it's a sin to pick a favourite dark star.

Wise choices on DP2 and DP36, as well as the one on the "Steppin' Out " cd.

I listened to these 3 recently and thought they were great:

11/1/68 UC Chico

3/29/69 Las Vegas

2/15/73 Madison.

It's hard to pick a favorite.

Impossible; it's equivalent to saying "Pick the best page of your favorite book".

Favorite dark star!?!?! I couldn't even start to narrow it down. Almost all of my favorites have been already mentioned (11/11/73, 9/11/73, Rockin rhein, 8/27, 9/19/70 ect.) A new one maybe is 10/19/73 oklahoma fairground and 8/1/73 (B-Day show)

Would 69 even be a celebrated year if it wasn't for the vast amount of GREAT dark stars? Probably, but they sure help.

Absolutely 69 would still be huge. The Alligator>Cautions alone would do it, but you also get incredible TIFTOO's and Stephen>11's, and boatloads of other good stuff.

'69 would be rad w/o the dark stars. i wish cream puff wasn't retired so early. i've found '69 shows, with dark stars or not, carry far more vibes than many other years/eras/whatever. '72 of course has the funk; everyone knows this. i've found some '77s to carry some great energy too. keith and donna brought a lot to the table.

Best Dark Star?

Postby andrew.shea » Mon Oct 15, 2007 4:50 pm

HI Everyone! Looking for some help. There was once an exhaustive list of every known dark star ever performed. :shock: I found it months and months ago here on RUKind but now can no longer find it...and thanks to a reformatting of my harddrive, have lost the electronic copy i created. :?

Does anyone remember this list -- it was incredible, and WAS going to be my tool for organizing my DS collection.

Any guidance, please feel free to PM me at andrew@accessmediala.com. Thanks and have a grateful day.

11/11/73
8/27/72

they blow my mind

i was listening to the 11/11 dark star and towards the end around 32 minutes i think the jam starts to resemble a happier faster spanish jam.

8/27 needs to be heard by all
love the el paso coming out of it too
