Yes hello all you 80's experts. I have listened to this show a few times lately and was wondering what those of you who prefer this era think of this show......I like the second set but the first is not as good......Is this a good example for '89? I actually saw 2 '89 shows right before I went into the Marines. They were Cincinnati and Louisville in spring, I cannot remember the dates though .....Shocked .......

I think it was worthy. The 1st set is not an end all set of course, but its not bad at all. The 1/2 Step is solid, great Stranger, nice LIG>Deal

10-16-89 Meadowlands Arena, East Rutherford, N.J. (Mon)
1: Picasso Moon> Half Step, Stranger, Good Times, Built To Last, Memphis Blues, Let It Grow> Deal
2: Dark Star> Playin> Uncle John> Playin> Drumz> Take You Home> Miracle> Dark Star> Attics> Playin E: We Bid You Goodnight
Bob Weir's 42nd birthday

The 2nd set is sick. Probably the fastest tempo DS ever, and the UJB>PITB>UJB Jam before drums is awesome.
A bit let down whenever I see Attics, but the DS out of space is intense as hell before it, and the PITB reprise after it make it tolerable.

That tour was full of great moments. You could certainly make an argument for other shows getting released (like 10/9/89 would be an obvious choice).

I think this show is way overrated. Picasso opener for starters, then they don't do the "Rio-Grandee-O" in 1/2 Step. then Good Times and Built to Last. Schmeh...
The LIG>Deal is hot. As far the 2nd set I remember the UJB being kind of disjointed, and out of Space they play the worst song ever - IWTYH, and Miracle to follow is another weak choice. Reprise into DS>Attics saves it (i like Attics) but the Playin reprise is anti-climatic and lacks power to be a proper closer-they should have slammed into real rocker after that. Check out the Philly run after this. 3 excellent shows.

The First Set of 10-16-89 is a bit slow until the ending combo which generates some good energy. Set Two brings the magic - as Koch mentioned the Dark Star is extremely brisk, and the combination with Playin/UJB/Playin is really outstanding. The remainder of the set is also unique albeit possibly a bit rushed.

For me this show goes down as #4 or #5 out of the best shows of the tour. The top being: 10/9/89, 10/25/89, 10/26/89, 10/8/89. I would say it is comparable in quality of performance to 10/8 and 10/26 but 10/9 and 10/25 are the two that are over the top for me - interestingly both of which also contain great Playin/UJB/Playin sandwiches,

I also just noticed that my favorite shows from the tour aside from 10/16 are all from Hampton and Miami. Those were really the two crucial tour stops that Fall - the beginning and end of a magical journey.

No love for the Philly run Herr Swami?? Also have you ever checked out 10/14/89 - pretty interesting show.

This show rules, way better than either Hampton show. Outstanding moments:

.5 Step
Deal
DS
PITB
All jams

UJB is a little disjointed as Duderino points out but it was a fun and happy moment in context, a waystation amidst the jamming. IWTYH is of course the most pathetic song anyone's ever done.

I have always enjoyed "Nightfall of Diamonds" and consider it a classic performance. When I travel to the tropics, it always seems to be in the cd wallet. Very nice production values, so it plays well on whichever system it may be on (car, unkown new device, etc). Just my 2 cents. Very Happy

Yeah, the pre-drums is awesome... great 1st set too.
I actually like the DS>PITB>UJB>PITB... a LOT.
