The Ski McGee's '94 & '95 Pigskin Picks

Here are 2 good shows from 1994 and 1995. I have talked to some heads who regard this period of the band as the pits. I have no plans to start an argument about that, but I generally like 1994 and 1995. Jerry’s voice sounds great in these shows, and there are no major lyric flubs that plague other shows during this period. This 1995 show is absolutely fantastic compared to other ’95 shows I have heard. There are great just-about flawless versions of Ship of Fools and Brokedown Palace that are worth getting, if for no other reason. The 1994 show has a flawless Terrapin. Help on the Way here is one of the best ‘90s versions I have heard. It is extremely tight, and you can hear the guitar chords. Vince does not have that sloppy keyboard stuff as heard in 1991 (i.e. Boston Garden 1991).

Notes: 5 Audio CDs, seamless, DSB sources, excellent quality, the 1994 show I received has some songs combined together in the same track (see below)

update

I am making copies for morokolli since he is in Europe and I am sending them to him, I still have the originals to send on to someone in the U.S, or Canada. Next person who signs up will get them without waiting for anyone else. What a deal. Any takers?

Yes

Yes. Send a private message to Hal_R and give him your mailing address for this vine. He will mail you the CDs. Make a copy of them and mail the original CDs to the next person. Right now Hal_R is the end of the line.

You will be #11 on the sign-up list. The next person to sign-up after you will be #12, and you will send it to them after you make a copy.

94 and 95

Hal--I think you said that you typically stay away from late Dead stuff.

Well, what did you think?

Everyone has their listening quirks. I prefer 94 and 95 over late 80s through '91.
