Agreed - when you look out over Denver and the eastern plains, its just a great backdrop to a Me and My Uncle or Jack Straw. As it says in one of the books RedRocks is the most overtly "western" of venues perfect for Dead tunes. The wind is refreshing and the sound bounces off of those two big rocks in the back. Extra fun during Rhythm Devil days. Additionally, I've been there during shows when the weather changed 4 or 5 times during the 4 hours - from sun, to clouds, to windy stormy (Crazy Fingers) threatening, back to sun. The western sun sets over the back so its God's spotlight on the band. Back in the day there were local stickers, "The Higher you get, the Higher you get, Dancing at Red Rocks"-its an awesome spot.
