Grateful Dead

December 6 - December 12, 2010

Tapers Section By David Lemieux

Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have the rare opportunity to play you music from all four of the decades the Grateful Dead were active, the 1960s, 70s, 80 and 90s.

Our first stop this week is just a little north of Marin County, when the Dead were playing Napa on 2/22/69. From that show, just a few days before the very famous Fillmore West run of 2/27 to 3/2/69, we have Doin' That Rag>St. Stephen>The Eleven>Lovelight, a classic sequence for the era with the exception of the opening song, here with Doin' That Rag replacing the usual Dark Star in that slot

Next from five years later at Winterland on 2/24/74, the third of three nights at their home court through the 1970s, we have China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider, El Paso, Loser, Playing In The Band, Cumberland Blues, It Must Have Been The Roses, Big River, Bertha. Cumberland opens the second set, following the first set closing Playing.

From the excellent March, 1981 tour, we have the end of the first set on 3/14/81 in Hartford, CT, featuring Passenger, China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider. This was drawn from the cassette master, to which most shows from 1980-1982 were recorded. One of the few exceptions is the December, 1981 tour, which was also recorded to reel-to-reel tapes, although they are PA board tapes and not separate mixes as was the norm 1976-1978.

Lastly this week we have the bulk of the first set from 2/25/90 in Oakland, made up of Little Red Rooster ; Stagger Lee ; Queen Jane Approximately ; The Last Time ; Cassidy ; Deal. These shows, like the summer and fall tours of 1989 and spring tour of 1990, were recorded to 24-track analog tape, so a proper live album could be mixed from these shows at some point down the road.

Thanks for listening, and we'll see you here next week we hope.

David Lemieux

Good Morning at 8:30AM EST

Thanks for the Passenger. Great Tune! I am in that CHINA --- sunflower, RIGHT NOW>>> So glad to hear it.... Did you know that in this day and age People ACTUALLY Spend their MONEY on things THEY DO NOT WANT and then FEEL CHEATED BY THEIR OWN CHOICES They spend hours giving OPINIONS and prove their WORTHLESSNESS because they ARE PARTICIPATING and COMPLAINING at the same TIME. It's like getting in the WALLET where the CREDIT CARD goes into the MACHINE.....

The pain is unfucking believeable sometimes when God ain't there. And He ain't There. forsure>>> And soon no one will know Him til they meet Him. like you, so beautiful. 3 rd day stuff...

did they do that every show

Right at the end there's obviously some technical details being worked out. It's obvious the audience was not hearing the chatter. Who is that? Anyone recognize the voice?

@ stevepremo

I sure hope they don't include the noises on any 'proper live album' to be released forthwith. Probably scared the bejeezus outta the folks that were there if they happened over the pa. In addition, this has to take the cake for the largest amount of 'dead air' to be included here on the 'ol Taper's Section. If you listen carefully, there's also some conversation that occurs just prior to the ringing. Weird. Definitely weird...
