Favorite albums, shows, etc during Brent Mydland Years

Postby php111 » Sun Jul 14, 2013 5:44 am

Hey, out of the Grateful Dead discography I'm talking about, what would everyone recommend as a favorite in the 80s and 90s era during the Brent Mydland Years? I'm talking about live shows, favorite DP, studio, favorite box set, and etc?

I'm asking because I was born in 1982, and I like the 80s and 90s in general and I like that era for music.

I'm partial to the show 6-21-80 at Anchorage West High School for two reasons...first...it's the only live show of that era I am familiar with...and...secondly...I was there...

Maybe it was something like, "there are none, because they are all my favorite!"

I'm more a song-follower than anything and Brett was a great contributor to GD songwriting. Also he's a crooner, so his live performances just ooze soul. Good songs to look up: Easy To Love You, I Will Take You Home, We Can Run. Pretty sure I always see him gettin down proper when they do Goin Down The Road Feelin Bad as well

Being born in '69 I came of age during Brent's time with the band, and those were the first shows I was able to attend. Brent did ooze soul! My favorites were from Albany in March of '90, a run that was captured on the Dozin at the Knick cd. Killer shows. Particularly killer was the Blow Away from the night of the 26th if I'm not mistaken. I was there for those shows and it was a high time indeed.

Too many to specify really.

I'd suggest listening to anything/everything from Spring 89 til his death.

I love "Go To Nassau" for early 80s Brent. Without A Bet, Dozin, and the new Spring 1990 box set for later day Brent.
