Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have music from 1979, 1987 and 1991.
Our first selection this week is the very long pre-Drums sequence from 12/11/79 in Kansas City, KS, where we have Shakedown Street > Samson And Delilah ; Ship Of Fools; Terrapin Station > Lost Sailor, Saint Of Circumstance>Jam.
Next is the first set from 3/26/87 in Hartford, CT, which also happens to be the first Grateful Dead show I attended. As long ago as it was, and as high as I was (what!?! I was 2nd last row of the arena, really high up!), I remember everything about the show vividly: In The Midnight Hour ; Cold Rain And Snow ; C C Rider; Row Jimmy ; My Brother Esau ; When Push Comes To Shove ; Desolation Row > Bird Song > The Promised Land.
Lastly this week is the start of the second set from 3/24/91 in Albany, the second night of a three night run in Upstate New York: Samson And Delilah ; China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider ; Looks Like Rain ; He's Gone.
Be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault.
