Today In Grateful Dead History: October 1, 1988 – Shoreline Amphitheater, Mountain View, CA

terrapinIt’s career .250 hitter 1988 up to bat.  Again.  And he grounds to the shortstop.  He bobbles the ball.  And 1988 reaches on an error after hustling down the line.  That’s this show.

All the first set songs are fine here (Sugaree is actually pretty good) but everything just flies along without incident.  In the second set, Scarlet Begonias>Fire on the Mountain is decent and Jerry and Brent seem to enjoy playing back and forth, but we never get to that special place in the jam.  Space manages to do something here as it transports us to The Other One, but nothing major happens once we get there.  Morning Dew, like everything else here, is ok but pedestrian.

And that’s today’s show, ladies and gentlemen.  Hey, it’s 1988, that’s just how it goes three-quarters of the time.  Check it out here:
