I must concur, Jack Straw . Since I was a newbie I've had this one on cassette and it definitely renders the X-factor big time - TOO gets way dark. Tchoice!
The Winterland 1973 shows with the Cincinnati Gardens 12/4/73 bonus disk (or the whole show would be great!)
Even releasing them individually would be fine by me, but I hope that box set comes out someday. Thank you.
Roosevelt Stadium, August 4, 1976. The Help-Slip-Franklin's is amazing. You could feel Phil's base pulsating through you body. Besides the only copy of i have not is an audience with some insanely drunk idiot screaming thru the whole thing.
Anchorage, Alaska, 6/21/80. (It was featured on the homepage when I first logged in.)
The northernmost show ever, as far as I know, and with quite the cosmic vibe in keeping with the summer solstice. A Playing in the Band jam for the ages, a setlist I love. This is really a don't miss.
Since I got on the bus about six months later, I didn't see this show. Of the ones I did see, the ones I'd most like to see formally released, though I'd settle for downloads:
9/11/81 at the Greek (my SECOND show)
5/21/82 at the Greek
I think they're more candidates for download than CD just because they're the darlings of my idiosyncratic tastes rather than known all-time greats. E.g. the latter I particularly loved at the time because the setlist seemed to be a conversation as it played out. But there's a little riff in the UJB in the 5/21 show that I sing to myself to this day, and I haven't listened to it for eons. The tape is a tad battered...
