radio program dead in europe

i have a small radio program here in valencia spain one hour twice a month. i was thinking of doing a show composed of grateful dead performances in europe. anybody want to help me out with suggestions? ideally, there would be something from each tour, and spread out from different venues adn different countries. obviously there need to be high qualtiy recordings easily accesible. ratdog also counts, i think. remember it's only an hour long show, so "the entire second set from wembley" is not going to fit. let's hear your opinions on the best performances, single song or song sequence (china cat > rider, etc.) from europe. BTW sorry this isn't a contest, no one will be sending you a free copy of road trips vol. 1 2 or 3, but you'll make my life easier and my listeners happier.

close but no cigar

if that is as close as it gets, i guess the answer is no. i'll even concede the 2nd sets as identical and even the 1st encore is the same. but the first sets only have some similarities. i'll admit i'm surprised. i would have thought that it had to happen at least once, the truth is i'm surprised that that is offered up as the only time a second set was repeated. with far less songs, the probability would be much higher

identical setlists Gonzo's answer

In August Lamagonzo posted this on another forum

this is what he said.


'The question of 2 identical show lists is a factoid I obsessed on for some time until satisfying myself that I had the definitive answer. The answer is never, but almost. The entire 2nd set is virtually identical except for a Nobody's jam.

The dates are, drum roll please,

Prov. 5/14/78 and and UCSB 6/4/78

Read'em and weep.'

I'd check with the DeadBase folks (who are in any case putting together a new edition). I vaguely recall hearing that there were something like one or two instances of duplicate setlists over the band's entire career, but the discussion in question was many years ago so I'm not sure the recollection should be trusted!
