January 04 - January 10, 2016
Welcome back to the Tapers' Section and our first full week of 2016 music offerings from the Grateful Dead's vault.
Our first stop this week is on 8/12/81 in Salt Lake City, where we have the music coming out of Space, although we're missing the final two songs of the set (Around and Around>Good Lovin'). From this fine show, we have Space>Spanish Jam>Truckin'>Morning Dew.
Next is the start of the second set from my first Grateful Dead show on 3/26/87 in Hartford. Even though I was virtually last row of the building, I remember everything about this show so vividly. Enjoy this batch of very high energy Dead: China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider, Looks Like Rain>He's Gone.
Lastly this week is the entire first set from 7/31/88 at Laguna Seca in Monterey, CA, where we have Mississippi Half-Step, Little Red Rooster, West LA Fadeaway, Me and My Uncle>Big River, Ramble On Rose, Gentlemen Start Your Engines, Masterpiece, Bird Song.
Be sure to join us here next week with more music from the vault.
Jerry thanks David Hidalgo after the songs.
I am guessing they were David Hidalgo and/or Cesar Rosas from Los Lobos, and listening more I am becoming quite certain.
Listen to Little Red Rooster and maybe West La Fadeaway and you will hear some electric guitars not played by Jerry or Bob... Better list 'em...
will try to bethere in Salt Lake City :)
Or maybe somewhere in San Francisco, on a back porch in July.
I'm on a back porch in San Francisco in January. 65 Degrees(F)
That would have to include 9/12/81, mbarilla
Out of about 500 versions, only a very few times this occured
When is one these smoking sets from August getting released? Quite a few are circulating from Audience recordings.
2nd set of 8.14.81 is pretty interesting opening with 6 songs before drums including Playing in the Band. Also Baby Blue encore, seems to be 1st in a while. Bring on more 1981, how about 9.12.81 if in vault ??
Excellent way to start the year, thanks Dave!
Loved this show! The whole thing was great. So much good energy from the '87 ones. Especially like that dramatic burst at the end of He's Gone... Thanks, Dave!
someone seems to say (non-verbally) "kick up the energy a little".
the audience sounds happy about it.
oh to live on, grateful mountain, with the deadheads and the colored balloons.
i can't be twenty on grateful mountain. That was 32 years ago, 4fuxsayk.
