Written by Mark Binder on Sunday, June 11, 2023
I’ve seen thousands of reviews over the years, but this actually explains “A Deadhead”…
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”

While there are no reviews of this particular recording there are many of others:
REVIEW: VOLCANO TOUR!!!!!!!
This IS the legendary show. Yes, ladies & Gents, Mt. St. Helens INDEED erupted DURING Fire
on the Mountain!!! Granted it was the second BIG one, not the initial eruption. It is indeed a
spooky moment in GD history. They had problems getting to Seattle, then Spokane & then back
to the airport in Seattle to Alaska because of all the ash!! That they caused!!!!!!! Ahhh, the
powers of the Grateful goddamn Dead!!!
REVIEW: Fire On the Mountain/Mount St. Helens
Indeed, at 9:09 p.m., a powerful explosion at Mount St. Helens sent a plume of ash 10 miles in
the air. Could well have been during FOTM.
Wow, this really is a good Estimated!
REVIEW: Great crowd
The enegry from the crowd is fun, the music is very present. The 16+ minute Estimated is just
From Drums>Scarlet>Fire…emerges a dead on Prophet….back into percussion which keeps the
groove for the NFA that follows…The energy thru-out the recording is brilliant, but that section
in particular, full of harnessed emotions only the Dead could capture.
MONSTER “Estimated Prophet.”
You hear alot about the “Fire on the Mnt.”, but the “Estimated” is on fire itself. The whole
Drums>Scarlet>Fire>Estimated is just out of this world, but hey that’s what the Grateful Dead do
REVIEW: YES YES YES!!!
FINALLY! My First Show…. been looking for a good copy since the very next day! At Last! Of
note: Mt St Helens Erupted DURING Fire on the Mountain, causing an early exit as the band and
gear had to make it up I-5 to Seattle for the show on the 13th, they ended up closing I-5 due to
ash fall not long after the trucks (and several VW Busses) made it through.
REVIEW: this tape sizzles
Check out the jam in Cassidy, that’s about as hard as that song can rock. In fact, Bobby is ‘on’ the
entire show. Lots and lots of energy
REVIEW: While this isn’t “the” infamous May 18 eruption,
there was an explosion and ash plume on June 12. A basic Wiki glance reveals this: At 7:05 p.m.
on June 12, a plume of ash billowed 2.5 miles (4.0 km) above the volcano. At 9:09 p.m. a much
stronger explosion sent an ash column about 10 miles (16 km) skyward. This event caused
the Portland area, previously spared by wind direction, to be thinly coated with ash in the middle
of the annual Rose Festival. A dacite dome then oozed into existence on the crater floor,
growing to a height of 200 feet (61 m) and a width of 1,200 feet (370 m) within a week. It
was Portland’s turn to be ashed.
