I'll apologize upfront for the lack of archival information of this source. I made a cassette copy of this show when I was in college 20 some odd years ago from a cassette of unknown generation. When I bought my first computer with a CD burner back in 1999 I transferred the cassette recording to CD. Since I have never seen a SBD copy of this show circulate over the years and no SBD seed is listed in the etree database, I thought I'd post it for those interested (and just maybe a cleaner seed will surface as result?). The recording has enough hiss, warble, pops, and clicks to make the pure audiophile cringe, but don't let it scare you - I was thrilled to get my hands on a SBD of this quality 20+ years ago. It's just easy to get spoiled by the quality that circulates today.
As for the show itself, I've always felt that it was underrated. The setlist is fairly typical of a tour opener, but the playing is crisp and clean throughout and the band shows lots of energy. Nothing particularly stands out in the first set, but the band is tight showing no signs of sloppiness. The China -> Rider has always been one of my favorites. The Playin' in the Band -> Drums -> Space is absolutely fantastic. I've always felt the best Drums -> Space were played in 1985 and this show supports that opinion. Great show for Brent, he really tears up the second set! For me, some shows just emote the feeling the band is genuinely happy to be there and this show is one of them.

Keep Your Day Job (*MISSING*)
Alabama Getaway beginning cuts and the quality of the recording is a little rough, but improves.
The jam in Playing in the Band is spectacular and the original taper must have thought so too, having broke it out as a separate jam on the tape cover, which I honored in the transfer to CD. The jam actually extends 3 minutes into Drums.
Two second cut in Drums at 6:22 (tape flip?)
Jerry teases with the first few notes of St. Stephen during Space.
Around and Around has small cut at 2:33.
J.B. Goode end is cut and Day Job is missing.

|Important news from bt.etree.org!
Begining on March 17 2006, all torrents seeded at bt.etree must
include 1) checksum files (.md5, .ffp) that include a checksum for
every lossless audio file in the fileset, and 2) a copy of those
checksums pasted into the torrent description, so everyone can see
them without downloading the fileset.
If you seed a torrent without this information, it will be deleted.
We're telling you this now, so you'll know.
Of course, if there is a problem, we'll try to contact you and help
to fix it. If you don't have a valid e-mail address on your
db.etree.org account, please take a moment to add one. If we can't
contact you, we can't help you, and it be very frustrating for
everyone. Seeders who don't have valid e-mail addresses may find
their logins disabled.
This message will appear on all torrents seeded to bt.etree until
everyone has gotten the message. If your torrent has checksum files
and lists them in the description, thank you! If not, please take a
moment to edit the torrent description to include them. If you have
to add the checksum files from scratch, you'll have to pull this
torrent and start over. Sorry about that.
For help generating checksums, please visit

questions, please post them at http://forums.etree.org and someone
will help you ASAP. Please do NOT e-mail us directly.
Thanks, and happy downloading.
|Please be patient my upload rate stinks.
|no worries, thanks!
|Cool! Been looking for a sbd of this since the show! I loved the spacey jam coming out of Playin. This was a friend's first show. From our seats higher up on Jerry's side, we could see the silhouettes of people in the hallway portal across from us as they broke into frenetic dancing at the start of the Alabama Getaway opener. Being raised in the countryside and unfamiliar with Dead culture, my friend excitedly remarked, "Look, a fight!" :)
|Oh no! Day Job is missing?!?!
keep this one going as I cannot grab it just yet. I will return ASAP.
Hopefully a few people will continue to upload after they finish the download.
It's nice to see this show up after all these years. Thank you for sharing it.

there's a dvd that circulates (transferred from my low-gen videotape of unknown origin) of the Rochester 11-8-85 second set - at various times during the set, the taper pans around the War Memorial and stops to focus on the dancers in the hallways - brings back some great memories!
I was reading somewhere last night about a show with a "Russian Lullaby" jam in the second set - was it one of these Hampton '85s?
thanks for sharing :-)
|For once, I don't care about the missing encore!!!
|Thank you so much for this! I love the eighties sound (cause that's when I first jumped on the bus) and I love the sound of the cassette master that comes through on this. It totally takes me back to the sound I remember from the tapes I was getting in high school. Funny how the digi revolution has changed both the standards for a 'clean' sound and the aesthetic of the sound itself. This is a welcome trip through some very sweet aural memories. Ever Grateful!
|I also saw this show so many years ago. I was 16 and took way too much blue acid. I whad to take a moment to collect myself during the first set. After intermision my buddies and I had come down enough to only deal with life patially. We spent the second set directly behind the band in a small alocove at the top of a very small coliseum. During the wheel my budy had a glow stick on a srting that he "wheeled" during the hole song. I seems appropriate sa we were out of our heads. This brought us back to earth and we boogied our asses of for the rest of the show. Does anybody remember that glowstick during the wheel. We could see the back of everones retinas from whre we we standing. What trip of a night that was. Thanks for surfacing a board finally.

Zeb, Great story on the Roch 11/8/85 DVD. The person who recorded it was my 9th grade english teacher. Buddy and I were going to the show, and he asked my buddy to grab him a ticket (which he did). The guy liked to bootleg all types of shows, was not really a dead head. Anyway, I ran into him at a bar on St. Paddy's day in 86 and asked him what he thought of the show (being young and dumb) I asked him if he dropped...his answer "No"...me "Why"? "Because I video taped the show. Can I get a copy? Sure thing. My buddy still went to school there, so he gave it to him and we started spreading it far and wide. My buddy's off the master was done about 10 years later. Nice to see it on DVD.
|FYI, there is a brief Russian Lullaby jam at the beginning of The Other One in this show.
|Wow, listening to this brought back a flood of memories. I now remember that Brent was totally on top of his keyboards and the tape reflects that. re: "Does anybody remember that glowstick during The Wheel," I actually do have a vague memory of that. The visual worked well with my buzz and the two electric Tesla orbs on either side of the stage. Finally, I had forgotten how Mickey really egged on the crowd during Drums as he looked towards the audience for cheers and made a batting motion with his drum mallet before walloping his hanging bass drum, which thundered the coliseum!

wow - that's an even better story! do you have access to your buddy's 1st gen tape? I'm guessing that would be a major upgrade to the video I have...
that video was shot from the seats on Jerry's side from about halfway up, I'd estimate - at one point, you can see someone raising a crutch down in the seats closer to the stage - my younger brother claims to be the infamous crutch-raiser!
>>>>wow - that's an even better story! do you have access to your buddy's 1st gen tape? I'm guessing that would be a major upgrade to the video I have...<<<<
no, he does not have the 1st Gen copy, or even 2nd...he made so many copies the thing finally gave out (not sure what he did with his back up copies?). I know the actaul tapers still teaches there as I ran into a kid from my home town at a DSO show and asked about the guy..course I have not talked to him in 21 years LOL
Maybe I should send him an email and ask for a copy? BTW you say its the second set only? The Vid was the whole show (I think my DVD of it is complete show as well). I'll see if I can dig up his email and ask him for a copy of his master. I'll let ya know if I can get a copy.
