Written by Mark Binder on Sunday, April 2, 2023
I’ve seen thousands of reviews over the years, but this actually explains “A Deadhead”…
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”

Reviews from this recording:
I was at this show and remember this Hell > Sugaree was outstanding.
REVIEW: Stones segue into Magnolia
A reviewer of 12-19-78 tipped me off to this one. Sure enough, at 8:44, as Weir goes into his
“ashes, ashes” chorus, Garcia starts playing those snappy, Appalachian bends that kick off
Magnolia. This Ashes-over-easy transition ends around 9:22.
REVIEW: great show!
we were there too and loved this show! We got rides with kids old enough to actually drive and
crashed with Brown U. students in their dorms….super as remembered!
Applicable reviews from other recordings:
REVIEW: Solid Show
Strong show – Sugaree, Ramble on Rose, nice rarely heard Ain’t Superstitious, smooth Row
Jimmy with strong Phil, and a smoking Let it Grow make for a phenomenal 1st set. Terrapin is a
nice 2nd set opener & come to think of it could’ve fit well in that position. Spoonful & Wharf Rat
are also hot. Solid night, somebody invent a functioning time machine already!
REVIEW: Wish I coulda seen that smile
I wasn’t there…no, I was a mere 4-1/2 years old at this point, but I can just imagine during the
transition from Throwin’ Stones to Sugar Mag seeing Jer look over smiling at Bob who’s trying to
maintain the Ashes, Ashes while singing to Sugar Mag’s tune. Nicely done as usual.
REVIEW: Fun show
Was lucky to be home on spring break and caught both nights at the PCC. We were really happy with this show,
but the next night was even better. Certainly neither was a 5-star, but both were solid.
