Grateful Dead
07/18/90 (Wed) Deer Creek Music Center - Noblesville, IN

Set 1: Help On The Way > Slipknot, Franklin's Tower, Minglewood Blues, Easy To Love You, Peggy-O, When I Paint My Masterpiece, Brown Eyed Women, Cassidy, Deal

Set 2: China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider, Looks Like Rain, Terrapin Station > Jam > Drums > Space > The Other One > Morning Dew, E: The Weight

Beautiful day in the cornfields of Deer Creek...Help>Slip>Frank seems "mundane" now but having just been revived the previous fall at Hampton - it was a barn burner to open. I did the whole tour skipping only Buffalo to rest up and boy was I glad I did. Easy to Love you was a real treat and EVERYTHIN played in set 1 was stellar. Set 2 LIFT OFF AGAIN...smokin China>Rider...one of my all time fave LLRains....massive Terrapin......the most "out there" Other One I ever heard and the coolest light show like nothin I have seen before or since...& A BIG FAT MORNIN DEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TO top it all off I am a huge band fan and it was my first time seeing the Weight..it had just been busted in the spring if memory serves me correcly--- and 15K or so of us in "communion" in a friggin cornfileld ..............swaying & singing to "You put your load right on me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gone are the daze..............

In before someone brings up Branford at Nassau.... but my 2nd favorite is 9-20-90 MSG which was also dare I say epic. Branford show was smokin hot but I honestly think its a little overrated ( ducking for cover)
