    Unbelievable sound. Totally worth getting lossless, headphones, and full volume. I can’t get enough. What a set of shows. The separation of instruments (yeah there are some vocal dropouts) is unreal. And you can hear every pick and key being hit. I can only imagine what they looked like on stage wailing thru the 5-19-74 Jams in particular.
    Absolutely agree. This one is really high quality and worth owning.

    I've been listening to a bunch of '87 stuff recently. That was such a great year. My next favorite are the shows with Hornsby. Having not been able to take part, in person, in 72, 77 or 78 those are the two periods I enjoyed the most.

    Would you have preferred Vince without Hornsby, I think not. I am sure we can all agree a part of the band never recovered after Brent but without Bruce in the band for those 2+ years I don't think there would have been much to keep things going, especially Jerry. I've mentioned this before, listen to some of the 3 man jams (90/91 mainly) pre drums and the constant interplay/dueling licks with Jerry in almost every tune and tell me they werent enjoying the shit out of playing together, it showed on stage and came through on the tapes.

    ^^^agreed. Hornsby got Jerry through the loss of Brent.

    i didn't say i wasn't grateful he filled a role and let them keep going but the accordian was too much self-indulgence. his keyboard was obviously competent. dec. 90 at mcnichols arena in denver i think. popped open the exits after the show to be confronted with a ring of denver's finest mounted police surrounding the place. think somebody lost it on a trip on one of the days and ended up dying/being killed after breaking into a nearby home.

    Clearly the job at Yellowstone wasn't meant to be for you. I was at Tinley for Brent's last 3 shows, other than the gate crashers/fence climbers night one and cops on horseback at the 2nd 2 the shows were very good.

    I have not thought about it in a while but I am not good luck for musicians. Was at Brent’s last show, SRV’s last show, Jerry’s last show and Luther Allison’s , (Blues legend), last show. I should probably stop seeing DeadCo before something bad happens.

    I was at almost all of those MSG and Spectrum shows in 87/88, too. Was going to college in Philly and grew up in NYC so it was a no brainer.

    I miss that guy a lot. And that was a fun show, down the road from my house.

    I kinda consider Brent's passing to be the end of the good stuff.
    Not that they didn't make some good music after that, but some of the magic was gone.
    I quit touring not long after that.

    52 years ago today the Dead played a ski shop. Seems appropriate to acknowledge on TGR.

    Fun trivia. No recording exists. Some info however, including a photo of Pig...

    EDIT - better article on it. Coincided with the first North Face shop opening...
