What? And deprive everyone of repeating ourselves ad nauseum?
2/27/81! By a light-year... such incredible grind and grace. In fact pick almost any 1981 S>F and it's bound to be a Top 20. 10/19/81 Barcelona and 9/12/81 Berkeley round out the triumvirate, but its also hard to overlook the 81 MSG and also the Copenhagen... both of those feature incredibly... impossibly FAT, UNBORING Fires. T'was a powerfully magical year for those, '81. imho of course
Here's a NEW spin on the old question:
When somebody asks you your fave S>F
, and that first little audio highlight reel pops into your head... is it from the Scarlet
or the Fire
part of the equation? Which one is more important to "judging" (kinda icky term to apply to the Grateful Dead experience, eh?) a specific Scarlet>Fire combo?
