There are no reviews of this particular recording.These are from other
REVIEW: If You Like Phil…
… and his Aural Exciter; an inboard effect he eventually abandoned (but I wish
he’d have kept ~ ’cause I don’t hear the same immaculate bass guitar tone when
I hear him today)…another typical show of that era, the most profound era in
this band’s history: the combination of great sound and precious recordings
coupled with adequately accomplished performances. Even the drum solos
knock you out. Every note sounds like it’s graphed. 10 of 5 star rating.

REVIEW: bread crumb
Very cool “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” riff from Phil, I think, during space.

As with much of the Welnick/Hornsby period, there is way too much
keyboard and not enough Garcia. Some nice jamming.

REVIEW: High Altitude Dead!
Really nice sound here (matrix?). Listened to “last night” last night! This was a super fun run, my first shows without Brent and some of my last ever…Hornsby really fit in well and his playing is super spirited. Great moments from all 3 nights. Great times…!!!

REVIEW: Excellent Show
The title of this review kind of says it all. This is a stellar show. The whole run
was amazing, you could feel a palpable sense of magic in the air all three

REVIEW: Best of the run
This show just has it all great song selection and great playing. Aside from the
dark stars this show was my favorite of the run

From what I remember, the band was smokin’ during the dew. Jerry was on
fire. It ended and it seemed as everyone was stunned. Nobody knew what to
do so Phil busts out the Box of Rain. Yea PHIL.

REVIEW: Favorite box of rain
I remember there was so much energy in the building building up to the end of
morning dew…. then box of rain starts and a like a cool breeze the temperature
dropped noticeably as everyone relaxed. The “spinners” were out in force at
this show. Walking the hallways there were so many women spinning in
circles to Jerry, dresses flowing. beautiful stuff. (but sitting during bobby
songs ?!?) Boy it was cold outside, the wind was really blowing. Still this 3
days was my favorite trip to Denver ever.

REVIEW: My First Dead Show
This was my first Dead show. I was 11 years old and my dad took me to this
show on a school night. I remember my mom wasn’t that happy about being
out so late on a weekday. Anyways, the only two Dead albums I listened to at
that time were “Anthem” and “American Beauty.” I was so excited when they
played “The Other One” and especially “Box of Rain.” It was quite an
experience for me. My fondest memory of the Dead Community came at set
break. I had to go to the bathroom and went by myself. I climbed up the stairs
to the main level from the our floor seats in my Steal Your Face t-shirt and
couldn’t believe how many people were in line for the men’s bathroom. I am
standing there at the back of the line and all of a sudden someone nudged me
forward. Everyone started yelling, “Kid coming through!” I got guided up to
the front of the line past about 100 people and did my deed. As an 11 year old,
I though, “What nice people.” I made it back down to my seat for the start of
the second set. Great memories for me! Thanks for putting this show up! It
brings back a lot of very fond memories. Cheers!
