Arrived without tickets and ended up sitting 3rd row. Great show and phenominal Terrapin.

my first the blue seats...i can't remember shit, but this setlist jars some images.

Excellent first set. Jerry performs Candyman and Row Jimmy with juicy licks and great voice. Lots of old and new in this one. Dupree's back from 4 year retirement, Throwing Stones 3rd/266. 2nd set continues to amaze. Spanish Jam a regular now back from 74 and the Truckin>T01>Stella>Sugar is a great combo. Ends with the 3rd/213 Touch of Grey. Garden is always treated to the old and new mixed up mighty fine!

My only show at the Garden and hands down the best show i ever saw. Heard it again the other day at the Archive and it just confirmed what I already knew!

I scalped tickets for this show outside the Garden with my friend Mark for $20... It was pouring rain that night... Went into the Garden and the Dead did not disappoint. Heard Touch of Grey, Throwin" Stones and Day Job, for the first time, in addition to favorites Scarlet>Fire. Also a Duprees in the first set which was a rarity,...

This was a grate show, I never saw a bad show at MSG, and I've seen 46 of the 52 played there... Dupree's Diamond Blues was a treat... they played Throwing Stones both nights. It was during this 2 night run in NYC that I knew someday I would make my home in NYC....been here for 38 years now, love it!

I really like the El Paso followed by Dupree's Diamond Blues. It's like a mini theme in the middle of the set. Two story songs about men being awful because of love or lust. By the end of Dupree's, the body count is four. You've got the wild young cowboy who is killed by our narrator over the love of the Mexican maiden Felina. And our narrator himself also ends up dead when he returns to the scene of the crime. Then you've got the jewelry man who is killed by Dupree for a thousand dollar shiny diamond ring that his baby wanted and of course Dupree gets the death penalty for it. Same old story I know it's been told.
