hey..Im just gonna let my feelings out for a while..ive downloaded 2 grateful dead shows from 1970 today..so awesome..it was when they toured together with new riders of the purple sage..ive been a dead fan for over 12 years,but this was the best i ever heard from them..i have never heard them harmonize so good before..on songs like Cold jordan,mama tried,silver threads and golden needles,brokedown palace etc..
fir you thata havent heard acoustic dead in 1970..you have surley missed something..

What shows did you down load? I just finished Garcia An American Legacy. Awesome read, I diffently recommend it. Great insight on what was going on with the band during each time period.

I'm a big Dead fan who saw his first 2 ABB shows at the Beacon last year. Back for 2 more this year!

1970-71 Dead is awesome. Here's a few shows I'd recommend. You can download just about any GD show on www.archive.org. Most of the shows in the early 70's have the New Riders sets included!

5/2/70. Harpur College
9/20/70. Fillmore East
2/18/71. Port Chester
4/29/71. Felt Forum.

Also check out
6/10/73. RFK. Last set is GD with the Allmans!
6/17/91 Giant Stadium-- the best show of the 90's IMO.

I was actually at that show with 60,000 others and it certainly was a great one!
In fact they opened the show with "Eyes Of The World" which was never done before if you can believe that...A beautiful psychedelic night and the boys pulled out all the stops. Bruse Hornsby played with them that summer and added that cool grand piano like the early days which added so much. Certainly one of the best shows of the nineties..."Dark Star" teases all night long..

Yes, that's very true... I truly like it all, even a lot of the stuff other people constantly tell me they don't like...

Ahhh, the Donna years. It's unfortunate that, while playing sooo well during most of the '70s, "The Screacher" ruined it all for me! If you can ignore her howls and screeches the music was spectactular.

I'd also like to know what dates swede allman fan downloaded?

A few of my favs: June 16, 1974 State Fairgrounds @ Des Moines, Ia.
May 02, 1970 Harpur College @ Binghamton, NY. (Dicks Picks #8)
Just about all of Europe '72
I really like '83 - '88
'90s were good shows, (Always had great openers like Steve Miller,
Sting, Traffic, CSN, 10k Maniacs) at least the ones with Hornsby.
Then too, were the '60s Dead. They were just electric.

I think their style definitely changed with each
keyboard player
I'm a big Brent fan and on a quest to get
as many of his shows as I can
He could wail,both vocally and musically

Yea, I'd agree that their style changed with every keyboard player. They were all great in their own way.

Not including Pig cuz he was in a class by himself, I'd have to go with Keith G. He was a really talented musician. I can almost see him doing sonatas with Beethoven in another life. And although his tenure was brief, TC was pretty cool. Very psychedelic/avant garde.

But they were all great. And the band was great in every phase or era.

It's all about Pig. His years with the band was when they were at thier best. any of the shows form '67-'69 are absolutley out of control i highly recomend 11/2/69 the best Dark Star EVER and that really is the truth

i really enjoy the brent yrs of the band. his keyboard work seemed to be more out front than godchaux's, probably because brent didn't mind playing something electric. he also was able to give weir and garcia a vocal break for a couple of songs. i always liked his never trust a woman...i'm not sure if you could consider brent to be a blues style singer but on that song he really sang from his gut...
who didn't love donna g.'s wail during playing in the band...sounded like coyotes looking for food... a band than could take something out of nothing and turn it into magic...

I hope I'm wrong, but are you saying that you enjoyed having Donna in the band? I've not heard a single Donna show where I thought she gave a decent performance.
Ah, the humanity

I have to say, 1970 has always been my favorite year for the Dead. I love 67-69, but they started writing more songs, refining their sound, while also giving us some of the best Dark Stars of all time; 2-13-70, 6-24-70, 9-19......................Unfortunately, it's the year with the least amount of soundboards. The 6-24-70 Portchester show, is my favorite all time show and it's available only aud, but thatnks to the relatively recent Portchester project, there are some very good auds circulating from all of those 1970 Cap Theater shows, which are all great shows. All other years have their own moments, IMO, but '70 is it, if I have to pick one.

otherhandmer- i often wondered why someone didn't tell the band that donna sounded
like coyotes screeching for food and tell her to stop doing it....christ, someone had to have noticed that....

I'm new to the Dead, and have just started exploring their live output. Just got DP #3, and it is mighty impressive, esp. the EstProphet>Eyes>Wharf>Terrapin>MorningDew on Disc 2. I also like Nightfall of Daimonds, Go to Nassau, and Europe '72.

Anyone have any suggestions on what I might want to explore next, esp DPs?

The Dick's Pick # 28 that came out a year or two ago is tremendous -- but then I'd think that of most any show of that era (Hundred Year Hall, Rocking at Ringlein etc.) -- like PauliG I'm partial to the Europe 72 era of the band -- Donna & all.
That Dick's Pick is actually two shows, one from Salt Lake City in Feb. 73 -- they play stuff from Wake, which hadn't yet been released, including a tremendous Eyes of the World.
Has anyone ever head the David Nelson Band's "Keeper of the Key" disc? It's from 6-7 years ago now, a live show that is quite reminiscent of this era of the Dead -- the version of The Wheel on this CD is my favorite.
