A bust out--just had to share this historic moment

#111280 2 years, 8 months ago
There are always a lot of good threads here, and at the expense of starting another, but
for the first time in 13 years, ladies and gentlemen, I give you Phil




The "let Phil sing campaign" paid off back in the early 80's, here's proof

Yeah, after all these years, this is why we're still here, isn't it?
IMHO it wasn't a very good first set, but when they ended it with this, well who was complaining?

Wow. Thank you! That was beautiful! I got chills alright. I love how Phil smiled after he sang what do you want us to do...I watched it again and he was smiling quite a bit. I love how he was like riding the waves of the crowds cheers throughout the song. Thanks again!

You're quite welcome. Almost 26 years later and this gets me a little choked up because it was one of those moments you waited for after all the miles traveled. We are a very lucky bunch to be able to share these kind of experiences.

Like the expression goes when describing this to someone:

"to those who know, no words are necessary; to those who don't know, there aren't enough words"

Those Hampton shows were as far South as I'd gotten at the time. Something about that southern hospitality that's good. Although I managed to miss the Warlocks shows, all the preceding Hampton shows were top notch. Not counting the massive door crash one year, pretty amazing the freedom to do wrong self-corrects even in such large numbers. I was about two years into the Dead and "Box of Rain," was not on my radar like it has become. The crowd was ecstatic, "and Love will see you through," and I was wondering why is Phil singing this whole song . . . I love that Phil has his vocal range and goes for it beyond that range, the sounds of the Dead are often about improvisation and experimentation. What might be a sour note in another band is a direction the song can take w/ the Dead. ". . . and a short time to be there." I'm listening again, thanks.

The first set was kinda meandering along (after a killer show the night before) and then Phil just lit the place up! I saw a lot of shows in Virginia in the 80's, always worth the 8 hour drive
