REVIEW: This show changed my life!!!
Oh my God the memories that come rushing back. I did not attend the show but had this boot for
years until it got pinched in college. Stanford shows always rock and this one fits the bill. Thank
you for this show!!!
These reviews are from another soundboard:
REVIEW: One Of The Best Dead Frost Runs
mmm… mmm… mmmmmm…Smmmmmmmokin’!
REVIEW: Not that I’ve listened to hundreds and hundreds of shows
Hey, I really like this show. Maybe not the absolute best, but wow … this is a great show. 1st set
is killer and the second set is great too. Compared to later shows, the voices are prime, and Jerry’s
playing is excellent. The sound quality for this show is great too. I can understand why so many
feel this is a diamond in the rough. One of the best Dead shows I’ve heard.
REVIEW: 10.10—all that needs to be said.
This show is on the top of people’s lists of favorite shows (especially for 82) for good reason. The
first set songs at the end of the set which once occupied the b-side (remember XL II-s) and had
garcia solos that were dead on perfect one song after the other. The fact that they were some of
my favorite song solos for him to play made it all the better. I’m talking about his solos on Far
from me, then Loser, then Looks, then Rider. Front to back, one of the best first sets of the year
and top twenty of the decade. The second set features my favorite sailor (for those of us who love
this song) and one of the most furious solos garcia ever took part in– at the end of saint. This one
is my favorite show from one of my favorite years.
REVIEW: this show is killer!!!
It has my favorite looks like rain where bobby starts ad libbing lyrics and swearing and generally
going nuts…..same with the sailor>saint… ad libbing going ballistic!! This is one of my favoritee
80’s dead shows…
REVIEW: Tennessee Jed 10-10-1982
It would be a glaring omission if no mention is made of the Tennessee Jed. It is really near album
perfection. My personal favorite version of T-Jed (over 11-25-1979). Looks Like Rain is dead on
and the Far From Me is the best version of this tune. In fact the whole show is pretty f*cking
REVIEW: subjective slippery slope.
I used to have Auds of this show. It was the only 82 show I had 10 years ago. It was a pleasure to
relisten, it really is a good show..I really miss the Aud source. They were the best auds I owned.
They really captured the ambience and friendliness of the frost. Satisfaction was made even
better with the audience singing along with Bobby ( no doubt consoling him over the loss of his
girliefriend) I miss the Auds.
REVIEW: Classic frost show
I dont think i’ve ever said too much about best ever because there are simply too many yet this
China/Rider excells further than most i’ve ever heard. A very odd sounding and strong 1st set.
Organic. The Sugaree has character and personality all it’s own. This Looks like rain is breath
taking. Could be my favorite next to Greek 89. It sounds muddy in all kinds of places but it’s a
very good sounding recording I think, it holds up and more, a thick bottom end. All sources of
this show have the same after effect from what iv’e heard. It could have been the mix that day,the
acustics or maybe the master tape is lost and a flawed and very good 2nd gen recording has been
floating around all these years. Playin jam is alot of fun. but I like the lst set much better.3.5 for
sound 4 for playing and 5 for many of the song versions.
2nd set was the first live show I ever heard on tape and I still regard it as the “classic live Dead”
sound. This set has such an eerie feeling to it, but maybe its just the tape? Don’t think so. Jerry is
extremely lucid, especially on the Playin’ Jam/Crazy Fingers. I love the way Jerry leads the band
through the Playin’ Jam, you can hear Bob and Brent trying to keep up with his melodies and
having trouble. Phil has no trouble on this night. Wish I had a time machine for this one.
You get the picture…
