Tapers Section By David Lemieux

Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have music from 1973, 1984 and 1994.

Our first selection is music from El Paso, Texas, on 11/23/73 as part of the terrific Fall Tour of 1973, one of the creative highpoints of the Grateful Dead's performing caree. From this show, we have the big second set jam featuring He's Gone>Truckin'>Jam>The Other One>Space>Me and Bobby McGee.

Next is the entire first set from the second night of a six night stand at the Berkeley Community Theatre in Berkeley, CA on 10/28/84, featuring Cold Rain And Snow; My Brother Esau ; Althea ; C C Rider ; Bird Song ; Looks Like Rain > Deal. There are some master-tape dropouts on the first song, but otherwise this sounds pretty good. This run of shows is famous for it being the first official tapers' section.

Lastly this week is music from 10/19/94 at Madison Square Garden, the last-ever Grateful Dead concert at MSG in New York. From this show, we have Samson and Delilah, So Many Road, Saint Of Circumstance, Terrapin Station>Jam.

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

dropouts

There are a few releases where they patch missing bits of music with audience sources. Between audience patches and matrix mixes, theoretically, almost every tape in the vault should be potentially releasable.

nice chord

That chord at the end of Bird Song (I'm too lazy to check for the interval, it's probably something simple), played by Phil just made me say "Nice". The sound is good. I guess you can hear a little of the snare in the '84 clip, moreso than the '83 Worcester tape from last week. The dropouts probably could be fixed, no?

Dave's Pick 1994 or 1984

Would be very Welcome! Have not seen a release for 1994 or 1984. (am i correct about 1984?) But these 1994 tapes have been extremely enjoyable. I for one am a fan of Vince. I loved it when Bruce was with them but I feel Vince got overshadowed by that for the rest of his tenure. Great tapes thanks for posting

1994

I love the fact that Dave seems to be listening to a lot of 1994. Hoping we get blessed with a nice 1994 Dave's Picks release
