Today In Grateful Dead History: June 2, 1995 – Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View, CA

dancing-bear This is the third post in a row from the 90’s and the second from 1995, but since this is the only show from this day in history, here we are at the Shoreline Amphitheatre for a show that isn’t nearly as good as the Portland Meadows show on May 29th.  Why?  Well, for starters, check out this second set:  New Speedway Boogie, That Would Be Something, Way To Go Home, Saint Of Circumstance, He’s Gone>Drums>Chanting by Gyoto Monks>Space>Easy Answers, Standing On the Moon, Around & Around E: Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.

The playing on some of the songs actually isn’t that bad.  Good Morning Little Schoolgirl and Ramble on Rose in the first set are fine, but Bird Song is a mess.  In the aforementioned second set, the transition from New Speedway Boogie to That Would Be Something is well done and the band seems to have gotten a second wind, but all the good feelings are destroyed by Way to Go Home.  The rest of the show is predictable and sloppy, but, again, not awful.
