My First Favorites

I always go back to the tapes that originally turned me on. The ones where I knew I had heard something that really hit me on a personal level. The ones that changed the way I listen to music in general. The ones where i got it for myself, for sure, no question about it.
A lot of these have been mentioned multiple times already so I will leave those out until I write my autobiography.
In no particular order:
12-05-1971 Love the SOUND. Cool echo/reverb plus amazing jams. SOTOTW!
04-18-1971 Tight, passionate, concentrated, FOCUS. Great banter!
05-04-1972 Elegant, class. Flowing,natural, pure, effortless, IN the pocket.
10-26-1989 My 2nd show. Stunned into silence! Cathartic, arrow thru the heart.
07-08-1990 First show that I was physically transported by. Got on the floor, inside the sound.
06-14-1991 Help peeled my face off, Slipknot rearranged my chromosomes, plus the rest!
08-21-1972 Great Dark Star, great feel, great soundboard.
06-18-1974 Favorite 1974 show. Dreamy, lazy, fiery, what summer is all about.
This is the super-short version of my list.

1993 Tape Traders Poll

If you look up Dick's Picks #4 on Wikipedia, it references this tape trader poll and says that the 2/13/70 show was #2 with 5/8/77 being #1.

1993 Tape Traders Poll

Does anyone have a copy of this list? I was always interested in finding what the shows to have were, and I keep seeing posts on the Web about this poll. Of course, it lists 5/8/77 as #1 but I wanted the whole list to get started on the collection.

@leadbelly27

hey dude, i recommend the Oxford Plains Speedway show from '89 (both shows actually)
and you can just go on archive.org, and type in your specific year that you want to find a show, and just go!

Peace out!! Happy Hunting

tapes to CD

DO NOT use those fancy adhesive labels on your discs
I used to put them on my discs and they would look nice as I
would import all these cool colors and graphics and run them thru the color printer
BIG MISTAKE...

over time, the adhesive interaction with the media rendered them useless
My CD player wouldn't read them, the ones it could read had an incredible
amout of static.

I was able to save about 100 or so recently but must have lost 100-150 discs...

Regarding essential 1980's shows (as that was the original topic)
in addition to what's been mentioned:

9/2/80 quite possibly the year's best show & a '77-esque Sugaree IIRC
9/11,12,13/81 Greek
6/30/85 killer Shakedown!
7/1/85
