February 16 - February 22, 2009
This week we have four big jams for you, three of which are from 1973, and one from 1969.
Our first stop is at the Dream Bowl in Vallejo, CA, a dance hall located in this North Bay city. From this concert, which took place just a few days before the famous Fillmore West 1969 run of shows, we have Doin' That Rag>St. Stephen>The Eleven>Lovelight. Not quite the Live/Dead suite, but pretty close. And so well played!
Jumping ahead four years, we have both halves of the big jam from 2/19/73 in Chicago. The first portion features He's Gone>Truckin'>The Other One, with plenty of fine jamming throughout, and the show would end with the equally interesting sequence of Eyes of the World>China Doll, Sugar Magnolia, Casey Jones. This tour was loaded with great music, and this is certainly no exception.
Our last big jam of the week is from the very next show, on 2/21/73 in Champagne-Urbana, IL, and features the perfect combination of Truckin'>Eyes of the World. I really can't get enough 1973 Grateful Dead music.
Make sure you come by next week for music from 1966, 1969, 1973 and 1974. It's a busy week next week here at the Tapers' Section, so try not to miss it.
I can't get enough of 1973 either. Thanks again for all the great music.

everyone sounds so young in 1969.... i love it!
thank you for sharing this, david-
Nice and early, too; the only thing better than pre-work Dead is post-work Dead. And I'm with you on 73.
outstanding selections! it would be so sweet if I could get paid to listen to Grateful Dead. I would be a billionaire.
