August 13 - August 19, 2012
Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, as we roll through the dog days of summer with some fine Grateful Dead music spanning six years, 1978-1984.
Our first stop this week is the second set from 9/2/78, the last show before Egypt. This was the first New York City area show by the Grateful Dead since just about exactly a year before, on 9/3/77 at Enlishtown. From this show, we have Estimated Prophet>Eyes Of The World.
Next up is music from the Warfield in 1980 on 10/3/80, the end of the third set. This is drawn from cassette PA master, and features The Wheel>Playing In The Band reprise>Black Peter>Good Lovin', Brokedown Palace.
Lastly, we have a long-traded, and very popular piece of music from 11/2/84 in Berkeley, CA, the pre-Drums portion of the second set of the show: Help On The Way>Slipknot!>Franklin's Tower>Lost Sailor>Saint Of Circumstance>Wharf Rat>Gimme Some Lovin'. This was the first version of Gimme Some Lovin' played by the Dead, and the set also features a rare pre-Drums Wharf Rat.
Be sure to come back next week for more tunes from deep within the vault.
11th Estimated Prophet > Eyes of the World
Since this Taper's Section Started
there anyway this internet song player
could feature a repeat button? So I can
listen to it over without having to restart it.
My listening varies over each time and I
focus on a specific part then something else;
depending on the song. I like to think my
mind is like a soundboard, kinda, xo!
So um yeah---how about a repeat button?
If there is one already, teach me how to
use it, please.
I've wanted to type that for a very long time.
Guess we're all caught up, xo!
A Friday Night...
finds me at the bit-
of a schedule change.
I believe as said changes
advance an become the norm;
they might decide my time here
@dead.net Posts may be comprised;
but I will still be here silently participating by
my name on the screen, it goes like that.
Most importantly----- ------->
This sacrifice is so wonderful, I can only rejoice.
This was confirmed earlier and the E. Prophet rocks ON
Love is everlasting, if you know it's always there--------(---@
The Doctor is In and the day becomes the night-------(---@
Love and Light To EveryOne
It is Everlasting And
I, I, I, I,
This is a new feel to me.. oddly, as i approach all things oddly, i have avoided hearing a lot of '77-78 era material due to it's large popularity ;)
..makes hearing the bits and pieces that find their way to my ears an extra special treat!!
never heard quite that laid back disco Eyes before, and still brimming with the melodic vitality i cherish from those first couple years of Eyes, '73-74.. and something i don't really hear again once the 80's hit, even through the end.
I am loving this groove!!!
Appreciate the feeling your comment evokes! Always had a soft spot in my heart for the Lost Sailor/ Saint. For me in the early-mid 80's, it always managed to convey a real Beat sensibility. Ulysses, The Odyssey, and On The Road all rolled up and it got folks moving on a good night!
a price... > > >
freedom doesn't come for free
it's the way it's go to be
two kinds of freedom
drifting and dreaming
there's a place you've never been
you can hear 'em calling
always chasing dreams
drifting and dreaming
maybe going on a dream now
(I love this part!)
This must be Heaven
rain falling down
Here's where the rainbow ends
if this ain't the real thing
it's close enough to pretend
Holes in whats left of my reason
never could read no road map
no time to lose
just don't ever know
I am sure that I can dance
The Grateful Dead
I'm gonna go for it
Sure don't know what I'm going for
GO for the GOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(kicking ass and taking names! lol.)
I'm gonna go for it for sure!
Rock ON I'm on to the
in which I will sing instead of type
and I will sing my favorite parts louder, xo!
Rock ON Rock ON
All good picks, but the set list on this one is tremendous: all among my favorites, especially Saint >Wharf Rat. Thanks so much for your diligence and discernment.
You Day-maker, xo!
Someone pinch me...
I must be dreaming, xo!
The best lovingkindness for
the week ahead ya'll, xo!
