So, what are your all-time greats?
The final Furthur shows ever were in Mexico in January 2014. This is before Fare Thee Well was announced and before John Mayer gloriously entered our universe. We thought this was the end of the music ... They segued from Scarlett Begonias not into Fire on the Mountain but into the best Reuben and Cherise of all time. And then, under a glowing full moon at night they did the most lovely Standing on the Moon ever. My wife and I thought we were gliding to Fennario ... Jerry was there in spirit for sure and those may have been the most memorable Dead experiences ever for those few of us lucky to be there
Try the nice folks at:
Just a few keystrokes for them.
Are there any lists of the best of Dave's? I could dive into it myself but figure someone with greater knowledge may have already tackled this, trying to make one playlist that is manageable in size.
Not a bad jam list at all...I would listen to entire shows tho. Just me
Try DeadBase. You'll find it there.
trying to find a list of every opening song ever played. would love to see how many times each song was played, but will settle for just a list of song names. thanks in advance!
Hi Everyone. Only got into The Dead about 4 years ago thanks to a good friend (and lifetime fan) taking me under his wing. I have a "favorites" CD that I burned that I listen to in the car mostly (I.e. good driving tunes) and would welcome everyone's comments as to my selection, here goes:

2) Next Time You See Me, Fillmore East, 1971 (Ladies and Gentlemen)
3) Ain't It Crazy (The Rub), Fillmore East, 1971 (Ladies and Gentlemen)

Listening to this right now - 10/21/83 Wharf Rat. INDEED worth a listen and re-listen many times over. Solid.
I simply love this version. A lot of people talk on the one from Cole Field House a couple days prior, and that version is about 4 minutes longer, but this one does it more for me. -edit- P.S. marye You missed a spam (way forgiveable) about 30 posts up (samson77)
