Baba Olatunji opened. The vibe was still in the air as the band opened with Touch of Grey>Scarlet Begonias. Also, the first of two High Times played at the Garden on this run of 5 shows.

The opening of this is fabulous. Scarlet is awesome. Thanks Sirius,

Just heard part of this on XM (He's Gone, drums/space Truckin, Wharf)
Jerry's voice sounds pitiful - like he's 80 yrs old...

Great show, excellent vibe in the Garden this run. This night had the best wharf rat solo you'll ever hear and then two nights later the sickest morning dew. Jerry literally howling during some of these songs, especially He's gone

My girlfriend and I had tickets to all of the shows for the MSG run. On this night, we were originally going to go into the city and sell our tickets for what we paid for them. We were completely wiped out from the show the niught before and wanted to save our energy for the rest of th the shows On the way in, I got sideswiped by a PA (Port Authority Bus) going into the Lincoln Tunnel (it was rush hour). At that point, all pissed off and everything else I decided that I needed to see this show. On our way in, we always asked each oher what song we would like to hear that night. My girlfriend almost always said Jack Straw, sicne that is her favorite. This night, I said I wanted to hear a Scarlet, just Scarlet, not Scarlet-Fire. Well I got my scarlet almost right away. For me, that show ended up beign just great, to this day i am happy now that I got hit by a bus, I am sure there are very few people that can say that. Miss you Jerry.

Love the hight time tip off. "The first one i saw"
Jerry had every intention of playing this one twice in MSG this run. This version is WAY better than the one a few nights later.

If you listen close right before "High Time" you can hear a "Duprees" tease. I missed the MSG shows but saw the Philly shows on this tour. You could tell they were really picking back up; I saw Meadowlands in late 85 and when I compare it (though I didn't know it then) you could kind of see they were close to the trough. But hey, any night at a Dead show is better than just about any night somewhere else! Lucky to say I saw a lot of great shows from 85-93.
