This was one of the first tapes I got in college.......still the one I listen to the most! Wish they officially release it (or would have released it as a Dick's Picks).....I've never heard them just rip through Eyes like this show.
Yes this was the one. I too had to leave due to a miscalculation of how much beer I could drink. It wasn't the one that changed my life. It just changed my drinking habits at shows altogether. The Uptown was amazing! That much I do remember!
I was in the front row of the balcony on Jerry's side (when he was on the left if you're looking at the stage). I had been into the band pretty heavily for a good year and a half by then and needless to say, this was about as close to pure heaven as I could imagine. Small theatre, Nothing obstructing my view looking down on the band, sweet sweet jamming, sweet sweet ballads, and from my experienced friends (already been to many shows) a "killer" show to boot.
There's no question, this was a dandy. It took me 7 years to get a copy of it, and ya know, I think I'm going to play it right now. (of note, my daughter Hanna's first show in utero (mom's tummy) was on my 30th birthday (6/25/88 Buckeye Lake), and her first show out and in diapers was August 19 1989 (nine years to the day after my first show. just one of those strange "dead" coincidences.)
Now I'm hoping she'll go with me to see Ratdog and Govt Mule in Eugene (she attends U of Oregon) in June. She's 19 now. Now that would be cool....what is it about the number 19? ; )
GET THIS SHOW IF YOU DON'T HAVE IT! . : )
