1973 because despite missing members, the band seemed to play everything as well as they have ever played. 1969 comes in as a close second, but IMHO, the jams and playing we're at their peak in 73.

I love 74, wall of sound at the pinnacle. cowboy Bob vocals and mannerisms are excellent. Crisp clear high energy

Sue, 85 is special to me for that being my 1st show, check out the peak at the end of LLR archive.org/details/gd1985-10-31.mtx.loy.30829.sbeok.flac16

Get it Bobby!!

I'm going with 85. I would love to see Brent. 79 would be great also.
And I'm going to sit right here until I die

Can't pick just one year or era and enjoy listening to each lineup, there are lots of gems out there.

All of the 1969 Fillmore West shows and the 8/27/72 show sure would delightful to attend, but there are oh so many more.

Doesn't matter what era is your favorite, go pick up a copy of Fillmore West 1969 [3 Disc Box] and seek out a copy of the film Sunshine Daydream and you'll see/hear what I mean. The Complete Recordings from Fillmore West 1969 were put out as a limited release of 10,000 back in 2005 which sold out in pre-sale. 8/27/72 has yet to surface as an official release but it will someday for sure.

If I'm not mistaken Lemieux said there isn't a sbd of 8/27/72, so it can't be released.

1969 was certainly a great year.

As far as personal preference, I'll take 1970. To see accoustic/electric Dead plus NRPS would be the bomb. '73 is a close second.

For the years I was active, '82 for sure. Caught my 2nd-5th shows logging about 2,500 miles doing so and let me tell you
those were the days!

I was actually told by those that know that the holdup is that Rhino holds the audio rights but doesn't hold the rights for the film.

A combo DVD/HDCD and/or Blu-Ray Disc release would probably be the goal with this.

Don't forget "New Riders of the Purple Sage 8/27/72 Veneta Oregon" performance has been released on CD. This release came from the Original 16-Track Reels.
