So 34 years ago today, 11/7/1985, a man and woman robbed a bank in Western New York and fled the scene in a small red car. At the same time, an unwitting couple was heading to Rochester to see the Grateful Dead, driving in a small red car. Following the fastest u-turn I've ever seen a police car make, we got pulled over by a very nice NY State Trooper who took one look at my "Terrapin Bound" bumper sticker and decided we weren't the robbers. I guess the moral of the story is that if you're going to rob a bank, wear tie dye and no one will think you did it! :mrgreen:

Then after that came two of the very best shows I ever saw! :dance :listen



Was it a little red Corvette? Baby you're much to fast. Nice shows indeed!

I just listened to the 11/7 today and WOW! I’ve heard grate things about 85, but this show is quite fantastic! First of all, Jerry is in fine voice for 85. High Time is a standout. Everything is up tempo, and the Cumberland BIODTL Deal segment was pure dance! I grooved to that section in the shower lol and all of set 2, especially Midnight Hour (which makes me wonder when the next DeadCo MH will roll around...besides NYE), was a kickass rollercoaster. Gimme Some Lovin, fun, Stella, sweet, Throwin NFA, bouncy.

Thanks for posting Sue!
