102 degrees at show-time. Lots of people freaking out. Well played, compact second set.

a very fun show

I was front and center that day. Beautiful desert day, but the band did not play up to the high quality of the set list.

Let's face it, the best performances were mid 70s through late 70s.

You forgot 70 + 71. I loved the late 80's, Brent was something special in the mix. The next night 2cnd set was a classic. Who feels it knows it )

The Race Is One-55th/58 times played. An old standard in 73/74, only played sporadically after 80 acoustic runs.

Standing on the moon the second day was amazing, Jerry's voice was gone but he was shining like a star. What wonderful shows, and the best GD shirt ever!

Man it was hot as hell that day. While siting on the back bumper of a friend's Bronco eating pb&j sandwiches & drinking pop, Bill Graham drove up on a mini-bike and cursed us out. "You're the reason all of this is going to hell!" Seems he thought we were there as part of the parking lot scene, intent on causing trouble. I remember that first set being so much fun...we couldn't believe how long they played! I almost wish I couldn't hear it again because it really hasn't aged well and doesn't live up to how good I remember the boys playing. Loser is smoking, though.

Great show!
It was the first show ever for our friend Clay. Very hot! {the show, not so much Clay}.
I liked The Race is On. Queen Jane is always satisfying.
Missed the Sunday show. Another scorching SoCal day, and the a/c in the Honda died.
Plus, I found out that morning that I was pregnant! I guess the morning after our wedding wasn't "safe"! Phoebe was born on 12/30. I wanted to go to the New Year's Eve show, but has to listen on the radio in my hospital room, crying tears of hormones and joy.
This is one of my favorite shows for walking. Not as good for sex.

Too funny, we also bumped into Bill Graham in the lot and we were chillin. These shows got me my DEAD fix before I moved to Japan for a year. The official T-shirts had the Velodrome that was a signature landmark on campus. That soccer field was huge. Stayed at a hotel, where there was a prom event happening along with a weekend with the heads. What a trip. One head had a life size Gumby who hung in the hotel lobby bar with all of us until they kicked out hours later. We all booed and thought mngt was lame to have done it. We talk about Gumby in the bar till this day! Oh well, the band had just broke out the Weight so that was nice to catch along with the Race is on.

KPFA played this one 3 14 18. I am pretty such I have part of the show on a prior tape; there are about 700 or so so it is hard to find. they are not organized; just in Nike shoe boxes. Dead is funny; I found a drums and space late 80's that I really liked, it seemed to evolve from the early ones. Had some tune to it. Also, I was listening to some early 90s and I realized jerry and other instrument playing had not lost a beat. So, I too favor the 70s but can still find enjoyment in the latter years. thanks for reading

Nice energy throughout with a fun set list. The George Jones classic 'The Race Is On' was certainly a rare treat on this day. How rare? During the years '86 - '91, the Dead played this song only four times ('86, '89, 90, & '91), and on each occasion it coincided with the running of the Kentucky Derby. I never figured the boys to have been in tune with the horse racing world. With that in mind, it's a shame the Dead never performed 'Run for the Roses'.
