5-7 to 5-9 of 1977.

That NYE 1972 is fun with Jerry and Dickey jamming too.

Although it's named so oftenthat's it's getting to be overrated, the Cornell 77 show is right up there. 5/8/77 maybe?

But give me any show with Pigpen rappin' and that'll work!!!

Cornell U was a hell of a show.

But my take on this sort of question is "What's your favorite show that you went to?"
For me, it's a tossup between the 'Warlocks shows in Hampton(10/8-9/89) and the RFK show on 6/20/92- the night of the train horn!

all above are great
I fancy the earlier Pigpen shows
12/12/69, 12/26/69, 6/7/70, 3/28/71, 8/6/71
also of noticeable mention
8/27/72, 6/18/74, 5/19/77,9/16/78
9/20/88, and the '91 MSG show w/ Bradford
oh sorry you wanted one favorite, I guess I get a little carried away

3/28/72 Academy of Music NYC It changed my life. 16 years old and my second Dead show. I had all their early albums and was a rabid young fan. Snuck over with a friend from Jersey. Nothing but hard core Deadheads at that show. Jerry and Pig and Bobby not to mention Phil and Billy took us to church that night! I remember that balconey shimmying especially during Tennesse Jed.... everybody singing the chorus and one giant community smile going...... We were the kids these hippies and bikers and weird people all adopted that night and it was one special night with the band hittin' the note. I am very curious to hear again after all these years, you know memory vs reality..... I know it was one hot night though! Jerry broke a string on a solo and Bobby had to take over while they switched..... Smokin'........

I need to get that recent Dicks Pic, I understand most or all of that show is on there........

My other highlight of that show was Piggy doing Mr Charlie.

What a long strange trip it really has been!

I am partial to 8/6/74 from Roosevelt Stadium...also very into some of the fall 1979 shows, primarily 10/27 and 10/28.

Hard to argue with anything from 1977...just so smooth

And while I am at it, 72-74 was amazing

Far too many to mention (as the size of my CDR list - and problems with storage! - attest)

However, one show I've been banging the drum about recently on another list is 9/19/70: Only 65-70 minutes circulate of the SBD (which is absolutely SUPERB fidelity), starting 3/4 of the way into Sugar Magnolia, and ending with the applause/p.a. music after Lovelight.

This stuff is amazing - the Dark Star is so pure, and yet so mysterious and almost serves as an elegy to Jimi Hendrix, who died the previous day (I presume that the Dead and audience had heard the news by then). The Not Fade Away has wild jams of Darkness, Darkness (by the Youngbloods) and China Cat Sunflower wedged inside, and as for the Lovelight...!

As Bob Weir had it that night,

Pigpen - did you say **** ?

Favorite attended? That's a toss-up between 9-18-87 and 7-14-90, although 11-10-85 was my first and I'll always have a fond place reserved for it.

Favorite for listening? Hell, that changes from day to day. I've been on a big 73 kick lately, and that Kezar show from May has been played a lot. Of course, the Kesey's Creamery show in 72 gets a ton of airplay in my house, as do 2-28 and 3-1 of 69 and 3-29-90 w/ Branford.

I have a bunch of favorties, so I'll just list a few. I believe it is 9-10-91 with Branford on sax at MSG and Hornsby on piano. They are just smoking, great version of Takes a Lot to Laugh and a Train to Cry. From start to finish a scorcher. 12-31-78, Winterland is also absurd, they are on fire. And 11-1-85 from Richmond is great too. These are just the ones I've been listening to lately.

My favorite personal experience was when I had the honor to sit on stage with the boys in 1995 at RFK. I went with a family friend, Senator Leahy from Vermont. We were about to leave right before the encore, and Garcia came up to us and said, "Don't leave yet, I got somethin' special for ya." They went out and did Black Muddy River for the encore which is the Senator's favorite song. I thought that was very cool. And that was the last I saw of Jerry Garcia, but what a last experience it was.

OK, for a show I went to, it ain't even close...Englishtown Sept. 1977, a Dick's Pick's release also. A hell of a party that was!

I won't even get into my favorite shows because there are just too many and I'm trying my best to get at least some of them to ya'll with the Magic Box (don't want to give any of the surprise away) . The thing about the GD was they were constantly evolving and reinventing themselves. There are so many different eras, different sounds, styles etc. The GD was about expressing the moment in music. There is truly something for everyone if you are willing to explore.

Jim - If I remember right 9/10/91 kicks off with a tremendous Shakedown. What a night that was!

awman - I was at that one too, wedged somewhere behind the first set of PA towers (a loooong way from the stage). It's hard to top NRPS and Marshall Tucker for opening acts. Brings back fond memories.
