Here's what Dead Project thinks. Some of those offered above are included.


This sight is fun and interesting, but I take serious issue with the contention that almost nothing good came after 1978. Depending on the song, most TOP versions are pre-1977. If you* cannot find TOP versions of those songs in the 1980s and 1990s then you simply are not listening to enough from that era, and thus, limiting yourself in a big way.

But I guess that is a debate worthy of its own thread.

*(Not YOU specifically, but in general, mind you).

This really isn't accurate. Leaving out Dark Star & Other One as having lists for those songs featuring post 78 material are the ones that should be ignored and Eleven(No post-78), Love Light(No worthy post-78), Lost Sailor> Saint(No pre-79), & Here Comes Sunshine(All best in 1973)...leaving them out there are 15 "best of xxxx" projects, with a top 10 & 5 honorable mentions in each. That's 225 total song versions 91/225(40.4.%) are from 1979-1995, 113/225(50.2%) are from 1978-1995. Additionally, their Top 100 Shows off the Beaten Path project is broken down into time periods with 20 from 79-86, 15 from 87-90, and 10 from 91-95...making 45/100 from 79-95. There can't be anyone who would seriously suggest 65-78 doesn't warrant at least 55/100 on a top 100 list.

1982 and 1994

Dont knock the 1994. Like I mentioned in another thread about the last years, this is a nugget.

Manor down is just awesome all the way around.

That 94 fire is on fire, great fucking version.

Gonna add another vote for Manor Downs. That one has been my fav since...............1982, so going on 31 years.

But also gotta add two more not found so far on the list from 1981:

1. MSG 3-10-81. Had this as an Aud tape. Nice slow pace that really grooves.


2. Greek Theater 9-12-81. A bit faster and again, great groove.

Not the greatest performance but significant because it was on the longest day of the year and when they came out for the 2nd set
the sun was just starting to set and it was big and orange and I was on lawn and it seemed like the obvious choice so I called it to my friend Beth and moments later bam

Copps Coliseum was definitely one of the best I ever personally saw, damn 1990 was freaking great

another favorite is the 23 minute MONSTER version from Chula Vista CA 9-15-85 complete with "twilight zone" tuning to open the 2nd set
