Only 4 gigs in this "retirement" year...they're all pretty fuckin' incredible to say the least...and each very different from the other...as for MY favorite...


I'll go with 9/28/75. the MOTB AUD recording is fantastic and blows the soundboard out of the water.

this gig is way more relaxed sounding than the polished yet wonderful GAMH on 8/13/75 that was mostly for record industry and radio executives...THIS one was for the 'Heads!!!...the audience appreciates the Franklin's Tower a LOT for what must have been most people's hearing of it. "WE LOVE IT, WE LOVE IT!!!" one gal shouts. Jerry's solo after "If you get confused listen to the music play" is my very favorite (my second being 8/13/75-they mellowed out after this).

Matthew Kelley can be heard blowing his harmonica on this 2nd version of The Music Never Stopped.

They Love Each Other is not the fast '73 version, nor the slowed-down reggaeish version from '76 onward...it falls somewhere in the middle and is sublime.

It Must Have Been the Roses...sweet as molasses without being overly earnest and without dragging. Beautiful. Donna sounds great during the whole show, by the way (yeah, yeah, i know).

lots of debate as to whether or not the post-Truckin' jam is REALLY the "Eleven" jam...i like to think it is...even if it may not really be...it IS in 11/4 time...i labeled my disc Eleven jam. this was last played 1/16/70 in Oregon.

oh, and there's apparently a baby being born AT LEAST once during the show according to stage banter and calls for a doctor!

they wrap this final 1975 gig up with a fiery Not Fade Away>Goin' Down the Road Feelin' Bad>One More Saturday Night...lotsa folks must have left Lindley Meadow completely awe-struck, rejuvenated, and ready for the Good Ol' Grateful Dead to get back on the road!


what's YOUR favorite? why?

I voted for Kezar for the obvious -- No Donna! :)


I have always found the Kezar show to be my favorite show of the bunch because of the raw power. Also Ned and Merl sit-in on this set and it sounds fuckin good

I also went with the Kezar.

The whole show is rather short... but, it is certainly sweet.
I love how they just break out this entirely new shit, without stopping, until they stop... then, they come out for the encore, with a rip-roaring JBG! Completely traditional... they didn't exactly stop on a dime, they stopped on a show ending, but still... awesome work.

This show is great for a drive to work (unless you live really close of course) in a big city.

Second place was 8/13

Golden Gate and Kazar are pretty close..
I pick Golden Gate because Jerry sounds like he's havin a ball..
Which makes for great jams..

Without having given it much thought, I've got to go with the Lindley Meadows show. I just love the sound mix at that show. I love the way Keith's piano sounds. Donna's there, but not too intrusive. And what a scene it must have been. A perfect soundtrack for sitting outside on a lazy summer day.

I'll be the first to throw a bone to 8/13. I have always loved this one.
It was one of the first boots I ever had..... a buddy of mine had the vinyl "Make Believe Ballroom" boot of this show back in high school. He kindly dubbed it onto cassette for me. That was over 26 years ago....Damn I'm gettin old....
And I have been very partial to this show ever since. Have since upgraded to the official release on CD and the obvious sound improvements have made this one sound even sweeter. I hold this version of Franklin's as one of my all time favorites.... Something about Jerry's opening riffs to this version always strike a chord with me.

I have listened to and enjoy the others from '75 (6/17 having perhaps the sweetest version of Peggy-O ever), but 8/13 for me is like an old friend that I never get tired of visiting with!!!

It was one of my first too... and a fundamental one at that. I love this show, and feel with all those new songs it was so experimental and fun. Imagine... being at that show... such a small venue, and hearing all that stuff...

I think my mind would be a smoking crater after that!

At this point I should point out, I like all 4 of the 75 shows (does anyone not?)

I remember I was still living in N.Y. and WNEW FM was going to carry a live broadcast of 8/13. Well every fucking east-coast Head ran out and bought cassettes to tape it. I still have mine laying around here somewhere. I love the intro with Bill Graham. Yeah all these shows are top notch.

And then someone had the bright idea to turn it into a bootleg album "Live From The Make-Beleive Ballroom." Spun that slab many times back in the day...

Neolithic archaeological dig site near Mantova, Italy (25 miles south of Verona)....
.....Here's what they were doing 5 to 6 thousand years prior to being dug up:

Listening to 6/17 right now. The Crazy Fingers opener. Garcia's playing and singing could not be more focused or beautiful. Maybe they should have taken a break in 85 as well. These fucking shows are the re-birth of The Grateful Dead. The music is fresh,alive and pure.

That is why I asked, as I was actually there (I lived about 20 miles East of Verona in Vicenza for 4 years). Mantova (Mantua in English) is a nice city.

Very interesting graphic there... um... Embarassed
