Tapers Section By David Lemieux

Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we'll hear music from 1977, 1978 and 1989.

The New Year's Eve show on 12/31/77 is often overshadowed by 12/29/77 (understandably so; that show rocks!), but there was plenty of good music on 12/31, including this big jam of Truckin'>Jam>Wharf Rat>Drums>Not Fade Away>Around and Around; One More Saturday Night>Casey Jones. There's a cut in Not Fade Away, but it's not too bad.

We've played you some 4/22/78 music from Nashville, and this week we have the start of the second set, featuring Lazy Lightning>Supplication, It Must Have Been The Roses, Estimated Prophet>Eyes Of The World. That's a bit of a rare second set Lazy Lightning>Supplication, but a good one nonetheless.

Back to more New Year's run music, with tunes from 12/28/89 in Oakland. This time we have the entire first set, featuring two of the bigger Bob jam vehicles, Stranger and Let It Grow, both excellent versions: Let The Good Times Roll, Feel Like A Stranger, Dire Wolf, Little Red Rooster, Ramble On Rose, Queen Jane Approximately, Just A Little Light, Let It Grow.

Thanks for joining us, and be sure to come back next week.

thanks much for the very helpful list. Our tech folks assure me that while fixing this will take some time as it's a biggish job, they are on the case. Thanks again.

Oakland New Years run

Thanks for this one Dave. My first and only New Years run. Too much of life on and off the bus all caught up in a family road trip to Berkley (we stayed in the Golden Bear motel as I recall) Oakland for the decade changer.
If you have a good version of the pre New Years night would love to hear it. Seems like Airto or someone joined Mickey and Billy and they plugged into the universal choir during drums space. Could have been me cause sometimes the songs that we ...well you know. Love and peace through the music.
The actual New Years show highlight for me was the Bonnie Raitt, Big Boss Man when the boys all go Pips rythmn section with synchronized flashes off guitar faces pushing Bonnie forward and them funking down in the background (video probably needed to appreciate). Boninie then exuberantly jumps on Jerry leaving the stage and Jerry gives one of those aw shucks embarrassed shy WTF is happening to me helpless looks before stepping back into the eye of the hurricane. Good stuff it not great music. But you could tell cause the tapes never lie.

the particulars

Nearly all the entries from 2008, 2009, and 2010 are gone. Poof!, missing, vanished...view this page and notice the large gaps in the chronology week to week. There's quite a lot missing. Thanks for fixing this week, and the last few weeks...one can hope it's the start of something good...

with this whole new format

Are the selections from tapers really there? DL got yelled at sometime ago because they were downloadable. Those are are probably gone (or at least download-blocked - if that is possible,

It seems to me that Rhino has gone to a much more commercial model with less for the heads (freebies). Talking about less and less and remembering the money we bring.... If you want to talk go to Facebook and sell your soul to that corp..

I take your point: there are huge gaps in the Taper's Section archive which I didn't realize were there on a quick first look. If the missing offerings are on the server and can be accessed by typing the url into your address bar it should be easily repairable. But I tried clicking on January 18, 2010 - January 24, 2010 (archive page 4) and got that offering, but the url in the address bar is
http://www.dead.net/features/tapers-section/march-8-march-14-2010. I won't bother to check any more--the files on the server must be corrupted. I hope they have adequate backup and can fix their problems. Thanks for noticing.

So we shouldn't trouble ourselves with the missing links from 2008, 2009, and 2010? There's a bunch of good stuff there and HUGE chunks are missing. I, for one, would love to see everything restored back to how it used to be. Of course, they're not missing from the server (thankfully or YET) but they are not 'browseable' (i.e. they cannot be viewed or recalled directly from the menu or listings on dead.net).

links missing

It could be that today's post was supposed to be two pages and only one was successfully loaded. I can't even guess why the earlier January postings have disappeared from http://www.dead.net/features/tapers-section. When I call those pages up the links are all working. Ditto for all posts I sampled at random back to http://www.dead.net/features/tapers-section/april-2-april-8-2007.

I think the problem is just today's missing portion and the prior 3 weeks postings on http://www.dead.net/features/tapers-section even though
