80s Dead:

Downhill From Here 7/17/89: https://youtu.be/UCgp2jaWFW0

Crimson White & Indigo 7/7/89: https://youtu.be/gspGPBijYFU (one of my favorites)

Nightfall of Diamonds 10/16/89: https://youtu.be/ARFNosrPxwQ

I'd put the Brent Mydland era above a lot of the 70s stuff. If Jerry had been more consistent...drat those years could have been pure fire

I think Brent started the 80s off strong but at some point someone told him it was ok to go full jingle bells with his keyboard patches and it just ruins songs for me.

Kvlt!

How are you guys forgetting that 88-90 with Brent is one of the best years of the Dead! One of my personal fav eras. Check out "So Glad You Could Make It: Spring 1990"

Edit: Someone above has me beat, those are choice late 80s cuts!

Brent's playing is good but I hate his voice and casio tones soooooo much it's basically insurmountable for me

Brent songs are amongst the very worst of all Grateful Dead songs. Even worse than Vince songs (which were actually pretty good).

I dunno taste is a funny thing i guess. he sounds like Will Arnett doing an impression of an awful buttrock singer or something like that

In all fairness I used to absolute DESPISE Phish and in particular couldn't stand Page's voice, even though I knew he was probably the technically best singer in the band. Many years later and they're my favorite band and I love Page's voice, so maybe I'll become a Brent fan in the future (very much doubt it though i hateeeeeee him)

Wait, what?

I get that Brent isn't for everyone and I dont gravitate past 78 often myself but what Vince songs are you into?

Well, I guess it's time to listen to every show from 1973. Kicking things off with February 9.

edit: I wonder if it was intentional that they played 73 shows in 73.

6/22/1973. Vancouver. One of my all time favorites.

Listening to the new box set mix of that show is what got me back into 73 the other day.

I'm familiar with a lot of shows from the Fall tours (11/11, 11/17, 12/06 are all favorites) but I haven't heard much from Spring and Summer outside of the Vancouver show and Watkins Glen.

February 9 is a really interesting show. 7 songs debuted at that one.

You guys got me listening to 73 again

Road Trips V4#3 Denver 73 has an absolutely insane Playing stanza that weaves in and out of El Paso and Wharf Rat. So drat good.

Boy, 2/15/73 is sure a good time. I forgot how much I enjoy Row Jimmy when it's played a little faster, and that Dark Star->Eyes->China Doll is something else.

I'll admit to being less than thrilled when the Dark Star bassline starts up during a show. I'll take an exploratory Playing in the Band over Dark Star any day of the week.

Fixed that for you. But to the question I still favor the Live/Dead DS.
