August 22 - August 28, 2016
Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have music from 1969, 1970 and 1987.
Our first stop this week is on 11/7/69 at the Fillmore Auditorium, the night before the show that would become Dick’s Picks Vol. 16, where we have Next Time You See Me, Good Lovin' , China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider.
Next is music from a little over two months later on 1/18/70 in Portland, OR, where we have this classic batch of 1970 Grateful Dead, featuring Mama Tried, Cold Rain and Snow, Big Boss Man, Mason's Children, Black Peter, Dancing In The Street .
Lastly this week is the end of the second set from the final Grateful Dead concert at Ventura County Fairgrounds, on 6/14/87, featuring Space > Truckin' > Wharf Rat > Throwing Stones > Not Fade Away.
Be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault.
I remember those 87 spaces' being way out there, love it. Trucking is not my first pick to come out of a spacey space, but Wharf Rat and Throwing Stones makes up for it.
I sure wish these shows would get officially released....and not "only" available as part of a box set that costs hundreds of dollars.
