“It is said that, if you lined up all those who have ever been to a Grateful Dead concert head-to-toe, the line would stretch around the moon, and about halfway back. And nobody would complain!”

These few reviews are from other recordings…
OMG what a amazing audience recording!! Wow this is just as good as it gets. Fantastic show too, i was
there. Jerry grilled fish on a Weber grill during setbreaks on the the side of the stage. Thank you

REVIEW: good for 88
this is a great show musically, with “fire” “watchtower” and morning dew” as highlights.this gets a 4 as
garcia’s voice is more off than on. musically a 5, and the sound quality is a 5. wow is rite
Holy cow where did this one come from? Dam not sure it sounded this good that day in the Kaiser itself.

Great morning dew. There are some uneven parts to this but very listenable indeed – Phil steps up in
gimme some lovin and the scarlet>fire playin is hot as is stagger lee, candyman.

REVIEW: candyman!
I search high and low for sick candyman’s and this one is up there….great fret work by garcia, a few extra
fills on vocals makes t soulful. so far, so good in terms of sound, I would give it a 4. a little hallow, but a
solid board.
jerry seems to be enjoying himself, playing rapid scales and hollering a little bit…always fun to hear. check
it: Fire shreds!!! my lord.

REVIEW: Great show
i love the vibe of this show.

REVIEW: 3-16-88
Jerry plays some amazing riffs. Sound quality is allright after the first song or two. Jerry forgets a lot of lyrics.
