great new years show! out of place franklins was well received and led to the wang dand doodle when a mystery man in a gold jacket came out from the speakers behind jerry and started to wail on sax! jerry seemed to nudge him out between himself and bob and he got louder and louder!there was no introduction and he kept blowing through west la (sick!!)when we all seemed to simultaneously realize it was clarence clemons! Truly a great surprise guest and jerry said, "we're gonna bring him back later!" and he did come back for the encores.

cold rain was hothothot. and bob did a fantastic masterpeice (i know, how odd that sounds) and jerry screamed in the final "when i paaaint my masterpeice!"
second set was good fun with bill grahm's sugar mag to open, a solid terrapin and dew and a sunshine daydream to set the set closed. yum

this was a great show to be at and is also a great show to have in your collection.

U Betcha!!!
This was an awesome show! We flew in from Tennessee for it. Clarence Clemmons wailed and really added a nice touch! Just an awesome experinece! Everyone was friendly and in good spirits.

I think it was the "Tom-Tom Club" that opened for them. I remember the guy announcing during one of their songs: "No more cocaine for the Tom Tom club!"

I though, well, that is a good thing that they are all sober and on the right road...

as far as i am concerned this is the best Moring Dew that they ever performed. yes there are some great ones but if its the way jerry sings it, the way its played, or the quality of the tape available its never %100

(i am going through setlist to listen to every dew available)

if people know of a better Dew please let me know

I was at this show, and I believe there were two opening acts (if I have the year right)...Tom Tom Club and something called Alexander's Hieroglyph, or something like that. I had never heard of either of them.

Good Morning Dew but not as great as MSG in Fall 87. Great show overall.

My first Dead show. Was familiar with their music already but, whew! when they played "the wheel" after a beautiful "terrapin" and drums, well let's just say I finally "got it." a wonderful night that i look back on with smiles smiles smiles.
