So i’m looking through my collection and I noticed I never put notes for each show (too many shows anyway). So what are considered the best recordings from each tour?

quite a few good ones we know.
- 5/28 Ipswich (considered one of best, I think)
- 6/1 London

1979
- 3/25 Fresno (solid)
- 4/8 Vancouver (solid, full sound)
- couple from Japan not sure which are best 9/10, 9/13

1980
- 4/14 Milwaukee
*** 4/30 Pittsburgh coming soon I bet will be good.
- 5/1 Largo, of course
- 6/23 UK

1981
- 8/25 Greensboro can’t be beat
- 6/19 LA Sports Arena (decent full sound)

1982
- 9/15 San Fran
- 11/18 Dallas

1984
- 2/3 Greensboro (i think most love this one)
- 5/13 LA (remaster)
- 5/20 and 21 San Diego

not sure about later years.

My favorites:

Tokyo 6/22/78
Fresno 3/25/79
UK 6/23/80
LA 6/21/81 & Greensboro 8/25
The 83 SA tour
Too many to list for 84, but the best show is New Haven 3/24, imo.

madison 1984 is often mentioned as one of the best 1984 shows (as well as Ontario , I think).
