This show sounds sweet. The first set has a great song list, and played with
some feeling! What I remember most is the Standing On The Moon, although
it doesn’t translate totally on this SBD(not a criticism), Garcia was really
screaming, totally into it.”I’d rather be with you”. Oh, man! 5 stars just because
it was the last time I saw ’em. Thanks to all those involved.

REVIEW: inspiration
First of many shows. I vividly remember wondering why people were dancing
while they were tuning. I got my spot on the bus at the inspiration line in
terrapin. To me, the whole place lit up, and that was it. On tape, the show is
decent, nothin’ crazy, but it’s a turning point for me. Solid playing, good

REVIEW: good show
good 89 show maybe not top 10 but i really dig this setlist and it sounds good

REVIEW: When it feels like this night will last forever
Great show, great setlist, and awesome quality. Sounds great for an ’89 show.
So sweet………

REVIEW: encore includes sax
I see that Clarence Clemons is not noted to be on the encore but I sure hear a
“real” (not midi) horn during Black Muddy River. Also I concurr with the
review on the STOM, it is excellent.

REVIEW: be with you
yes, best SOTM ever. not a bad show either. excellent out of terrapin. i never
did like clarence clemmons, but in retrospect, he added something in small
doses. sound quality is excellent.

REVIEW: 1st post-quake show
This was quite a special show… the first Bay Area show after the earthquake.
Everone could smell the Shakedown opener (obvious but excellent choice) a
mile away after all the town had been through. The tuning-noise just before
the SHakedown here doesn’t do justice. If memory of this 17-year-old how
holds, there was a lot more excellent noise for a couple minutes that everyone
was totally psyched on.

REVIEW: Bobby?
Wondering if Bobby wasn’t feeling well this night. Only two songs in the
second set, not that I’m complaining, the more Jer the better. Five stars for the
recording/remastering, three for the performance.

REVIEW: Quality
Shakedown opener is creative, risk taking, and it works. Never have i heard a
shakedown arrangement quite like it. Brent and Jerry are trying some really
interesting things. Seven minute Jam following Terrapin. Sound is great as
always. Thanks Mr. Miller. Actually the sound at this show is perfect, one of
the best quality mix’s ive heard in a while

REVIEW: Brilliant!
Some one else noted Clarence Clemons credits, which should also included
some nice accents in Ship of Fools.

REVIEW: Thanks SF area fans
I attended this show with my wife during our honeymoon. I really enjoyed this
show and was very impressed with the fans, laid back atmosphere and the
BART! Nothing like the east coast at all. So orderly and polite! We sat next to
3 guys, Jerry side first level. They could tell my wife came along but was not
into the Dead. Gratefully my wife excused herself to use the ladies and one of
these guys offers me some boomers. I declined initially but as soon as the
lights went down and the boys came on stage I asked if the offer was still
good. No caps left but the dust was fantastic!
Fun time. Thanks Bay Area fans for making that night so special for me.

REVIEW: 30-years ago today.
This was my second time seeing the Grateful Dead. But this was my first real Dead Show. There is much I could describe about this experience, but I’ll keep it brief and just say, my life changed that night.
