Written by on Sunday, October 6, 2019

“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!”

Grateful Dead

October 7, 1994

Special Thanks to Aldo Torre from Italy for the DAT Clone!

Comments from the transfer-master(s):
This DAUD is awesome! We wish we knew the rig! Who ever did this recording was VERY GOOD at
recording this show! We listened to it and we’re beside ourselves at the quality of this recording! The clarity is
amazing and the lack of crowd noise is remarkable for an FOB. GOOD LUCK trying to find a better Daud of
this show! ENJOY ! ! !

REVIEW: my first and only dead show
this show holds special meaning in my heart, it marks my first show out of nearly 130 some shows in 10 years
of traveling with bands. i wish i could have seen more live dead though.

REVIEW: get it
another killer philly show! Awesome Dew my eyes well up every time I hear Jerry wailing on the I geuss it
doent matter anyway. Great recording really captures to moment. Close your eyes ; it will take you back….

REVIEW: third show wow
Ok here we go these three shows were the last string of three in a row that were awesome. I stand to say that the
Dead changed over the years and if you could make it to show then ur lucky to have experienced the magic
.Whether it was 60’s 70’s 80’s or the 90’s we were their guests.I strong support Jerry through out his entire

REVIEW: 50th Show at the Spectrum
This was the Dead’s 50th show at the Spectrum. I still have the concert shirt. They unvealed the tye dye flag that
night which I believe still hangs from the rafters. While the show was a well played one as almost all Philly
Spectrum shows were, I waited all night for them to break out something special rather than the run of the mill
set list that they wound up playing. The JBG encore was a real let down too. However, I won’t let my
disappointment from that night hinder the fact that this is still a great show and it gets the 4 stars it deserves.
Thanks to everyone involved in this site for allowing me to relive a lot offorgotten great memories.
