Tough to call one I saw tons of shows but with a gun to my head this is my all time favorite attended. I could write a book on these 2 days alone so I WILL be brief. Crowd nothing like today I can say that at bare minimum 90% if not higher of those in attendance were on the magic bus. Many of us made our way down after the spectacular Hershey show the 2 days before. before. We were one of the first to arrive 8am or so Harry Popick was riding his bike around the empty lot & we said hello. (funny I had just saw him onstage at Hershey and here he was toolin around on a bike. The other thing about these shows is it was 1985 and it would be fair to say ALOT of folks were spending ALOT of time with Eric Clapton. From the the time we arrived till we headed to Pittsburgh I slept a grand total of 1/2 hour. Onto the 6/30 show. I'm sure alot of you have burned out your tapes listening to this one like I have. I'm not going to do a song by song review cause they are all off the chain. Without any doubt the greatest Shakedown Street ever to open set 2 .....and if you are younger listen to this . I have never seen a crowd more energized..and the band certainly felt it and were of like mind I believe
..... if you were there you know and I raise my glass to you.... if you have had it for years toss it on tonight... if you have never heard it you better strap yourself in...that said I will say a tape ( I still use that word) doesn't portray everything that was goin down but it gives you an idea . Gone are the daze.......
