#40 7/31/1988 Laguna Seca Recreation Area, Monterey, CA
#39 11/9/1979 War Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, NY
#38 12/27/1987 Coliseum Arena, Oakland, CA
#37 11/7/1987 Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center, Oakland, CA
#36 10/31/1983 Marin County Veterans Auditorium, San Rafael, CA


First round of Kasems is up, and I'm patting myself on the back for working in a Casey Kasem reference in the official synopsis for #40. Speaking of which, this Laguna show probably will surprise most folks other than Kochman - but the Captain and I both believe that it delivers the goods. #39 and #36 are two heavyweights from pre-coma, and one might have expected them to be higher up. War Memorial is a well-known favorite among bootleggers, and the Marin halloween is one of my personal favorites. Jerry is just so zoned yet so good. As for #s 38 and 37, a couple of 1987s, listening is believing. Both are really hot shows and hopefully new discoveries for some folks. In particular I give the nod to #37 at Kaiser, which I truly believe qualifies as a "hidden gem."

Edit: I observe that 4 out of these 5 are from Cali - the prophet on the burning shore.

I guess all my visits to California in the 80's really paid off: My "Lucky [CENSORED] " quotient is now up to 12, which is to say I was at 12 of the Swami PoL shows (so far). It's making feel much better about my wasted youth. Very Happy

Laguna Seca delivered the goods both years, but you're right that the Kaiser show was genuinely special. The whole audience was transcended to some kind of living Nirvana. We were radiating bliss by the end of Heaven's Door, and it wasn't a quiet bliss, either. It was mass exultation - a really loud mass exultation that went on without abatement for a really long time. Rumor had it that several band members had left the building before a nervous Bill Graham reeled them back in for a second encore that was specifically intended to break the thrall everyone had fallen into. I never experienced anything like it either before or after. Most memorable, Grasshopper. Cool Mr. Green Cheers

Note that there are two Miller SBDs of the show: the upgrade (122203) gets the pitch right which makes a huge difference.

I also recommend the Ladner AUD for 10/31/83 (a show I missed Crying or Very sad ). To my ears it has a lot more juice than any of the SBDs.

All I know of the 88 Seca was my dad taking me to the hill on Ft Ord overlooking the race track.
I must say, I'm quite proud to see it so highly placed, and think it deserves it.

I'm very curious to get into the 11/7/87!

12/27/87 is a great show, indead!

And, a long time Swami favorite, in 10/31/83 finally shows up. I knew it would, it had to.

More on Laguna, the show...
That Dew is the best of the year, IMO, and one of the best ever. That it ends the set helps.
7/15/88 is also a great, set ending Dew.

The IWTYH into drums is way more appropriate, to me, than out of Space. When space is getting all weird, and everyone is out there, it is just utterly self-indulgent to force that song in... and a groove buster.
I'd actually generally prefer it was never played.

We LP'd 11/7/87 about a month ago.

Oh yes! I remember now!
They came right out of the starting gate with that energetic Pockey Way, and really never let up.
This led to a great Miracle and later an intense Black Peter out of space.
Absolutely agree, hidden gem!

Space > Wharf Rat > Miracle > Bertha > Good Love.

The post-drums sequence, which repeats what I heard them play at my second show (9/1/79), is pretty darn great. The Good Love makes me wish they had a quartet of dapper doo-wop dancers on stage, FWIW. The end of the song, with Garcia and Mydland performing back-up vocal duties, always makes my day.
