I think all the other nights are obsolete to 9/16, but I'm interested in what everyone else thinks. The second set is pretty much flawless.

I went with 9/19 but it was a mixup, as Dude indicated. I actually prefer 9/18 to 9/19.. To Lay Me Down is probably my favorite version of this song due to Jerry's singing at the end and the predrum section is wonderful, with the highlight being Foolish Heart. Sugar Mags was good with Bruce to close, also. If I can change my vote, it would make it 3 to 3 for the 18th and 19th.

I think you are referring to 9/18. 9/19 is my favorite although the R&R ender is kinda anticlimactic. Basically 9/16 through 9/20 are all really enjoyable, strong and interesting shows. Can't recall listening to 9/14 or 9/15 but the setlists look pretty good

I went with 9/18 on the strength of the aforementioned TLMD and the 1/2 Step opener. I can understand the draw to the 9/19 show though.

The second set of 9/18 has a great flow to be sure. Wish I would have not been a poopy pants about the GD continuing on so soon without Brent, cause these shows would have been really cool to be at.

I wish would have quit my job, and gone on the 1990 Spring, summer and fall tours..I decided to cut way back on seeing the boys about that time, big mistake.

I listened to the first set of 9/19 on the way home yesterday and to work this morning. God damn some smokin stuff. Queuing up Set 2 at work today

I was there! So no regrets. 9-18 through 9-20. 9-20 was my favorite at the time and I think still is now. I agree that TLMD is the best ever from 9-18! But the Eyes of the World awash in keyboards is too weird...this second set I barely remember, just from recordings, and I don't think it's the strongest. But I remember the first set, during Minglewood it felt like the whole Garden was shaking when Jerry was playing a solo and Bruce was pounding the [CENSORED] out of the piano on backup. That was one of the most overwhelmingly powerful moments I've experienced at a Dead show, on Minglewood of all things. I don't think I've ever heard the recording, if I'm not mistaken it was left off the Road Trip.

9-19 sure gets a lot of props, at the time I felt like I'd been hearing Playing in the Band too much, which shows what an idiot I was. Anyway definitely a great show.

I'm a sucker for Dark Star, and I think 9-20 is a good one. I remember the Greatest Story>US Blues set closer was insane. The flaw may be China Cat, at the time it seemed like Jerry was messing with his knobs every time it seemed like he had a solo rolling in the middle part and when I listened to the recording it seemed that way too. But that show's my favorite of the run, although I felt all three were immensely powerful in various ways but also flawed.

Wow no love for 9/16?! I know that the other nights are great but I was hoping one more person would think the same. To me nothing during the run stands up to: Jam>Drums>Space>(Possibly the best, Jerry pours his heart out on this one)Standing On The Moon>I Need A Miracle>Morning Dew

9/16 is definitely good, but that portion of the show is why... I found a lot of the rest of the show to be somewhat ho-hum...

Gotta love the double ballad action!

Wow that must have been a hell of a run to catch. I'm guessing those were the best shows you ever saw.

Actually, I don't remember those as the best I ever saw, they were great but also flawed in certain ways...I liked the sound of the band with Brent better and would probably put at least 10-16-89 and 3-29-90 above these in the pantheon of shows I saw.

How is it possible that my last comment on this thread is the 2nd most recent comment from this whole section?? (I don't have any content to add though so I'm part of the problem).
