I think this would be a great project for the forum. Promotes a lot of listening, which is always a good thing. Also helps various users to discover new gems out there.

I like the idea of a top 5 of each year. Even with the more rich years, 12 doesn't hone it down enough for it to make statement. Maybe that is just what I want out of any kind of best of list, though. To me, they make a statement about something, and I like that. It's like top-100 guitarists. It's so big that it doesn't say much to me at all. Sure, I can wonder why some are included and why some weren't included, but 100 isn't a big enough struggle, or decisive enough, for it to make a bold declaration. Even with 5 shows, the list is massive. You're still talking 145 nights. With 12, we're at 348. Who is going to look at a list that long and find it a useful tool or form of guidance?
You aren't interesting or clever when you write or speak in the lyrics of others. Rather, what are YOUR words?

I discover allot of good stuff on xm like 6/17/72 from Hollywood Bowl, it's PigPens last show but the true gem is the first ever Stella Blue, it sounds so different with PigPen on the B3, it's really beautiful. I can't post a link from my phone but if someone wants to, feel free.

It's all good Funky, I'll find the link no problem. Think i've heard that show, but could always use a refresher! Btw, I got a book for Christmas on how to use these here interwebs so I'm finding links, and sites, and all that stuff all over the place! I'm hangin' 10 on this here lap box.
