"Here Comes Sunshine"
Hint:
After just a year in the repertoire, this song disappeared, but thankfully it returned after 18 years

"Here Comes Sunshine" debuted 2/9/73, and despite being played frequently throughout 1973 and being a standout on the excellent Wake Of The Flood album, it left the repertoire in February 1974. To everyone's joy, it returned in December 1992.

    This is where it starts to get hard

    Listening to this just brings mixed feelings for me, including a lot of sadness at Jerry's manifest deterioration. He sounds like he's really struggling here, and the band struggles with him. (Those chirping keyboards sound like something you'd hear at a Rotary Club wedding.) I guess it's important to remember those times as well as the better ones, but musically, this isn't one I'll need to listen to again.

Heading into 2nd half already, wow. I was 12 for 15 on the front half. I'm counting the two venue hiccups. The other three I could not enter, work gets in the way of everything (well not always). See you at the finish line, guys and mamas.

As I listened early today it was very clear to me the exact year with-in moments of play. Hearing a song played for the second time by the band was Grateful. This is the year they threw a few first in along with some only time played and after all last time played songs!!! Grateful year attending 13 awesome shows!

I was super stoked to see the UVM show yesterday! I was just there on Sunday, and whenever I’m there I wonder what it was like to see the hood ol’ Grateful Dead. What a fun tour that must have been NH(opener)>VT >NY! May ‘78 is the goods! The band is in prime form w Bobby calling the shots, sweet sweet Sugaree to open, amazing Terrapin>Playin’ a Sunrise in there as well. VT has to be up there on “least played states” chart. 2 at UVM, 2 up in HIGHgate, with an almost in Middlebury. I was fortunate to be at the 94/95 shows, very special to me…to say the least, if I told you all that went down it would burn off both your ears!

Definitely not my favorite era of Dead, but still gratefully appreciated.
You might need to try this one two times maybe more.
I will get out of your way, since this is the first day in a week when I can literally say Here Comes Sunshine. Been more Looks Like Rain where we are at.
Cheers!

Not a fan of shows from this decade in general (after the first year or so of the decade that is) but this performance is...shall we say...not great? The vocals are terrible. Give me a 70's version any day.

Not sure about you all, and 99.9% sure I have the correct answer, but I only saw one option for this venue in the drop down list.

when the verses escape you? Play some amazing guitar solos of course! The more I listen the more I like it.

And on another topic:
To Ace: Blessings and healing to you during your time of loss. May the Sunshine work it's healing magic to all those affected.

Hopefully I don't get banned from Deadnet for this comment but as much as I love "Here Comes Sunshine", I could have done without them revisiting it in the 90s.

I pretty much stopped seeing them when Brent passed and its songs like this that reenforce why that was a good idea This is just not good

I was actually at this show. It seems like the ones you think are going to be easy end up being the tougher ones. I have go lie down now.

Got lucky where i started and found it on the first try!
I do understand the critiques of this era, and why it might not be everyone's "fave." But I enjoy it, warts and all, because these are the years where I was able to see them (saw my first show in '92 at age 15). There are plenty of real gems to be found in these years too, and I appreciate Dave for highlighting some. (I absolutely love the 6th song in the 1st set of today's show, think it's the best version of it!)
I wish SXM would play more from the '90s.

The vibe was so familiar, as well as the mix. Found it on the first version I checked.

MAYBE MORE-- this one show--- specifically I am proud of my husband for his presence as well as taping of this show and am so lucky to have an original AUD/PRO/DVD that I can share with him. He was good at what he did- ASU did well for him- but this show was epic in more ways than I can speak on music.

such a great album. been enjoying the good ol' Grateful Deadcasts on this topic, and this song.
had no idea where to start, so it took me a while but we finally found the sunshine today. Indian Summer weather here in the Lake Michigan region.
this is one heady show! Jah bless the tapers, bless Lemieux, and bless you too.

Thank You Kindly Jerome for that small lyrical flub, otherwise I wouldn't have found it!
Irony is it's over my favorite line about shoes and the floor.
