Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have music from a seven year period in Grateful Dead history, 1976-1983.

From 10/1/76 in Indianapolis, we have the big second set jam of Dancing In The Street>Drums>The Wheel>Ship of Fools>Dancing In The Street>Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad>One More Saturday Night.

From two years after this Buffalo jam, we have the start of the second set from the final night of a three-night run at the Hult Center in Eugene, OR, on 8/31/83, featuring a jammingly good sequence of w tour before the Dead hit the road for the European tour.
