December 19- December 25, 2011
Welcome back to the Tapers' Section. This week we'll cover a six year span in Grateful Dead history, 1983-1989.
Our first stop this week is on 4/12/83 at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Coliseum, current home to the Calder Cup trophy for the AHL champions. From this show, we have the start of the second set, Help On The Way>Slipknot!>Franklin's Tower>Lost Sailor>Saint of Circumstance.
Next up is the entire first set of 4/3/88, a show at which Jerry would completely lose his voice later in the show during Black Peter. From this first night of the Hartford run, we have Promised Land > Greatest Story Ever Told; Althea ; Little Red Rooster ; Cold Rain & Snow; Stuck Inside of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again ; Box Of Rain ; Don't Ease Me In.
Lastly this week is music from 4/16/89 in Milwaukee on the excellent Spring Tour of 1989, a tour filled with many great shows. From this show we have the start of the second set, Scarlet Begonias > Fire On The Mountain ; Saint Of Circumstance > Truckin' > Drums > Space.
Thanks for stopping by, and we hope to see you here next week. Have a great holiday season!
It's okay man. Not everybody's cuppa.
