Another great year! You wouldn't have wanted to miss this one either, Josh: the first night at Alpine, 8/7/82. It's a great show, and is also Dick's Pick's 32. Of course, since it was my very first show, I'm a little biased, but Dick thought it was great too, so it's not just me!

re: 10/31/85 if you haven't heard it in a while. The space>drums>space is quite exceptional. There's barely any Drums
in that sandwich.

Might be those weren't inhalants ingested,as suggested, but maybe some eye droppers passed around.

Perhaps it would be much easier to pick the worst year......


I have recently spent much time listening to early 80's and find many treasures in that period of time.

Say you've got a single calendar year to see Dead shows. You didn't have to be alive back then. What year do you choose?
I'm going with 1969. Psychedelic and experimental seem to be the 2 best words to describe the year. The Fillmore West shows and 6-14-69 are some good examples.


Tough decision. It would have to be a year with Pigpen, I would likely go with 69 too, but strong consideration for 70, 71 and 72.
These are the good old days!!

I say '75. An almost empty year in the peak of their career is far more disappointing than a frail Jerry doing his best towards the end of his life.

it would have to be 1977 and all of those larger than life shows. also including the best show ever played-according to most.
it's all a dream we dreamed one afternoon long ago

Sue, I am pretty sure I was at that show also. I will check with my parents tomorrow, because I was 4 at the time! We lived about 45 minutes from Alpine in the early 80's and we went to several shows at Alpine when I was a little kid.

Hey, that's pretty cool!! And I was always up dancing on the hill, where a lot of the families were. Let me know if you were one of those little cuties running around.

I talked to my Dad and he said he was pretty sure we were there. I sent him the archive link to refresh his memory. He said my mom might have some pictures from some of the 80's Alpine shows, so I am going to check with her on that tomorrow

i dunno....while '75 did not have many shows, they all have a magic feel to them. When they announced the "hiatus" at the end of 1974, a lot of us were worried we'd never see a Dead show again, & to hear they were playing again was a big time relief !!
Favorite year ??? hard to pin down to one, I'd 72-74, mainly because that was the timeframe of my first shows.
