Hmmm...more like what period didn't I like?

60's - 70's - 80's were all good.

I really enjoy the period when Mickey took a break - no slur on him, it's just nice to hear Billy free to do his thing, lay down the backbeat, etc. And anything through the Wall Of Sound. The couple of years after the hiatus are really nice and spacey, as they find their groove again. I'm also that weirdo who likes the studio albums. Like, all of them. Like, a lot. I haven't heard any live recording that didn't have its moments, but other than 1968-1978 or so it's hard to find a night when everyone's kind of into it at the same time.

Wow, The Dead never get discussed on this forum! I really love the Brent Midland years. He had such a coarse yet powerful voice and was an amazing musician. I wish he were still alive. My favorite album is One From the Vault.

Brent's voice freaks me out! I mean, I like a crazy rough voice, for example I love Royal Trux... but any vids I've seen with Brent in them, his eyes are so BIG and his beard and his hair are so BUSHY and it's like watching some tiny frightened woodland creature screaming... or something... one of the GD books I read talked about someone hearing from him right AFTER he died, that it had been a dumb mistake and he hadn't meant it to happen, and that really shook me up
