#60 7/4/1984 Five Seasons Center, Cedar Rapids, IA
#59 8/12/1979 Red Rocks Ampitheatre, Morrison, CO
#58 4/5/1982 The Spectrum, Philadelphia, PA
#57 6/9/1984 Cal Expo Ampitheatre, Sacramento, CA
#56 7/15/1984 Greek Theatre, U. of California, Berkeley, CA


Well folks 1984 has arrived - fashionably late - to the party. Things seem to be heating up in the countdown, don't they? With this installment we have not 1 but 2 triple-Playin-bomb shows (#58 and #57), a trip to orbit in Summer 79 (#59), a coupe of "journeys through hell" (#57 and #56), and a smokin Help/Slip/Frank with Phil crushing skulls (#60).

Thanks a million for the AUD suggestion for the Greek. This Uncle John's Band is throbbing with clear, killer bass from Lesh. A jaw-dropping UJB, truly.

As we get closer to the top 50, the lists will likely become more and more familiar.
Of these, I'd probably choose 8/12/79... I remember when you first showed me that one Swami, and the term Orbital Jam was born.

Great shows, and I agree, as a SBD snob, on the AUD for 7/15/84, the one of that run I think really stands out.

I remember 6/9/84 being a heavy Brent show...

I listened to this show a lot when it first came out. The folks that had been there had all been knocked out by it, so the SBD reconnected them to those juiced memories. But for a person who was not in attendance (such as me) the experience of listening to the SBD recording was frustrating. All evidence pointed toward awesome, but I was always on the outside looking in. That probably accounts for why I haven't given the show a spin in, like, 25 years.

That entry to UJB is spectacular and, with the exception of a close traveling companion of 5/19/77, unique.

What about the Matrix?

Or the relatively new Miller/Scotton/Walker SBD?

Listening to all 3 in side by side, I'm going to have to disagree with you, my friend.

I agree the SBD is lacking. Particularly in Garcia guitar in 1st set.

I find the Matrix to be pretty good.

I sampled the intros to the following songs to come to this conclusion:
Cumberland
Dupree
Bucket


Any third, fourth or fifth party opinions out there?

Not to change the subject, but check out the massive Gloria tease toward the end of the NFA jam (7/15/84). The crowd goes bananas.

Digging 8/12/79 right now. The Boys were bringing it that night! Beyond the Eyes>Orbital highlight the intro jamming to NFA is truly inspired. The Black Peter is very enjoyable, too. The bridge of Black Peter delivers a perfect lyrical intersection between stasis and arrival, miraculous and mundane (quotidian might be a better word).

Now I've circled back around to China Rider. Nice second set all the way around.

One of the better meat sequences of a short review I've read.
This was like the surfacing of a lost show, but only one cassette, that included the meat.

And quotidian would have been good, but either works, an alliteration is catchy.
