NO EQ OR ADJUSTMENTS WERE MADE. THE FADE OUT AT THE END WAS DONE AT THE TIME OF THE RECORDING
THE TAPE FLIP WAS RIGHT AFTER TAMBORINE MAN AND DURING THE APPLAUSE, NO MUSIC WAS CUT

1990 WAS A GREAT TIME FOR ME. A LOT OF TRAVEL, A GREAT GIRLFRIEND, LOTS OF GRATEFUL DEAD SHOWS, DYLAN
SHOWS AND DEAD TOUR AND GOOD FRIENDS. A NICE COMNINATION FOR A SINGLE MAN AT THE TIME.THE FALL DYLAN
TOUR WAS REALLY GOOD. THE WEATHER IN LATE OCTOBER AND NOVEMBER WAS IN THE 80’S MOST OF THE TIME. THERE
WAS THE USUALL SUSPECTS ON TOUR, PAT (PDUB), KEITH, MIKE, MICHELLE, SONIA, COOKIE, DEENA, BOB B, KEN,
BEV, AND MORE. WE WERE ON OUR WAY BACK TO CHICAGO FROM THE DYLAN SHOW AT THE IOWA STATE FAIR, LISTENING
TO SOME DYLAN AND HAVING A GOOD TIME. THEN WE PUT ON THE RADIO AND HEARD THE BREAKING NEWS OF SRV’S DEATH
AT ALPINE VALLEY IN WISCONSON. A LOT OF TEARS WERE FLOWING THAT DAY. THE NEXT 24 HOURS WERE REALLY SAD,
MELLOW AND WEIRD. WE DIDNT KNOW IF THE MERRILLVILLE SHOWS WOULD EVEN GO ON. BOTH SHOWS WERE EMOTIONAL AND
GREAT.

WE HAD BOUGHT HOTEL PACKAGES IN ADVANCE BECAUSE YOU GET A ROOM AND GREAT SEAT FOR THE SHOWS. I HAD GOOD
SEATS FOR BOTH THE 27TH & THE 28TH. I THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE A FEW MEMORIES OF THIS SHOW AND THE SAD EVENTS
SURROUNDING THEM. THE RECORDING CAME OUT VERY NICE. ENJOY
