I wouldn't mind seeing a box set of this released. I saw well over a hundred shows between 87-94 and when I walked out of the last show I knew it was over for me. The magic was over by then. BUT....the shows were still good. Even though the magic was over you could still feel that they were trying. Another box set i wouldn't mind seeing is the MSG run in 1990 with Bruce.

Sorry for the way that sounded. It sounded like walked out in the middle of a show. The last show I saw was 10/03/94. I saw the whole run at the Boston garden. There was still a "little" magic there, but not like it was for me when I first started going to shows. I started in 87' and to to me ' 87, 88' and 89 were awesome. In my heart of hearts when I left after the show on 19/3/94 I saw an encore of brokedown palace and I knew my touring days were over. I wanted to remember going to shows and having a good time, with a good scene, and you could tell that it was going south bad. I even remember getting bad acid on tins run. It was just over for me, it has all changed. I'm sure the older heads felt the same way when we started going in 87. For me it wasn't touch. Of grey that got me into the dead. A friend got me into them in 1985, but i was to young to go to shows yet. I remember all I wanted to do was go to a show and hear terrapin station, and darknstar. Everyone told me in was nuts and would never hear a darkstar. I was there when they brought it back...there was still magic then

My first was days after your last, 10/9/94... and while it was obviously downhill from where it had been... if you hadn't been to the earlier stuff there was no frame of reference like that... I had a blast!

Having heard WAY more of the GD since then, it is pretty hard to listen to a lot of 94-5... even for me, a fan of 90s GD.

The performances became spottier and spottier for sure...

Was there a DP release of this Boston run? Maybe I am thinking Boston '91....

I may not be successful but I am going to try to have the posts under this subject actually talk about the Boston Garden 94 run.

The only show I have heard from this run is 10/1/94. I must say that I listened to it only because I saw it made the top 64 list. One of the things I love about the top 64 is that it encourages me to listen to shows I had overlooked and 10/1/94 is one I am really glad I listened to. The set list is outstanding and Jerry's singing is strong and spirited (A little too spirited for my blood with the Stella where it is more screaming than singing and I do not think the screaming fits the mood of Stella). Not too many shows that do both Scarlet Fire and Help/Slip/Franklins, as this one does. Not crazy about the Help/Slip/Franklins, but the Scarlet Fire is excellent for any era and may be the best one of the 90s for me (although I must say that it often is the most recent one I like that I rate the highest)

I also like So Many Roads and this is a well liked version even with the lyric flubs.

I remember this run of shows too. My wife, one of my friends, and I drove out to Boston from Chicago for this run of shows. I remember being really pissed off as baseball had just canceled the end of the season and the Yankees and Sox were to be playing during this run. Needless to say, our baseball tickets were worthless. The beautiful drive in to MA was pretty nice though.

The shows themselves were pretty nondescript. Nothing mind blowing, but fairly competent. It was already certain that the Garden was going to be torn down, and the boys did play well enough to give the old barn a proper send off.

A couple of funny things happened that I do remember. One was me and my friend wandering around the Garden after one of the shows and having a very hard time finding our way out. There were so many dead ends and stairways to nowhere in there it was really funny. We managed to get down onto the floor and took some really funny pictures of us acting like we were playing hockey and getting checked into the boards. Ah, good times. Then, after one of the shows, we wandered down into the park across from Faneuial Hall. At around midnight, the park was completely filled with hippies huffing balloons. If you haven't been there, this is right in the middle of downtown Boston in a pretty family friendly area. It was quite the scene to see a bunch of happy heads sitting out enjoying the crisp fall air.
