“Yesterday’s Dead Today”, Monday, July 18th, 7-9pm Eastern

Written by on Sunday, July 17, 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 to be having a religious experience. Now I know why”

The only review of this particular recording goes to great lenghts to tell how he got into
the show. These reviews are from other recordings:
REVIEW: A peach of a show
Beautiful tune selection
THE WEIGHT = ENSEMBLE at it’s best

REVIEW: A peach of a show
Beautiful tune selection
THE WEIGHT = ENSEMBLE at it’s best

REVIEW: This was a hot show
I have seen hundreds of shows. Nothing lackluster about this one. The Other One > Dew
was something else at the show. I admit it does not come through as well on the
recording, but the consensus among the people I was with was that it was impossible to
top and no encore should have been played. It stomped.

REVIEW: Sloppy Show
I actually think that this show has a great setlist, but the playing was rather sloppy.

REVIEW: Deer Creek 1990
This show has some sloppy points, but it smokes! The set list is great. I liked this show
better than 7/19. The boys smoked at Buffalo on 7/16 and this show is just below that
one.

REVIEW: Not that great
I think this show is ok. I was there for both shows, and if you had asked me which night i
liked better at the time i would have said this one, but that was the drugs talkin. Since
then I’ve listened to the second night hundreds of times, and this one maybe twice.

REVIEW: Correction.
7-19 may well have been one of the strongest shows from the summer run. I remember
thinking that both shows that summer were powerhouse performances After listening to
7-18 I was not at all impressed very sloppy Jerry and Brent both sound haggard. The
cassidy never really takes off. The Deal is average. China-Rider is garbage. Weak LLR.
From Terrapin on the show is slightly Better.

REVIEW: peggy-o on the hill
‘think we were all,including the band,gettin’a little haggard durin’this point of the
tour.Things were not quite takin off as they should…thats cool…have a smoke,take in the
sights…it was hot that day…thick air.then peggy-o……just something about this
version.jerry was into it.almost time traveled to the civil war…thick air…our group on the
hill had a great time…more sights and sounds…we all agreed that mornin dew was intense
and really cut through…deer creek was a nice place in see them…sorry to say…the tour
never really got its MOJO back after buffalo…will u marry me…i’ll set your cities free…

REVIEW: Average Deal??
Wow. After seeing both shows I would never guess that anyone would rate that Deal as
average or below. Also, no recording can do justice to the sound at DC for those shows
(in my humble opinion).

REVIEW: My first Dead Show
I was 16 years old and playing the junior tennis circuit. I snuck out of my coaches house
in Indy and attended the show. My coach found out about it and made me run all
afternoon the next day — it was worth it. From that point until Jerry’s passing, catching
the next dead show was all I could think about. Caught 21 shows over the next few years.
Not a road warrior like many out there, but a nice chapter in my life.

REVIEW: A metaphorical H>S>F
I know this show gets knocked for some sloppy, end of tour playing, but they were the
last shows w/ Brent’s calliope, carnival B-3 adding what we were never able to get back
from the Band ever again. This version of H>S>F is one of MY favorites. The emotion
and uncertainty that oozes from this one–especially in the Help on the Way and Slipknot
lends itself to a unique, shaky, yet still powerful-if not just plain DARK rendition of this
tune. With what transpired over the next week—I believe we heard what the Band as a
whole were feeling, on this one. Hot summertime, MIDI soaked Dead at it’s finest.

REVIEW: Good set list for 1990
This show seems to be taking some heat for being a bit sloppy/mailed-in, whatever
denigration folks seem to want to hurl. For my money, this is one of the better first sets of
the tour — so many others from this year seem rote.

REVIEW: sublime
either you’re on the bus or off the bus. if you don’t like it please move along, thanks.
there’s lots of us who dig this stuff. what a great fucking show! i was there and it changed
my life.
