Fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth shows. While it has been said that there was nothing like a Grateful Dead concert, I learned from December 27, 1990 to January 1, 1991 that there was really nothing like four nights of Grateful Dead concerts with a Steve Miller Band concert at the Cow Palace in the middle, on the “night off.” If you haven’t heard these, check them out. They included some of my most cherished live GD moments. Scroll to see all four stubs.
Third and fourth shows. While this mini-run in December 1990 gets overlooked for the Compton Terrace shows two years later, they continue to be some of my very favorite shows to hear to this day. I know I’m in the minority as a fan of Victim Or The Crime, but I absolutely love it and the version played at 12-8-90 was one of the finest. The entire show on the following day, 12-9-90, was beyond description. Highly recommended listening.
