Greetings, and welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have some 1972 and 1977 Grateful Dead music, two of our favourite years.
Our first stop this week is on 11/15/72 in Oklahoma City, where we have Box of Rain, Deal, Cumberland Blues, Around and Around, China Sunflower>I Know You Rider, Promised, Ramble On Rose, Mexicali Blues.
From just a few nights later on 11/19/72 in Houston, we have Dark Star>Weather Report Suite Prelude, Mississippi 1/2 Step, Around and Around, Big Railroad Blues, Sugar Magnolia. Virtually every show in 1972 had either a Dark Star or an Other One, and they were all deep and exploratory.
Lastly this week, from Colgate University in Hamilton, NY, on 11/4/77 we the entire first set featuring Bertha>Good Lovin', Brown Eyed, Cassidy, Roses, Sunrise, Minglewood, Dupree's, Let It Grow. This is part of a magnificent four night run of shows, 11/2 in Toronto, 11/4, 11/5 in Rochester and 11/6 in Binghamton.
Stop by next week for some more great jams. And as always, we encourage you to write to us at the email address below with any and all questions about the Grateful Dead.
Does anyone recall which Grateful Dead Hour David played the "Jones Band"
introductions from the start of the 2nd set of this show? I tape I have must be a
40th generation audience recording.
This is one of the best sets overall ever on Taper's Section. Always thought the Colgate was a little underrepresented in the shadow of Binghamton.
Not complaining, just being mindfully noticing or maybe just going def, excellent musical play between the boys jerry just begining his thirties GRRRAAATTEEE!!!! FULL!!!
The infamous Jones Gang rides again....
Time for an official release of this one.
Another GRATE one!! Love the Phil solo!!!!
