Tapers Section By David Lemieux

Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have Grateful Dead music from the 1980s, specifically 1981, 1985 and 1988. Dead Freaks Unite!

Our first selection this week is the end of the second set from 3/3/81 in Cleveland, featuring Lost Sailor > Saint Of Circumstance > Black Peter > Good Lovin' , Casey Jones. A couple of somewhat rare things here are the Sailor>Saint out of Space, and the Casey Jones encore.

Next we have the entire first set from 11/2/85 in Richmond, VA, featuring a classic batch of songs from the era, including a couple of first set favourites from the era in Dupree's and Esau: Bertha ; Greatest Story Ever Told ; Dupree's Diamond Blues ; C C Rider ; Althea ; My Brother Esau ; Candyman ; Let It Grow.

Lastly this week is the entire first set from 9/5/88 at the Capital Centre in Landover, MD, then-home to the Washington Capitals hockey team, and the Washington Bullts (now Wizards) basketball team: Mexicali Blues ; Row Jimmy ; Stuck Inside of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again ; When Push Comes To Shove ; The Music Never Stopped.

Be sure to join us next week for more music from the vault.

Walking Blues

This has gotta be the worst-sounding Walking Blues I have ever heard, mainly b/c of Bob's singing.

"C. C. Rider"

Imagine seeing the Dead do this song in 1985 at Richmond Coliseum.

marye wrt fourwinds

Don't believe it's a technical issue, the question is presented in the subjective sense and related to previous posts (likely the first one)...

maybe based on the first sentence

But, I don't know. We are working on the 9th! year of the Taper's Section though and I've been here for almost all of it.

Dead Freaks Unite, why is this the title for these selections?

Any reason? Seems like all the others in the link from tapers section have a small intro for each.

cute

That's the cutest "Casey Jones" I've ever heard, that Cleveland March 3 '81.

"Lost Sailor"

Enjoy these golden nuggets, including "Lost Sailor" and "Casey Jones" at Cleveland Music Hall in 1981. I can't stop listening to "Mexicali Blues" and "Row Jimmy" set in Capital Centre, Landover, Maryland, 1988. Many thanks to David Lemieux.
