    August 19 - August 25, 2013

    Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we'll cover 17 years of Grateful Dead history with music from 1972, 1981 and 1989.

    Our first stop this week is on 7/16/72 in Hartford, CT, at Dillon Stadium, the first Grateful Dead show after Pigpen's final performance with the band after the 6/17/72 show in Hollywood. From this Hartford show, we have e start of a new era for the Grateful Dead. From this show, we have the big second set jam of Deal, Mexicali Blues, Stella Blue, Beat it On Down The Line, Cumberland Blues. This is just the second version of Stella Blue, debuted a month earlier at Pigpen's finale.

    From nine years later, we have the start of the first set on 7/8/81 in St. Louis, featuring Mississippi e start of a new era for the Grateful Dead. From this show, we have the big second set jam of Half Step Uptown Toodeloo>Feel Like A Stranger, Peggy-O, Little Red Rooster. This Summer 81 tour has some very hot, inspired playing.

    Lastly this week is the clothing sequence from the second night of a two night run at RFK Stadium on 7/13/89, incidentally the fifth anniversary of the 7/13/84 Dark Star from the Greek. Alas, it would be a few more months until the Dead broke out Dark Star again, on 10/9/89 in Hampton. From RFK, we have e start of a new era for the Grateful Dead. From this show, we have the big second set jam of I Will Take You Home>The Other One>Wharf Rat>Throwing Stones>good Lovin'; U.S. Blues.

    Be sure to stop by next week for more tunes from the vault.

Not to second guess you but wouldn't the Truckin>Drums>Other One>He's Gone>Other One from 7/16/72 be the "big second set jam" from this particular show? Inasmuch as it's the big jam from the second set? =-)

A toast to posting,however you post,,xo. We don't take Our Diseases and Addictions with Us to Heaven as they are only and just things of the flesh. If-Then in some facts of facts...the Devil is the only Disease and Addiction of the Soul. The second we die decides Our next Port of Call and Who then greets Us as We arrive on Deck. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnepPZChA5U Like...the fact so awesome was Jerry; He, indeed was Heaven On Earth, before he checked out... Like Our Plenty of Other Ones, Like that from which we can know we are and sher that from there. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2qIG0lJUnM Was @ The'89 Live & it was a moment of breathlessness and love and... Rock-N-Roll... I love the back of my memory and All of You, TOO!
