“There is NOTHING like a Grateful Dead Concert!”
Seems as though I have inadvertently scooped Fathom Productions by selecting this date for my Monday, June17th broadcast. I usually make selections several weeks in advance and only found out about the Meetup in the past couple of days:
Giants Stadium, East Rutherford, N.J.

Eyes opener Video:
The only three reviews for this particular recording:
Just extraordinary, the mix of SBD and AUD is right on the money. Incredible ‘Eyes’ opener, wonderful show.
great show i was at and kind of forgot about,went to so many shows in a 3 year period this one got lost.what a
treat to hear the dark star i kinda saw again.
I like this show alot and deer creek and buckeye lake for this tour thanks dave your matrix is perfect
From another soundboard:
REVIEW: The Performance of the 90s?
If this is not the best performance of the 90’s, it’s top 5. The band is on all night – check out the Dark Star
references throughout from Hornsby, who is the player of the night. But not far behind is Mr. Garcia, who is as
playful and adventurous as he ever was. This show makes me smile every time I listen to it. This recording is
damn near perfect, with the unclipped beginning to Eyes, and the way through to the Weight encore. Here are
some other great moments of the show 1) The jam into Masterpiece, 2) Hornsby’s piano on New Speedway, 3)
The transition from China Doll to Playin’ reprise
The Just Exactly Perfect Brothers Band nailed it on 6/17/91 – don’t miss a note!
REVIEW: fine show
a very nice recording of one of my favorite late day dead shows. the boys were on for sure.. getting adventure
bound for sure.. opener of Eyes!, Bruce throwing in dark star teases all over the place.. I always enjoyed the
shows at giants stadium for some reason.. it seemed a lot more fun than the horror stories from the venue across
the street(meadowlands arena) any way thanks for a fine show to listen to and relive some sweet memories…
highlights besides eyes are the 2nd set opening jam>saint,truckin..Darkstartease> … a raucus masterpiece.. set
ending cassidy> might as well/ the new speedway.. the weight… highlites of this show was also shown on abcs
in concert series a short time later with a mini docu film regarding the rainforest..Im sure its out there.. I recall
jerrys long grey hair blowing all over the place.. a strange site on jumbo tron indeed.. I give the show high marks
for the era it is and a nice sounding sbd….
REVIEW: MIGHT AS WELL!
that’s it-plain and simple. The 1st set closer. If that particular “Might As Well” was put under pressure and asked
what song would best exemplify itself, without much pause,it would start jumping around the room and it’d be
like “T.N.T. I’m dynamite …T.N.T. and I’ll win the fight …T.N.T. I’m a power loud … T.N.T. WATCH ME
REVIEW: Jerry with wings
I seem to remember that there was a fan on Jerry that made his shoulder length hair take flight. Watching him
smile and the wings flap made me happy for him, just being in the moment, jammin’ with Bruce on Eyes. They
were really on that night in the Meadowlands. Does anyone remember that part of this show was on ABC(?) for
a Hot Summer Concert series they had in the early 90s? I got home and my pop had taped it so I got to watch a
few tunes up close on the tube.
REVIEW: A beautiful time had by all.
Brought two people with me who had never been to a show… they wanted to get on the bus. But it was too late.
REVIEW: WOW- this is a best of for any era
anyone who rates this less then 5 stars shoudl get their head checked. the Interplay between garcia and hornsby
is outstanding. Bruce enegerzied jerry so much, and this made summer 91 shows very good. Too bad bruce
couldnt be the permenant replace for brent, because he clearly knew the tunes better then vince
I loved being at this show. Spot on fer sure. All of the “dark Star” teases. “Saint of Circumstance” was
appropriate enough considering the rain earlier in the evening.”Rain falling down…”
some inspired playing here. For a 91 show Jerry is locked in and definitely enjoying himself.
