when they played terrapin i turned to my friend and said, "they're playing dark star tomorrow for sure."

very nice prelude to nye

i always read in these comments how some guy said, "I wore out my tape of such-and-such show" yeah yeah yeah...but...uhm i wore out the second set of this show.

the jack straw opener was sooo hot and unexpected and the china rider that came in without a break was so incredibly hot..esp the jam in transition where jerry's notes are tearing across the air...the estimated started with a 10 second pause and it was loud and fat and so much fun...i read an interview in rolling stone in the fall of 1989 and one thing he said was how more fun playing estimated shit!! bob screams "My words fill the sky with flame!" and the place didnt need to erupt..we were already there...sweet jesus, what a show. the O1 was solid and the rest was coming down a very very tall mountain...

first set was cool with the good lovin in a weird spot

Don't be afraid during drums with Airto's just your ego dieing.

Bertha -> Good Lovin' -> Sugaree
Only the second of two times this monstrous combo is played. The first being 5.28.77

So sweet.

What a phenomenal show. The resurrection of the Hartford '77 show opener was fire. The whole show had me in a state of pure bliss. The people in attendance that night must have still been dancin' all the way home. The post drums brings the show back to earth, if that was even possible, with a beautiful SOTM -> OMSN. They definitely got a big boost from their day of rest between the first two nights and this one. Couldn't ask for a better show to listen to a sunrise on a chilly spring morning.

I became a Deadhead at this show. It began with Music Never Stopped and the Terrapin Station, especially early during A Lady with a Fan part. It was over for me. I went on to see 37 more shows in over 10 states until Jerry left us August '95. I was a little late getting on the bus, but at least I didn't miss it entirely.

Quite possibly one of the finest Estimated Prophets ever sang.

Bobby's voice is slightly rough, but he sings this particular version of my favorite GD song with tremendous phrasing, with a combination of tender care and vengeance. It is almost sing-songy. Absolutely stunning.

They always say that the night before NYE is the best show...this is truly an example of this.

God Bless this Band.
