Written by Mark Binder on Sunday, October 16, 2022
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”

REVIEW: Photos of this concert
Hi Folks, I was at both Dead shows (’82 and ’83) at Santa Fe Downs. My mother, Anne Van
Arsdall Poore, took the photos for the Los Alamos Monitor, I think. I wasn’t really that into the
Dead, but went along just for fun, with my Mom and Uncle and brother. Anyhow, enjoy the shots!
One of the best of ’82 imo. Thank you.
REVIEW: Missed the first time around…not the next infinity!
At 16 years old in Albuquerque, my friends were more turned on to the Grateful Dead than I was,
since, as a teenager, I liked punk rock. I spat a haughty “pshaw” at the mention of a trip to Santa
Fe to catch the “immortal Dead” so I missed what was in store….until I turned on to the GD in
college and, lo and behold, the Downs at Santa Fe was my first ever bootleg tape. I’ve
internalized all of it since, except, of course, those juicy d/s bits that the tape, bless its heart, was
too small to contain. Would that my mind had been ready so that I could have been there!
one of my first boot tapes. always loved this one.very hot for a early 80’s.way underated, even in
the old tape trading days nobody ever had this on thier tapelists. i always wondered why this
show was not more popular! GREAT 1st set with (LOCAL COLOR TUNES)coming after
candyman. 2nd even better. by the way jerry fans, the man sounds great after the first verse of 1/2
step (minor sound adjustment)& i actually think there is smoke bioling off his guitar for most of
the show. the band really shines on this one! one of those gems i find myself digging out of my
collection quite often. well recorded aud.
REVIEW: Must check in on this one
This show is significant in that the boys were never the same after this show. Garcia was “nobody
home” at the year end Oakland shows having finally fallen prey to the Persian. The band
over-compensated for his lack of focus for the next two years. At this show, Jerry’s voice was
strong and the band was clearly pumped to play in Sante Fe. Significant show in Dead history.
REVIEW: excellent recording
Although it exhibits a few tech glitches, this is just an excellent recording of a really fun show.
This recording has the same outdoor vibe that Manor Downs (7/31/82) has; mellow but fantastic
energy throughout the performance; something about racetracks I guess. The show has some real
gems; listen to minute 3:00 – 4:00 during the space segment, into Throwing Stones. It is
absolutely sublime Jerry, with Bob or Brent throwing in a little slide note over and over; very
cool; Then into GDTRFB-Wheel_Other One-Wharf Rat-Good Lovin; whew, I’m exhasuted
listening to this. Phil just ROARS into The Other One, igniting the rest of the guys into a frenzy,
an excellent version. Real nice sound too. A must have by all means.
REVIEW: one of the best!
26 years ago, right about this time of the afternoon, we were all basking in the late afternoon
low-angle sun on the plateau south of town. The Grateful Dead were playing one incredibly fine
show. We were all happy, smiles everywhere. One of the best shows of 1982, and one of the best
shows of the early 80s.Listening to it today I couldn’t be happier that I made the sacrifices I did
back them to be on the road seeing GD shows. Cause every now and then one like this happened
and it kept you going forward in your life, inspired by positive energy and pure joy.
killer show, excellent recording…..
REVIEW: First Show
This show has wonderful energy and is full of Jerry magic. Mississippi-Franks!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was fifteen…
REVIEW: WE STOPPED OVER IN SANTA FE
What a great show, and the sound is great as well.. This was the day that The Who, and Jethro
Tull were playing at Folsom Field at CU in Boulder (my hometown at the time), and half of
Boulder showed up in Santa Fe instead!!! The first set was just epic and the second set was even
better. 11 songs in the second set, 6 after the drums!!! Brent added a special Santa Fe verse to
Never Trust a Woman. This was the 10TH Throwing stones in a row, they would eventually
reach 12 consecutive shows. After drums is awesome, it was equal to 2 seperate shows of after
drums, Throwing, wheel, GDTRFB, Other one, wharf Rat, Good Love. Just a great Fall day in
REVIEW: One for the books
I think this show was a “you had to be there show” like so many other classics but the rainbow,
the rain, Phil’s sombreero hat, the roses at the opener, the campground,front and jerry doesn’t get
any better. Oh I forgot the setlist which keep just kept going and going. It was powerful I think
the China Doll really came through best of all. Music opener with all the roses or tulips being
thrown on stage into they love each other to start getting things into gear. THen the China/rider
set closer I think that was after it rained? Then the coup de gras Saturday Night Cold Rain
encore. You had to be there!!!!
REVIEW: Grateful Dead 1982
The concert was a little fuzzy as my sister was married the night before the show and I think I
was still up from that. This recording sure brings back memories and the pictures! I think I can
spot me and my friends in one photo. Great show, high times. FUN!
