Lot of "Wang Dang Doodles" in '83. Gotta love the few St. Stephens. A couple on my iPod now that I like are 9/2/83 and 10/22/83.

The early 80s get a bad rap because they weren't always very adventurous set list wise. But that period, which was the period when I saw most of the shows I saw, had it's share of dandies.

It's not what they played, it's how they played it.

If I can make a suggestion....The second set of 4/26/83 was one of the hands down best concerts I'd had the chance to have seen. The Phil bombs at the end of Truckin require a subwoofer to get the full effect. I seem to remember being blown back into the seat. The Help-Slip-Franklin and (later on) Dew are high water marks

The Sugaree from Lake Placid is easily top 5, for me. The MSG St Stephen show is another highlight.

I remember those years fondly as I was just getting on the bus. Hampton 83 stood out as did Richmond in the fall.

Syracuse '84 has the slammin' Jack Straw.

That's when I started eyeing the Dead a lot. I love most eras of the Dead - but these 2 years are my favorite - maybe just because I was there... I just love their whole sound then - and Jerry's warm tone. Thats still the ideal tone that i would love to nail. So good!
