Location: Outside on the lawn, slightly right of center about 30 ft from the repeaters.  The sound was incredibly clear - of course you can hear the rain during quieter parts of the second set, but for those there it just adds to the intensity of the listening experience.

Notes: This is one of the most memorable Grateful Dead concerts I've attended. The weather and band were incredibly fierce.  There are so many vivid memories of this night - of course the intense weather; there were record rainfall amounts set and huge bright lightning bolts filling the sky. The thoughts that go through ones head when lightning is crackling all over the place and you have an aluminum microphone stand (lightning arrestor) up in the air with a tape deck wired directly to your chest! Were we dedicated, insane or both? I remember the microphones owner dressed up in sailing foul weather gear looking like a mad ship captain around the mast -"ah mate bring it on"..   There were others patched out of me and another rig or two set up during the 1st set but they all bailed shortly into the 2nd set or during the break.

During the 2nd set there were a few times when the power would go out, it's pretty wild to listen to since you can hear the stunned audience come up from the silence, then the power comes on with a speaker pop and Phil just wails!

Walking out I was completely stunned by the whole experience, getting into my car and trying to find a hotel since there was no way we were going to try to camp that night?    Sorry for taking so long to share it with you.

Flaws: We didn't record drums since that would've taken one extra flip and with the weather
