With The Dead breaking out Rubin & Cherise this tour, I thought I had seen it done before. I was right, and it lit up the Cap Centre. Even the yellowshirts boogied.

Yeah - all around an amazing show. The place blew up when they did Reuben & Cherise. It was actually hard to hear because the crowd was going so crazy. Also, a wicked new Speedway...very interesting as it was the Dead's first trip to D.C after the Gulf War....Very was also on St. Paty's Day too....great day partying with a killer show to cap it off!!!

I looked over @ my brother during the end of bucket while Bobby was screamin' "enjoin the riiiidddee" my brother was laughing his ass off. I knew he was hooked.

Slow first set until...Rubin! Let It Grow was hot. Second set was very good.

I taped most of this tour and perhaps the single greatest moment was the start of Rubin & Cherise. I have listened to this countless times, mesmerized by how it unfolds. The band starts the first four bars and a generic cheer goes up from the crowd, as if to say, "Oh, hey, it's more than halfway through the first set and now they're playing another song!" But on my tape there are several young women who by the second bar start screaming HYSTERICALLY - they *knew* ... and when the word "Cherise" came out of Jerry's mouth, boy did the rest of the crowd catch up in a hurry. An absolutely electrifying moment.

I'll never forget this Rubin. I was SO lucky because I saw Jerry's expression just before he played the first chord. I was on the Phil side, at stage level on the first teir of risers. Looking across the stage to Jerry, he lit up as he turned to Mickey and Bill just as they were counting in. I remember his smile and I could tell he was excited. I could sense the vibe and as he strummed that iconic progression for the first time with the Dead, I stood knowing it was going to be heavy! For me it didn't take more than those first three chords to know the song- I was blown away and will never forget that smile on Jerry!!
