    Live Dead

    Okay, Grateful Dead talk tends to take over the music threads where many participants likely don’t care or particularly like the band (which is fine). You’re either on the bus or you’re off, right? So trying a separate thread in the interest of all concerned.

    Someone mentioned Shakedown, so here is a version from one of my favorite shows attended:

    My favorite places to see The Grateful Dead were Red Rocks, Alpine Valley, The Greek Theatre, and The Hampton Coliseum. Hampton was the only indoor venue I truly loved (always general admission!) and I saw 16 of the 18 shows The Grateful Dead played there in the 80's. At about the 19:00 point is, IMO, one of the best Fire on the Mountains ever played...

    New Bern, NC unless it's a home football game then I'm grilling on Devil's Alley
    I've loved how Drums/Space has evolved over the years. While I'd never have a favorite from any show, nor any year, I totally love how it works with Dead & Co, with Oteal joining in the fun (and occasionally others as well).
    Here is one good example.

    Q "Why do you like Duke, you didn't even go there." A "Because my art school didn't have a basketball team."

    Or under it, if in Ole Roy's orbit, and things are going badly ...

    1977 is the pinnacle year for me...Cornell College is a masterpiece from start to finish. I think it especially stems from the fact that Phil’s bass lines were really on point during that stretch.
    I also love Europe ‘72...a nice set list that features some of my favorites that didn’t always get played too much (‘He’s Gone’ on there is particularly superlative).
    Overall, I’m not the hugest fan of super early stuff from the ‘60s (too fast, too simple) or late ‘80s/‘90s stuff (often run-down or “thinner” seeming), but there are also major bright spots in those eras, like the ‘Live/Dead’ album and, as I mentioned in the live rock performances thread, Dick’s Picks 17 from 1991.

    I saw that stand at The Spaceship. Hampton was always special.
