Top 100 Shows Off The Beaten Path With Best Sound Quality

STANDARD DISCLAIMER:


The Best Versions Project differs from the lists in the Grateful Dead Taper's Compendium in what Ribot_for_President calls good taste and common sense. This project isn't necessarily definitive, and its not an invitation to debate. Its a list of solid versions that you all ought to hear. For more information about the processes used to create these lists, please check the, About the Projects section on the home page.

Our idea was to give the community a list of 100 great shows (beyond the usual suspects like 5/8/77) before the archive closes -or at least while you can still get sbds. We started by looking at the results of the voting that took place some time ago to determine the top 25 Grateful Dead shows. That gave us an initial list, which we cross-checked against a list of shows that have been d'loaded from the archive more than 5000 times. And then we closed the book on the "Top 30" shows. Here they are:

02/14/68, 02/28/69, 02/18/71, 04/29/71, 08/06/71, 08/27/72, 09/21/72, 02/09/73, 02/15/73, 06/10/73, 11/11/73, 11/17/73, 02/24/74, 06/18/74, 06/28/74, 10/19/74, 10/20/74, 02/26/77, 05/07/77, 05/08/77, 05/09/77, 06/09/77, 07/08/78, 06/30/85, 09/18/87, 07/17/89, 10/09/89, 03/29/90, 09/10/90, 09/10/91
