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?

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)

7-17-89 50k there for a 17k venue. The energy inside the building was off the charts. Basically the whole NE in
7-19-89 attendance ( or trying to be)..riots outside... X factor and energy all over this show from the opening notes .
10-16-89 of Shakedown ( 28 shows since it had been played last. 2nd longest stretch since its debut.
