“It is said that, if you lined up all those who have ever been to a Grateful Dead concert head-to-toe, the line would stretch around the moon, and about halfway back. And nobody would complain!”
WSLR is slowly coming back with a very sparse number of live studio programmers, albeit with veryspecific instructions as to how to protect both ourselves and our fellow WSLR volunteers.
And WSLR has now opened new Studio “B”, adjacent to the Joe Jacco On-Air Studio, wherein we willbe able to alternate shows in-house without programmer contacts.

Reviews from this recording:REVIEW: Sound qualityWow. Beyer Mics were the perfect match for this room.* for sound quality in electric sets alone.
REVIEW: grate pull in N Oreally nice sound.thank you for taping!!!!!
REVIEW: –Wonderful. I’ve been listening to the Dead on the Archive for about three years, and I’m pretty sure this isthe best sounding show I’ve ever heard, both in terms of sound and playing.
REVIEW: Love itLove it love love it. Great theater good sound.
Reviews from other recordings:REVIEW: great setlove the pre drums in this. sound is good for an aud also
REVIEW: Electric homecoming4 of us drove down from Virginia for these two shows. Scored 5th row center seats for both nights at thedoor. don’t even ask me how that’s possible. This show, the second night, was a monster. So muchemotion, the boys hadn’t played here since their bust 10 years earlier, and some of the locals were pissed,some came to mock the ‘country mellow dead’ and some came to bathe once again in the majesty of themusic. Sandoz helped. The whole second set is electric. The Terrapin just explodes, Truckin’ is powerpacked, Wharf Rat is gospel followed by soaring bombs, and then the wrap up, Sugar Mag into GoodLovin, left everyone spent. Brokedown encore, just exactly perfect.
REVIEW: 66 songs 2 nightsAll my friends were there and will tell you these were the 2 greatest shows every witnessed. The Musicenergy and venue were incredible. Fire on the mountain was a highlight. Not to mention the Acoustic setseach night.
REVIEW: bread crumbI have had this show’s acoustic set on tape (!?) for years. Nice to hear the whole show.
REVIEW: Thank you!My favorite Tennessee Jed ever. As it was mentioned before, it’s awesome to have a complete AUD fromthis show where the taper doesn’t talk the whole time.
REVIEW: New Orleans Or Bust…edGrate Taping Job Under Hostile Conditions. You’d Think The Dead Would Be A Li’l Easier On BustingPeople In New Orleans. I Was Told They Were Hauling ’em Out By The Handfuls. Mr. Stankiewicz AndBeyer As Usual Bring Home The Bacon, And This One Sizzles With Low Heat. So It Comes Out Just So.May The Goddess Bless The Tapers As They Have Blessed Us. Thanks, For Always Grateful.
