My first Dead show and what a great introduction! The Birdsong is one of the best ever and the "Greatest Hits" style second set was perfect for a first-timer, especially the effect of a live Terrapin! I remember being floored by the light show most of all.

During Sugar Mags, Bobby ran back and forth across the stage, stopping at each end to cheerlead the crowd. I also remember that during the first set he came into let it grow too early, which like so many screwups, sounded pretty cool.

Stella Blue was off the charts that night. After Jerry dusted off his rusty strings, he let them shine in a way that defied time and space. You've got to hear it to believe it.

The energy was off the charts as they had just busted out Box of Rain the night before. There was more day-glo bouncing around than ever and a few other effects influencing the crowd's mood. We were hoping for a Lazy Lightning out of supplication....A very solid second set. Stella was so stellar and Bobby did run the stage during Sugar Mags. At one point he even climbed up on a stack of speakers right in front of us. The boys were having a good time and the sound comes through.

Sorry this is not one of the best bird Songs ever, I saw at least 15 or 20 better than this. The best was Cole Field House '81. This one was good - don't spoil it with silly, false hype.

Good night here, typical strong Hampton Terrapin. The last good Tour until Spring '90 and that was about it.

"Sugar Mags"? Really? is that what the internet generation calls it? Us Heads never - once - called it that.
