3-6-2010 :

Just an all around smokin' show. Great Jack Straw, Wharf Rat, Cumberland, China->Rider and an absolutely brilliant 2nd set from start to finish. Really one of their finest efforts as far as I'm concerned.

12-31-2009 :

Another smokin' show. Another great Jack Straw (I've really yet to hear a bad one, they just nail this song), a rare Candyman, a heart-wrenching So Many Roads, and much, much more (the night before is great too).

Pretty much this entire Winter and Spring tour were top notch as well, but for my money the 3-6-2010 is the one I'd give him.

I say stick with the Florida's. Miami, both Orlando's, and Boca Raton. All smoking hot. Many other goodies though. Broomfields, red rocks, radio city shows.

Check out the Streaming forum. 5 songs from the 2nd night of last years Coney Island show.

I also have a friend who is very curious about the band.
She has no pre-conceived notions at all about Dead music or the like, since she grew up in Europe listening to classical music.

I think she'll love this band, but I am so biased that I can't pick a show that will represent all this band has to offer to someone who doesn't necessarily know what to listen for.

I love the Broome County show from 3/29 and I have been digging intensely on the recent Shoreline shows.

I'd appreciate suggestions from those who have found the band recently, maybe even those who didn't experience the whole Dead trip while it was happening.

Thanks in advance!

I think introducing your friend to some classic dead would be the best way to start em. Thatwaays they'd be more receptive n appreciative of what furtthurs doin nowadays. =-)

for an introductory to Dead music in general, it don't get better then the summer of 74' but a compilation cd of all the different time periods would be a great introduction to.

for a Furthur recomendation for somebody new to the music I'm going to say last years Gathering of the Vibes 7/30/10 and then MSG 11/20/10 - both great shows played very well with very high energy from the crowd and good songs to introduce someone to the music as well (at least IMO).

I introduced my friend to the music at the 11/20/10 show..... all he knew by the Grateful Dead was Casey Jones and he knew they played it the night before so he was going into the show wondering how he was going to like it and stuff. After the show he said he never seen anything like it in his life.... he shouldn't of drank with the shrooms, it totally intensified it for him. He told me recently that he was worried he was doing something wrong and during the show he kept asking me stuff like "I'm not doing anything to get me arrested or anything right?" .... and everybody is just dancing away. He actually asked me if he was sitting down at one point (and if were in Canada, since MSG has a big Canadian flag).

but anyway he loved it and would of gone again but he's in the air force right now, he just happened to be visiting home at the same time as the fall 2010 Furthur show.
