Tapers Section By David Lemieux

Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have music spanning 21 years of Grateful Dead history, 1969-1990.

Our first stop this week is in beautiful Napa Valley, California, where we have music from 2/22/69, featuring Doin' That Rag>St. Stephen>The Eleven>Lovelight. This show took place just five nights before the famous run at the Fillmore West.

Next up from a little more than five years later is music from 2/24/74 at Winterland, where we have the end of the first set and the start of the second set: China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider, El Paso, Loser, Playing, Cumberland Blues, It Must Have Been The Roses, Big River, Bertha.

Lastly this week, from 16 years later, we have music from the first set of the first show of 1990, featuring Little Red Rooster ; Stagger Lee ; Queen Jane Approximately ; The Last Time ; Cassidy ; Deal.

Be sure to stop by next week for more tunes. And as always, we encourage you to write to us at the email address below. Be sure to include “Grateful Dead” in your subject line so that your missive breaks through out state of the art Spam filters.

anybody else notice the dropout vocals in the 90 clip?

This does sound like a soundboard, but what happened to the vocals? I just started listening after the Rooster, so maybe it gets better.

More Dream Bowl

The Dream Bowl was apparently about 10 miles North of Vallejo on Highway 29 (currently the Napa-Vallejo Highway). Apparently it was near the intersection of Highway 29 and Kelly Road (just past Napa Junction). That would actually put it in the town of American Canyon, but as that town was only incorporated in 1992, the Dream Bowl would have been considered part of Vallejo back in the 60s. Supposedly the building still exists, as a furniture warehouse.

Once again we are treated to

Once again we are treated to something very special. These Grateful Dead treats each week give us the opportunity to remember days gone by and to learn about the music our parents listened to. It's pretty cool to be popular in a few generations.

When this site goes out of its way to provide profits for the Grateful Dead tunes then the fans are really happy and have a place that they depend on for some great music.

Weather Report tease...

David, please fade it out after the last song listed next time, or include the next song (in this case Weather Report Suite) as an unadvertised bonus...

Didn't you're mama tell you it's not nice to tease? ;)

Great choice from '74, BTW - love it!

On Valentine's Day!

Thank You for each hot track!

A perfect, setlist this doth create
for a special treat on this loving day.

Ahhhhhh, I will exceed all expectations at
work today with my subconsciousness
flooded with this and no one will ever know!
They say, how does she do it? I chuckle
and smile with a trump card like this in my
soul; I win almost everytime! I have other types
of trump cards but this one helps me win
with Cheshire Grin! Hope your finger is broken.
Thanks!

I am rocking.

Trying not to be jealous of Broomfield,
being human sucks. I will not envy.
Handled. Next....guess I'll be the same tomorrow?

Aroooooooooo! @----)-------------------------
