Tapers Section By David Lemieux

Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we will remain within a four year span of Grateful Dead history, with some great music from 1978 and 1982.

Our first stop is in Chicago on 2/1/78, where we have music from the final show of a three night run, Samson and Delilah, It Must Have Been The Roses, Estimated Prophet>He's Gone. This short six show Midwest tour featured great shows in Chicago, Madison, Milwaukee and Cedar Falls.

Next is music from 2/19/82 in San Diego, where we have New Minglewood Blues, Alabama Getaway>Promised Land, Ship of Fools, Lost Sailor>Saint of Circumstance.

Lastly this week is music from Nassau Coliseum on 4/11/82 during the excellent Spring Tour of 1982. From that show we have Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo > Franklin's Tower > El Paso ; Candyman > Little Red Rooster, with the Rooster featuring some terrific scat singing by Brent.

Be sure to join us next week for more music from deep within the vault.

great week

I'm very excited about this week's line-up. Looks golden, my friends! The first selection is a warm-up to one of my very favorite Dick's Picks from Madison and Cedar Falls. This jam is a prelude to what's to come the following several nights.

I'm fast becoming a spring '82 fan, so I can't wait to delve into the jam from Nassau!! And the San Diego treat looks tasty.

Peace,
Matt

Ah, Samson in the morning, w a cup of Caffe Verona !

The short 6 show "Ice Box" tour was really good. I recall the below zero temps and high walls of snow surrounding the perimeter of the Dane County coliseum and the snow-packed highways getting in and out of Madison. I was a day late starting my new job in Lutcher, Louisiana, furthur south down the river.
BTW, Johnny Cash would've been 80 yesterday!
