Week of May 20-26, 2019

Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have Grateful Dead music from 1970, 1973, and 1980.

Our first stop this week is in Austin, TX, on 2/23/70 where we have some acoustic Dead, followed by some electric music, less than two weeks after the magnificent Fillmore East shows of 2/11-14/70, featuring Me And My Uncle, Black Peter, Seasons Of My Heart> Uncle John's Band, Not Fade Away> Mason's Children.

Next is a classic 1973 sequence from 2/19/73 in Chicago, where we have He's Gone > Truckin' > The Other One. These three songs together always work very well, and this performance certainly doesn’t disappoint.

Lastly this week is the start of the third set from 10/18/80 in New Orleans, when the Dead were making a brief stop on their way to New York City for the run of shows at Radio City Music Hall. From this fine show, we have China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider ; Feel Like A Stranger ; Ship Of Fools ; Estimated Prophet > Eyes Of The World. There’s a cassette tape flip between Estimated and Eyes.

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

2 of the most memorable shows I've seen, and in such a beautiful theatre. Each show began with an acoustic set, followed by 2 electric sets. I think Dan Healy was on the board running a cassette recorder . The Saenger has 2600 seats so everyone was close and loving the intimacy of the band's performance. Maybe Dave can treat us to some of the acoustic tunes next?
