** The band's first "face" was founding keyboardist Ron "Pigpen" [=McKernan=], who not only acted the group's spokesman, but was responsible for the group's early musical direction and sang lead on their most accessible early songs. By 1969, the band's movement away from the blues and R&B sounds that [=McKernan=] had preferred towards country and folk resulted in Garcia and Bob Weir jointly overtaking him as the band's leaders (his growing drinking problem didn't help things either).

** August 27, 1972 at Old Renaissance Faire Grounds, Veneta, OR (can be found in full on ''Sunshine Daydream''. Fans who don't consider the Cornell or Fillmore shows listed here to be the band's single best show usually pick this one. Particularly notable for its half-hour long "Dark Star" and superior renditions of "Casey Jones", "Sugar Magnolia" and "Playing in the Band")

** Garcia began to eclipse Weir as the band's solo face around 1972, but according to the documentary ''The Other One'', Weir believes that what really cemented it was the popularity of "Touch of Grey". Not only did Garcia sing lead on the song, but he was also a natural on camera and he gave the best interviews of any of the band members.
