So here goes guys....what is your favorite all time show from 1976, 1977, or 1978. To be honest I am so sick of hearing that 5/8/77 is the best show ever. I mean don't get me wrong, but really??? I know if I could only listen to one more show that would not be the one...please don't list a couple of shows. Also the question is not what is your favorite show from each year....it is what is your favorite show from one of those years. I change all the time but at the moment my fav show is 5/25/77 mosque.

I'd have to go with 06-09-77 Winterland. That Help/Slipknot/Franklin's puts it over the top.

That, 11/4/77 and 2/26/77 are my top 3 from that period...

Ok, just to be that guy...
I think this show suffers irrepairably from a terrible performance by Keith...
I know a lot of people love this show, but I can't get past it...
I've said my bit, and will now move on...

10/16/77. The second set is my favorite of those 3 years. Absolutely flawless.

Scarlet > Fire > Estimated > Drums > Other One > Good Lovin' > Terrepin (The best of the year.) > Black Peter > Around and Around

I don't understand the love for 2-26, it seems like a lot of half-baked breakouts and a good Playing in the Band. I don't get the love of the Mosque either, it sounds overrated. I am perfectly happy to admit that the shortcoming may be my own and will revisit these shows from time to time, as I would with any highly regarded show I don't "get."

Oh, and the H>S>F from 6-9 doesn't seem as good as 5-9 or 5-22.

I have nothing positive to say, I can't think which shows I'd pick, there are so many great ones. Maybe 5-08-77 (not a joke) because it has the classic iteration of Scarlet>Fire and even though I think it should be completely obvious that Morning Dew is best from the 1980s, that one is pretty decent.

I agree that the Mosque show is highly overrated.

Regarding Swing... I like that the songs are half-baked, because they take chances. The Terrapin in particular has an alive Keith where he often was hitting the snooze button in 77...

I probably overrate the Swing is all reality though... been too long since I heard it to know for sure.

1976 - I'd have to pick 10/9 and 12/31. Both just get me every time. 10/9 was the first tape I ever collected, and it will always have a special place for that reason. The stand alone Scarlet in set one is amazing, and the H>S>Drums>Samson>S>F is as good as it gets. The Slipknot reprise after Samson blows me away every time.

1977 - I'd go with 5/21 and 10/11. There are so many good shows in '77. And, if 6/4 were available as a SBD, it might be the best of them all.

1978 - I'd probably go with 7/8 and 11/20.

Everybody has an opinion, and that is why we ask the questions!

Your breaking my heart here about 2/26/77. First terrapin bro. And I know there was technical difficulties early on, but that is just suvha great show to crank up and listen to on a nice rainy day. It just flows so Smootly. I respect your opinion, but there ia nom way in hell you will be able to change my opinion there. I would have killed to able to have been at that show on some clean with clean being the word here.....windowpane

2-26-77 was the most psychedelic show I ever went to. Rick Griffin's "Imperial Messenger" was the backdrop behind the stage. Those who attended will testify.

The entire 1st Set of 2/26/77 is pretty insane. The 2nd Set is a bit back to earth, dragged down by an untimely Tennessee Jed...

I don't deny the Sugaree is good, if I were sober I'd add a couple to Gopher's '77 list that I think are as good or better. Definitely the Hartford one whatever date that is, but also beyond a doubt Baltimore from the 25th or 26th, whatever date that is. OK, I added a couple, I just don't recall the dates. I think those are actually the two best of the year.

I seem to remember Playing in the Band is really good from 2-26, too.

Anyway I'll listen to it soon and possibly revise my opinion.

The Playing > Wheel > Playing to end the 1st set is epic, as if something took over the show. I remember thinking to myself when the lights came on for the break "Oh my God. What happened? Where do we go from here?" They also did a Playing (and went deep) to end set 1 on 12-31-76, another great show.

I tend to ignore or not notice Keith during 77 and 78..... Laughing

I agree with you about ingnoring Keith during 1977-1978. That said, 10-29-77 is a fantastic show. The Eyes > Space > St. Stephen is for the ages. Cheers

I also love pretty much the entire first set, especially the sledgehammer opener of Mighty Swell-Jack Straw-Dire Wolf and the LIG is one of the better ones of the year, maybe of all time. And the Black Peter is a monster. The only real "flaw" (other than Keith - thanks for ruining the show for me Koch Wink )
is the Sugar Mag - ever notice they skip over the 2nd to last verse? Then they kind of rush through the SSDD jam and SSDD. But they could have been in a foaming mouth adrenal frenzy and could not help it.

Another great show of the period is 6/4/77 LA Forum. Too bad there is not a Betty Board of this.
