My First Show
i had never listened to the GD much. a new friend of mine (rest in peace Peter) had
intro'd the band to me in high school. my college roommate was a Head. so
off I went not knowing my life would change forever. from the 1st notes of Jack Straw,
I knew this was not just another show. oddly enough, this is the best damn Truckin'
they ever played. Jerry windmilling like Townsend.
it's been a wild ride that I have never regretted. the light still shines. thanks to all
i've encountered along the way.

RE: Extra Long Drum Break
I probably have this all wrong and backwards, but the '78 tour is the first time I remember seeing what was referred to at the time as the (original) Rhythm Devils -- the entire band would play percussion instruments. Wonderful.

Good Ole' Grateful Dead
Goddamn that Wharf Rat just chills my spine. Totally just about trippin' today here at work listening to the Archives. Love these guys & girl.

Unfortunately, Jerry's mic does not kick in until
"Peggy O," but the rest of the show makes up for it. Incredible sound and performance. I love this spring tour, despite its occasional lackluster shows.

Wish Betty had stayed on board.
I love the crisp clean sound of these boards that make shows come alive on your speakers! Especially a great show like this hidden gem. Energy and dynamics. Drummers on fire.And what's with the 25 min.drums? Wow!
