February 22 - February 28, 2016
Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have music from 1972, 1974 and 1987.
Our first selection is from the first leg of the terrific Fall Tour of 1972, on 9/23/72 in Waterbury, CT, featuring this second set sequence: It's All Over Now, Baby Blue ; Cryptical Envelopment > Drums > The Other One > Wharf Rat ; Beat It On Down The Line ; Ramble On Rose.
Next is a cool sequence from the final show of the Europe '74 tour on 9/21/74 in Paris, featuring errific Fall Tour of 1972, on 9/23/72 in Waterbury, CT, featuring this second set sequence: Seastones>Playing In The Band>Drums>Playing In The Band. It's always enjoyable to hear the rest of the band join in for a full Grateful Dead jam seguing out of Phil and Ned's electronic experimentation.
Our last stop this week is on the second-to-last night of the five show run at Madison Square Garden in 1987, from 9/18/87, featuring the start of the show, Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo; It's All Over Now ; High Time ; Mexicali Blues > Big River ; When Push Comes To Shove.
Be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault.
I was in SF, looking for work. Wound up working at the Emporium for almost 5 years. Often went by the Fillmore West (as I think it was by then, upstairs from Boas Honda as I recall) on the way to work, but never went to a show, fool that I was.
but I was at Waterbury for those two Dead shows in 1972. It was also a few days after my Mother died.
there is even more of this 09-21-74 seastones over on archive 131530!
p.s. i just love how the vault-meister incentivizes further exploration!
preliminary reports indicate that the GD 09-21-74 'ned and phil' posted here is approximately 4 1/2 minutes longer (!) than the one that is on archive. thanks, vault-meister!
Sounds like a personal problem.
the heart of the beast
proves yet again why I like pre-86 GD, especially pre-80 GD.
heard Jerry's vocals on the Weight about 10 minutes ago: ish. LOVE Jerry, but those vocals are painful.
Then I came to Seastones>Playin etc. Yummy.
I just can't get GD wood after 85. I simply can't.
October 1968-1969 material should be up in a week or 2
I am on the lookout for 10.28.84 - 2nd set :-)
