“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.

No reviews of this recording, but quite a few of the others, considering there are some sixteen versions inthe Archive…REVIEW: Give it just a minute and it will Blow Away..God mix of tunes in the first set and like the placement for Foolish and Victim. While I remember thisnight for the Dark Star I had completely forgotten the Estimated> Blow Away. It is kinda funny how themind plays tricks over time. After this show I got a ride from a brother who worked with primates inOklahoma to the St. Pete shows. This sounds pretty good for an audience recording.
REVIEW: scary jerryive had second set for 20 years now. Now reading reviews my feelings were confirmed. it was scary Jerry.at night this was a spooky desolate tape. blow away was awesome, and kinda scary. i thought the best ofthe dark stars that year, although Meadowlands incredible, but both better than Hampton. Maybe bestStella ever w/Bob’s spooky whale sounds. . Good to see my suspicions confirmed. THe dead couldskullfuck ya like no other. I remember 88 and the satellite gun references (by crowd). I remember the “noguns 89 tees.
REVIEW: Though I’m not generally fond of late-period Dark Stars,this one is pretty psychedelic! The show in general is good but not spectacular.
REVIEW: the duo that rocked out the ’80sit should go without sayin..but to assure any skeptics..BRENT FUCKIN ROCKS!…and when Jerry and hethrow lead to and fro and smiLe at ones performance…get “BETTER”..simpLy becuz the other wills it tothe other…and Blow Away is no exception to all the above….the nites that Brent “stops”the band..to givea lesson on ReaL LoVe are the niTes when that itself “reaL Love”…is seen onstage more so thanotherz…brent shines like a keyboard god on this tune..its true emotion spilling into song and dance andthe crowds intenseity growz while the boys and jer throw aside any hesitation and let him know howmuch ReaL LoVe..we all have for him
REVIEW: Creepy second setnice and creepy
REVIEW: Despite the hype,I would say the whole show was good but not spectacular. That said, the second set list was certainly cool& unusual, and the Dark Star (though fairly typical late period, aka not that good) has an extremelypsychedelic and long spaceout jam into Drums.
REVIEW: nice soundnice phil. nice & creepy too
REVIEW: a prayer to Dave LemieuxDear Dave, Please release this show in its entirety on the Dave’s Picks seriesDo I hear an “Amen”??….
REVIEW: kick myself bout this one…I was old enough to attend concerts when this show came to town & back then I wasn’t that into the Deadand I missed it!! I do remember the kids who went talking about it at school. Wish I had a time machine…
REVIEW: The Last Epic Dark StarAnd a killer show to boot.
REVIEW: 10-26-89Excellent. I love ’89. I have a lot of shows in ’89 that I like better than this but Dark Star made me givethis 5 stars. Excellent sound too. Thanks Joani, Paul and of course Mr. Charlie Miller.
You get the picture…
