Anonymous said: Top 5 Dead shows?
Oh gosh. This is another really tough one.
- 1978-04-16, Huntington Civic Center, Huntington, WV. (One of two West Virginia performances. The Morgantown from 1983-04-10 is a runner-up)
- 1990-03-29, Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale, NY (Branford Marsalis takes the second set to a whole new level)
- 1975-08-13, Great American Music Hall, San Francisco, CA (Released officially as One From The Vault, contains a stellar performance of Blues for Allah in its entirety, plus other tracks)
- 1978-07-08, Red Rocks, Morrison, CO. (Fun, well-played show from beginning to end. Not too bad for a beginner looking for an intro, I think.)
- 1977-05-08, Barton Hall, Ithaca, NY. (Generally regarded as one of the best shows in Dead history (if it even happened OOOooOOooOOOo). I don’t think it’s the best. But it IS a damn good show, and another potential good intro for those looking to get into live Dead.)
That was fun to put together. Thanks for asking!
