Spring Tour!?! OR Dark Star 4.8.72 VS 4.3.11

#14513 3 years, 3 months ago
After seeing the Broomfield shows & listening to all but 2 shows from the Spring Tour, I'm near speechless: the performances were SO good. I've been going back over some of my favorite Dead (& a few post-GD & other non-Dead) shows of all time in the past week, & I'm really surprised at how well this tour compares.

Just got my Fox GnoHo discs & just now am comparing dark star 4.3.11 (e.g., www.archive.org/download/further2011-04-...2011-04-03_s2t06.mp3) with www.dead.net/sites/deadbeta.rhino.com/fi..._8_72_wembley2.html. 'Cliff Hucker' says of this dark star, "The extraordinary Dark Star,... is among the very best ever performed from any era....""www.archive.org/details/gd1972-04-08.sbd...4.sbeok.flac16"

I'm not gonna say more than ask, "Whacha Think?"
... that one word is "why?"

That was so sick. Wow. Just wow.
Thanks for both of those, I've listened to Wembley before but not the D.S. from shy of a month ago. That was some behemoth stuff right there.

I'm not sure that 4/3 can be beat... it overcame everyone. It was so magical. Still probably going with the Wembley, but aside from that (and of course a couple other Jer versions), I think 4/3 is the best.

You definitely got a great one in Atlanta, but I couldn't begin to compare it with 4/8/72.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
