The Rochester Community War Memorial Auditorium was a venue the Dead played at several times. It was where I saw my second ever GD show, the one where I "got it" September 2, 1980. Thanks to Rick Cantor it was not my last! To return there with recording gear excited me to no end and as Rochester is about a 90 minute drive from Syracuse many of us made the trip. For some reason Tom and I were late but Olvy, Mike and others had set up in the sweet spot, about 65 feet from stage. The venue was all GA back then and the floor was covered with cheap fiberboard commonly in use to cover the ice of the hockey floor which was down as it was still hockey season for the minor league team The Rochester Americans. It was hot and stifling in the arena and we stayed as close to the floor as possible; I recall some folks laying down between sets to cool off.

The set list is classic 83 Dead. First Set Shakedown and Little Red Rooster were atypically lengthy versions while the Lazy Lightning > Supplication was inspired. Brent throws down some lyrics and organ action for Rooster to the delight of the crowd. While relatively short the set was satisfying with excellent highlights. Jerry's mic must have gone out at the start of Brown Eyed Women, Jerry and Phil play some sweet licks while it is out and the crowd gets revved up when the crew gets it back working.Brent added to the Stranger second set opener with smokey "crazy night" scat singing.Jerry delivered Ship Of Fools with dripping vocals and sweet guitar.Maybe You Know (on the tape case as: Baby You Know How I Feel) was the band putting up with Brent's need to sing originals which ultimately did wind up with 2-3 top notch tunes (Tons of Steel IMO); however this was not one of them. Still fun for this show and I think the 3rd on that East Coast run.

The He's Gone has some downright pretty vocal harmonies and is just a killer version. This morphs into this odd arrangement of Bob rapping now named Bobstar which according to deadbase was only played 3 times (which is cut on this version). Tom was patched into some 421's next to our stand. The tonal differences between this and the Beyer M201 recording we also made are notable. Much less mid range and smoother bass harmonics. The Baby Blue on this recording stands out for its' crisp drums and up front guitar tone; listen for Bob's chordal touches under the bass and guitar leads.

This was one long second set, including encore it was 1 hour 45 minutes.
