Tapers Section By David Lemieux

Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have music from 1972, 1987 and 1991.

Our first selection this week is from 10/2/72 in Springfield, MA, the show that wrapped up the first leg of the fall tour of 1972, featuring Jack Straw, Don't Ease Me In, Playing In The Band, Casey Jones. There's a reel flip in Playing In The Band, but otherwise this sounds great.

Next up is the start of the second set from 6/14/87 in Ventura, CA, the last Grateful Dead show at Ventura County Fairgrounds, featuring Scarlet Begonias > Fire On The Mountain ; Playing In The Band > Terrapin Station.

Lastly this week is the end of the show from the Dead's first-ever appearance at Soldier Field in Chicago, on 6/22/91, featuring Space>Dark Star>Playing In The Band reprise>Black Peter>One More Saturday, The Weight. This was an appropriate encore of The Weight, the same encore played in Chicago a year earlier at Brent Mydland's final show.

Be sure to join us here next week for more tunes from the vault.

07.23.90 Brent's last show. Tinley Park is a long long way from Chicago. Also the 10th anniversary of Keith's Death. "The Weight" Thanks Jaime Robert Robertson.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this performance is so good, that I have no problem calling it superior to most performances that occurred at any time prior to it from the preceding 22 years. Absolutely amazing. Jerry's in perfect voice and his guitar work is phenomenal here.

Please Dave, release this run!!!!

A line of gibberish in the middle is to blame

For the '87 selection

Hey, it's in there...

I copy-pasted the link from ("http://dead.. all the way to Casey Jones into a text editor and then made it match a previous Tapers selection in format. This is what came out and it works:

http://dead.net/sites/all/themes/dead2013/jplayer/?url=http://rhino.edgeboss.net/download/rhino/gdtapersflv/jun302014/72.mp3&title=Tapers&text=Jack-Straw,-Dont-Ease-Me-In,-Playing-In-The-Band,-Casey-Jones

It appears that there cannot be any spaces between song names or within their names, so hyphens have to be inserted where they are missing. I guess the same should be possible for the other selections, but since I love '72 Dead, that's where I started.
