Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have some September Grateful Dead music from 1973, 1982 and 1988.
Our first stop this week is on 9/12/73 at William & Mary in Williamsburg, VA, where the Dead famously had so much fun playing on 9/11 that by the end of that show they added this second show. From this excellent impromptu gathering we have some great, classic 1973 Grateful Dead, featuring Weather Report Suite, Around and Around, Eyes Of The World>Stella Blue. That's Joe Ellis and Martin Fierro in horns. Good stuff.
Next ups is the entire first set from 9/11/82 in West Palm Beack, FL, where we have New Minglewood Blues ; They Love Each Other ; Me And My Uncle > Big River ; Dupree's Diamond Blues > C C Rider ; Loser ; Looks Like Rain ; Tennessee Jed > Let It Grow. This is a terrific tour, and if you have the time I highly recommend that you check out more from the month of September 1982.
Lastly this week, from 9/8/88 at the Philadelphia Spectrum, we have the start of the second set, featuring Bertha > Greatest Story Ever Told > Crazy Fingers > Truckin'. This was the Dead's first big tour that featured only three cities, but 17 shows, the last nine of which were at Madison Square Garden.
Be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault.
