#75 10/9/1983 Coliseum, Greensboro, N.C.
#74 4/14/1988 Rosemont Horizon, Rosemont IL
#73 12/9/1981 Events Center, University of Colorado, Boulder, CO
#72 6/30/1988 Silver Stadium, Rochester, NY
#71 9/19/1988 Madison Square Garden, New York , NY


Ok another installment is up, to feast on this Turkey Day, featuring 3 more from 1988.

I know that Zephyr attended the Boulder show (#73), and I'm sure he will chime in about that one. Rosemont is rock solid at #74 and I bet not too many have heard that one. Greensboro (#75) is not a perfect show, but it really has that Fall 83 sound to it with the kick drums, "waterfall" Brent keys, and wah-wah Jerry. Love the Down-Deliliah opener. #71 is available on YouTube, and what a great China Doll. #72 is pretty well-known from Rochester, but too often forgotten in discussions of this Era.

I look forward to some eyeball witness testimony from Zephyr on this!

That's awesome whenever someone can chime in with anecdotes, etc.

I remember greatly enjoying 6/30/88, and that weird tuning to start the 2nd set. I always consider getting a She Belongs to Me to be a treat.

Not familiar with 4/14/88, but I'm going to put that on the list of "to hear per Swami", the list will be pretty big by the end of this project! That's the beauty of it, it's bringing lesser known shows into the fold. Great idea!

I'm digging the PITB from 9/19/88 as I type. It is all good so far (Foolish Heart).

I was lucky enough to be at the Boulder '81 show. It involved a road trip with 6 friends from Santa Fe and staying with several more good friends from Breckenridge, CO. The show was spectacular. Everyone was reeling in total exhilaration when the lights finally went up. Holleder Stadium '79 made me a permanent Deadhead. Boulder provided transcendent proof that this band, this experience, was worth warping your personal universe to get on board with as often as possible. The first set alone, comprised of 12 songs that wrap with LLR into the hottest China/Rider imaginable, is fabulous (enormous gaff in Jack Straw aside Laughing ).

Rochester '88 was really fun because it was a Dead show in an open-air minor-league baseball stadium. Baseball and the Dead go well together.

Back to what I'm listening to (9/19/88): a killer China Doll. Shredding for sure; Garcia really wails his way through the back half of the instrumental. And now they're taking a roundabout path back into the reprise. Nice. Thanks for the list and the reviews.

Wow! This Greensboro show has got it going on! The jam into Eyes of the World is pure musical exhilaration. And the the Not Fade Away is old school, with brilliant bass stylings from Phil during the lead in.

You recommended the Da Weez recording, Swami, but be sure to check out the Mark Horvath recording, too; it has a wonderfully open and clear sound. I just had a blast comparing it with the Da Weez recording. They are both truly fantastic yet very different from each other.

Will do. I'm really glad that someone else digs this show. This is a Point of Light that I feared would be heavily criticized. Every time I have listened to it I have enjoyed.

A Point of Lighter!

EDIT: Homerun!
Drummers are all over this show, pushing the tempo the entire time.
Serious power in China Doll, not a song I'm necessarily keen on.

Victim is great considering it was in its early days, before it went full power chord/gain effect.

Great show, all the way through, the reason the Point of Lights is such a great idea is...
You won't find any stinkers on this list. It will be the pleasing even if one of your favorites didn't make the list!
