4/28/71, in my opinion, stands alone as the greatest Morning Dew of all time. If you haven't heard it you must listen.

Another vote for 3/24/86. I was at that show and was totally blown away by the intensity of the end jam (Brent was going positively bananas). The band seemed blown away as well. They finally brought the tune home and then just basically walked off, like "there's nothing we can play after that." It definitely felt like a tune or two early to wrap up the second set, but nobody was complaining.

Thanks for bringing this thread back!

I agree with many of the choices already listed, though, as a younger fan only know most of the older ones from on tape.

For some others to check out, try the melting beauty of Portland 9/17/82 and the scorcher from the end of the Brent era at Deer Creek 7/18/90.

That last one got me to drive to Deer Creek from NY the next summer, and was rewarded with two solid post-Brent shows, though the scene was a hassle when the cops searched my car. I think the best Dew I personally saw was 7/10/89 at Giants in the pouring rain with two Nevilles on stage.

Thanks to Jerry and the boys that there are so many!

Peace :smile:
