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

Our first stop this week is on the excellent Fall Tour of 1976, the second tour in the band's comeback year. 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 five years later on 9/26/81, we have music from Buffalo, NY, on a short three-show tour before the Dead hit the road for the European tour. From the end of the show, we have Space>Not Fade Away>Morning Dew>Playing In The Band reprise>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. From the end of the show, we have Cold Rain and Snow, Playing In The Band>China Doll>Jam>Drums>Space/Jam.

Be sure to join us here next week for more tunes from the vault.

Dave, I love that you have put up the big jam from Indy '76 this week! I only wish we also got the Help>Slip>Franklin's that precedes it. It is one of my very favorite versions, with a very long and spacy transition. Thanks for all you do!

What I love is you kept the Drums jam intact. It's integral to the piece. Is that harmonica I hear in there? Thanks dead.net.

Indy and Buffalo, two shows I think are or were worthy of release. Thanks Dave!, and maybe the HSF suite from Indy one day soon?

This sequence was first played as a TS selection in October 2007.The jam after the Wheel is quite interesting, as Bobby tried to pull back into Dancin', while Jerry resists, winging it eventually into Ship of Fools after a China Doll teaser. They do return with the Dancin' reprise before GDTRFB and Bobby plunking a few China Cat notes! The first set is really good too, starting off with a funky Bertha. One of my favorite shows, for sure.

That guitar jam by Jerry post drums is just plain weird, sounds like a guitar jam that would happen in the rain forest, really tribal >. My favorite part of the three,
