Alpine valley made millions off of dead shows from 1984 to 1987. every ticket sold had a $5 to $10 parking fee put on it although not everyone who had a ticket had a car. with all of this money they expanded the venue by building up the hill with tons of dirt, adding more beer gardens, expanding the pavillion seatsand parking areas, and cutting down some beautiful oak trees on the lawn so nobody had a blocked view. the work was not done yet for these four shows plus bob dylan and tom petty the night before and a skipped day in the middle. so most tour people were at alpine for five or six days straight. it was brutally hot, dry and windy, and there was dust everywhere fom the dirt parking lots. we referred to this year as the dust bowl shows (followed by the mudbowl shows in 1989)and i must say it was less that comfy camping this year. but heads will be heads and we made the best of it. long lines, and overcrowding was a problem also, and the first set was an hour late to start and only about 45 min. in length. after a real long set break the 2nd set was great, and everything clicked into place. my first foolish heart, and a smokin gdtrfb were the highlights for me. I would like a copy if anyone has one.

yeah ok then...People must have been like, "What the hell is this song!?" when The Dead opened the second set with Foolish Heart, seeing as how this was the first time it was played and the album, (built to last), which foolish heart is on, didnt come out till 1989.
- was really hot and dry. We got lucky and camped in the front yard of a guy who lived right next to the venue...under a giant oak tree...only shade for miles. The shows were fantastic, what I remember of them
