“My memories of the setlists are quite sporadic, although, these being my first Live Dead shows, as I heard each tune for the first time, it was if another Veil of Illusion was being removed… like stumbling upon a Burning Bush and seeing the Face of God, or walking on a beach and finding the Seashell of Buddha. Those memories are indelibly etched forever.”

Beautiful audio of a beautiful show, thanks Bear.  Forget the hours, whatever that means… Good advice, I’d say.  Also dig the gentle strains of the only live Rosemary (listed as “unknown” in Deadbase; this recording only came to light in 2006).  Also, never before have I thought “And We Bid You Goodnight” sounded like street-corner doo-wop.  But here it does.  This is a lovely show, if frought with some technical difficulties (which leads to some fun, if frustrated banter).  I’d recommend dialing it up while you watch the Tigers slam the Yanks.
