Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we'll end August with some Grateful Dead music from 1973, 1979 and 1981.
First up is music from 10/23/73 in Minneapolis, on one of the Dead's best tours ever. From the second set of that show, we have the big jam of Truckin'>Nobody's Jam>Other One>Jam>Weather Report Suite.
Next is music from the end of the show on 11/29/79 in Cleveland, featuring Black Peter>Around>Johnny B. Goode, US Blues. The last couple of months of 1979 included some terrific playing, as Brent was now settled in after joining the band in April.
Lastly this week, from two years later also in Ohio, we have the first set of the 11/30/81 show in Dayton, featuring. New Minglewood Blues ; Mack The Knife ; Bird Song > Little Red Rooster ; They Love Each Other ; Cassidy ; Tennessee Jed ; Let It Grow ; Don't Ease Me In. This, of course, was the Dead's only attempt at playing Mack The Knife, despite Bob's promise that they'd work it up for next time.
Be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault.
