Bursts of Bob Weir feedback, Ventura 1984

At the Grateful Dead's Ventura show on 22 July 1984, I was so thrilled by the mid-second-set sequence of "Terrapin Station", "Drums", "Space", and "Morning Dew" that I eventually put it on one side of what became my most-played Dead tape. Every time I listen to it I rediscover the perfect bursts of feedback from Bob Weir in the Terrapin coda and just as Dew begins. I often copied it for friends, so when I found the show on the Internet Archive, I loved reading someone's comment saying they'd once had that very sequence on a side of a tape and had always appreciated whoever'd had the idea of doing so.
