Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have music from 1969, 1982 and 1984.
Our first stop this week is on 4/20/69 in Worcester, MA, where we have this trio of early Dead songs: Morning Dew, Good Morning Little Schoolgirl, Doin' That Rag.
Next is the start of the second set from the Grateful Dead’s fourth and final visit to Glens Falls, NY, on 4/14/82, where we have the start of the second set: China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider, Playing In The Band.
From another Falls, this time Niagara Falls on 4/17/84, we have the start of the show, featuring Jack Straw, Dire Wolf, New Minglewood Blues, Row Jimmy.
Be sure to stop by next week for more music from the vault.
I haven't listened to much GD recently; I have been on a Motorhead kick.
Hearing this China Rider right now, it is now spring and summer; I am AT the show; I am with the music.
Grateful Dead magic.
Hey now! This show rocked! Jerry's voice was rough in the beginning but got better as the show progressed. The hand really clicked. I was lucky enough to be there! Great spring tour!Listen and you will agree it started great and only got better.
Very cool Playin'
Sometimes I think they got into a rut with this song in the 80's and followed a familiar pattern of jamming. This one stands out. Some of my other favorite 80's versions are 9/19/87 and 3/19/86.
This is a very cool Playin' in the Band. Thank you, Deadbase, for guiding me to this one.
