July 2 - July 8, 2012
Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where we have music this week from 1972, 1979 and 1985.
Our first stop this week is on 11/14/72 in Oklahoma City, where we have a quartet of songs: Sugar Magnolia, Casey Jones, Uncle John's Band, One More Saturday Night. There is a reel change/tape cut during Sugar Mag, but otherwise this Fall 72 music sounds as good as expected.
Next up is a nice batch of tunes from 11/29/79 in Cleveland, where we have High Time, Estimated Prophet>Eyes Of The World. This tour was recorded to cassette from the PA mix, and there are varying sound issues on recordings from throughout the tour, but they mostly sound pretty good.
Next up is the entire first set from 9/3/85 in Kansas City, featuring Feel Like A Stranger>They Live Each Other, Little Red Rooster, Dire Wolf, Cassidy, Big Railroad Blues, The Music Never Stopped>Don't Ease Me In.
Be sure to stop by next week for more tunes from the vault.
David L says Bonner Springs, July 4, 1990 was hot: it was! However, August 3, 1982 was over a 100 degrees at Starlight. September 3, 1985 was another cooker: this show was perhaps the best show in Kansas city. That's my story and I'm stickin' 2 it.
I don't recall how hot it was on July 3, 1984. The 1991 shows were not as hot, weather-wise, although my keg of Boulevard was tough to keep cool in the van.
These selections are simply delectable! Thanky indeed, Mr. Lemieux, for your generous offerings this fine week of our nation's birthday. Awful fine gesture from you, a Canadian ;)
I'm thoroughly enjoying this week's romp through Grateful Dead's history. No repeats, either! Not that that's a bad thing, btw.
That Estimated from Cleveland was smoking hot. Thanks, I've been really looking forward to these every week lately. Good stuff!
I love this show. 2nd set opens with the final "Cryptical"...
