This is the best show in the world.

It ain't me guys.

This show smokes !!
Above average for a kick ass year to begin with!!

1st set was very tight. Highlites were Peggy O, 1st time Picasso, and a sweet bird song!

2nd set was INSANE!! => Crazy Fingers> Playin' in the Band> Uncle John's Band> Playin' in the Band> Terrapin Station> EPIC!!!!

Need A Miracle> Standing On The Moon
Sugar Magnolia> Touch of Grey > Need I say more!!!

Maybe the best 2nd set in 10 years
*Damn...I need a drink now!!!*


Picasso Moon has to be the worst song I've ever heard (or at least tied w Victim or the Crime). How did they not realize what a piece of *#@^ it was and put thing in the trash

If I'm not mistaken we had a frat-boy get on stage and give Jerry a dancin' thumbs up to his face from about three feet and was ushered off.

Maybe someone else remembers the cheech and chong 2 ounce doobie on the audience left walkway area during intermission. I remember throngs of people shouting "send it this way" from every direction... As intermission ended, i hit the fattest roach id ever seen as it happend to come my way. By then It was about 1 1/2 inch long and 1 1/2 inch wide. My first quinn. What a goood time!

After a listen, this is a great played laid back show of the late 80's. Not high energy like a hampton show, but an "i caught a few waves earlier today" kind of jam. Very west coast. Very crisp and clean. Precise.
We make wrinkles, advertize them as creases. Lol. My 12th show.

compare 2nd set of this show to 07-02-1988, Oxford Plains Speedway, ME. Identical all the way to The Wheel. I'm partial to Oxford Plains because I was there but I remember thinking that any combo of Playin'/Uncle John's is the Socratic ideal of a Grateful Dead set 2. Also i was frying pretty hard.

A post-space five pack is always tasty and rare. These days, especially in the Dead and Co era, I am used to getting 3 full songs at most post space. To see this setlist is a reminder of GD glory...Sugar Mag usually signals the end of the main set, but I can only imagine the delight the heads felt when the opening chords of Touch rang down out of Sugar instead of the traditional Sunshine Day Dream ..

Long live the greatest band in the land!!
