Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have a double dose of 1973, and some 1987 Grateful Dead music.
Our first selection this week is from 3/26/73 in Baltimore, MD, where we have the big second set jam of Truckin'>Jam>Wharf Rat>Me and Bobby McGee>Eyes Of The World>Morning Dew.
Next up is one of the best shows from one of the best tours in Grateful Dead history, the 10/25/73 concert in Madison, WI, featuring a great batch of prime second set Dead from 1973: China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider, Me and My Uncle, Dark Star>Mind Left Body Jam>Eyes Of The World>Stella Blue. This was the Dead's second visit to Madison in 1973, with the first show from February 15 also featuring a big Dark Star.
Lastly this week is the opening sequence from Mickey's birthday show on 9/11/87 at the Capital Center in Landover, MD, where we have Bertha >The Promised Land, Candyman,New Minglewood Blues, When Push Comes To Shove. This was the first night of a three night preceded the Dead's return to Madison Square Garden on 9/15/87 after a four year absence.
