Hard to pick a best, this was my birthday so I may be partial. Energy level was high with the temperature..my mom's first show too. She had a blast!! Her fav was Attics. If you get a chance give this show a listen

It was also Veteran's Day, I kept recording right through the Star Spangled Banner with the crowd after the encore. Download or stream it from LMA if you missed it.

I really enjoyed the 7/15/12 @ Bethel Woods.....
Smokin' set list and band played tight. A few highlights were the TLEO from the 1st set and the Supplication jam in the 2nd.

The Red Rocks show this past September that opened with Here Comes the Sun was pretty spectacular as well.

Wanee Festival..... Both nights.... but particularly the 4/20/12 show.

And finally.... the whole fkn NYears run (~);}

Well it certainly wasnt this NYE run, thats for damn sure. Id say, in no particular order:

NYE run 2011
(every night felt like there was no place left to go the following night and yet they took it up a notch and actually blew the roof off on NYE instead of it being a throw away,and lots of Pigpen homage, which. Loved)

Eugene, OR run 2010
(Ending the West Coast tour with a bang, not a whimper, so much so that we didnt even care that we were standing in the rain for hours.)

Troutdale, OR 2012
(Night 2, or whatever night it was tat the played Satisfaction. That was a hot show)

SDSU, 2012
(Total sleeper show with no expectations ended up being a killer show all around)

I wish I could list more, but honestly, with Bobby's awful tone issues (that shit is getting worse, I cant even listen to the tapes afterward because that tone is really harsh) and his entire year of being "lost" on stage in 2011, and the seeming inconsistency of the band, thats al I got. However, even a bad show is better than most other concerts so...its all relative, I guess. I suppose the one consistency the GOGD had was their inconsistency so in that regard, Furthur isnt straying far from the mothership

Katie Mae bringing it!!!!...

That said I am surprised no one has mentioned Hampton April Fools 2011. Haven't heard as much furthur as many here but this is easily one of my 2 fave attended. A prior poster mentioned Sunday Red Rocks 2011... my other fave. Both shows tons of energy.

Would have loved to have been there. Seemed like an off selection of opening numbers. Honestly have yet to listen to set 3 and encore.

Yeah the first set was way off. I was trying to get into it but until Scarlet I really couldn't. It became a very good, and although not every song was played as well as it could have been, I wouldn't say any song was bad. Unbroken Chain was brilliant - Jeff was a beast and JK kept up with him.

THIS. The 2012 NYE SBDs are like listening to a cat plucking away at the strings above the nut at the tuning keys. Loud. Out front in the mix. Just so disruptive. It's a great reason to listen to the AUDs over the SBDs. Everything else is this compressed, muddy blur, and then there is this awful set of sounds repeating repeating repeating that are clear as can be.

2010-03-02 (It Must Have Been the Roses; Let It Grow was epicly gorgeous...and so, so smooth)
2010-03-03 *one of my top recommendations
2010-07-05 (Playing reprise/jam has those gorgeous Jerry tones of '74; nice sequence of China Doll > Fire on the Mountain, The Other One, with TOO being disjointed in a good way) *one of my top recommendations
2010-07-11 (spacey part of the jam section of Lost Sailor; The Wheel; Mountains of the Moon is sixteen minutes of stunning; Blues for Allah > At a Siding > Terrapin Flyer!!!!! top 2-3 sets this band has played
2010-11-16 (Playin>Colors of the Rain>The Wheel>UJB>Let It Grow>Wharf Rat is GREAT; average Colors because Phil seems to be having trouble with his vocals, and an average The Wheel for this band; the sequence is great, though; UJB>Let It Grow>Wharf Rat is stupendous; really like the jam recovery at the end of Wharf Rat)
2011-03-30 (Colors of the Rain>Mason's Children is firey, and a pretty ferocious The Other One with the entire band smoking)
2011-07-17 (Dark Star; Chimenti, and maybe the entire band, must've been listening to some Miles Davis earlier in the day. Chimenti is channeling Bitches Brew in a heavy way. It's not one of their amorphous, lost-their-way versions. Everyone seems to be caught in a Bitches vein. It's very interesting that it is so unique like that. I don't care for too many post-GD Dark Stars, but this is a pretty darn nice one)
2011-11-15 (great ending of 1st set and really nice 2nd set from start to finish) *another top recommendation; I've listened to this one a lot.
2012-04-18(Easy Wind>Viola Lee Blues>Black Peter>Cosmic Charlie - that was an amazing piece of time)
2012-07-13 (good 1st set: Hey Pocky Way, GSET, Crazy Fingers - good 2nd set: Scarlet, Fire, Let It Grow, Dark Star Milestones jam at the beginning, Unbroken Chain)
2012-07-15 (really nice second set and with Terraplin split in half)

**Taken from my listening notes. They aren't intended to be of much help to anyone buy myself, but it is easier to pull a list together from my notes than any other way. If you enjoy AUDs, track down The Human Mic Stand pulls. Some of the best I've heard coming out of the Furthur and PL&F shows of the past couple years.
You aren't interesting or clever when you write or speak in the lyrics of others. Rather, what are YOUR words?

The Madison show was my favorite so far. Black Muddy River that night was the highlight of the post Jerry era for me

Valid points on the bobby tone issues Katie Mae. I'm not sure if I agree that it's getting any worse. I think in his attempts to make it sound "just exactly perfect", he ends up doing the opposite. Just too many knobs and buttons. Bob is still my guy.
Can't wait for Broomfield.
Right now, I can't read too well...
