March 14 - March 20, 2016
Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we’ll check out some Grateful Dead music from 1976, 1980 and 1981, a great five year span of Dead.
First up this week is the bulk of the first set from 10/1/76 in Indianapolis, where we have a classic (and excellent) batch of 1976 Grateful Deal ; Cassidy; Friend Of The Devil , Big River, Brown Eyed Women , It's All Over Now, Scarlet Begonias,The Promised Land
Next is the start of the third set from 10/2/80 at the Warfield in San Francisco, where we have this cool, and slightly different, set-opening sequence of Drums > Comes A Time > Lost Sailor > Saint Of Circumstance > Terrapin Station > Playing In The Band
Lastly this week is the end of the show from 9/27/81 at the Capital Center in Landover, MD, where we have Spanish Jam > Wharf Rat > I Need A Miracle > Good Lovin'; Baby Blue. The band left the next day for Scotland, where they’d open a three week tour of Europe.
Be sure to stop by next week for more music from the vault.
Sure was great to see the band together again after the long layoff. I enjoy listening to Jerry Moore's recording: incredible how good his audience recording is! The Bertha opener is interesting with it's slower beat: why isn't it included here?
will listen as soon as possible
Later that same day:
That is one of the shortest Playin' jams I have ever heard.
Drums > Comes a Time > LS is worth a listen or two
