I went to the show with a girl I was madly in lust with. We set up our tent, broke out our provisions and started socializing. She thought I was too flirty with another girl, so she dragged me back into the tent and forced herself on me. Best sex I ever had. While we were going at it people were walking by. The tent was not sound proof and She made a point of being as loud and lewd as possible.She dumped me as soon as we got back to San Fran...Oh, well.


What a trippin' weekend!!! Let out of Reno with a cute little blonde...hooked up with another cute little blonde and the 3 of us triped hard and heavey. Had to stay and extra day just to come down. We sold our tickets for the second show for food and gas money but ended up taping it from the low frequncey broadcast and is still one of my favorite tapes to date.
This was also the last of a string of concerts called 'Mountain Aire' that ran for 10 years at Angels Camp!
What a way to end it!!!!

Well, um, a couple of comments on the show (not that the other stuff isn't interesting). During the opener, a couple of people parachuted down behind the stage, to much cheering. Garcia seemed to think the cheers were for him, and he turned it up a notch. Prior to the Dead, Santana had put on a normal killer show, during which Carlos had quoted the old "School Girl" riff. The Dead brought him back out to play it for real with them at the end of the first set. (I think he came out the next day for the end of the 1st set as well). Great jamming between Jerry and Carlos.

Right before the show there was an airshow with old WWII biplanes mock dogfighting. I brought along one of my best buddies and my girlfriend at the time. Just as we were walking up to the show and coming on to the trip, the dogfights began. When the planes flew by each other, it created a beautiful arc that sounded intense. The only thing I could say was, "smooth." That pretty much summed up the whole show. Santana was great, the Dead of course.....

Sadly, I missed this concert, having been born the day before (in-utero recovery is a bitch!), but I've very happy to see this concert featured the re-appearance (after 17 years!) of "Good Morning Little School Girl"...GD lost a lot of "grit" with the passing of Pigpen, and this song a great example.

Thatís a great story Mike, starting to trip watching dogfights is an entrance to a GD show that would be hard to top. Super solid 80ís show from start to US Blues finish, my oh my! Always better when my brother Esau showed up. Pretty amazing setlist, definitely worth checking out young at hearts! Peace
