The Terrapin was off the hook.

saw dark star orchestra perform this show.

my first show..had a little run in with the law outside the theater. Got in just as jack Straw was closing. Second set was kinda weak. I had to leave before the encore of Brokedown palace but i am glad i ended hearing Not fade Away. Loud drums.

I thought the roof was going to come off during Terripin Station. Really good show and set of shows.

intense jam between playin and terrapin caused me to black out onto the hampton floor. awoke to lots of strange faces and beautiful lady with a fan.

Anyone who says THIS second set was "kinda weak" doesn't know what they're talking about. I was there; the X-factor was at an all time high!

I was at this show and the Terrapin was amazing. Listening to the tape gives me goosebumps. Great concert.

A GREAT 3 night run

2nd set "weak"??? By far the best 2nd set I've ever seen, for the Terrapin Station alone.

Does anyone have a radio broadcast recording of this show? I swear I used to. And the dj actually says 87 in the begining and later says it's 89. But this setlist is definitely the show I used to have.

Best Terrapin ever. Best night of a Great 3 night run.I can't see how anybody could say 2nd set was weak.

All three nights were fucking fantastic. Jerry's first 3 shows back east after almost dying the summer beforehand. There was an energy beyond description those 3 nights.

This might be the best set of audience tapes I made recording over 100 shows.

I can’t think of a bad Hampton show of the 12 shows I attended (84-88) there. Timing wasn’t too great moving west in Oct 89. Ooops. My favorite Hampton moment 3/20/86 Box of Rain ...of course. Favorite show. Toss up...but 3/23/87 and 3/27/88 come to mind.
Then there are my ‘Formerly the Warlocks’ shows on tape.. 3 weeks after moving to Oregon. Still content w the Box of Rain return.
Best indoor east coast venue in my experience, and a top 10 overall indoor. Prob top 5. One just didn’t get the consistent high energy (not to mention Jerry’s thumbs up to Hampton).shows like you did at Hampton. Thinking back to the Greek, Red Rocks, MSG, and Kaiser, Hampton definitely top 5 in or outdoor.

Yes! A ridiculously strong Terrapin. These were my first shows and while I already liked the Dead and was intrigued by their mystique it was this Terrapin that turned me into a deadhead.

Jerry gets pulled over for going 70mph in a 30mph twice at the beginning of Not Fade. East coast intensity must have been great for the boys to experience. Touch in Hartford a week or so later was the peak
