What a killer show....!

the best show ever played by anybody anywhere in the world. Best show in the history of man

So, I just listened to this show (crappy audience tape) after not hearing it for years, and...what can I say?
I think in the 8 years and nearly 100 shows I've seen, this ranks in the top 3 of all time...the energy level during the Sugar --> Scarlet 2nd set opener (and the DEAFENING ROAR of the crowd) was never matched. I think 50,000 folks got a real treat in seeing this show. Gives me shivers to this day.

Sugar Mag>Scarlet is exquisite

A truly defining moment -- what a wonderful show.

This should be the next "View From the Vault" DVD release....

never gonna see a show like this again.
my favorite of the 60 I saw.

I LOVED that show..Crosby Stills & Nash opened the show...What more couls you ask for!?!? The Dead were simply amazing...Excellent SOLD OUT show...

I agree with all the above comments. This show had that something special you look for. Of the 90+ I saw this one is in the top 5.

Mind Left Body Jam and killer post-drums. The jam before the Wheel. Beautiful! Phil is cranked up for Gimme Some Lovin. Wharf RAT!!!!

I still get shivers when I think of this show out of the 100+ this was in the top 3

my first dead show, how can i forget it, i was home on leave from the air force (oversees in england) and still have the shirt i bought!

My Dad went to this show, God rest his soul, and i have the tape and ticket stub. 24 bucks for Crosby,Stills, and Nash AND the Grateful Dead...i'm paying 30 just to see mule this saturday. B.S.

This is a smoking show! Can anyone who was there confirm that Brent's keys did not actually light on fire during either set of this show? He is on a tear the whole show. I was never a huge Brent songs fan, but the Blow Away is awesome! All around great show, songs, singing and playing!

THis is NOT a mind left body jam. It's just a normal jam. It actually has more resemblance to The Other One than MLB Jam.

"the best show ever played by anybody anywhere in the world. Best show in the history of man"

Not even the best show of 1990...nice try...oh, I saw every show there and Bufu sucks, nice Hyatt though.

My favorite show. Perfect east coast summer night and the crowd was fired up. So many highlights but the Loose Lucy and the transition into Scarlet stand out in my memory. I remember a chain of balloons going all the way from the field to the top of the stadium during setbreak.

My favorite show ever! Not just musically but spiritually! There was such a great vibe at this show. Only show I've been to wear the crowd did the wave!

Great show. Great first set. Last timeI saw Brent playin' in the band.

Little did I know...

The 1st time I heard this show was sitting in a parking lot on the way to the Palace from RFK. The guys in the car next to us were listening to it and I couldn't believe what I was hearing. Asked them what show it was and a few minutes later they handed me the tape. Cool guys.

Hot summer day...CSN opener...24 song set list and they boys were on fire. Awesome to be able to hear a crisp version! Love the interwebs. Wonder if anyone knows the CSN set list?

Brents last high time. Chilling background vocals throughout. Brent tickles the ivories on tomorrow come trouble/pain. Eerie. Jerrry and brent mesh nicely, and phil is unusually strong on this usually plain/gentle tune. Wow. A gem.

Spooky Space!
-Anonymous (05/29/2020)

This is the best dead show that Ive ever attended, and Ive attended MANY more celebrated shows. Trucking Jam, Sugar Mag -> Scarlet transition, that pedal on Women are Smarter, Drumz, Brent on Gimme Some Lovin. Peak 90s Dead. If only Brent didnt OD a week later...

$1 Molsons in the lot all day long. We were very fortunate to have some authentic orange sunshine🌞.... met some great people at the campground. Crosby, Stills and Nash was amazing. Great show... but Scarlet>Women are Smarter was a big disappointment... even well played, they dropped the ball there... FOTM missing in action.

You people need to lay off the acid. If you actually use your ears and listen, right out of the gate they fuck hell in a bucket so hard in the ass it is not only painful it's embarrassing. Huge trainwreck coming out of the solo. Admittedly they redeem themselves pretty well but even still, this show is nowhere near the top 50 let alone 3 or 5.
