4/1/88 Meadowlands

Excellent show... right from the start, on 1/2 step, Jerry has great sound going.

Follow that by a nice Straw, and a To Lay Me Down...

ALERT... Ballad of a Thin Man! Yes. Too bad they didn't keep playing this and develop it better... Not sure if Bobby should have sung it...

Push Comes to Shove & Minglewood - standard

Cumberland - OH YEAH

Deal - awesome jammed out ending, so much more to 80s Deals than in the 70s... And, the 1st set is done!


China>Rider - Guitar tones are nice, and this Matrix is crispy.

Estimated>Eyes - Great Estimated, Brent gets crazy during the intro. Bobby freaks out during Estimated... no surprise, but it is a show where he does more than average. Awesome transition. Eyes does to me what I ask and more... Especially short yet exploratory for 88.

Drums>Space>

The Other One - love this song out of space... intense... as it should be, Jerry is on... spacey, as a good 88 other one must be... well done...

Wharf Rat - you get what you expect.

Rest of show - you get what you expect.


Give 88 a shot guys, its a great year...

This is an EXCELLENT show. The first set is amazing, and the 2nd set, even though the setlist is pretty standard, is high energy and well played. Killer China>Rider.
The other 2 nights (3/30 and 3/31) are awesome too.
Healy was doing a good job with the sound that tour.

I Love the Dead at Giants stadium.... One of the best 'Lot' scenes in my opinion... I believe the boys loved to play there too!!! Who else could sell out Giants (aka 'the Meadowlands). I look forward to hearing this show, because I also love to hear Brent's fingers dance on those keys!!!!

Damn fine show with Garcia hitting home runs right from the start. One of the better first sets I've listened to in a long time. The solo at about 5:30 in Deal is huge. Second set looks standard on paper but delivers all the way through. The Brokedown closes the show perfectly.

I wouldn't go that far... I would say one of the better 88 shows, which is a lackluster year.

What is TDIH?

Anyway, I disagree with your review, as follows:

To Lay Me Down is a highlight.

Push Comes to Shove is awful, it barely holds together.

China>Rider is an exceptional version.

Wharf Rat is an exceptional version, although I'd be willing to listen to arguments otherwise, I haven't listened to it much.

Also notable is that Other One hits a little peak before the second verse that's nifty.

He wrote that in 2008, back when he also thought 1969 was a great year. Now it's 73, 79, 81, 93, and pray for rain.

Yes, as the moons pass, so does my taste.
That being said, I am starting to like 88 a lot more again recently.

Listened to 4/30/88 with Swami the other night... the 1st set was pretty cool, with some X-factor... then it slumped to start the 2nd set, so we changed shows.

4/7/88, I think it is, which Swami showed me, is a great show... tight... tight like a tiger.

I remember that show from back in the day. The next night (4-8) is also good I think.

Re-listened to this with Swami tonight... can't say enough about it. Clearly a high energy, '88 barnstormer.
Officially released as Road Trips Volume 4 Number 2, every bit worthy of an extended release.
