Let's say you have a guy who wants to try out the Brent Era... you want to blow his socks off... what show do you pick?

One show only (duderino...), and only one show....

I am going to go with... saying I need to think about it! Cool

The ulterior motive of this thread is to, for the first time in GD forum history, get you to pick only one show... Laughing

This is hard...
I am really leaning toward something in Fall 1979, but as soon as I start closing in, other years like 81 and 83 pop into my mind... AH!!!!!!
This may be the thread that is my final undoing. Laughing

Rather than thinking too hard about this, I'm going with my gut - 9/6/80.

Venue Long Beach Arena
Location Long Beach, CA
Date 8/28/81

One:
Jack Straw ; They Love Each Other ; Me And My Uncle > Big River ; Althea > Little Red Rooster ; Brown Eyed Women > Let It Grow > China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider

Two
Shakedown Street [#13:37] > Lost Sailor [6:43] > Saint Of Circumstance [6:10] > The Wheel [6:00] > Jam [5:52] > Never Trust A Woman [7:#21] > Jam [3:51] > Drums [5:51] > Space [12:#41] > Truckin' [8:30] > Wharf Rat [7:48#] > Sugar Magnolia
Encore U.S. Blues



This show has a bit of everything. First it is a top notch soundboard. Secondly it has a pretty good representation of of songs from a good amount of albums. It also shows the band's talent for different genres; You have some blues in there, some funk with the killer Shakedown, some flat out rock and roll with the Sugar Mags and also some KILLER improve with the Wheel>Good Times Blues>Jam, and it also has a can't miss Drums. There is their biggest ' Hit ' with a blistering Truckin which brings some familiarity to the party. Oh and Brent gets a nice workout during Good Times Blues where he shines.

As a whole I think it hits on just about everything that makes me love the dead.

OK - this was tough but I chose this because it does not really let up the whole show (i.e.- no super slow drawn out tunes like FOTD, Row Jimmy, Peggy-O which could bore a newb), sound Q is great, and Jerry shreds.

09-02-83 BSU Pavilion, Boise State University, Boise, Id. (Fri)
1: Wang Dang Doodle> Jack Straw, TLEO, Mama Tried> Big River, B. E. Women, Minglewood, Big RxR Blues, L. L. Rain> Deal
2: Help> Slipknot> Franklin's, Estimated> Eyes> Drumz> Throwing Stones> GDTRFB> Black Peter> Sugar Magnolia E: Baby Blue

Yes, this is certainly a good place to look!

Duderino... I need to revisit that one.
That's the show where Phil has conquered the citizens of the town, right?

Yup..Citizens of Boise....Submit or Perish for you are a conquered people.

I had an audience recording of this and the beginning was a little garbled so I thought I heard " Citizens of Boise...Suck Dick for you are a mumble mumble people."

Ahh the maturity of a 16 year old Laughing

5/6/81 (FOB Aud, not the DP version): He's Gone>Caution Jam>Spanish Jam sums it up. Check Latvala's review in DeadBase.

Listened to this segment everyday for a month or so after Jer checked out.

This was my first show and did not fully appreciate it at the time. Great keys by Brent throughout. It's insanely genius the spaces he fills in on Help=> Slip!
Also, best 'Wharf Rat' ever.

Yup, that's a good choice to hook someone in. Lots of rcokers, classics and some meaty jamming in the 2nd set, but not ridiculously long, spacey jamming.
Great pics from Boise! I also love those pics from Park West a few days later (forget the photographer)

As usual, you're right and I'm wrong. Sorry. I must be mistaken. I won't offer my experience anymore. You are the master of all opinion even for shows you never attended.

Deadhead snobbery in it's finest...
Your response here is totally ridiculous.
Yes, Duck, you were there... great. For the record, you do not have to have been in attendance at something to voice an opinion on it. It's a form of deadhead snobbery and everyone knows it.

I offered an opinion on shows I have listened to, sorry if that bothers you... That type of "I was there and you weren't" crap doesn't go to far around here, and making yourself a victim of my opinion in response, when I was completely civil, is lame. I think we are all old enough to tolerate dissenting opinions...

I am sure, for that matter, I am not the only one who would say that one of those two shows is mediocre at best...

Not too familiar with 8/4/79 but I like 8/5/79 for sure - great Scarlet/Fire.

That's funny Swami, because you have told me you didn't like 8/5/79 very much.

I went and listened to 8/4, because I was pretty sure that one was less interesting to me... I will post a partial review of the show.

You're gonna make it so that nobody wants to praise a show anymore, just to have you throw a bucket of cold water on their enjoyment. We know how you feel about these shows. Why don't you give it a rest?

Stop over-reacting.
No one is scared to post their thoughts about shows, you telling me not to do so is more detrimental than me doing so... freedom of speech here Duck, that means freedom to disagree as well... and if they are scared that I might not like their show, well, they have bigger problems than I can help them with by biting my tongue.

Good. We agree then. 8-4-79 was a good show. Very Happy Especially the humongor Tennessee Jed. Laughing

I definitely like 8/5/79 a lot more, and I will give the humungous PITB>Orbital on 8/4 credit. I still consider most of 8/4 to be, well, see my review...

Last evening I was thinking about something:

Have You ever been to a place (a friend's home, a pub etc) where somebody tries to "get" you to some kind of new band / music style / thing .... but .... you just understand in like 2 seconds time that what he/she tries to make you listen is a little above George Michael (with all the due respect): this is what happened to me a couple of days before ......... Then suddeny that person understands that you are simply not interesed, and asks You ..." well?! ... then ... tell me what kind of music do you listen to???!!!!"

There goes my question:
What GD concert would You put very ... VERY .... VERY LOUD in his speakers .... please tell me the most non-deadhead UNACCESSABLE concert which would make him understand that I showed him "politely" my middle finger!!!
I am not looking for bad concerts ... but for REAL NASTY DEADHEADs ADULT MUSIC!!!!!

Twisted Evil

For a newbie, I would probably pick one of the Heartbeats shows from '68. Unless you can enjoy long, exploratory jams with nearly no lyrics for hours on end, these will turn off a casual listener in no time! My wife hate them! LOL

I'd probably start with 10/10/68. I like the 10/8/68 show a bit better personally.

I would completely disagree with 68 being non-deadhead accessible, at any show.

5/8/77 is probably the easiest show to get people into... it was many of our firsts, for example.

The 1st set is solidly performed... with some jamming...
The 2nd set is solidly jammed and performed, and really opens eyes... BUT, if they can't get past the 1st set, they probably won't dig the 2nd set.

The guy who got me into the GD, he put on 5/8/77, specifically, S>F, and told me to just close my eyes and follow the music.
That pretty much sold me right then and there.

5/8/77 is probably the easiest show to get people into... it was many of our firsts, for example.

The 1st set is solidly performed... with some jamming...
The 2nd set is solidly jammed and performed, and really opens eyes... BUT, if they can't get past the 1st set, they probably won't dig the 2nd set.

The guy who got me into the GD, he put on 5/8/77, specifically, S>F, and told me to just close my eyes and follow the music.
That pretty much sold me right then and there.


I may have misunderstood, but I thought he was looking for the LEAST accessible show, considering the "middle finger" reference.

One of the best shows of the year, for reasons that transcend the Dark Star.

9/2/79 or 11/1/79. More the 11/1 than 9/2. Scarlet Eyes is a masterpiece with an orbital.

Welcome aboard!

I'd love to see you write a review of either night if you feel up to it.
First hand accounts are always awesome.

I think the whole Fall '79 tour is special.

I am really leaning toward something in Fall 1979, but as soon as I start closing in, other years like 81 and 83 pop into my mind... AH!!!!!!
This may be the thread that is my final undoing. Laughing


Based on this statement, seems like an epic fail.
Was anyone able to pick just one show?
And if so, was it from the correct era of the band?

OOOHHH dead heads.

Looks like some managed... I can't.
I wonder if their picks still hold true today?

Oops, I guess if I'm going to critique, I should enter my choice.

Based on the criteria of a single show, from the Brent era, to be used to introduce someone to the band, I would pick 10-31-80.

Not the "best" show of the era, but I think as a primer, it serves quite well. Acoustic and electric sets to show the versatility of the band. Plenty of covers to show the roots and foundation of the group, and many of the "key" or signature tunes, displayed in a way that allows the beauty of the song itself to be displayed, and not just the virtuosity of the players, though there is plenty of that as well.
Added bonus: "Dead Ahead" can be used for those who need a visual aid.

Yes, I was able to pick one show. Thanks for weighing in with 10/31/80, although I would not consider that a heavyweight, even within the year of 1980.

10-31-83 was the only show that I had tickets for, front row, center. I take that back...4-6-84 Las Vegas (but that doen't count). Not a great show, but a good show. The final St. Stephen if I'm not mistaken. We were actually a bit too close in terms of the sound system. Stage monitors were louder than the PA system up that close. Dosed heavily.

Would you say 4/6/84 was better for you than 10/31/83, Duck?

Not at all. I thought 4-6-84 was really disjointed and sloppy. One of the most "coked out " shows I ever saw. You can here it on the tapes.

No brainer for me.

6/20/83 Merriweather Post Pavilion

Sickest show I have ever attended complete with wicked lightning storm interrupting sound, flooding, an "aboriginee rap" and weird Little Star from Bob. Read my whole review here.

If I was turning someone onto a show from the Brent era I would have to go with Philadelphia Spectrum 3-31-87. I have talked about this show quite a bit on this forum. I just think that show has it all. The boys were rocking that night on all cylinders. From the beginning chords of Jack Straw, you can tell that this show is just going to kick ass. The Franklin's Tower is awesome to. The Terrapin Station in the second set is amazing. This show is just in my opinion incredible.
Just an opinion....but if you haven't listened to this show yet, do yourself a favor and give it a listen. Just the energy level right from the start will let you know how incredible of show you are about to listen to is....

I did listen to this one not long ago, and know what you mean about the energy. Another high-energy type show from the same tour, actually 4 days prior - is one that really hit me like a truck because I've never heard anyone talk about it. 3-27-87 Hartford. If you like 3/31, I'm pretty sure you will like that one as well.

I think 87 benefitted from their back to basics approach, which allowed them to push tempo, etc...

I remember liking a lot of that Spring 87.

Another hot show from that tour 4/10/87 UIC Pavilion. When they were on in 1987, they were really on.

If greenfox is still kicking he should tell us again how they wouldn't start some show until "jerry got his heroin back"... which no one else has never corrobarated.
