so nice seeing Jerry smile and having a ball on stage

What a great birthday present for Jerry. Seeing the band on film, like seeing them live, is a one-of-a-kind experience. Show was marred by projectionist muting the sound for the first two numbers. Encore Knocking on Heaven’s Door: Priceless

Such a joy to see the old lineup. I was almost in tears watching Jerry and Brent interact. This was my first meet up. It’s now gonna be on my perpetual calendar. I immediately went home and started pulling out the live concerts on vinyl. Can’t wait u til next year!!! Bravo👏

I remember seeing this show live almost 29 years ago so it was great seeing it again. It was great to see Jerry smiling and having fun doing what he did so well.

So enjoyable .. took me back to the days. They were having such a great time at that show..everyone was smiling and it came through in the music.

The Dead in great form, and Jerry Garcia in a healthy period in his life. A top notch show from an underrated period in the Dead's history. A great run of shows around this time.

Loved everything about it! Was crazy cool to see everything up close on the drums section. Box of rain opening the second set was more than I could ask for! We had to ask the theater to turn off the music but it’s all good. People are dancing in the aisles and clapping after every song, it was awesome!

Would have been nice if the sound was on half way through Hell In A Bucket in North Brunswick, NJ.

A tremendous show. Jerry was so into it...smiling...rockin'...interacting with all the band members. Haunting Standing on the Moon! Wonderful rendition of Knockin' On Heaven's Door!

Saw this at Regal Brandywine Town Center, on the outskirts of Wilmington DE. Sound was Great throughout (even if I couldn't feel the Phil bombs or The Beam)! We could have used an actual intermission (old bladders throughout), but no complaints, otherwise. I have this show on DVD, but you can't beat a large screen and great sound.

Regal Poulsbo; Turn it up!! you play movies louder than the music last night! Other than that it was great to relive the summer tour of '89.

Any chance to see Jerry smiling and playing his heart out is fun. I’ve seen most of the previous meet ups and this wasn’t my favorite (sound problem during warm up and at beginning of the concert). Plus it just wasn’t loud enough. Same period Alpine show, from a few years ago, was much better. But Jerry close ups and the second set jams were devine.

While it was great to see Jerry smiling and having a great time on stage, I was hoping for a much earlier concert, As soon as I saw the opening numbers with Bob Weir I became disappointed. Wished I could have seen more Jerry

meh. great let it grow, but i don't agree that jerry was his best or this show was the best when jerry's really jazzed, he breaks out the hummer strum (ask a girl if you don't know what that is). didn't see any of that. and i just never fell for brent. sorry. i like the old way of filming where you can actually see them play - not like the filmer has ADD. anyway, i've seen earlier gd nites films and they were more rockin'. better luck next year i guess...

The Grateful Dead Meet-Up has been the kind of blessing that Jerry surely would have anointed. Spending a hot day in a cool theater, watching crisp video and stirring audio of the Grateful Dead, is an awesome way to be a “headlight on a Northbound train.”

One of the best shows I've every seen. Talk about a Scarlet Fire followed by and Estimated Standing on the Moon. And that Blow Away! Miss you too, Brent.

Loved the film and the presentation in my theater. It is really a cinema verite look, with about 6 cameras capturing the band playing some of their best songs at the heyday of their late 1980's resurgence.
