Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have Grateful Dead music from 1970, 1972, and 1989.

Next is a big batch of first set music from 11/22/72 in Austin, TX, toward the end of the third and final leg of the Fall Tour of 1972. From this great city in Texas, we have Sugaree; Mexicali Blues ; Loser ; Black Throated Wind ; China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider; Beat It On Down The Line ; Candyman ; El Paso ; Bird Song; Playing In The Band.

Lastly this week is the second set form the final show the Grateful Dead ever played the Kaiser in Oakland, on 2/7/89: Iko Iko ; Victim Or The Crime ; We Can Run ; Uncle John's Band ; Drums ; Space ; The Wheel ; Throwing Stones ; Foolish Heart ; Good Lovin'.

Has 2/11/70 ever been officially released? If not, based on the quality of this segment, it should be.
