Good question. I would think it is one of the early years.

Most of 'em were at Madison Square Garden, in my experience. Jerry totally rips it up on Morning Dew like I've never heard.

The first set from Shoreline 87 is a smoker, too.

I like those late 80's shows. Stuff that goes deep, Black Throated Wind kinda stuff. I hear ya on the super early stuff being rockin, yet that crunchy edgy freeform sort of stuff isn't the only stuff that rocks me. A crispy clean piano sound, double drummers, Bob Weir doing his improv vocal shit... :cool:

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone! I'm surprised to see so much 80s suggested here. Personally I've never been a big 80s dead listener, but I appreciate this chance to give it another listen. Like paulinnc I usually think of the early period as containing the hardest stuff. One of my favs is Hard to Handle from Winterland '71 http://archive.org/details/gd71-03-24.s ... sbeok.shnf

Just listened to the morning dew from MSG '87. That is some hard Jerry. The rest of the band is relatively back though!

How about the early primal shows? Pretty rowdy!

Whatever it is, it's a Pigpen era show. That shouldn't even be up for debate.

9.19.90 at the Garden.

I'm not generally a fan of those 90's shows, but Jerry is rippin those first few songs.

Personally I think it would be 80's era as well. The 2 drummers really give them that full sound and when they rocked the place just shook. Be an East coast show-some people like that rockin' Jack Straw from Carrier Dome (not sure of year). Personally I saw many Hampton shows in the 80-s and they were usually the first stop on Spring tours. The boys had a nervous energy-most things were sped up, a little unpolished just yet. The high energy of the east coast crowd really got the boys jumpin'
Check out the Scarlet > Bucket here from '85

Exactly!

IMO, you don't have a "hardest" Dead show without a Hell in a Bucket and Other One.
