Just like your favorite jam, things are going to get a bit funky on Dead.net over the next week or so. Community accounts will be temporarily closed October 16th-17th and may be under further maintenance through October 22nd. But rest assured, we will be back up and better than ever shortly thereafter. Stay tuned!
July 13 - July 19, 2015
Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have music from the first five years of Brent time with the band, 1979-1984.
Our first selection this week is from 5/4/79 in Hampton, VA, the Grateful Dead's first stop at the Hampton Coliseum, and Brent's third show. This was included on the vinyl-only release for independent record stores a couple of years ago. From the end of the show (which featured no encore), we have Space > Truckin' Space>Truckin'> Stella Blue > Around And Around.
Next up, from two years later at the same venue on 5/1/81, we have the start of the second set, featuring three of the newish songs that appeared on Go To Heaven a year earlier, Feel Like A Stranger> Franklin's Tower> Lost Sailor > Saint Of Circumstance.
Lastly this week is music from 4/27/84 in Providence, RI, where we have the end of the second set featuring The Wheel > Wharf Rat > Around And Around > Johnny B. Goode, Touch Of Grey.
Be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault.
so first one is NFA beat and atari. The 84 Wharf Rat seems to have a little Cosmic Charlie tease!? Suweet
Killer combo perfect for a 9 o clock bacon n eggs
The whole Spring tour 84 was a gem many great shows . I think is overlooked by many.
Nevermind. Found it
This is a standout - vocally haunting and playingwise. The bridge especially...
