Watched that video yesterday.  Brent looks rough, but is playing his heart out, literally playing for life.  Bobby, Mickey and Phil's body language hint that something is not all right.  Jerry is looking and playing great.  How quickly it all unraveled.

So bummed you didn't make it, Clifton Hanger.

Good memories of that show at Rich Stadium. This was the show where I drove all the way to within sight of the stadium and we suddenly couldn’t find our tickets.  We had left them on the fridge at home, doh!  I immediately turned around drove back to Rochester, grabbed tickets, drove back to Buffalo and walked in just as Hell In A Bucket started.  We missed CSN but the rest of the night was awesome. 

It’s too bad Brent doesn’t do the end part on this version, where his fist is in his chest and he needs real love. Those are my favorite Blow Away’s. 

that was a good one.

Big time GD rock and roll show. Bombastic. 

No video of Brent pounding his chest but I have always been partial to this version.

Best set of Grateful Dead that I ever saw


Brent in mid song (1st set cuz it was still daylight)walked away from his keyboard to the side stage, blew chunks then sat back down and rocked out like a rock star. To his credit he didn't linger dry heaving.


Bad oysters in buffalo

Great show..  high energy

I ate buffalo wings and went to the falls before the show.

"Best set of Grateful Dead that I ever saw"

A friend says that the Dark Star from this show had him scared shitless.

This Buffalo show was really powerful and tight but I was disappointed with the lack of jams.

It's called living on the material dualistic plane.

The thing a lot of people that take psychedelics forget is that they always have to return to earth.

That is rich coming from the old guy with such an addled mind that he fell for the Russians' Seth Rich conspiracy hook, line, & sinker.

Yeah, LOL - I won't be taking any direction on "reality" from Thom's diseased and decrepit brain.  Thanks tho!


KK, I've been thinking of you, wondering if you're okay and wishing you were around. Nice to see you.

That was my last Brent show,,,freakin sweet show. But It was never the same again,,,,

What Sigmund said ....

Same here.

Always enjoyed my trips to Orchard Park...

Wish there was a recording of CSN opening from that night...

Thanks kk!

The proshot of Blow Away is so incredible.  I wish they would release the full show.
