dylan & tom petty played great sets. This was a weird show.....but good!

1st time the boys ever played w/Dylan. We brought our 4month old daughter. Still dancing w/the baby! Great sets. Petty was good, too.

Couple memories...

Hot day. My bf sold bomb pops.

Found a friend down front, crazy crowded, couldn't stay long, but long enough to have him call out Me & My Uncle which Bobby did!

Historical significance aside, Bob Dylan is awful at this show. Jesus, his voice sounded like he chained smoked a pack before getting on stage and the All Over now is just horrendous. Jerry tries to drown out Dylan by singing louder, but it didn't help. I'm not a fan of Dylan in the first place, just his songs, when done by other people. I don't think i've ever once heard him sing remotely in tune... and that was when he was in his hayday. Seriously, the man wrote great songs, but couldn't do them justice with his voice.

The rest of the show was about average. You can hear the vibe immediately change when dylan gets on stage and it never recovers. The audiance actually cheered louder when bobby Introduced dylan as he walked off stage. Guess they were happy to have the regular dead back. Sorry to all those Dylan freaks out there, but i have absolutely no interest in listening to dylan whine through tunes. You either love him or hate him, and i sure as hell don't love him.

Don't Think Twice and Baby Blue. If you wanna hear Dylan play with the Dead when it sounded awesome, go for the '87 summer tour. Bob Dylan actually sounds good for most of those shows. And the fact that it was a whole set of the Dead being Dylan's back-up band, it works waaaaaayyyyyyy better. Plus, Jerry plays Pedal steel during a few tunes and it is beautiful.

Dylan also played on Little Red Rooster.

there are cassettes and probably cd's of Dylan and the dead, I own it. it will provide a primer on their musical association.

Dylan played on Red Rooster, Don't think twice, and Baby Blue. What I remember most about this show was Phil. He was loud and proud all night. Jerry was clearly not 100%, and left during the Playin' jam, and Bobby went into Desolation Row and played it entirely without Jerry, so Phil just took over the role as bassist and lead guitar....

Much much much much better Dylan and the Dead are the rehearsals from "June 1987". The whole shebang was on the Archive for many years but taken down. has reviews still. A portion is on there now as I cannot emphasize enough how much better the rehearsals are than anything they ever did on stage together. Seek it out if you never have.
