As it gets closer to the anniversary of that fateful August day 14 years ago, I tend to listen to 95 shows. I have to be honest 95 pretty much sucks it up. There are highlights the SLC shows at in February come to mind. 95 Soldier Field is NOT the SLC shows. It is hard for me to say if it was the worst run of 95 also. 7-8 is pretty much an easily passable show. If I never heard it I would have been okay with that choice. Yet throughout the lyrical flubs (Sugaree), the band at a total loss (most of the show) comes Visions Of Johnanna. This version was released on Garcia Plays Dylan. From the reviews at the archive ol' Jer pumped his fist after the "madonna" line. This is the best song of the show. It seemed the Grateful Dead could pull it off again. I often wonder what the fall tour that never happened had in store. Everyone knows the spring and summer tour didn't have that old magic.

That Visions was good... it would have been better if Jerry hadn't missed the solo in the end though!
This show is WAY better than the next night's performance, one of the better shows of the years. There were errors, of course, but hey, its 95.

Agreed this show was better than that other Soldier Field show in 95. I still don't think I can say this show is in the top of the year though. Deer Creek 95 was a better show in my opinion. I at least enjoyed the setlist a little better.

These shows are just plain awful and too painful to listen to. The only reason I hear the Visions you guys are talking about is because I have Garcia plays Dylan. I would never consider going through the trouble of looking for this show. Most of the clowns at the archive of course give these shows five stars. Spare me!

I have listened to it. I still am not a big of fan of that show. 7-8 is better than 7-9 though, I agree with you on that.
