This is just great! This was a wonderful show in one of the intimate venues Jeannine and I can remember attending. The acoustic set was inspiring; Deep Elem Blues, Little Sadie, and Ripple. The electric sets were spot on. Forever Young, Get out of My Life Woman, Deal, the Harder They Come, and Tangled Up in Blue. “Smokin'”…John Kahn and Melvin Seals were so impressive…back in the day! The “Good Old Days”, simple, calm, tight. All in attendance had a good time as we remember. We had drove from our then home in Corvallis, Oregon and camped at the Benbow Lake State Recreation Area nearby and went swimming in the Eel after the show. I found a silver gelatin photograph I captured of Jeannine at the campground there, just this afternoon. I was 32 years old and that was 32 years ago! I have tried to submit/upload photos of these since March 15 to no avail…I’ll keep trying…enjoy every day and take good care.

The best Garcia show I ever saw, hands down. 3 sets: 1 Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band and 2 JGB electric sets. In the middle of a redwood forest, with the Eel River running right next to the venue (wristband let you go in/out and swim whenever you felt like it). Wonderful Hog Farm production.

Probably the best non Dead performance(s) I ever saw Jerry do. 3 sets! Wavy Gravy! Jump in the river if you feel like it!

Spent a naked week at French’s Camp after Calaveras. Probably the best time ever!
