    Yeah that is ~43 minute Dark Star so it's recognizable for length alone.

    Another notable bit - in the jam after Truckin' Jerry wants to start Eyes but Keith doesn't yet, so they have a couple minutes of duo improv before the song starts.

    Back to Dick's 36 - rumbling through maybe the best Ramble on Rose followed by maybe the best Cumberland and then the second set starts with a very very fine He’s Gone....

    Saving the awesome Playing for later

    (Plus NO fake fuzz bass:))

    I put this on now. It's the Jerry's playing at the transition into MLB that I remember scaring the crap out of me. Looking forward to digging in.

    What are your other top 5 Dark Stars?

    FYI... Miller dropped an all-digital copy of the first half of Set II 7.13.84 at the usual locations.

    By far the best source available. Outstanding...even if it’s just 1 disc...

    I had that one on a CD with no labeling. I looked up the sequence in Deadbase and narrowed it down to a couple of shows, but it turns out it was the infamous 12-6-73.

    Easily a top 5 for me. It establishes a pole of what Dark Star could be (maybe 3-24-73 is the opposite pole?)

    iconoclasm defines the GD world, once something becomes defined its time to oppose it

    I give it Top 10 status, but it can't supplant 9/19/70, 3/23/72, 4/8/72, 4/24/72 nor 9/21/72 in my Top 5.

    On page 1969 the Live Dead Star cannot go unmentioned.

    I was going to propose a "rule" that on pages 1965-1995 of this thread, we only discuss events from the year corresponding to the page we were on. Then I realized how silly that was and we hammered through 1965-1968 so quickly that I got caught in a time warp. Or something.

    You and I need to sit down over some liquid refreshments (and I'm not talking alcohol) and review some Dark Stars. :wave:

    Am I a bad person for enjoying a listen to Greyfolded now and then?

    Now finished the NFA>GDTRFB>NFA from Dick's 36

    Saving the Dark Star>Dew for last

    Is it OK to listen to these classic shows out of order?!?!

    Or am I just a bad person for doing so and skipping Mexicali Blues almost every time?!?!

    Absolutely not. Greyfolded is excellent listening.

    Not at all. Grayfolded inspired Phil & Friends setlists by revealing that one need only play the good songs at a show. And if that means leaving out Mexicali Blues, then so be it!

    Are we ever likely to see a 'Four from the Vault'?

    Yes, I think Three From The Vault was sort of for old time's sake.

    Is that because no multitracks of whole concerts are known to exist or some other reason?

    "From the Vault" is an archive series that is stuck in the '90s, as mentioned above. Three from the Vault was supposed to come out in '93 or '94, but was delayed until 2006.
