No they aren't 5-8-77 is. Which is why it isn't on my list.

Lots of heads think 8/27/72 is overrated too.....I think it's perfection. 5/19/74 is a phenomenal show as well.

The part that can be problematic with such lists is, for instance, I think 69-02-28 is the dud of the four nights, but it is the best The Eleven of the four nights. It's in my top 5 The Elevens.
You aren't interesting or clever when you write or speak in the lyrics of others. Rather, what are YOUR words?

It's dead and over when close enough is good enough.

One of my favorites.

nycdave, 6/28/85, Hershey Park, is the show that got me back on the bus after a six year hiatus.

Nice to see you mention a '93 show. That year has a few highlights. Don't forget 9/13/93 with one of the final Dark Stars and that neat "Tubular Bells" jam.

A couple comments before I continue:

1. 8-27-72 is not overrated. It deserves all the praise it gets.
2. 10-29-77 Damn I love that show too... I reserve the right to edit these choices! BTW 10-29-77 is Dekalb Ill...I think you may have meant 12-29-77 SF ... another dandy........
3. 9-13-93 Will make an appearance in the 93 section ( I scored 8th row from GDTS for this beauty)

7-19-89 attendance ( or trying to be)..riots outside... X factor and energy all over this show from the opening notes .
