REVIEW: So Good!
This is fantastic show and I’d say better that the previous night’s performance (although if you haven’t heard
that Dancin’->Wharf Rat->Dancin’or that monster Scarlet, do yourself a favour). Things start fairly average
but by Lazy Lightning it really kicks in. The second set is off the charts and it’s played to perfection. The
Eyes -> Music Never Stopped is incredible and flows together so well that it makes me wonder why they
never did this again (to my knowledge).
REVIEW: nice bass
wow listen to phil throwing down on eyes… so sick
REVIEW: THE BEST SHOW I EVER SAW…
1974-1985 were my years. These 2 LA shows were the Dead’s first after their hiatus after the ‘Wall of Sound’
tours in 1974. The principals remained active during that time. Garcia and Weir toured SoCal repeatedly
with JGB and Kingfish, and each released an album (“Reflections” and “Kingfish,” respectively). And of
course the band found time to put together “Blues for Allah” during that time. Anyway, the Dead were back
and we were ready! On this (second) night, the band played SO HARD in the second set jam that they had
nothing left for an encore! The applause was deafening! They raised all of the stage curtains so you could
see to the back brick wall across the stage, to try to clue us in that the band really wasn’t coming back! Didn’t
stop us. The audience stayed and applauded for at least 15 minutes with the house lights up. Just an
incredibly organic show that brought everything together. I chased that magic for another 10 years. I found
flashes of it (Terrapin on 12/31/78 Winterland closing show comes to mind), but never repeated for an entire
show. Spend some time with your eyes closed listening to ‘The Other One –> Comes a Time’. Still brings
tears to my eyes. Can’t believe its been over 35 years…
REVIEW: COMES A TIME
Great overall show…as I was zoning out on work, the end jam of Comes a Time snapped my zone, and
demanded listening. Pretty powerful all through the outro, with Keith and Jer trading licks…well played!
REVIEW: you know in spite of all you gained..
12 songs in the 1st set which does cover lots of ground. They seem to be searching for the sound at times
like in Bertha, brief sound drop-out in Lazy lightning. Good Supplication jam sets up that big Sugaree.
Great 2nd set list. (those patches are rough when they hit but better than the alternative) MORE DEAD!
REVIEW: Another ’76 Lovely
This is a solid and good sounding ’76 show, but just when the source changes from SBD to
AUD…boom…into Franklin’s Tower. There’s something about that energetic riff. My favorite intro into
Franklin’s. And c’mon Dead nerds, you know you know shit like this. It’s one I keep on coming back to.
Long live Jerry.
REVIEW: first show
omg I was 14 years old This was my first show ..omg I so rememeber it Yes I dooooo.
I fell so hard in love with the music the energy and every thing,,DID I forget to mention Bobby’S NAME lol
,,what A fun fun time to start seeing these guys..I miss it,,But so glad I have the memory in my heart and
REVIEW: 1977 starts here
This is another excellent fall 76 show, easily the equal of the great east coast shows from September. In total
agreement with the reviewer below, this is a hard hitting show – Garcia had just switched amps, and the new
heavier sound was dialed in. Highlights are an absolutely insane Sugaree, one of the best I’ve heard, and a
second set which smokes from the Eyes opener through the fantastic Other One>Comes a Time>Franklin’s
REVIEW: Smiling Green buddha
This show is notable to me for the beautiful Music Never Stopped (Jerry floats like a bird over the mountain
range created by the band) and because of a story told by a friend who was at the show: During the second
set during the jam after He’s Gone, the green lights dancing on Jerry’s amp formed a smiling Buddha that
stayed in that form for a good five minutes. Good ole Grateful magic.
REVIEW: my 3rd show
After the who and the dead the previous week in Oakland I heard they were playiong at the Shrine in LA. I
hopped on a plane and went to both shows. It was automatic for me, no decision making required. I did not
even know that people went on tour. My friend Robert Klien went to the box office before the show and
asked the woman behind the glass “can we trade in our balcony seats for floor seats and pay the extra dollar?”
She said “no problem, how many seats do you need?” Robert said “six”, she said “I hope 8th row is OK that’s
the best I can do”. Things only got better after that. Best (most intense) Other One I ever saw (580 shows). If
you don’t think this is one the best shows try listening to it on some quality headphones.
