    Yeah, went to an excellent Chinese New Year show at Kaiser in 1989. Someone can look it up...from memory, Not Fade Away, Tenn Jed, Alabama Getaway (I think)...

    i hit ~ 40 shows in 87' alone, including full east and west, and 4 Lunt Fontanne, including both on my birthday (halloween), and the New years run. Was my most prolific year, I think. Still have masters from almost all of them. Which, likely, I will never listen to again what with all of the stuff coming out now.

    That said, so much up and down, at times in the taper pits I actually wished I were taping some other show that might have been in town, etc. We even had a taper bowling league in cities with longer runs, where we would trade versions, compare notes, even burn from DAT's while bowling, etc.

    Good times...strange times.

    Interesting times...

    Without the Pig, it ain't the Dead

    Before we go too far down this mamby-pamby 80s and 90s path of middle-aged (albeit talented) musicians going through the motions 95% of the time, let's think about 1969 through early 1971 as providing far and away the most consistent transportation to that unique good ol' Grateful Dead vibe >>> they still had the youthful, LSD-based energy so prevalent in ‘68 but had become really superior musicians with Pigpen as the wild card (it is noted in the book “A Long Strange Trip” that Jerry thought the band lost something vital when Pig died). So you get 1969 (when Dark Star and Lovelight took you from one side of the universe to the other), through 1970 (the legendary 10-hour concerts with the NRPS called “An Evening with the Grateful Dead”) up to the closing of the Fillmore East in April, 1971 (the pinnacle for high-energy musicianship before they started drifting down through Europe ’72 to the way-mellow world of 73 and 74). It's certainly well-known but take some time to listen to 5-15-70 (http://www.archive.org/details/gd70-....97.sbeok.shnf - one of the relatively few 1970 soundboards as, with Owsley in jail, the taping became sporadic) >> the jam out of the space in Dark Star is, in my very, very humble opinion, the best piece of electronic music ever created while the Lovelight shows why a huge number of Deadheads came to these shows for the "Revival" of Pigpen's nothins-better-than-gettin'-laid evangelical sermons.

    Article I just found in a New Yorker magazine from November:

    http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2...act_paumgarten

    Plus the author's can't-miss-'em 13 (he goes with 5/9/'77 instead of 5/13):

    http://www.newyorker.com/online/blog...ecordings.html

    The article's a couple months old but I hadn't seen it even though we get the magzine, just thought it might be of interest. If you plug "Grateful Dead" into the search box on newyorker.com a lot of interesting stuff comes up from as far back as the mid-'60's. Worth checking out if you're so inclined.

    Thank you for bumping this thread and inspiring me to listen to a nice, tight '73 Here Comes Sunshine.

    Hmm, really didn't care for this one. Thought the quality of playing was a B+ which was completely offset by the recording quality of a C-

    Been listening to those nicks picks for a while now. Great article too.

    I'm so addicted to Archive.org right now.

    Did they ever not rip the roof off in lakeland Fl?

    And : this one 11/30/80 go there....

    And of course for you late 80's fans this one from my backyard delivers.

    I listened to this one from a different source. Better quality. I thought the play was typical for that tour, which was generally excellent. Not the best but pretty damn entertaining.
    Disclaimer: I listened to part of an '84 show prior to popping this one in. J was sounding particularly doped up. Made the above show seem like gold.

    I vaguely remember being at that one. No idea of what I thought of the show at the time but after listening to it now...damn fine '91 show. Thanks for a memory!

    Thanks for all those links guys. Theres enough to keep me busy for months (LOVE that archive site)

    The only show I ever saw:http://archive.org/details/gd94-10-0...671.sbeok.shnf

    Unfortunately, as I was in high school at the time, (and Jerry died less than a year later) it was the only show I ever saw. I didnt even really care for the Dead at the time, it was just something to do while experimenting with mind altering substances..

    Cant get enough, now
