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”

Reviews from this particular recording:
REVIEW: Finally a soundboard

Reviews from other recordings. Again, seems to be a very under-listenend-to show:
REVIEW: hot show
this show is hot.they are all jammin throught out the whole show. i loved jerry’s rips in china
cat,he,s gone was hot. i,ll give a 5 star for song selection!!!!
REVIEW: That’s about right.
REVIEW: Orange County is such a Hole
But the Dead brightened it this day. I was at this show and the ones in ’85 and had a great time at
all 3 shows. This was just such a phenomenal era of the Dead, the band was so good and the
scene was great.
REVIEW: With big help – it was fantastic!
First and ever show with the Grateful Dead, all the way from Denmark 🙂 with big help from…
good guy from gas-station… and with his Lada drow my from ? (the gas-station) to warmup-party
at the college, and there after to the concert at Irivne Meadows… and back to the gas-station!!!
Thanks. I’m dreaming back 🙂 Let the music live – and all evil die!!
REVIEW: bread crumb
I never liked this venue very much. Saw CSN here in the fall of 1982 too. One recollection of
note was that you could hear the lions roar from the adjacent Lion Country Safari. If I remember
correctly, the Who played the coliseum the night after this show making for an interesting three nights.
