I’ve seen thousands of reviews over the years, but this actually explains “A Deadhead”…
“REVIEW: stella
As a new fan of the Dead it was years before I realized the importance of the tears streaming down
the face of the girl beside me. She seemed to be having a religious experience. Now I know why”

REVIEW: dig it
sounds great….

REVIEW: Chi Town Dead
Wooo! Amazing performance and quality for the ’87 revival period for Grateful Dead. Jerry has
new life in him and he’s peeling away on Tiger. Right out the gate w/ a smoking Shakedown.
These three nights have some really good highlights.

REVIEW: Billy and Mick
The finest Rooster ever? not my favorite song, but by far my favorite version. the band is
SSSSmoking,tight interplay and extended jamming in the standards. After a couple of doozies
the crowd is going wild and phil redirects the applause to the drummers …….. “Billy and Mick”

REVIEW: Yes It Was An Amazing Night!
The set list does not begin to capture this very memorable night. This brought me back to the
Dead, after a few years of thinking the band had lost it, which, during some shows in the
mid-80s, was clearly true. A great night!

REVIEW: excellent show
this rips start to finish with an amazing lovelight and great encore of baby blue this is easily one
of the best of 1987.and yes this is without a doubt the best rooster ever.

REVIEW: Smile, Smile, Smile
I remember Jerry seeming very happy, animated and somewhat footloose during this, my first
show at the age of 16. 21 years ago? How is that possible? I think I am still there as the first
chords of Shakedown rearrange my synapses. Leaving the quaint UIC Pavillion that evening,
covered in afterbirth, I was changed for good. . . and I mean good.

REVIEW: One of the Great Underrated Shows
A cooker from start to finish, including the best version of Looks Like Rain ever performed. I
was there, loved it when it was going on, and think it still stands the test of time today. Don’t let
this one slip past your radar.

First set starts sounding a bit rushed, but the band soon warms up to the pace they set for themselves; by
Mexicali, the jamming is really getting interesting. The He’s Gone & Other One are smokin’, and Black Peter is
very good…instrumentally. The boys are not singing that well: always rough, the harmonies are even more harsh
and discordant than usual. Overall, a standard rather than great show.
