    I actually prefer the mellower dead stuff with really good spiritual escalating jams (Which is why I really like the Derek Trucks Band)... but when you find a well-balanced good rocking jam, you can't say you don't like it. :D

    6-9-77 at Winterland is probably my favorite at the moment, but alot of people have it. 3-29-90 @ Nassau.

    11-19-1966 at the fillmore west... positively rock-your-socks-off hardcore dead action... especially the wonderful cover of high-heeled sneakers... 3-24-1971 at winterland is also exceptionally brilliant, prodigious 'hard to handle'...

    other than that, just pick something from say, 76-80... it's all good :D

    I couldn't agree more. The Dead don't rock. They're boring and make me yawn.

    ~wonders why ppl who don't appreciate GD join in a thread about the hardest rocking GD show~

    ~I mean, would they join in a thread about the joys of prostate stimulation via a twelve inch penis if they didn't like butt fucking?~

    best shows in my opinion. GET THESE, you wont regret it. 12-10-71, 05-11-72, 2-26-77. 1966-07-03 is also really rockin who some funny banter (everone was tripping) listen to jerry and bobby before viola lee, its hilarious.

    The thing is, I'm just sorry that alot of the older people who never got it never went to a dead show (same with Phish, though they're different on an entire level, though were really influenced by the dead). I mean, I'm 15, have seen phish, and go to DSO shows to experience what the dead were, but it's nothing compared to who they were as people, too. Alot of the thing is that the sound/recording quality wasn't always so great for what they could do then, either... They're not about blowing your brains out constant rocking, it's kind of a rise and fall spiritual thing with their jams.

    well said... they definitely dont play fast paced thrash kinda stuff (they kinda did early on, for the times anyway) but they are definitely not boring... ever hear raw-unadulterated cosmically charged energy? i have, and its called 'grateful dead'

    Ahah, the studio recording of St. Stephen is what first came into mind... I love the scream and Jerry's solos in that. Truckin gets alot of credit for Jerry's solo, but I believe the one in St. Stephen is my favorite.

    About anything you pick up from '66-'69 will be hard rocking.

    Later shows, too, of course, but not in the same way.
