February 24 - March 2, 2014
Greetings, and welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have Grateful Dead music from 1972, 1981 and 1994.
Our first selection this week is from the excellent November, 1972 of the south and Midwest, a tour that featured some of the best shows of the entire year, which is saying a lot. From 11/14/72 in Oklahoma City, we have the huge second set jam of He's Gone>Truckin'>The Other One>Sing Me Back Home.
Next up is music from 10/10/81 in the beautiful city of Bremen, in northwestern West Germany. From this show in the middle of the European Tour of 1981 we have the end of the first set featuring Me and My Uncle>Big River, Bird Song, Let It Grow, Deal.
Lastly this week is the entire first set from 10/19/94, the Grateful Dead's last-ever concert at Madison Square Garden. From this show, we have Feel Like A Stranger > Bertha ; Spoonful ; Jack-A-Roe ; El Paso ; If The Shoe Fits ; Bird Song.
Thanks for stopping by, and we'll look forward to seeing you here next week with more tunes from the vault. As always, we encourage you to write to us at the email address below with questions, comments or suggestions.
is anything else not working?
Would love to hear any vault recordings from October and November: I have cassette copies of the Wichita and Houston shows from November, and the Cincinnati & Columbus shows from October. The (complete) Cleveland 10/28 and KC 11/12-13 show tape's have been elusive.
Looking forward to listening to this Oklahoma feature.
The music player for the '72 Oklahoma City stream has failed three times in a row just now (stopping 1:05 into the stream, as jskhsmith just noted here). The specifics (of three times at the same place) seem remarkable, but this isn't that odd an occurrence with the players on the site lately - nearly every link, for several weeks now, seems to have a glitch in my browser, and shuts down nearly as often as not (often several times, at different points, in a repeatedly attempted streaming). I'm using Safari v5.1.10 on Mac OS X 10.6.8. What a time and attention waster!
The first link only lasts 1 minute and 5 seconds. Appreciate all you do!!
