Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have Grateful Dead music spanning 20 years, from 1973 to 1993, all of which comes from the state of New York.

Our first select this week is second set jam sequence from 3/30/73 in Rochester, NY, which features Truckin' > Jam > Space > Eyes Of The World > Not Fade Away > Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad > One More Saturday Night.

Next up, from 12 years later on 3/29/85 at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY, we have the entire first set featuring Cold Rain And Snow ; Down In The Bottom > I Ain't Superstitious ; Friend Of The Devil ; Supplication > My Brother Esau ; Tennessee Jed ; New Minglewood Blues > Don't Ease Me In. These Nassau shows featured loads of great playing, and a special appearance by Matt Kelly on harmonica during the second and third songs.

Lastly this week is the start of the second set from 3/27/93 at the Knickerbocker Arena in Albany, NY, the fourth straight year in a row they played at the Knick. They skipped 1994, but returned for two shows in 1995. From this show, we have Eyes Of The World > Estimated Prophet ; Comes A Time ; Corrina.

It looks like only AUD are in circulation for 3.29.85. Just listened to most of Dicks Picks 21 a few days ago (missing disc 2) Great stuff. 1985 has a lot of interesting cover songs. Last night, I listened to 9.28.75 with Matt Kelly appearing on a track as well. Just acquired a chunky bit from 11.21.85 with a funky Shakedown > Crazy Fingers and Playin > She Belongs To Me

Back in the days when I burned up my cassette deck, 3-27-93 was a favorite of mine to spin. Going to find out now how it has held up over time. Thanks Dead.net.

Is this the show where Mickey threw drumsticks at Matt Kelly? There's a video out there somewhere, Bobby actually had to stand between them to save poor Matt from a pelting.

Dude sued Billy for more than $100K for damaging his balls and he was screwing around with hookers at the same time. The suit not surprisingly got thrown out of court.

While not filled with epic jams and classic shows, 1985 was a very fun year. Mixed setlists, as mentioned, great covers and Jerry in red. The playing was loose. Listening to shows now, some are hard to get through, but there is always a nugget or two to remind of a great year on the road. The stick throwing incident is a classic. The first one might have been a slip, but the second one sealed the intent. Mickey was never exactly warm and cuddly with any of the people I knew who had contact with him.
