45th Anniversary of the GAMH "One From The Vault" show.

 

Just about a perfect show. And the one that broke the vault open, thank God. 36 Dick's Picks, 35 Dave's, 17 Road Trips, countless box sets and Rhino single show releases., and no signs of stopping. Love Live The Dead!

Been making my way through the May 77 box that got released a couple of years ago, so good.  Hadn't heard any shows between 5/9 and 5/18 and they're all keepers.

Random thoughts/memories:

  • There were not many people on my high school into the Dead so it was fun to see this scene
  • People cheered loudly at the "I wish I was a headlight" line in I Know You Rider
  • I knew drums/space was a thing but didn't quite get it
  • I was surprised at how quiet it was during parts of Wharf Rat
  • And I really remember leaving and wanting to see them again

I never felt unsafe at a show, but I have seen a lot sketchy stuff. I can see all the stuff mentioned in that article happening. 

 

Also, I have been to a few Rainbow gatherings in the early 90's. One can tell some of the people there were evading the law and very distrustful. My buddy was thinking about doing a paper for college on the community, focusing on the structure and all. We brought it up and most of the people we talked to, spoke up and discussed it a candid manner, while others would just walk off. Cameras were highly discourage, also. They were always enjoyable, though, and I never felt unsafe. 

 

At one of the gatherings, I did witness a group of locals in a pick up truck ( I am assuming locals, since we were in Southern, IL and I know they do not take too kindly to hippie transients) , fire bombed a parked car.

Dave's Picks 37 just announced: 4/15/78 plus unidentified "bonus material" from some other show on the same tour.

No word on what Vol. 38 w/bonus disc will entail.

I think I'm gonna sit next year out. I have more than enough of this stuff, and can always buy 7/18/72 a la carte if they ever release it.
