Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have music from 1986, 1988 and 1993, all from East Coast Spring Tours.
Our first selection is the entire first set of 4/1/86 in Providence, RI, where the Dead played a good set of Shakedown Street ; Estimated Prophet ; Eyes Of The World ; Drums ; Space ; I Need A Miracle ; Black Peter ; Sugar Magnolia.
Next, from Easter Sunder on 4/3/88 in Hartford, CT, we have the entire first set made up of Promised Land > Greatest Story Ever Told ; Althea ; Little Red Rooster ; Cold Rain & Snow ; Stuck Inside of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again ; Box Of Rain; Don't Ease Me In. This was the show at which Jerry lost his voice in the second set and threw his microphone to the ground during Black Peter.
Lastly this week is the big second set pre-Drums sequence from 3/28/93 in Albany, featuring six songs and some mighty jamming, particularly during Scarlet>Fire and the jam out of Truckin'. From this excellent show, we have Scarlet Begonias > Fire On The Mountain ; Samson And Delilah ; Ship Of Fools ; Wave To The Wind > Truckin'.
