#55 11/30/1980 Fox Theatre, Atlanta, GA
#54 7/6/1984 Alpine Valley Music Theatre, East Troy, WI
#53 6/7/1980 Folsom Field, University of Colorado, Boulder, CO
#52 3/26/1990 Knickerbocker Arena, Albany, NY
#51 5/10/1980 Civic Center, Hartford, CT


With this installment of POL, we have now completed half of the Top 100. I think #55 and #52 are pretty well-known shows to most - and have been officially released, and to a lesser extent #51 due to it's high praise from folks (such as Zephyr) around these forums. #53 and #54 are probably under-the-radar due to the fact that they are only available via Audience recordings, and unfortunately there are a lot of SBD snobs out there (#51 has a 2nd Set SBD but it is of poor quality). #55 and #51 lean heavily on their great 2nd Sets, while #54 and #52 boast more balance with really good 1st Sets. #53 is a case of Jerry at his best, and a show that far exceeds it's appearance on paper.

Edit: Obvious to notice 3 out of 5 from 1980 - getting deeper into some 1980 action. Great year.

YES! Some serious shows.
The only one I'm not pretty familiar with is 6/7/80. Probably because it's an AUD and I'm a non-repentant SBD snob. I can do a good AUD, but I don't seek them out. I'll have to put this on the radar for future listening.

5/10/80 has been a love since Zephyr first turned me on to it. Ignore Jerry blowing basically all the lyrics to China Cat, that 2nd set pre-drums is stacked like a brick shithouse...
China>Rider; Stranger> Comes a Time> Estimated> Gone> UJB

Dozin at the Knick show, great!

I know of 7/6/84 from you, Swami, and I concur.

11/30/80 is the newest of the Dave's Picks series (that I am aware of)... And the first Brent era selection. Great show, from a great period of Deadness.

3 x 1980 this round, nice.

Alpine '84 deserves inclusion for that mighty, mighty Dear Mr. Fantasy all by itself! This is a good cluster. I'll be giving the Boulder show a good listen this weekend. The next day is more familiar territory (UJB>PITB>UJB) but brushing up on day one is the next order of business.

Swami: is there a reason you recommend, for 11/30/80, the matrix over the official release?

No, not really. I really like the Matrix, and haven't heard the official release - that's it.

#54 7/6/1984 Alpine Valley Music Theatre, East Troy, WI

I've listened to this one many, many times after discovering it a few years ago. While digging through my old downloads from the Taper's section, I found a couple of pieces of this show as SBDs during that little hunt (Jack Straw > Big RR, and Space > end of set 2). The sound on these, IMO, is better than the aud, but there is something pretty cool hearing the crowd erupt when they know Mr. Fantasy is coming. Either way, this one is definitely worthy of a POL.

Yes, the portions released for the taper's section were usually pretty cleaned up.
I wonder where these came from? The Vault I would imagine... Why haven't these SBDs seen the light of day?

I agree, especially considering that so many of the "new" things show up in the torrents before they are even available for purchase. You would think that those connected people, like The Great Charlie Miller, would know who has them and how to get them.

Perhaps those got from the GD vaults over to Rhino at a time when there wasn't someone on the inside that was able to share them before Rhino put them on lock down.

I just chalk it up to another wonderful GD mystery!
