solid riffs...Could be best version...

Estimated. Funny Bobby equip banter. Great raspy Brent on chorus. Slightly cosmic...the boys were on the precipice but peeled off shortly & folded into jamming solo seque》

UJB- Fun rendition. solid harmonies/Jerry solos you can "hear" all of them smilingly singing before DRUMS,
