The bus came by and I got on.
Great visual show on the screens. Chakras opening up, notice people siting down and meditating all around.
Remembered reading about this interview with a guy about going to shows. He says, "I like to go to shows but I'm not one of those 'Ahhh.... deadheads' with their heads tilted back." Suddenly I notice, I have my head tilted back and I'm making that Ahhh.... sound and all around me I can hear others throughout the crowd equidistant from each other doing the same thing.

and you have a good vocabulary; another sign you're a GD lover!

Supposedly some songs from this show have made it's way on to View from The Vault - 6/16/90. Not sure if it's VHS or only on the DVD. Someone please report in.

hey craig....The filler on VFTV III is most of the first set of 10/3/87.

Hey Pocky Way
New Minglewood Blues
When I Paint My Masterpiece
West LA Fadeaway
My Brother Esau

missing Bird Song and Music....

btw the footage is extraordinary..
w/ jerry in great spirits. One of the hottest, funkiest Pocky Ways I've ever heard, and an Esau for the ages. This section alone is worth the price of the dvd...
Oh yeah I forgot..only the dvd contains this priceless gem...

I only wish they had released THIS in it's entirety. It's one smokin ass show....
oh well...waht are ya gonna do.. ya know....

Hope this helps.


This was a very WEAK Dead show. I went on stage went I was tripping and was escorted, harassed, and busted for dope slingin' after this incident. I am 17 now

Nick why do I have the feeling that you were definitely not trippin' and smoking weed considering you were probably 2 or 3 years old at the time ...

This show holds a very special place in my heart. I was 17 at the time of the show, and I went with my best friend from high school. We were seniors and planned on going to Berkeley together the next year. We had a great time at the shows, but unfortunately he died in a car crash a month later. We had gone to our first show together, this being his last. I just feel so grateful to have shared this beautiful show with such a beautiful soul. I am very fortunate to have a copy of VFTV III. Every time I watch the DVD I experience first hand my friends spirit living within me. Such a gift.

This is the last My Brother Esau they ever did. I read in an interview that Bobby never really liked the song ... he felt the message it was trying to convey was never able to come across in the song. Guess Esau was an experiment that never really caught on.

Hey Pocky Way, New Minglewood Blues, Candyman, When I Paint My Masterpiece, West LA Fadeaway, and My Brother Esau are included on the officially released DVD "View From The Vault III."

Maggie's Farm is included on the officially released CD "Postcards Of The Hanging."

I attended 100's of Dead shows from the mid-60's on and I'm sorry to say that by this time the Dead were a mere shell of their former selves. Sad and almost painful to watch. The sound was weak, the band was weak, the whole experience was weak. I truly feel sorry for the younger Deadheads whose only experience with live Dead shows is from the 80's and 90's. A band 'going through the motions', tired from years of endless repetition and depleted by medicinal excess. It almost seemed like they were playing in slow-motion, certainly without much emotion. Shoreline was always a crappy place to see a band like the Dead anyway, especially after having seen them in places like Winterland, Family Dog, Avalon Ballroom, Fillmore, ect. The plastic atmosphere of Shoreline only added to the sadness of it all. Sorry, but there's not much I can do to spin fond recollections of this show.

Grateful Dave is another human saying his youth was better.

What I witnessed 88-91 changed my life, 10 31 91 the high point of a band that has the IT factor

-Grateful Dave (02/04/2011)

What I witnessed and experienced from 87 to 92 cosmically altered my life for the better. '73 was epic, also a fan of the Travis Bean era, but the latter years of the Dead were akin to a cold engine that just needed to be warmed up and when revved they could cook. The Bird Song from this show is a prime example.

I just watched this whole show on YouTube, sitting 2 feet away from my 80 inch screen. Just like being there, except no driving, parking, and waiting in line - oh and Jerry and Brent are still alive. What's not to like? On this day "Oct 3, 1987 A march by Tibetans turned violent as the demonstrators, calling for Tibetan independence, threw stones at the police in Lhasa" As I write this President Trump has sent troops to shoot immigrants who throw stones.

i think we forgot that between candyman & masterpiece, the addams family theme was sung......this was only one of three & all in 1987...

IKO IKO on & on ...

After the "It's T for Timbuktu" lyric, Bob sings "It's T right here wherever we are, a garbage heap"...
