Black Muddy River-less than a year old and already a classic. One of the few songs that got better as his voice aged, IMHO.

David Hidalgo of Los Lobos played on W.LA Fadeaway. TWO fat men, rocking for the price of one! This was one of my best weekends ever...

Following the encore, the video for Touch of Grey was filmed. Skeletons and all. As I recall, it was after midnight, temperatures were dropping and by the time the filming was over, I was freezing, exhausted and my friends and I couldn't find our car, lost somewhere in the hills around the Laguna Seca Raceway. "Then one day near Salinas, lord..." I have a vague recollection of finding the car and rolling back toward SF as the sun began to rise.

... the Laguna Seca shows on May 9 & 10, 1987 & even more Heavenly were the July 29, 30, 31 1988 shows. Living in the sand dunes for both tours was just plain like Jeery says >>> Seldom turns out the way it does in the song ... Once in a while you get shown the light In the strangest/greatest of places if you look at it right... Right Now!

& the music has NEVER Stopped since....
and How the Grateful Dead changed my life, so so so so so much 4 the better.....beginning with show #1 - 3/13/1981 Utica NY.

This show just has the feels of a solid rock 'n roll show. Solid all around. The ending trio of Bobby songs was surprising and fun. Definitely a good listen.
