9/3/77 still continues to blow my mind to shreds, as well as 11/6/77.
4/15/78 and 5/14/78 (whoa! notice the numerology??) are killah too.
One drummer - 11/11/73, 5/26/73 and 10/19/74 are pretty awesome.

for Brentski - 9/1/79 Roch, 4/1/88, 8/3/82 and 3/29/87 come to mind immediately - I'm sure there are more.

3/23/95 is a damn fine 1/2 step, featuring a fully lucid Jerome...

And, let's not forget, 11/21/73, which uncorks the subsequent mind-blowing 2nd set!
2: Half Step> Playin> El Paso> Playin> Wharf Rat> Playin> Morning Dew; Truckin> Nobody's Fault> GDTRFB> Saturday Night; E: Uncle John
Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

11/11/73 is stellar also!

A weird one was Greenboro 10/22/89. They didn't do the singing the Rio Grandio part. It looks like someone forgot! Don't know what was going on there. Great show though!

Anyone know another version like that?

Interesting, they didnt sing the Rio Grande-O on 10/16/89, one of 3 fatal flaws that make this show overrated (Picasso opener and Built to Last being the other 2...)
I wonder if they were trying something new (why they would drop that vocal part is beyond me) or if there were 2 brain farts within a week.. Confused

I can't believe that 1979/10/28 hasn't been mentioned Confused

That Cape Cod run is full of gems

Wow. I know I have listened to this show, or parts of it, but I checked this out last night and Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked It's not your usual jam where they build it up into a powerhouse froth. Its more like an extended jam where everyone is trading off ideas. It hits a high energy level but is...different..and very cool. I'm queuing it up again because I had to bail right when it went into Franklins last night to go grab a pint. A 13:40 1/2 Step into a 18:21 Franklins. That's quite an opener Cool Thanks for the recommendation!!

I'm really glad you enjoy the 'Half Step' as much as I do.
As you say, there is an extra dimension in the jam, it just can't be put into words.

Try the night before: 1979/10/27 if you want to hear a killer 'Franklins Tower' - it's my favourite Franklin's ever Very Happy

I listened to all of 10/28 today. What a great show - it doenst get as much play as the night before but damn...Great versions of all the songs. I think I will listen to 10/27 very soon. Have not given that a spin in a long time. Back to back, long ass Franklins. I'm sure some heads complained about the repeat Laughing Laughing

The Dew from this show is great as well. The band practcally stops in the quiet part which builds to a nice peak at the end! The Playin from the first set is large as well. I think this show goes ignored for some reason.

Probably because it is a diamond sitting next to dozens of other diamonds from the same period... tough to stand out.

I don't believe I have heard this one...

Seems like this would be a no-Donna show too

December 73 would have been an awesome time to be seeing Dead shows.

Why are the flaws 'fatal'? And how could they be even worth mentioning next to the fact that they played "Take You Home" out of space? (For all I know, they played it flawlessly, but it's still a flaw...)

But if you're looking for flaws, a more glaring one (although I still don't think it's 'fatal,' this is probably the best show I ever saw) is that Uncle John's Band is very sloppy.
