    Right there with you. Spring ‘90 shows are sporadic listening for me. I saw a bunch of that run and don’t typically listen to many of the shows I was at but still recognize it was excellent and love spinning here and there. But yeah, almost too polished to listen to all the time. If memory serves me right it didn’t feel that polished at the time. Just real good shows.

    Polished?
    I guess maybe like 1977 or 1972 were polished—or maybe just an incredible band firing
    I love how Garcia is so commanding. Phil’s playing is amazing. But yeah I loved attending fall 89 and spring 90 and am biased (I’m a big early 80s fan too… check out November Florida, Atlanta and 12-12/13 1980–I’ve been listening to every show in a row for a while now…. I did 85-90, now doing 78-84)

    I think of ‘72 and ‘77 as tight but electric and exciting as hell, spring ‘90 lacks the electricity, it’s kinda boring actually.

    ^ agree on 72 & 77, 90 is a different but still great energy that is harder to define. They are riding the peak of the wave of their popularity from In the Dark, Jerry is probably as healthy and on his game as he'd been since 77, Brent is a driving force both creatively and on stage (Blow Away) and Phil's playing and sound is on point every night regardless of whether the band was there with him.

    The Cap Centre shows with the bust outs nightly, Nassau with Brantford obviously, RFK, Deer Creek and Sandstone are all great energy shows where you can hear and see the band was enjoying the hell out of playing together. Add in the buzz created by Dark Star being back in the rotation and there was, at least for me and most who I toured with, the feeling that any night could be a "can't miss show." Not saying they all were because they weren't but there are more on nights in 90 than off imo and I'd say the most consistent night to night in the 10yrs (85-95) I saw the band. A sleeper show (10/20) from 90 post Brent.

    I am the outlier here I know, but there are some very good moments from the Europe tour that carried over into some phenomenal 91 shows. Bruce brought a new and different energy to the band that certainly sparked and challenged Jerry (and Phil) in ways nobody else in the band could.

    I do like fall ‘91, Phil’s tone never sounded better. I’m kind of the freak that loves ‘78 and ‘84 with ‘85 being my favorite year.

    Polished or not, y’all should be spinning 3/29/90 today. At least the Eyes.

    Ha! That was my first low-gen SBD tape, that Scarlet>Fire is the one I judge all Scarlet>Fires on. I wore it out also.

    The Brent meltdown show as your first, as if the "normal" circus wasn't enough you got some added band drama to set the hook even harder.

    Check that, different Maybe You Know show, that was 4/21/86 Greek, this was the first Maybe You Know which clearly caught the rest of the band off guard.

    Jazzy AF Scarlet. There really is something to the argument that solo Billy really let the band swing.

    fyi sphere prices should come down quite a bit from face on secondary market with lots of tickets still available. demand does not seem to be that high if anyone is contemplating a trip.
