Written by Mark Binder on Sunday, September 4, 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”

Reviews from other recordings:
REVIEW: Another Fantastic Show Nevermind “US”
…And the undeserved rub on the Grateful Dead that they sucked at the BIG shows like
Monterey and Woodstock. Here, another marvelous notch on the barrels. The Grateful Dead
never did a bad show.
REVIEW: US Festival (First of two) *Proofread Version
04/16/12 The first (of two) Steve Wozniak (Apple Computer co-founder) western
Woodstock-inspired major rock festivals with an impressive band line-up and production
venue! The Grateful Dead had the rise and shine Sunday breakfast time-slot. Bill Graham and
all of the bands were flown in via helicopter …There has to be video/films somewhere that
document these enormous events ~ of which offered four on-stage, live cam viewing screens
that were huge. Unless I’m mistaken, the state-of-the-art sound system was all designed by the

REVIEW: Great Show…….nice outdoor sound
Love the Shakedown on this, you can hear them pushing thier equipment to its limits, as all

this is an outdoor concert on a pretty day from the sound; everybody sounds like they feel good,
it’s snappy and extra tight. I really like this show, it has a singular feel to it, jazzy like, hard to
pin down…. try it, you’ll like it….
very fun, up-tempo show. bobby sings ” ever since she went and had a sex change” instead of
“living on reds, vitamin c, and cocaine” great shakedown, samson, china cat, i know you rider,
sugar magnolia, us blues, satisfaction actually the entire thing is great, one of my favorite
REVIEW: Breakfast in America
The Glen Helen Regional Park served a real nice Truckin’ breakfast that day with a funky
Shakedown Street, extra Sugaree and a whole lot of Satisfaction! Thank you band, road crew,
crowd, festival organisers, and all you bootiful people, listening out there!
