This was my first Dead show!

Too Bad This Was Your 1st Show Billy This Is The 2nd worse Show I Seen Them Play Folowed By #1 Worse The Next Night..Very Disappointing Run Of Shows in Philly-BW

funny how opinions vary regarding grateful dead shows. I'm happy to say I never left a grateful dead concert angry because they didn't sound good or didn't play what I wanted to hear. I guess some people are hard to please. Rock On Billy. I attended this show and had a blast!

Train to Cry-last time played. 7 of 7 times. Good sounding Jerry.

Morning Dew-Well done.

While i normally shy away from Vince era shows, this one was quite good for themost part vocally and musically the boys never really faltered.

C.C.Rider-last of 127 versions.

Yo to Billy and Jstro. I was there too and loved it. I remembered that Train to Cry, BT Wind, and Ramble On Rose as a great stretch.

Incredible show! Let It Grow is absolutely stunning, one of the best I've heard, but the whole show is fantastic start to finish. Definitely one of the best of this '92 spring tour.

not sure why anonymous rates this as a bad show, just listened to entire show on GD Radio and, having also been there, this was an exceptional show for the era; CC>Train is outstanding...high energy as always in philly.

Only my opinion but I thought it was a stellar (at least for Vince era) first set but a very disappointing ssecond. My only train to cry! Good times opener. Nice stuff all the way through. I wasn't burnt out on corrina yet but it didn't do much for me. I tthought the scarlet fire was pretty half assed like Jerry's heart wasn't in it. Estimated and Morning Dew were pretty good but that's about it.

Expectation leads to disappointment every time. Just take what you can get and run with it, every show they played was miles above any other artist then or now... they were the Grateful F**kin' Dead. The part where shows are called good or bad comes from people comparing shows. they're all different and unique beasts of their own. This was a good show, but the boys were in their 40's and 50's. it's redundantly irrelevant to say they didn't sound the way they did when they were in their 20's and 30's. The music aged with the musicians. Most people don't bother looking into why they believe what they believe; they'd rather state their opinion as fact and scold anyone who disagrees. to be honest, I think jerry would be rollin' over in his grave if he heard some of the petty commentary on some of these shows... that is if Bob Weir didn't sprinkle his ass in San Fran Bay and India.

Either way, the vast majority of people on this site who claim that a show was bunk never give a reason why beyond; It's a Vince show, it's a 90's show, it's not a brent show, it's not a kieth show, it's not a pigpen show, I don't like the song choice, etc., etc... No detail, no reasoning, just opinionated projection. The few times I've seen people who gave reasons beyond that actually made valid points, which were hard to disagree with. In all honesty, I enjoy any show I can get my hands on, even summer '86 or '95.

In my personal opinion, It always seems so pointlessly selfish to state when you don't like something. Especially when it's done because someone else said they liked it. This show was damn fine to me, but if I thought it was sh*t i'd keep my mouth shut. Just my opinion though, dogs will be dogs and haters will hate. Nothin can be done to change it.

I was at this show. It wasn't my first, wasn't my last. Ate a piece of paper and melted into space.

Oh yes, what a strange setlist indeed - namely Set II. Odd Corrina opener into Scarlet Fire. Strange! Estimated into space, nice. Two songs post Space - weak, but that is the way Dead and Co do it now too! 4 songs pre space, 1 reprise and 2 songs out of space. Predictable !!!
