Bang Shakedown Street... to much to fast.... I am thinkin I may never regain my sanity I knew probably 1/2 the tunes at the time. Look out for the Candyman ...sets my paranoia off more... Might as well brought me out of my shell and then set break . Now wtf do I do. THANKFULLY in true "deadhead fashion" this older couple next to me could see my giant black basketballs and gave me an orange and tried to talk me down a lil. This other girl who was in front of me for the whole set (if you know what GA floors were like back in the day... we had a very close "relationship" before even saying a word to each other). I somehow stammered I lost my friends. She said don't worry I'll take ya home. In my youth & in that condition I thought I had just found the goddess of "life"... I mnean I was wayyyyyyyyyy up there... so anyway I am feelin a lil better..Sampson Ship of Fools Sailor>Saint I am dancing in very very close proximity to the nubile goddess all the while losin my mf mind. Then He's Gone... I did not know it .. but when they started singin He's gone ..nothins gonna bring em back.... I started losin my shit again.. I mean I'm 15 ft from these guys they are looking in my direction singin Nothins goin to bring him back. oooo I am escared!!!! Then Drums>Space... more "frightening" sounds....finally they break in to truckin after Bobbys whistle... never in my life has what a long strange trip its been ever been as relevant. At the time The Stones were still my fave band and when they went into Satisfaction all of a sudden I felt "everythings gonna be allright wohooo!). Post show still flying I follow her to her truck. I literally had NO clue where we parked or where my friends were..Damn if one of em doesn't walk right in front of the truck and I head back with him. Postscript: This show was on A sunday night I didn't sleep until Wednesday night..made for a few REAL interesting days at school. I ended up talking to the girl on the phone and ended up "visiting" her but she lived on entirely the other side of Pittsburgh about an hour away and we just sort of drifted apart. "Oh what a night, late november back in 81"
