This was my first show. Cowboy Neal was at the wheel.
This was my first first show. The Truckin' is incredibly short. A nice sound check for the beginning of a long modern day career at the Omni. Due to really bizarre circumstances, we ended up in the front row. As a newbie, I recognized only a handful of songs and Jerry winked at us during Black Muddy River.
This was my first show as well. Not to pester you, but this new Dead site opens up all kinds of easily researched scenarios. I noticed that we both started at the same show, followed similar paths and coincidentally were both at Shoreline in '94.
Was it just me or do you remember this show being incredibly LOUD?
We drove in to atlanta from ole miss to see our first show, we get onto the floor by just walking in after checking cameras, just walked right onto the floor found some seats and did not leave the whole show. what struck me was how much better the band sounded live than anything I had ever heard before, blew me away to see quad sound for a concert. after the show we just went right by the circus outside, we looked but did not understand what the scene was about. we later learned and have not been the same since.
peace to all,
What a long strange trip this show was.....
My first show too! I guess this was the beginning for many In the Dark era southern deadheads. I'll never forget the sight of Jerry holding his guitar vertical during the Half-Step jam. I do recall Space being much louder than subsequent shows (to the point of almost having to cover my ears) and Truckin may have been short, but the segue into Miracle shook the house.
Like many of you, I've heard many a Half-Step...this one's got to rank among the absolute best. Granted, you've got like their sound at this particular time (marked especially by changes in the sound of the percussion section and Brent, and Jerry's use of MIDI). But one can hardly fault Jerry for not trying...his solo (long and intricate) has not one but two truly intense 'peaks'. The Looks Like Rain that followed is also remarkable. Peace, Harper
I drove down from the Nashville area with a good friend of mine and was totally blown away. Truly unforgettable!!! This show made me a Deadhead for life.
I was lucky enough to find a bootleg of this show. What a CRAZY AWESOME night! Do any of you remember the cop on the bench when the show let out? Someone through a pack of fire crackers behind him and when they went off he busted his ass... I've never laughed so hard in my life ;) "Looks Like Rain was epic at this show" This show made me a Dead Head for life as well. I've always said, "Everybody likes The Dead, some just don't know it yet".
I look around and all I see are self centered people stairing back at me. I look in the mirror and see the same, so tell me, who's to blame?
