No reviews of this particular recording…these are from others:
REVIEW: Don’t Overlook This One
The Dead visited Spokane just this once, but they sure made it count. Everything sparkles. Even the
Cowboy Bob covers are played with conviction. Anchorage seems to get the most attention, but if
you’re following this Northwest run, or just digging into 1980 in general, don’t miss this one.
REVIEW: Another hot ’80 show
I haven’t seen this show on many lists but it’s well worth acquiring. The pre-drums second set in
particular is played extremely well. I’ll give this show four stars for performance.
REVIEW: still in a trance
The eyes of the world is one of those tightly packed endless jumperinos that made even the local
vendors of the braizzure hotdogs fall in love with all those twirling dirtyhaired west coast stinkys out
in the hallways. By the end there is no crowd noise, only sweat and mesmerized everybody. I love ’80
and ’81 for these intricate speedy excursions.
REVIEW: rating shows bias
This venue was (it no longer exists) an echo chamber and sometimes a painful experience to hear
music. Somewhere I read Garcia stating that the perfect Stella Blue should have moments of silence.
This one is a good example. I was mesmerized on this night.
