I would love to see the Horton Fieldhouse show from 4/24/78 get the royal treatment. Not only do they encore/close w/ Werewolves in London but it contains one of the best Scarlet > Fire's of all time.
I'd be happy for every show from '74 to be released. Seriously any '74 and I'd be stoked!
So many more...I don't know, every time I jam a '74 off the archive I am NEVER disappointed.
Eyes, Playin', Truckin jams, jams in and out jams, jams on top of jams, MLB, whatever...everything '74 sounds good to me. Straight rippin'. Throwin' down.
Bring it on!!!

I watched Garcia/Khan/Vitt (Who else?) at the Great American Music Hall. I think it was in 1974. I'd like that moment in time to listen to.
I'm about to order the JGB at the Warner CDs (I was there) and was hoping the Robert Hunter & Comfort sets that opened those shows would be included, but alas... (I have it on tape, but still...)
I was a big fan of that era of Hunter's. I saw Comfort maybe a half-dozen times (didn't they have a single? a cover of "Wild Night", maybe?) and was disappointed when Hunter stopped performing with a band.
The Dinosaurs opened for the Dead on a couple (at least) occasions '82-ish at the then-Oakland Auditorium, so the tapes are there, if anyone wants to transcribe them.
