Wunderland, did you and Denver Man catch Phil at the same time for photos? Looks like Red Rocks? Caught up w/ one of my favorite Eyes of the World from Winterland in '74. Haven't listened to it since Speed of Light shows back in '87 at Hampshire College. What great jams. This version from Bears reels at about 10 min. in tape 2:
I've had to reload and mess w/ the play counter to bring the song all the way through, even then it cuts at 21:28, such a raw, good recording. Can it be heard in it's entirety on The Grateful Dead Movie? The other archive copies all seem to grow from Owsley's reels?
Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was at the same time (Phil's foundation meet&greet thingy), but at the time hadn't met denver man yet. danced on stage w/our shadows stretching up the rocks what seemed a mile high! The 74 show is sounding pretty durn swell.
Niceness! Sounds good, the shadows weren't the only thing a mile high . . . Always nice to meet Phil! Got to be on stage w/ him last year, though I didn't reach out as he was a little busy, and it just didn't go like that, I hope I'll get to see him again up close and personal, time to chill. 20th anniversary at the Greek '85 Phil rolled down the window of his limo. He asked "Well, what do you think?" "It was just great!" I suppose I could have elaborated, I wasn't just awe struck, I was dumbstruck by the vibes and experience of the show. I must have looked quite stoked as it was my first West Coast show w/ just a year of GD introduction in the East. Cross country road trip, on tour, taping the band, with my best friend, what a summer. I'd spent half the night in front of Phil shaking it down! After that '74 I wound up listening to most of good 'ole Barton Hall '77archive.org/details/gd1977-05-08.ecm33p....miller.117026.flac16
