Bob Dylan warmed up for the Dead, and then joined them on stage for the entire third set. Monumental! I bought a very cool clay drum at the market outside, and still play it to this day.

YOu can never get enough Dead and Dylan. The shows were unbelievable. Highway 61 and Slow Train were my favs.

This show along with 7.26.87 released as "View from the Vault IV" However set 3 omitted from both?

wow! The almighty came down from heaven once again to play some music!


They played a killer Jack Straw that day, it's my favorite version of it. The jam in between "Ain't no bed can't give us rest now, we'll keep him on the run" and "Jack Straw from Wichita..." is one of the best I've heard. Brent is going crazy on the keys and it's really rockin. Other highlights include great versions of Cassidy, Uncle John's Band, Dear Mr. Fantasy, and Bertha. There's some great jamming during Playin' going into drums as well. They were sure on that day; I highly recommend the DVD.

Officially released on DVD as "View From The Vault IV."

jerry's not even close on his opening verse of Jackstraw--"gotta board at tulsa, right outside the fence!"

dylan would not authorize the release of any video footage of himself during that period. maybe he will change his mind in the years to come!

Sweet late set Bertha with mult bombs being dropped...

My recollection is that my friend Chris went out to the concession stand to get his wife a drink; he was gone a while. When he got back and asked what he'd missed, I said "Dude, Jerry just busted out the pedal steel and backed up Dylan on I'll Be Your Baby Tonight!"

Boy, was he pissed. Great show.

It was a great show indeed...
I was there with my housemates from the Arch St. Zoo (Berkeley).We we're all flying high. Bill Graham came out before the 3rd set and announced, "The show won't be over until after midnight, so BART will be closed. If you came here by BART, then go meet or make some friends and get a ride home"... Classic Uncle Bobo... potentially stuck in the gnarliest area of Oakland at 1:00 AM...

During the drums I walked the bases, when I got to home plate I jumped up and came down on the pad and the drums STOPPED.
I went back to my seats at the top of the stadium and brought everyone I knew that I ran into to the top for some altitude ajustments with the Monster B.
I had this whole show on tape
Dylan included.
Dylan did not play anything before the Dead sets and was backed by the Dead for his set
Awesome Show

Got there a little late since we had to go up to Berkeley to pick Janet up, and then back down to the Coliseum. It was Dave Hitz before his future Gazillionairedom; Bill Kolb still obscure - perhaps like Van Gogh, his fame will be posthumous - Long Live the ArtiCoaster!; David Eliott, and Janet, and me, at the wheel. (Yes, both me 'n Neal Cassidy used to drive Chloe Scott around. It's true!)

I realized only too late that I had still had on my sunglasses in the rush when got out of the car, and had left my regular glasses. I remember thinking it's all in the ears and the body anyway at a Dead show, as we happily entered to My Brother Esau.

I remember calling loudly for Dave, "Hitz!, Hitz!", and the interest that aroused in the people around me...

Great show, and these memories preciously etched in my brain for another decade or three, I hope :-) Being able to go to more Dead shows, being closer to Janet, and being able to work with the likes of Hitz, Kolb, and Elliott at MIPS - these were the reasons I'd moved back to the Bay Area, and that evening fused all three.

I love knowing that it's there.

Thanks for everyone else's memories and thoughts, which also make it real.
