Tapers Section By David Lemieux

Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have music from 1972, 1973 and 1991.

Our first stop this week is at the Academy of Music on 3/22/72, the second of seven nights before they left for Europe. From that fine show we have Me And My Uncle ; Sugaree ; Chinatown Shuffle ; Playing In The Band ; It Hurts Me Too ; Brown Eyed Women ; El Paso ; Brokedown Palace.

Next is music from 3/16/73 at Nassau Coliseum, with a rare first set opening China>Rider. For that show we have the bulk of Set 1: China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider ; Jack Straw ; Wave That Flag; Looks Like Rain ; Ramble On Rose ; Box Of Rain; Beat It On Down The Line ; They Love Each Other ; El Paso ; Row Jimmy.

Lastly this week is the start of Set 2 on 3/25/91 in Albany, shows featuring only Vince on keyboards, as Bruce had previous commitments and missed the Albany and Nassau shows on this tour. From this show we have Greatest Story Ever Told ; Crazy Fingers ; Truckin' > Spoonful > Jam > Drums.

Join us next week for more great stuff from the vault.

Playing In The Band, really 3/22?

I don't know that the Rockin' the Rhein bonus disc was labeled as such, but the PITB on that CD was thought to be from 3/22, right? It is definitely different than what is posted here though. They played PITB at varying lengths almost each night of that March '72 engagement - compact, intense interludes. On the bonus disc, Weir's voice is scratchy, and he sounds fatigued, finale-like. Not here.

Why so many of the same negative comments?

If you do not like a certain time period or certain band members. Keep it to your self PLEASE. Others had a great time at that show. And if you think you are the best critic the bands would have ended decades ago. They care not what you think and neither do we.
So turn up the music enjoy. If you cannot go away. Stay away from humans, and animals. Lighten up, are you really all that and a bag of chips?
This is Insane Really who do you think you are opinions are like you know.
The same ridiculous comments by a few. Can't you be happy enjoy without making the same comments.
If you could do better than why have you not done so. So many like to criticize you really need to get a life.
This is brought to you as a gift to keep the thing going.
