got there late, missed the music>sugaree>music, damn. great 2nd set, wicked playin jam, spooky space, jerry was scarin' me, but the wheel brought me back in kindly. not crowded at all, more good old days

holy smokin opener batman!! music>sugaree>music!! Wow!!
the morning dew is explosive!!

Great China>Rider transition. Excellent Let it Grow to close the first set. The "Dew" is majestic.

Dick's Picks 32

The Wheel is killer. Check it out for sure. The morning dew is also killer. Check it out for sure. The Music > Sugaree > Music is really killer. Check it out for sure!

Killer show for the most part, although Jerry sounded sick as hell during Ship O' Fools.

BIODTL-7 beats prior to first lyric
OnTheRoad Again-6th to last time played
LetItGrow -that's what Jerry's solo did

Space>Wheel- I love it i love it I love Wheel out of space.
Morning Dew-forgetable.

Just heard the dicks picks of this - a pretty good show indeed. The sugaree is probably the best I've heard - if you're used to '72 and '73 when jamming on that one wasn't that great, check this sugaree out because jerry really goes places with it. CC Rider and especially Let it Grow are other 1st set highlights (also, always good to hear a must've been the rose). 2nd set has a nice china-rider, a fun man/woman, decent ship of fools, really nice jamming on playing in the band ('bout ten minutes or so but really rocking psychedelia), always love the wheel, playin' reprise nothing special, then good show closers with Morning Dew>Saturday night. It's a complete show on the dicks picks... except for US Blues... woulda liked to hear that one.

actually U.S. Blues IS on the dick's picks, they just moved it from "encore" to first song of second set. why i don't know, but it's there. and sounds sweeeet.

Encore going 1st song of 1st set. That's the way analog tapes always use to be, left over filler space. Perhaps to keep with the theme of tapers...or not.

Was there, my second dead concert, my future wife's first. Cruised in and before we got out of the car we were offered acid via GD steal your face paper. Fired up the grill, brats etc.. hey we are from WI. Then headed in with a gallon jug of brandy old fashion, 1 quart brandy, three parts 7 up. Great show, remember during Surgaree someone down around the right side of the stage, dancing naked, security chasing after him and trying to cover him up with a blanket. Dance of the dead LOL.

great time at this show, Alpine Valley is a great outdoor venue. the vibes were filled with anticipation as the boys stepped out and opened with music - sugar - music//////////wow. We danced the night away. The wheel was epic and so was morning dew (edgy) but what was so cool sending us on our way a rousing us blues!!! what a night what a band buy dicks picks 32.

My first show and what a first show. My veteran deadhead friend turned to me after Music>Sugaree>Music and said, you don't even know what you're seeing. He was right, but I often brag about it now.

China>Rider(slight groovy jam prior to Rider lyrics) Mellower tempo but fantastic early 70's versions tints playing all around. Brent carnival keys starts off strong but melds perfectly with Jerry & Bobby as the song moves into the lyrics.

This was the second of 16 times I saw a Dead show at Alpine, my all time favorite venue. Itís also my favorite show I saw there. Great set list and plenty of top notch Dead.

Listening to this show right now, and it is taking me back to my times at Alpine Valley. This show was a little before I got on the bus, but I travelled to Alpine for all the shows in the late 80's (87-89). Fantastic venue and great memories. The parking lot scene was as crazy as it was humungous. In later years I realized that there was a farmer who owned a field just in front of the Alpine Valley property, and for $10 he would let you park and camp for the entire series of shows. It was a little more relaxing there, and it being private property, there were no authorities anywhere around. Hmmmm... if I could only go back in time and experience those summer adventures of my youth again.
