i won't dispute that each show on the above mentioned list is a good one, but i can't take it seriously as a "best of" list without s single show from 1985. and with no shows between 1982 and 1988 the list is even less credible.
I wasn't sure if you were referring to the list posted within the previous post or the list(s) from the gratefuldeadprojects.com
link from the OP's post. If you meant the gratefuldeadprojects.com
list, I just wanted to make sure you didn't just look at the 30 dates listed near the top of that page because if you read the text at the top it tells you that the project they were doing would be excluding a bunch of shows already widely considered/known as, best ever. You gotta scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the links to their project results. Their 79-86 & 87-90 projects include a bunch of 82, 85, & 88 shows. Just wanted to make sure you didn't miss out on them since you seem to have pretty strong feelings about the quality to be found in each of those years.
