In the month of March we went to all the shows that I believe started on a Friday. The whole 3 shows would be great, but Saturday night was the magic of it all!
Just grooving on the 9/10/91 with Branford Marsalis and thinking that we should have a release, or set, with Guest Artists. Those horn sections shows in '73, any of the Branford material, Etta James, Allman Brothers..... Would be great to see some of that make a release, either in complete shows or a compilation. We're good on the Dylan & the Dead stuff (not a raging highlight anyway), but would love to hear some other good guests!!
(the original post to start this thread, 8/2/2007, someone else had the same idea!! Must be worth something....)
5-18-77 looking at my burn disc 2 of 3, LL > Sup, High Time (YES!!!), TMNS, Jack Straw, Ship O' Fools (YES!!!), EP > Eyes...
I Love a good High Time, this and Ship fun!!! Total faith and praises 4 Dave so far!!!!! Right on, brother in Deadness!!! Smoke 'em 'til the Wheels Fall Off!!! Miss you, Jer... PEACE!
The penultimate show from the comeback year of 1976, it's a high energy show with a great setlist and historic to boot. This show features the first He's Gone since the retirement and the last He's Gone since they took the tune off the shelf for good starting with Dick's Picks 29. This show would make a great bookend to demonstrate the evolution of the band from the '76 sound into the monster machine they became in May 1977. Check out the Other One, too!

I have a listenable AUD of this show, and I have to say that this is an exceptional performance from that period. It's a relatively unknown show that ought to be widely heard in pristine CD quality. I would definitely buy this if were released on CD.
Listening to this show now and would love to see it get the official treatment. This show features the most gorgeous acoustic Dead I've ever heard. I am also smitten with the American Beauty centered set list! By far, that is the band's best album and this year in their history is quite important as a result. Of course, this is my opinion but I feel that it is a legit one :-) Happy listening, folks!
09-03-1967 would be fantastic. it may be avalible in soundboard, but i really would love to see the artwork and improved sound. just to hear dancing in the street from that show in the hdcd format is bliss.
First show of 83 and the first Help>Slipknot>Franklin's since 1977. A mint show from beginning with Cold Rain & Snow to the end to the ending Sugar Magnolia. The Space>Throwing Stones was awesome as was the Black Peter.
I know a lot of people say that 83 was a throw-away year except for a very few shows (Broome Cty. Arena, Patrick Gym, Saratoga - to name a few) but this show was exceptional. It was the first show after an eleven week break for the Dead. I'm thinking maybe Jerry rehabbed during this period because the New year's run was so weak that year, Jerry nodding during all three sets at New years.
This was like a flash of lightning saying "We're backkk Baby"! Thing I'll listen to it again right now!
need some live dead released on vinyl. What happened to the Europe '72 vol. 2 vinyl? Where is that? Also Dave's picks on vinyl would be great, I'd buy the 7-31-74 release on vinyl. Fingers crossed!

would probably be a four disc offering, but some great performances that day, on a beautiful Summer New England day!
