Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we once again feature Grateful Dead music from three eras of the band, with three different keyboard players.
From the tail-end of the Keith and Donna era, with only 10 months left before they’d leave the band, we have the start of the second set from 4/19/78 in Columbus, OH: Samson And Delilah; It Must Have Been The Roses ; Estimated Prophet > He's Gone.
From the end of the show on the middle night of a three night run in Sacramento at Cal Expo Amphitheatre on 6/9/90, with only a month and half left of Brent’s tenure with the Grateful Dead, we have this excellent end-of-show sequence: Space > Dear Mr. Fantasy > Hey Jude > All Along The Watchtower > Stella Blue > Turn On Your Lovelight, Black Muddy River.
Lastly this week is the entire first set from 6/12/92 at the Knickerbocker Arena on Albany, NY, about midway through Vince’s time with the Grateful Dead: Jack Straw ; Sugaree ; Mexicali Blues ; Maggie's Farm ; Brown Eyed Women ; Black Throated Wind ; New Speedway Boogie ; The Promised Land.
Be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault.
