the standing --> hes Gone is on View from the Vault

Standing On The Moon, He's Gone, and KY Jam are included on the officially released DVD "View From The Vault."

Wild show, weird scene. Beer sales stopped right as Bucket the last two cups of brew. Drums>Trucking was killer...awesome dancin skeletons!

wow...just discovered the show and what a show it is.
in the first set, "hell in a bucket>sugaree" is a great way to start off the show and has always been a fav combo of mine. brent struggles a bit on "easy to love you," was he sick or something? despise some vocal problems, his playing on this song and the rest of the show was pretty great. love the midi trumpet on "ramble on rose" the ending jam of "the music never stopped" is fantastic.

the second set is where this show becomes legendary however. the segue in "China/Rider" is terrific" but the real gem of the show is in "standing on the moon>he's gone." it's a fairly atypical combo considering they're both jerry songs, but goddamn if i've ever heard jerry so emotional in "SOTM" or jerry rip it up so hard on the outro jam of he's gone. There are many times during the jam where they almost go into a another song...the beginning of the jam sounds a bit like jerry's thinking of "smokestack lightning" but later in the jerry he clearly teases the "other one." the post D/S combo of "truckin'>wharf rat>goin' down the road feeling bad>around and around" is a classic combo that would fit perfectly into a 1973 setlist. AMAZING show

Agree. The SOTM>He's Gone is fantastic.

My first Dead show. So glad I finally looked up the setlist. Was definitely a crazy show with a weird vibe all day and night. Circled the stadium three times trying to find our car after it was over. Good times.

Hold on to your hats for this little factoid, people:

This is the LAST time that they ever played Truckin' out of space. In fact, it is the last time that Truckin' ever was in the post drums / space part of the show.

Yes, for those that had been with this band for a while it seems impossible to think that Truckin' could ever disappear from the post-drums/space position, but it did. 1990 was the last time we ever saw Truckin' in the backstretch of a 2nd set.

The HOTTEST show I ever saw of the Dead. Wandered into folks on the floor/field from hometown and didn't know they even dug the Dead! All 3 folks were Gorgeous girls I'd looking for some way to find common ground. Wow did I ever. A Dead show is a great icebreaker! First time I saw Jerry in shorts. It was frickin' HOT!! GREAT gig. I remember being right by the soundboard and hearing Jerry walk across the Oriental carpet during a quiet part during space. Such wonderful audio clarity! Then Truckin' out of Space... Whoa....
