Written by on Sunday, April 3, 2022

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 have a
religious experience. Now I know why”

Very few reviews of this show, and none from this recording. Here are some from others:
REVIEW: The Dirty South ATL
Spirited first set, LTGTR and High Time (rare) are nicely done.Second set is where your
tasty treats are. the HSF opener is strong, great franklins. Estimated is well done, with
some nice faux horn work from Welnick into a great great He’s Gone. Hornsby leads a
chilling vocal jam that literally took it to the rafters at the Omni. One of my favorite
versions of He’s Gone.

REVIEW: Grate Show
from start to finish the effort of a well-rehearsed and in-synch band. Garcia Lesh Weir
Kreutzmann Hart Welnick Hornsby. Cuttin’ heads on all three nights

REVIEW: Jerry-Fest ’91
I hit the preceeding Greensboro’s, but unfortunately missed these Omni’s. This show
features excellent versions of TLEO, Ramble on Rose, HSF and He’s Gone–and light on
the shwaggy new tunes!

REVIEW: Great show
Why only 3 stars? This is an excellent show and a terrific recording. Second set is indeed
the better part, but first set is fun too. Wish I was there….

REVIEW: pretty good show
1st set is Ok. 2nd set is where its happenin. guess i can stretch a 4 star rating on this

REVIEW: OMNI 04/04/91
I did this whole tour , and this was one of my favorites of the run. playing was excellent
and there was “that” vibe in the air. great set list and strong garcia through out. cause I
can’t give 4.5 i’m gonna go w 5

REVIEW: Great Run at Omni
I went to all 3 of these Atlanta shows in 1991, they were all real good, I think I liked this
night the best of the 3.

REVIEW: @cb18201
entire set is great! 1991 is the last year that has the classic GD heart in it..
1993-the end, have “something” missing (be it a feeling) play on boys!

REVIEW: good 4 star show, which is pretty f’n decent
as i said… memphis blues, help/slip/frank pretty sweet… post space really enjoyed.

REVIEW: Great venue. Sure miss it all
I was at this run. The Omni was simply a fantastic venue for a Dead show. The crowd
was always high energy. This was a good show, but I can’t really say it’s a 5. However, no
matter how good or bad the show was, the venue made it so much better. Miss those days.
