You guys are onto something with that 2010 winter tour. The stretch I hit (Broomfield > Portland > San Francisco) was a blast. The inaugural Broomfield and Phil's 70th birthday shows have been mentioned but never Portland and that is still in my top 5 Furthur shows. A handful of rare songs plus that killer 2nd set.

This was the one that I also feel is fairly unknown. I suggested it to Connor when he was often requesting Picasso Moon, but he had not heard this version. Black-Throated Wind was delightful, and the second set,and encore left us wanting more...and we got it a couple of days later in San Francisco for Phil's birthday show!

Cool you guys. I will add one more vote here as well.
Handn't even heard of Furthur until about a week before the show. I am like "Furthur???" when my bros mentioned the name and said it was Bob and Phil and the dude from DSO. What????? Well that sure sounds like a lot of fun.
Then I get calls from them at Broomfield. They are blown away and say I have to go, so I do.
Unfortunately I dont get floor GA ticks and end up in the bowl, by myself. But of course not as I hook up with a bro from Boulder who is trippin'. I'm thinking "man, that sure sounds like fun" and "it has been a long time".
And the key moment for me that night is the start of Scarlet. The last time I was in this building it was summer of 1983 to see the GD with my then gf (and her mom of all things). They played my first Scarlet > Fire that night, the one song I had been yearning to see them play in my first 3 years of getting on the bus. Thought for sure I would get one at the Greek in May that year but not to be so.
So we had only ok ticks, and decide to work our way to the front for the 2nd set, and do (with the mom, maybe that helped). And then Jerry hits that chord. That B chord. Bum bump!!!! Have a listen:
And I might as well have been 17 again. They hit Scarlet and man it hits me. I love this place, I love this music, I love these people, I love this scene and I AM FREE!!!!
Cant say that I have the 100+ Furthur shows, but can say that I have been on a great ride with them for the last 3 years:
SB Bowl ('10/'12)
MCU Park ('12)
