25 Years Ago: Best Days Between, August 22, 1993 Autzen

Your assignment today is to listen to maybe the best version of the last Garcia/Hunter masterpieces, which occured almost exactly 25 years ago today.  Just click above, and I got you covered.

This is the first 1993 show I have covered in Grateful Seconds.  I'm not an expert in late period Dead, since I only saw one more show after July 24, 1987 with Dylan, but here goes.

This is certainly a show of the year candidate, third in Deadbase behind 9-22 (MSG, David Murray, Dark Star, you get the drift) and 3-24 (30 Trips at the Knick).

And you get the all-time Days Between here (top in Deadbase too).
Hear it all here music

Since its 1993 you get a  late period Help on the Way suite, newspaper coverage, fanzine reviews, and all kind of bells and whistles.  About 43,000 paid $1.1 million to attend this show.

RIP to the kids who died driving back from the show. Still so sad after 25 years.
