The biggest "mind blown" show I ever attended.

Dark Star embodies the spirit of open ended

Grateful Dead music and the jumping off point

of many a journey into the unknown.

I spent the evening within 5 rows of the stage

on Jerry's side, unsure if I was still on this planet.

I believe some of the best modern Grateful Dead

music was performed between these Hampton shows

and Brent's death the following summer.


Praise DSO.

That show is special. Can’t imagine what that must’ve felt like. The death don’t gives me chills just listening on headphones.

One of their greatest pranks. It fooled me. I missed those shows. I was listening to this show this morning, just dreaming about what it would have been like to be there, let alone fifth row, Jerry’s side. The band was huge then, unstoppable.

I was in attendance at most of the Hampton shows from '83 - '88, but I unfortunately missed the infamous Warlocks shows in '89.


Epic shows indeed!

    • That Lucky ‘ol Sun

      A song that for me totally embodies the relationship between two incredible talents that speak to one another thru their instruments. They both really shine in this one. Heard Jeff do it last year, I think Atlanta, and he fucking killed it.  Makes me emotional to hear Jerry sing it during this era. He was awesome.

      I did both those jgb merriweather shows, alpine and poplar creek. Horn hat AKG 460's > dbx224(battery converted) >d5. The dixie at merriweather, the lonesome at Alpine and the let's spend at poplar were choice. Heading to Louisville this weekend for Uli jon roth , closest thing to hendrix I've ever seen. My first deal was when jg opened for fz August 1984 in Chicago. the studio version is a good listen.

      I love this song. I love the record version, and I love how it changed over the years. There were more than a few hot ones in 1983-1984, then while always good, it seems that 1989 brought out extra hot ones again. I love this one with JGB, its a toss up between this one and the Alpine Valley shows from the summer which I like best from that year.

      Has DSO ever played this song? I would love to hear it live
    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie
      By: goganious · 02/09/2019
      I once bought a kitten and he just kept meowing and meowing. He talked quite a bit. Then I started stringing up my guitar that evening, and he came over and started pawing at the frets, meowing meowing meowing. I looked at this overly talkative creature who was now trying to play his dad's guitar, and the name was obvious at once: Arlo.  12 years later, he still talks a lot. Love Arlo Guthrie. Such a unique and funny personality. Have seen him a few times. He always puts on a great show.
