Does Furthur count here too?

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

Best Of Dave's Picks (so Far)

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.

3) Ain't It Crazy (The Rub), Fillmore East, 1971 (Ladies and Gentlemen)
4) Big River, Great American Music Hall, 1975

3/9/81 Bird Song

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)
