“Yesterday’s Dead Today”, Monday, May 29th, 7-9pm
Written by Mark Binder on Sunday, May 28, 2017
“There Is NOTHING like a Grateful Dead concert!”
I was searching for a tune to open the show tonight honoring our departed
troops, and found nothing really i was happy with. But I kept thinking of this:
To all those who have given their lives in service of the country, we salute
you, and I remind the rest of us:
“…’Forward’ he cried from the rear, and the front rank died.
Generals sat and the lines on the map moved from side to side…
”Pink Floyd, “Us And Them”
and then gregg passed away, so here is Jerry with the ABB at the Cow Palace,

REVIEW: killer FOB
Say what you want about ’95, this was a fun day and this is a sweet recording of it. Muchas gracias to
the taper (and all tapers everywhere).
REVIEW: Latter Day Saint of Circumsatnce
Sassy, energetic show , considering all the negative circumstance surrounding the summer of 95.
Stunning FOB. First set is one of the best of the last they left us with.
REVIEW: good stuff
smokin BTW, and Phil was Phil on the TTB. Overall a good show – hey, it was 95, that being said, a
very good show.
REVIEW: Sweet, especially Terrapin to Liberty
Very nice FOB recording of a strong effort in the waning days. Not a lot extra special early on but the
playing holds together and Music Never stops points towards lift-off. You can tell the ideas are there
for Jerry, though the technique is somewhat inhibited (Everybody’s a critic!) Shakedown is too
rambling for my taste (East Coast head)but I really dig the set from Terrapin through the end. Not
rushed, nicely paced. Fitting for the time and place, it tends to be somber and reflective on Jerry’s
behalf, but he pulls out a pretty rockin’ Liberty encore. Days Between is a very nice showcase for
Vince’s piano skills and he has nice flourishes throughout. Sugar Mag – say no more – Bobby does
justice. Vocally, Jerry is warm and expressive and he was nailing the lyrics! Thanks to the taper for
sharing this – a very sweet memory of the laid back West Coast scene!
REVIEW: Good all around.
Band sounds really good for 1995! Great recording too!!!
REVIEW: Adios amigos
This was my last Grateful Dead show at the end of a five night run in Seattle and Portland. I had fun,
but the band was no longer fully holding my attention. Walking toward the river from the venue after
the show I said to my buddy, “I think I’m done. I don’t need to see anymore Dead shows.” This was
after touring on and off since the ’70’s. Little did I know at the moment that it really would be my last. I
actually felt guilty for saying it after Jerry passed.
REVIEW: Better than anything on the summer tour!!
While no searing Jerry leads, still some decent playing. And good tempo on tunes like Jack-A-Roe and
Direwolf and Shakedown. Actually think Jerry’s Shakedown lead sounds more like early 90’s than ’94
or ’95. At the end of the day, a very “listenable” show – – which is more than I can say for the 7 train
wrecks I saw on the summer tour!!
REVIEW: 30th Anniversary Tour
Of course, i was there!
REVIEW: my last show
after 13 years of seeing the dead, this was the final for me. thank goodness the post-space was as
strong as it was (though terrapin has some interesting moments). solid last time, days between is
haunting and features a lovely (albeit) short jam at the end, sugar mags smokes.
REVIEW: Wind in the willows
I remember that windswept sound being present throughout the show, and it comes through clearly on
this recording, too! I’d also love to hear a board – this was my last show as well. I was on the rail from
Space through Sugar Mags, right in front of Garcia. Not a bad way to remember the old guy. Days
Between was excellent and really stuck with me for a long time.
