Written by on Sunday, February 19, 2023

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 to be having a religious experience. Now I know why”

REVIEW: 5 stars, 2 shows in a row
This show is just as good as the previous night. Anyway, I think this show smokes!

REVIEW: Jerry!!!
Almost drove off the road listening to this the other day on GD channel. Jerry takes it to the next
level on every song. Vocals are distant, but Jerry’s playing more than makes up for that. Thank

REVIEW: Golden Hall
It is keen to listen to Brent mess about with the drummers. A cool show, Thank you.

REVIEW: Cool show/recording
Positive vibrations. If you want to transport yourself back to an 80’s show, this is a good one to
do it with. Check out the maniac screaming right before Jack Straw, I think he sums it up

REVIEW: where is this?
Does anyone know where this show is?? I lived in SD for 6 years now and have never heard of
Golden Hall at the Community Concourse. Real groovin’ show but sound quality a bit sketchy!!

REVIEW: Unreal
Ripping++++ 18 min Let it Grow one of the best of the 80’s and up there with Binghampton ’83.
CC Rider is one of the best I have ever heard. Franklins>Sampson I believe is a one and only…
Face it this show kicks total ass.

REVIEW: Impeccable sound
I love the set list for the 2nd set. Franklins> samson>rr blues>playin’. How’s that for high energy!
The recording is pristine and if all shows were this crisp I’d be a loyal audience listener.

Great small venue…I remember tossing a frisbee before the show with Bobby Brady (who had
flowers painted on his face and was blissing several hours before the show)…no dancing in the
aisles, security was ultra uptight…I also remember – as the other poster mentions – Weir pointing
at a security dude and barking “Pay Attention!” during Samson…and yes Garcia absolutely tears
up “Let It Grow”…I remember being confused by the Franklins-Samson second set opener…after
the show a bunch of us went to Mexico and spent the night at a beach house…coming back the
next morning to get to UCLA for the next show we were DETAINED because I’m Canadian and
didn’t have my passport…they searched my friend’s truck for hours…nightmare!…managed to
make it through and made the Pauley show in time…These were great shows and nice memory
listening to them for the first time many, many years…thanks for posting!

REVIEW: Opera Night
This show is definitely a superior show, along with the night before. The first set is excellent
with a superior To Lay Me Down, a great CC Rider and one of the best Let It Grows out there.
Set 2 is just awesome. As far as I know this is the only time that Franklin’s was used as the
opening song snd the transition into Samson is flawless!! The BRR and Playing are also great
versions with a real nice Brent solo Jam into the drums. Get these 2 Golden Hall shows, they are
underrated and very few folks seem to have ’em. This venue was located in the performing arts
center adjacent to the Opera Theater, and there was a big square between them. I forget which
night, but on one of these nights in ’82 there was an Opera playing at the same time and the
juxtaposition of the Opera crowd with their gowns and tuxes etc mingling with the tie dye crowd
is something I will never forget.
