Thanks to Matt Smith for the discs
The audience patches are all from a nice aud recording and the repairs are
almost unnoticable, and, as usual, Charlie does a magnificent job of
remastering. I almost considered broadcasting the fine aud, but couldn’t pass
up another “Mr. Carlie” soundboard!

From Charlie Miller’s soundboard reviews:
REVIEW: More like Stiff Sucker
This show rocks and is not a perfect recording but if the power of this Scarlet
> Fire doesn’t hit you then you are pulseless. Thanks to Charlie for giving us a
board of the most important parts of this really solid show!!
REVIEW: Thank you!
I want to thank Charlie for this. Just as I requested. I was at this show when I
was 16 years old and what a show. It was my first Dead show. This
soundboard is very good, I don’t know why it is getting such a bad rep. Any
way Charlie, thanks for completing the request.
REVIEW: The only real gold left in America in 2009…old Dead shows.
Trust fund take a hit out there in Summit County, Brah? Light one up and
lighten up—this is the Soundboard—just not the full meal deal, if you can get
over it!!! 😉 Spiraling, ornate Scarlet>Fire and a very,very exquisite Peggy-O
are my highlights….Jerry’s voice and his licks and plucks in this Peggy
combine for one of those real fine versions my ears are always searching for.
REVIEW: bit overrated but interesting and worthwhile
A bit overrated, sloppy and lazy at points, but there’s a strange psychedelic
undertone the whole time and some moments of really intense stuff.
First of all…I LOVE CHARLIE MILLER! God bless your contributions my
man. Second of all…I understand this is totally objective, but to me? ’82-’84
are my favorite years. Yes, even over ’71, ’74, ’77’ and ’89. I have NEVER
EVER EVER heard a Scarlet > Fire transition as weird as this one. Bobby’s
guitar work is stellar. Don’t miss the forest for the trees people…at the very
least listen to this Scarlet Fire. WOW
REVIEW: welcome to the Mickey Mouse club
Grate setlist, grate show. Some listeners might think it sounds crappy, I myself
think it sounds fine. It sounds like an 82-85 SBD. They pretty much all kind of
sound this way from this era.
The highlights to me are, Peggy-O, Scar-Fire, and the Eyes. Birdsong gets a
nod as well except for the aud patch (but you cant really tell)
REVIEW: Nice Scarlet>Fire
Not the best sound, reminds me of 1982 when I started collecting tapes. This
soundboard would have been an “A” back then. Guess we are all getting a bit
jaded now that we gave so much great sounding music. Best part for me is
Jerry’s inflection in Scarlet. He always had an amazing knack to emphasize
different lyrics on any given night. What great emotion.
REVIEW: This is a supremely hot show
Cliff, I feel bad that you saw this show but didn’t enjoy it. WOW, it would have been AMAZING to
catch this show. This is a GORGEOUS Peggy-O, an explosive Let It Grow, and A SUBLIME
Scarlet-Fire. Screaming hot Scarlet-Fire. Sure the recording is flawed, and I pray the Rhino people invest
in cleaning it up. But HALLELUJAH we have it even in this form. HOT.
