Russelshiem, West Germany
Wearing my “Relix” shirt I was spotted by a group heads while I was wandering around the station looking for the train to that night's Grateful Dead show at the Walter Köbel Halle in Russelshiem (near Frankfurt).
They invited me to travel with them to the show, in a VW camper van, and the plan was we’d sleep in the van after the show.
It was four hour drive from Munich to Russelshiem, and once we got there I scored a ticket outside and was surprised to see how small the venue was, maybe 3,500 people. Lots of American GIs at the gig from the nearby army base.
Some highlights were, Bird Song > Looks Like Rain, To Lay me Down (!), heavy space > Spanish Jam > The Wheel.
It was a lysergic night for me.
Great story Bob Minkin! Wow what I would have done to have been there. Your photography are priceless cultural heritage treasures. I’m happy promoting your work on my social media pages.
You and Blakesberg agree to cover 25 states each or something? 😂
Thank you for transporting those of us who weren’t on the bus yet.
