12/6/73 Cleveland Convention Center In tune with the cosmos

Great minds must be thinking alike, because this just got posted to the Archives:
Lazy Lightnin'>Supplication 5/15/80 (Go To Nassau) - amazing!!!
Playing In the Band 10/19/73 (DP19) - Drops into deep space so quickly - no filler- perfect.
It Must have Been the Roses - 4/24/78 (Tapers Section) - great pick Dave
Loser - 3/24/90 (Tapers Section) - I was lucky enough to be there.
but Brent singing "I Will Take You Home" to his little girl at the Shoreline Father's Day show was a moment I don't think anybody there is likely to forget.
Dang, I miss Brent too.
Favorite Blow Away (2 actually): Riverfront Coliseum 4/89 - dude got caught up in the moment during the Brent rap and got on stage, had to be escorted off. 10/26/89 - right after Estimated and right before Dark Star, weird placement and an over the top version
Favorite Estimated (2 again): the aforementioned 10/26/89 - some spacey jamming before they open set 2 with it. 9/2/80 - a spiraling solo from Jer that I wish would never end.
Favorite Bertha: 12/31/87 - the band comes out firing, great solo
"Got a few wrinkles but that's OK, hang out in the breeze and they'll blow away"
There are so many
and they change so often
I am always finding a version of "x" song I love more than another.
And there is the "live vs version"
Shakedown - 3.30.87
Ripple - 9.3.88
come immedately to mind.
Rats, gotta get back to the mine............
“The Omnipotent Grateful Dead!” - unknown
Dead to the Core
The Wheel from The Fox in Atlanta. 11-30-80 Can't be topped. You must listen to the space into it.
