(Don't mention line ups, Im talking quality and x factor)
I've seen a handful of shows from every tour post Jerry, and heard almost all.
Going back in time, this is what we have heard...
98' = people were excited about Kimock and Karan, not to mention the horns.
00' No phil. This tour was a joke.
02 - everybody raving about "The core 4" suddenly Herring has tons of fan boys, its touted as one of the best Dead tours ever (how so, I dunno)
03' / 04' The Warren Era - again, more fluff. Warren can harmonize, brings a different tone ect. People claim its the best ever.
Furthur - Everybody calling it the best ever.
So what are your thoughts and comparisons ?
my point is every incarnation was said ti be "best ever".
