January 26 - February 1, 2015
Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have music covering 20 years of Grateful Dead history, from 1969 to 1989, with a stop in the middle in 1981.
Our first selection is the huge second set sequence from 11/7/69 at the Fillmore Auditorium, featuring three of the biggest jamming songs of the era: Dark Star>That's It For The Other One>Lovelight. This was the night before the majestic show that would become Dick's Picks Vol. 16.
Next up, from 12 years later, is music from the start of the second set on 5/11/81 in New Haven, CT, featuring Scarlet Begonias> Fire On The Mountain> C C Rider ; To Lay Me Down.
From the Philadelphia Spectrum on 10/20/89, we have the end of the show, featuring Space > I Will Take You Home> The Other One > Wharf Rat ; Sugar Magnolia, Brokedown Palace. This was part of the era when the Grateful Dead were recording to 24-track analog tape for the Without A Net album project, and many archival releases since then.
Be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault.
To me was an amazing night set list the playing itself not just the Playing in the Band but the way the boys played. Rip roaring couch jumping fun
The Other One 16-18 minute mark is prime, leads up to Cowboy Neal. That sh*t is just electrifying...still.
Sounds a little slow to me. Dave if you pitch-correct these early eighties show's they would sound a lot better.
Yeh, I've played it on my electric guitar n' tonite, sounded good!
Next night also features this jam.
Lovelight is the same as DP16
on the Fillmore tape at around 18:35. Sweet little nugget!
.....Fillmore bite! I was at the New Haven show, but have no memory of it at all.....must have been a good time!
i was @ the 5/81 new haven,ct show ...great tour
