Grateful Dead

April 12- April 18, 2010

Tapers Section By David Lemieux

This week we're going to hear some music from the first half of 1972, specifically music from the Grateful Dead's seven night run at New York's Academy of Music, plus a little taste of Europe '72 Dead.

Our first stop this week is on 3/22/72, the second night of the Dead's residency at the Academy of Music, and we're going to check out the start of the second set, featuring Me And My Uncle ; Sugaree ; Chinatown Shuffle ; Playing In The Band ; It Hurts Me Too ; Brown Eyed Women ; El Paso ; Brokedown Palace. the big jam of this night featured caution, and was included on a bonus disc that went out with orders of rockin' the rhein in 2004.

From the next night on 3/23/72, we have a good chunk of the first set, made up of China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider ; Black Throated Wind ; Chinatown Shuffle ; Brown Eyed Women ; Beat It On Down The Line ; Cumberland Blues ; Looks Like Rain ; Mr. Charlie ; Tennessee Jed ; El Paso ; You Win Again. that's a very rare first-set-opening China>Rider, for those keeping score at home.

Lastly this week, a good dose of Pigpen from Europe '72, recorded on 5/7/72 at the Bickershaw Festival and included on the 4-CD Steppin' Out with the Grateful Dead album: Good Lovin'. One of the best from a tour that included many great versions of the song.

Be sure to stop by next week for some more good ol' Grateful Dead.
