    The Dew to end all Dews. And the Scarlet>Fire is a great one as well. Sadly, there is no SBD, but they were absolutely "on" that night.

    4 April 1969- Avalon Ballroom, San Francisco.

    Primed for primal, the band is back playing in a hometown venue freshly invigorated by their successful recording work at the Fillmore West.

    For me, the best shows in the June '76 box are easily the two from the Beacon, 6.14 and 6.15. I feel like the band was just on fire throughout, front to back. I thought 6.19 Passaic was a come down after those shows honestly. It's a fun show with good energy, but nothing transcendent like those two nights at the Beacon. I've never heard 6.18 Passaic but it's on my list coming up.

    Here I was thinking that "The Dew to end all Dews" was hyperbole.

    But I thought better, and realised that there are plenty people in this thread who know way more than I do, so I thought I'd give it a listen.

    Holy smokes, that was good.

    I'm also in the Deadbase market for a friend. My own copy is 7 and I like the one column format of the lists.
    Does anyone know if 8, 9, or 10 use the same format for the lists?

    Hoping for a miracle SBD or really good quality AUD to somehow surface, but as our buddy @Archtop has said in not so many words, that horse left the barn loooooong ago.

    Archtop Soft Agitation: Dead Crimson Cow. Amon.

    I was there that night and Phil ripped off the top of the universe, lobbed in an incendiary device or three and the rest of the band mutually concluded: what a great idea!

    I have Deadbase X. It used two columns. I used to have the one that ended around summer 1993 and I think it was one column.

    9 has the same format as this.

    It has Garciabase and lists for 95 shows in mutli-column format.

    @davmar77 will be along in a while to share his experience of meeting Pigpen at these shows. It's always good to hear the stories from our Elders, they connect us into the history and depth of this music.

    Just looked at and there doesn't seem to be a SBD circulating of any show from this June 1983 tour, so I guess it is true that they didn't bring the DAT or cassette decks Healy used to record most shows in this era.

    Until Queen Betty, Healy was utterly unreliable for SBD recordings.

    Yikes, or don't....

    On all the tapes I've heard of that the vocals were unbearably loud.

    Meanwhile I came across this, a unique take on one of my favorite Garcia/Hunter numbers, and some fine guitar picking.

    I haven't heard that one, but I have the 1982 show from CCCC; for an 80's show I think it is a good
    one, and play it more than most 80's performances that, admittedly, I don't have many of.

    Every time I play Wake of the Flood, I think the same thing, but then there are some of those others records...

    NP... thoroughly enjoying the energy, and the 'little things' passing through the songs on disc one.
    Even Promised Land has some moxie and an extra kick...

    The Music Never Stopped from 4/24/78 is the pinnacle of "Disco Dead."

    Holy Moly! I upped the Oade Bros. aud years ago to the lma from Doug's fresh transfer, and it certainly captures a great show with solid sound, but this source sounds fantastic, too. And the show smokes! I am certainly enjoying this one right now...

    Imo, 9 is the best. It has Garcia base and the 95 data is there but not integrated into the main section. 10 integrates the 95 data but misses Garcia base. 50 is an exercise in frustration all the way around. It’s akin to someone dropping the manuscript on the floor on the way to a xerox machine and then just reassembling the pages in whatever order they were picked up. Plus the fonts are all over the place and the paper is crap
  25. Best Scarlett -> Fire ever. Ok, up there.
