“There Is NOTHING like a Grateful Dead concert!”
I had already programmed this broadcast when I learned of the passing of Matt Reynolds, tour “guru”
for The Dark Star Orchestra, and so I am breaking ranks with both myself and my show “rules” by
featuring a Dead-related concert not nearly from “today in history” in order to pay my own small tribute
to not only a “family” member, but one of the behind-the-scenes people largly responsible for putting
on events such as these. And so, next week’s broadcast, June 19, will feature a very recent concert by
the DSO, saluting a Grateful Dead concert(as is their wont), from almost half a century ago…
From the DSO Facebook entry:
“For the past 12 years, Matt was the Tour Mystic behind countless DSO tours, leading all from the helm
of his trusty travel desk, being the behind-the-scenes beacon guiding us through success, tumult, and all
points in between, usually with great humor, and always with gentle nature.
Matt’s role was not for the weary, and when he ever was, he was careful not to share. Our ship of fools
sails now without captain, our guiding light extinguished, the weight of our loss an anchor to this

REVIEW: ok crazymona is back
we were 10th row for this one and 3rd row the next boy oh boy was summer tour the best or what….!!!!
REVIEW: From the moment
You hear the first note to start Feel Like a Stranger, you know the dead is delivering that 91′ style that
captured the bands notion to dig grooves of the later daze! Peggy-O Is just a classic in itself and I find
that it’s just as potent in this show as an older version that touches ya’ soul! I will mention that the
althea at one point had given me so much uhmph in younger moments of sadness. This song is a great
reminder to all the kids who were out there in 91 living it up that they caught a great year!
REVIEW: stranger on the keys?
always loved a “stranger” opener but it just doesn’t have that snap without Brent….. at least this one.
The keyboards seem jumbled and in the background where as Brent was way more confident and his
sound suited the song way better than a piano…. just sayin’
REVIEW: Simply Great !
the sound it’s okay and the show it’s a great show.
REVIEW: ONE OF MY FAVS
I cannot belive this… this is one of the best shows i have ever heard ALTHEA is comepletly rocking on
this. Jerry just put his sould in that one. MAkes me cry, im 19 i wasn’t alive but i’ll tell you what one
day somone fipped me a tape of this show and its my favorite one ever since i will stand by this date till
the day i die. its beautiful… simply beautiful SOUND IS AWESOME
REVIEW: Ode to Althea
Missed this show because of a car wreck the previous night. The car’s name was Althea and she was
totalled. Jerry eulogized her in style with that rendition. This show cooks start to finish, a fitting
contrast to the previous night’s mellowness. Sound is a bit fuzzy in my opinion.
REVIEW: 15 yrs today
Funny how me and my traveling cohorts really hated this show compared to the night before. In
retrospect, apparently the acid WAS better the night before, but this show does in fact rock. Of course,
after the drum circle ONTOP a moving policecar following the previous show, this one had some shoes
This was a decent show ,one of the few indoor shows on the summer tour.To me the first set is really
good, especially Althea.Jerry takes the solo and drives it ’till it erupts !I am not a huge fan of post Brent
shows ,but they seem real focused in the spring and summer ’91.Bruce really added a lot of color and
texture ,and exitement that could be seen in Jerry.I really didn’t care much for the accordian though.The
’90-’91 era sounds like they actually rehearsed !
REVIEW: absolute love
for althea and this entire show**** LOVE 91 this is one of the best of 91
