August 10 - August 16, 2015
Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have Grateful Dead music spanning 12 years, from 1970, 1978 and 1982.
Our first selection this week is from the second night of a four night run in San Francisco at the Fillmore West, on 2/6/70, where we have this nice batch of Dead from the era: Cumberland Blues, Cold Rain And Snow, Dire Wolf , Me And My Uncle, Hard To Handle, Dancing In The Street, Casey Jones.
Next is the post-Rhythm Devils part of the show from 5/17/78 in Chicago, the final night of the Dead's Spring Tour of 1978, where they played this very cool sequence: Terrapin Station>Not Fade Away>Around And Around.
Lastly this week is music from the Greek Theater in Berkeley on 5/23/82, where we have the end of the first set featuring this batch of solid music: Loser > Little Red Rooster ; Ramble On Rose ; Let It Grow.
Be sure to join us here next week for more music at the Tapers' Section.

Would love a 5 show box from the Greek.Take the best show from each run 81-85;there is at least 1 great show from each.This would also hopefully get us back in the $200 box range.I know the masters are cassettes but I have(or had) many many great sounding shows from this era.Come on Dave...do up the Greek!!
Lucky you were there in person. 5.23.82 deserves the proper treatment.
....into Terrapin. But to my ears the rest of this set sounds like they were tired, and ready for the tour to end.
one of my favorite weekends too.
Loved this show! Venue, Crowd, Setlist, Playing, Weather - Everything came together that day - my 5th show, never got off the bus after that... Would love a Greek release
This run should be the next box. Love this particular show and it's all time greatest Shakedown!
Feb 70 - two thumbs up
May 78 Uptown - Not Fade Away - funky jam. I always hear a West L.A. Fadeaway tease ?
Greek - 5.23.82 - bring on the release ,, Drums with Motorcycle is classic
