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.
Road trip with a group from Drexel in Philly for that show and the Allman Brothers came out and jammed at the end.

looks like someone has been drinking and posting or they were trying to cut and paste from last week's post.
Should have read the rest.
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? =-)
...in contrast to the Veneta, Oregon show in '72.
