REVIEW: My first show
went dressed as clowns with Pat Sanley and Eric Radmaul from New Canaan CT. Got a ride home from Dave
Lindsay after losing those clowns!
REVIEW: A very nice first set, apart from a slightly flubby Music.
Tape needs some EQing…but it’s better than a freakin’ board!?! Forget boards. They’re almost never better than
OK at best…well, Miller remixes and so forth excepted I suppose…Great Scarlet/Fire. Lost/Saint is kind of a
fuster cluck, with many missed changes, but at least the peak of Saint is awesomely executed. Kind of a cool
Drums/Space! Other One starts off kinda aimless, but once it gets going it’s fantastic, and everything from there
thru Not Fade is excellent too.
REVIEW: Back to Back!
Epic show from an epic tour! Played same (almost) dates in Spring 83/84. Coliseum just a memory now as it
was demo’d a few years back. Great ride on green gels, monster versions of Scarlet/Fire, Other One! (see also
6/27/83 for another drawn out noodley killer O.O.) NFA-everyone just going wild in the halls at that point.
Super special memory. Thanks again Boys!
REVIEW: The Bus came by and I got on
This is another great early 80’s show. Any 1st set with Candyman, T. Jed, and Peggy-O will be a hot one for
Jerry fans–and who isn’t? As for Bob, LL>Supplication and the Other One (see review title) are gems. Don’t
even get me started on all the other show highlights…
REVIEW: First Show
This was my first ever Dead show–I was so fried on acid that I ate a cigarette in the car on the way to the
show…Got dragged there by my girlfriend, wasn’t really into the Dead but she loved them — couldn’t believe the
scene outside it was wild, like a time machine dropped us off in the late 60’s. Don’t remember much specific
about the first set other then dancing my ass off–second set Scarlet was HOT, the jam at the end and into Fire
though I remember like it was yesterday that has never left me This was an unbelievable show–this is the
concert got me hooked on Dead Shows for the next 12 years…
REVIEW: A great show!
I was there for this one and Phil was turned all the way up from the get go. It was his show, but EVERYBODY
was hot this night. One of the most highly underrated shows of the ’83 tour. I had a cassette copy of this same
mix that has been worn down to a frazzle from overuse.
REVIEW: This was a great show alright
one of many in a very hot year!
REVIEW: Fun night
Very fun these 2 shows, heck the tour was fun. Brings you rite back to youth.
How could I not give it 5 stars feels like your inside the show again. How many nights did they pull off and 18
minute Other one after 74? Not many I care to bet, yet this night we got one.
