On This Day in Grateful Dead History - Highlight 1979 - Oakland - Keith and Donna's Last Show February 17, 2017 "Not only was this a historic night, being Donna and Keith’s last with the band, but the boys absolutely torched this show. Set 2 starts off with energy and the first few songs are well done (well, Jerry messes up Bertha pretty bad) but nothing special. The following return to Playing is the highlight of the show, featuring some great, spacey exploration. art this was like my 5th show,and the first for my new girlfriend (and,later my wife).The vibes seemed really wierd to me before the show.The high doses we took only intensified it.Being a relative newcomer,I was a little unsure of myself and the strange feelings I was having.Still,I enjoyed the first set,especially the "High Time".During halftime we sat on the floor staring at each other-speechless.The weirdness intensified during a break that seemed as though it would never end.The second set started with "might As Well",which seemed like some sort of invitation.I looked at my girl,and she had the most terrified look I have ever seen on a human face.All of a sudden she bolted through the crowd,knocking people over as she went.I followed,appologizing to the victims of our sudden flight.We ended up in the lobby,where she approached three Oakland Coliseum security guards (not BGP guys).They seemed to be about 300Lbs.each,and wearing green police-like uniforms.She told them that I was the devil.They looked at me inquisitively,so I assured them that I was not,in fact,the devil,and that she was experiencing a bad trip,of sorts.THey told me that she was my problem,and went back to the conversation they were having before they were so rudely interrupted.I was ,in fact, deeply concerned for her,and felt responsible for the whole thing.We walked around the parking lot for hours as I tried to help talk her down.I ran into a friend out there sitting in his car,and when I told him what happened,he smiled ,shook his head and said,"I know just how she feels man,I had to get out of there too,it was WAY to intense".I took her home to her parents at about 4:00 am.Luckilly they were asleep.I called her the next day ,and she thanked me for a wonderful evening, and asked when we could see the Dead again!This exprience went a long way to help me understand the power of L.S.D.,the Grateful Deads music,and 15000 deadheads all in one place.Not to be taken so lightly.I had more respect forthe powers at hand when the time is right. DO YOU HEAR ME? $100, Over The transition in Terrapin is interesting but the Terrapin portion isn't right. Just listen to that Lazy Lightning > Supplication; Jerry just unleashed... well, lightning. Never had gotten off listening to Keith.... and Donna was just so-so, nothing too special.....they had their place, another wonderful piece of the band's history. $25.48. After the show I managed to find the kind stranger that had kept my backpack for safekeeping. We heard about the split a few days later, and while the Brent band put down some amazing music, and with more consistently in-tune backing vocals, I still hold the Keith and Donna years as the group's best.
