Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have music from 1969 before jumping ahead to the 1980s with music from 1984 and 1988.
Our first selection is this very cool show from 6/28/69 in Santa Rosa, CA, featuring Slewfoot; Silver Threads And Golden Needles ; Mama Tried; Me And My Uncle ; Doin' That Rag> High Time ; King Bee ; Sittin On Top Of The World,Turn On Your Love Light .
Next is the start of the second set from 6/29/84 at Cuyahuga Falls, OH, featuring Scarlet Begonias > Touch Of Grey ; Dear Mr. Fantasy > Man Smart (Woman Smarter). A couple of cool things to note are the first attempt of Scarlet>Touch (which would later be joined to Fire a couple of times in July 1984), and Dear Mr. Fantasy, which had debuted two weeks earlier at Red Rocks on 6/14/84.
