Grateful Dead

August 22 - August 28, 2011

Tapers Section By David Lemieux

Welcome back everyone! This week we have a very solid batch of Grateful Dead music spanning almost exactly 20 years, 1969 to 1989.

Our first selection this week is from the Fillmore Auditorium on 12/19/69, when we have about a very cool sequence of Good Lovin, That's It For The Other One>Uncle John's Band>Lovelight. This is from a great run at the Fillmore that featured loads of other great music.

Next is something I believe we've played here before, but it's really one of the finest versions of Playing In The Band we can think of, so here it is again. From 11/18/72 in Houston. Enjoy.

Lastly this week is the entire first set from 12/28/89 in Oakland. This was a mighty fine 4 night run of shows, all of which were multi-tracked and are candidates for a future release. From this second night of the run, we have Let The Good Times Roll,Feel Like A Stranger ,Dire Wolf , Little Red Rooster ,Ramble On Rose,Queen Jane Approximately, Just A Little Light ,Let It Grow.

Be sure to stop back next week for more great music from deep within the Grateful Dead's vault.
