This was my first trip to Hampton, I went there with my
girlfriend (now wife) and our friends Neil M. and Mike Rice (RIP
Mike).   On this, the first of a three-night run, I recall
getting into the show right when the doors opened, which was
VERY early in the day, several hours before show time, plenty of
time to set up, stretch out, and explore the coliseum. Hampton
is a great venue, with a round space-ship exterior, gently
sloping arena seating, and wide entryways and corridors.  It is
perfect for taping, and just as well suited for dancing around
the halls.  Anyway, we set up the taping gear just to the right
of the soundboard, and we had plenty of room to move about.
Between Mike, Neil, and us, we each took turns guarding the
recording gear, and we also took turns dancing madly around the
This was the first East-Coast appearance of the Grateful Dead
post-coma, and the crowd was very welcoming to the band.  I
recall on this particular night, the East Coast crowd was
treated to their first "When Push Comes To Shove"...and unlike
later years, the crowd on this night payed noticeably close
attention to this new song....even the hall dancers crowded into
the entryways to check it out...  The entire show was a lot of
fun, and the second set was a real blow-out, with the Sugar
Mag>Scarlet>Fire opening, all the way through to the baby Blue.
Well...I don't remember much else about this show, other than
what the set list tells.  I do recall staying in a hotel on
Virginia Beach, I believe it was off-season pricing, and we had
an ocean-front room...nice digs for us landlocked midwesterners.
I don't recall it, but my wife says we saw a ramp-riding
skateboarding demonstration of some kind near the hotel...
Well, Hampton did not disappoint, and, as is usually the case,
fun was had by all. Enjoy our recording of this fabulous
show....and Mike, wherever you are, thanks for the memories.
