Now obviously this ia a subjective question. It's in a person's personal preference. In was just wondering what you are all listening to right now, and what you all think ia the best show ever IN YOUR OPINION. Here is the reason I am asking this question. 1st of all maybe you will tell us about a show that we have never heard before, and if we have heard it before, maybe we will give it a listen to again, and find out that we like it a lot better. the 2nd reason I'm asking ia because you saw a show that fit a in your best ever category, and itbwasvyesterday a show we would ever have listed to. The 3rd reason I asked is because I can't at and hearing peoplevsay that 5/8/77 is the best Show ever. Now if you truly think 5/8/77 was the best show ever please Sontag hesiate to list that but please list why you think so.
IN FACT PLEASE DON'T JUST LIST A SHOW THAT YOU THINK IS THE BEST BUT TELL US WHY YOU THINK IT'S THE BEST!!!
I think this can turn into a very interesting conversation, because we may all open our eyes to a show why never heard before, or for whatever reason didn't like. I know foe example that I have listened to shows before and whatever reason just didn't feel the vibe. Then I'm at a party or a listening party, and we are listening to that show and i end up feeling totally different about it.
An example I can give is I remember hearing the aong Peggy-o and just nit feeling the vibe. A couple of months later I was at a friaends house and he had this SLAMMING version on Peggy-o on. So the point of this post is that there are no certainties in life, and I want to hear about the uncertainties. I am a huge fan of 1970s grateful dead. I love the way they sound, and how they feed off each other, and Keiths acoustic piano, and I hate to admit this but I loved what Donna brought to the band (I can feel the bullets flying by my head). I didn't get to see them till the middle of the 80s and the early 90s.
JACK STAW was never one of my favorite songs. I always though it lacked that ahhuuummmppp to it. At this point right now 3/31/87 is my favorite show. This will All change again in the next week or two, but for the the time beginning this is what it is.
SO I GUESS WHAT IM ASKING IS AT THISBMOMENT WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE GRATEFUL AND WHY. I know they change all at the time butbwhat about RIGHT NOW. Maybe it will give me a show I have written off and I'll give it a try.
Peace my friends.

Mine is pretty much 11/11/73, from start to finish they are on, and the DS>MLB>Eyes>China Doll is some of the best meat around... just magical.

2/28/69. Three Pigpen songs in set one. Set two is so intense it just kills me. And then, just when JG has to "think of something to play," they rip off an Alligator > Caution that will blow your doors off. That's the one for me.

Hahaha maybe the funniest I've seen on this site.

I'm going with 6/28/74. I haven't heard the first set but I don't give a rats ass with how amazing the second one is. But if it needs to be an entire show, probably 8/13/75.

Now seriously I do have still hard time to choose my favourite show mainly because its just cca 2 years that I listen seriously to the GD and most of the things I have learned is here. On the other hand I have discovered DP 12 exactly beacuse it was pointed out in different occasions by colonialsrv ... now I'm not kidding.

I think I am now still in the "discovering" era its like the first 6 months of [CENSORED] with a new girlfriend ... if you know what I mean .... Confused

I honestly think 5/8/77 is the greatest Grateful Dead performance ever.

There is a reason why this date has been hyped so much over the years, and why so many of the songs that were played at this show are so frequently cited as best ever renditions.

The reason is that the Barton Hall performance in 1977 is of exceptional quality. It's virtually flawless. Executed to near perfection, with extremely high levels of both energy and creativity, and comprised of two very exciting set lists, it represents quintessential '77 Grateful Dead. It's the performance to which all others are compared.

Deadheads are a jaded bunch. It's in our nature to be non conformist. However, pretending that the preceeding Boston show and the following Buffalo performance are superior, simply to defy conventional wisdom, is foolish.

Why don't we enjoy a listening party sometime the way we used to, and then we might actually have some opinions that aren't etched in lock step. 5-8-77 is the most over-rated show of all time.

Really, how about a listening party so we can discover new stuff instead of repeating the same old stuff over and over?

Hey there, Northbound Train. Welcome.

I reckon there is another reason why this show has been hyped so much over the years. It was available. And it was a nice recording too. It circulated widely, early on, creating a bit of specific common ground for fans the world over.

Personally I find the Not Fade Away in Set 2 disappointing.

As they have released more and more stuff from 1977, my sentimental connection to 5/8/77 has weakened.

Grateful Dead - DP Vol. 03 - 1977 - Pembroke Pines, Florida, 22nd May 1977
Grateful Dead - DP Vol.10 - 1977 - Winterland Arena, San Francisco 29th & 30th December 1977
Grateful Dead - DP Vol.15 - 1977 - Englishtown, 3rd September 1977
Grateful Dead - DP Vol.29 - 1977 - Atlanta & Lakeland on 19th and 21st May 1977
Grateful Dead - DP Vol.34 - 1977 - Rochester, 5th November 1977
Grateful Dead - Download Series - 77 - Palladium, New York City 30 April 1977
Grateful Dead - Road Trips Vol.1 No.2 - October 1977
Grateful Dead - Road Trips Bonus Disc Vol.1 No.2 - October 1977
Grateful_Dead - To Terrapin - Hartford '77
Grateful Dead - BOX SET - Complete Winterland June 1977 9 x CD
Grateful Dead - Complete Winterland June 1977 - Bonus - 12th May Chicago

...for ages and ages, all that many deadheads had was 5/8/77. No wonder it was revered. But I think the embarrassment of riches is now more embarrassing and richer!

I would say that it's the best show from the Pigpen Era (Harpur 5/2/70). Pretty awesome stuff.

I know I started the post, and while I don't think this is the best show EVER, I will say that I have been hooked for about 3 weeks now on 6/18/76 NJ. It is volume 4 of the download series if anyone is interested. The sugaree is fucking incedible, and the energy is incedible, and the boys just seem to be having an awesome time playing.

The best show ever is 9/27/72. I had front row balcony for this show. A Morning Dew opener. Last attics for a loooong time. Dark Star>Cumberland Blues. Fucking amazing that this is the only time they combined the two and it sounds like thet ad been doing it for years Cool Cool .See Dick's Picks 11...9/26 and 9/28 are also very strong shows. Course I'm kidding. The best show ever? Impossible to answer at least for me it is. The 9/27/72 show is probably the best I ever saw and that changes periodically as well. I guess it's fun to talk about, cause it gives me the chance to listen to stuff I'm not that familiar with. Happy New Year Exclamation

Regarding 6/28/74... I think I did a review of that show.
Short & sweet review...
1st Set = Crap
2nd Set = Perfection

What did they do between sets?!?!?!
Maybe Knute Rockne came in and gave them a pep talk or something wholesome like that...
