The only review of this particular recording:
REVIEW: Vast sonic improvement
This version is a vast improvement over all the others available for this awesome show. The clarity
itself is a huge upgrade. There is a bit of buzz here and there, but that is what happened that day.
Thank you for the awesome job bringing these early 80’s SBDs to life. Keep going, they all need
your magic touch.
Reviews of other recordings:
REVIEW: Hells Angel during drums.
Listen to the drums and you can hear the motorcycle that was up on stage. One of the Hells Angels
brought his bike on stage and he wiped it with a cloth and reved the engine.
REVIEW: love that organ
never trust a woman still has that curious world of possibility feel to it. good show, but nothing
erally stands out to me.
REVIEW: What a Show!
Glad to see someone remember the Bike during the drum solo! I agree that it was so loud that it felt
like my whole body was going to explode. I think that they also set off the homemade hot air
balloons at this show – very cool.
REVIEW: bay be haven yourself
Damn thats a good Samson opener. No fear or hesitation as they demolish the first few bars, then
Bobby comes in with just the right amount of stuff, real reserved like. He tries that hundred pounds
of fury crap way to often. Here he gets you coming and going, cheers tender foot!
This was my return to The Grateful Dead shows after two years in the hospital and rehap. What a
great show they put on “for me” as a welcom back celibration. I felt like it was for me because they
were playing all the songs that fit together seamlessly. The fans were on their feet throughout the
show without sitting down except for the break. It was a beautiful day and sitting on the rocks with
my shirt off getting the setting sun was exceptional. I haven’t been to a show quite like this one and
I’ve been to around 300 shows. I drove Garcia when i had my limousine service for ten years and
every time I was back stage I got dosed! What a time it was.
REVIEW: The question is simply
why didn’t I hit the road with the band when I was 12? I did five years later so what’s the
difference? Missed this one, they sound great and Jer’s voice a bit off or maybe its sunday. the old
age of his late early 30’s 40’s, he was old then, not. He sounds like willie nelson on this one.
REVIEW: Rough Terrapin
Probably one of the shakiest Terrapins I’ve ever heard, seemed like Jerry was fading with the
words and some of the licks – maybe why Brent felt compelled to tack on the NTAW, which was
nicely done. Overall nice show!
REVIEW: brings back the full moon experience
It was my friends birthday, the weather was perfect and when the Dead stopped playing and we all
filed out… someone began howling at the moon. And there we were – hundreds of Deadheads with
our heads still twirling and full of music… standing in the street outside the Greek howling at the
moon! What a memory.
