Tapers Section By David Lemieux

Our first selection this week is from the third night of a four night run at BCT in Berkeley, CA on 8/24/72, just before the Dead went north for the Veneta show. From the BCT, we have Promised Land ; Sugaree; Jack Straw; China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider; Me And My Uncle ; Bird Song.

Next is the start of the show from the middle night of the New Year’s run on 12/28/80 in Oakland, featuring Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo > Franklin's Tower ; Me And My Uncle > Big River ; Bird Song.

Lastly this week we have the end of the show on 6/28/88 at SPAC in Saratoga Springs, NY, the last bit of music the Grateful Dead would ever play at SPAC: I Will Take You Home> Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad > I Need A Miracle> Stella Blue > Not Fade Away, Knockin' On Heaven's Door.

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault.

Throw in San Jose and there's a box of unsurpassed beauty!!! Then you can lick your wounds and repair to Veneta. I love this stuff, compay!
