Written by Mark Binder on Sunday, February 21, 2021
“It is said that, if you lined up all those who have ever been to a Grateful Dead concert head-to-toe, the line would stretch around the moon, and about halfway back. And nobody would complain!”
Oakland Coliseum Arena, Oakland, CA
February 22, 1992
SBD > Cassette Master (TDK SA-X100)
Recorded by Don Pearson and Dan Healy
All transfers and mastering By Charlie Miller
The signal from the board was too loud and is oversaturated but it is a fine,
fine FLAC24 recording by that master of mastering, Charlie Miller. Very
polished, and very electric! They could have opened with the first, closed
with the second, and i think all would have gone away happy!

Scant reviews from other recordings:
REVIEW; chinese new year
thank you! haven’t heard the shows since i almost got ran over by a dancing
dragon smokin down the stairs..lol..great times, miss them much ! great
REVIEW; The debut of…
So Many Roads and Wave to the Wind
REVIEW; Debut tunes
So Many Roads is a good Jerry balld. Wave to the Wind I could easily do
without! Mediocre show…I was at it and had lots of fun, but nothing special
This show is perhaps the most underrated of 1992. A raging
Bertha>Promised 1st set opener. The very tight and unusual Saturday
Night>1/2 Step 2nd set opener and a great Estimated jam into drums with
Phil hinting at Pink Floyd’s “One of these Days.” The rest of the show is
standard in terms of setlist, but very tight – surprisingly so for the first show
of the year. This is a good recording, but if you can find one, try the AUD.
REVIEW; Winter Light
Drove from a few states away to see this show as a college student and it
flipped my lid. It is funny how deadheads became so demanding by becoming
addicted to the tunes rather than appreciating them for what they are/were.
This was a really fun night and in case you serious computer drones forget,
the band was about having fun, enjoying life. Take your tapes on a long drive
or listen to drums and space while looking at the stars for gawdsake. Even
this simple show from 92 will blow your socks off if you let it! Great Show.
REVIEW; not bad!!!
the bertha>promised grooves along nicely….. jerry sounds real good for 92….
his guitar is a little too low in the mix…. vince’s keys, and bobby’s guitar
overpower jerry…… but it’s not bad….
REVIEW; Great Memoir of a Great Night
I travelled with several friends from the Seattle area to this show, and despite
the comments left by live archive aficionados here in reviews section, this
was one of the many and more fun nights I ever spent with the band and
Deadheads at large. This is a ‘big time’ Grateful Dead rock and roll show with
the Bertha>Promised Land opener, plus One More Saturday Night to kickoff
the second set. Fun, fun, fun night, never to be forgotten. Then throw in that
the band played a couple of new tunes that they’d never tried live before?
Enough said. I highly recommend a listen to this show.
REVIEW; 2nd set opener
AWESOME guitar coming from Jerry in Mississippi esp. at the end….obvi.
love so many roads; the start of an evolution here on this song brings rating
