    the last great nye show.

    10-31-83- my only st. stephen, although not a great one.

    8-29-83- pedestrian setlist, but you have to hear it to understand.

      Oh wait. ;)

      At least you caught a St. Stephen. Rumor has it they were sound checking it just prior to Jerry's death. ''93/94, maybe?

      Gawd, we really wanted that. In fact, there wasn't a 'head alive that didn't want to see them play it again, as you know.

      at that Solider Field show. First I had never really heard of the Dead. Also first live concert I'd been too. When I walked onto the infield, where we had tickets (not in seats) I was so overwhelmed I don't have words for it.

      Other then being really stoned I was by myself at this point. The two people I went with, they were upset the acid they bought wasn't what they wanted, so they were doing gosh knows what.

      I just recall I danced like nobody was looking. Something I do to this very day :)!
