This was my first show and though I do not remember much about it, I have been searching for a copy. If anyone has a good soundboard, I undertsand that it's out there, please contact me.

I haven't heard the first set, but the Scarlet -> Fire, Estimated is my favorite, and the Comes a Time is beautiful. I only have this (somewhere) on tape. If anyone has it on CD, I'd love to trade for it.

uhm, i was there and the scarlet fire estimated were all saved by the comes a time, thanks in large part to bruce on the grand piano. however, there was this spineshivering feedback through the song thats still makes me shudder. the loose lucy is a gem, twice as long, so it seemed as the one they brought back in the spring at the cap was a good show, and those two make it worth the effort to listen again. and added incentive to get this show is coming out of the space bob was playing the other one and jerry did a HUGE O1 tease and then skreetched into miracle. very very nice work

ok, forgot one thing. druns consisted of mickey and hamza el din beating hand drums. the entire place was entranced as al din sang a mumuring african?? song. the arena absolutely erupted when it was over. i have never, ever heard such a long and thunderous applause from a dead show live or on tape (not for the first 89 loose lucy, not the dark star at the 10/16/89 meadowlands, the help slip fire at boston in 90...all of which i witnessed). the show was an ekg, peaking and dropping and spiking and falling off again. the peaks make it well worth the effort to get this show.

This was my first show. The whole night will always be epic to me, but seriously: that Comes a Time changed my life forever. Remember it like it was yesterday: the blue light & the chill up my spine when Jerry started singing. Just listened to it again and was broken & healed all over again. Like the man says: an empty cup only love can fill. Can't say it better than that.

There were other perfect moments & other amazing shows - I caught more than my fair share of good ones (somehow), but that will always top my list. Thank you boys. Miss you Jerry.

I was at this show as well and the next two. Listened to the NYE show at a downtown San Fran hotel. It was my first Bay area Dead experience and was an adventure from the time we got on the plane until we got back home in Pa. Dupress Diamond News called it the worst show of the year:)I do recall it was just OK, but I had not seen Loose Lucy to this point in the 11 years I had followed the band. It made my night. Nothing else mattered!
