There are no reviews of this particular recording. These are from others:
REVIEW: It’s hard not to like this one …!
It’s not the greatest Las Vegas show ever but, one of the better ones! I’m still kind of partial to the very
first time they ever played in Las Vegas, at least, in the medium to late eras, at the Aladdin Theatre!
It’s hard not to like this one, with a song list like this with “Help On The
Way”->”Slipknot!”->”Franklin’s Tower”, “It Must Have Been The Roses”, “Queen Jane
Approximately”, “Picasso Moon”, “So Many Roads”, and of course my first of only two “Attics Of
My Life”, not to mention “Spoonful”->”The Other One”->”Morning Dew” & “Baba
O’Riley”->”Tomorrow Never Knows” with Steve Miller, Wowie Zowie!
REVIEW: Excellent 90’s show from grateful Dead
Vince, Jer, Bob, Bill, Micky & Phil performing a near flawless & good-vibed desert airiated show.
Many times I wandered to Sam Boyd’s Bowl, but missed out on THIS one!
REVIEW: Love this show
Keep coming back to this one …. great set lists …. this one should be released as a D.P.
REVIEW: The Deal went down this weekend!
The desert wind blew the clouds away to reveal the night sky as Jerry strummed the first chords to
Attics of My Life. Yes, it was one of those nights. Steve Miller, who would open all the stadium
shows on the upcoming summer tour, sat in for Spoonful through Morning Dew. By the time attics
was played it was night. Steve miller opened and by the 2nd set the night sky was approching.
REVIEW: Roads Saint
Jerry belting out so many roads at the end was emotional into an awesome Saint of circumstance
REVIEW: great show
Defintely the capstone of the weekend. You could hear a pin drop during Attics. H>S>F and
Scarlet>Fire in the same show? Yikes!
REVIEW: This is a must
A very magical show. Every song is spectacular. One of the best Roses ever.
Attics is overpowering.
REVIEW: SO MANY ROADS!!
Best show ever in Las Vegas. Sick So Many Roads. My favorite! And the Attics was sooo sweet….get
REVIEW: a keeper
Besting the great sat show, the boys are on top of their game. Surprise guest Steve Miller adds some
noise at the end of the second set. I remember ole Jer giving a mock Pete Townshend Mindmill
REVIEW: 90’s Dead
I’ll admit I saw some uninspired mail it in 90’s shows. This was not one of them. I don’t agree with
some of the reviews because in my opinion no band in rock n roll history has put themselves out there
like the Dead did. Can you think of another band EVER that has every show, rehearsal, or sound check
recorded for dissection? I can’t tell you where The Rolling Stones were on 5-31-92, but you can see
where the Grateful Dead were!! The good,the bad, the ugly. This was the good.It was an amazing
You get the idea…
