Week of May 6-12, 2019

Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have Grateful Dead music from three very fine years in their performing history, 1972, 1978, and 1989.

Our first stop this week is on 11/22/72 in Austin, TX, toward the end of the Dead’s phenomenal touring year of 1972, where we have this great batch of first set music: Sugaree ; Mexicali Blues ; Loser ; Black Throated Wind ; China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider; Beat It On Down The Line ; Candyman; El Paso; Bird Song ; Playing In The Band.

Next up is 2/1/78 in Chicago, the final night of a three night run at the Uptown Theatre, where we have first set music featuring Jack Straw, Friend Of The Devil, Mama Tried>Me and My Uncle, Ramble On Rose, Cassidy, Sugaree.

Lastly this week is the entire first set from 2/6/89 at the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center in Oakland, CA, with an unusual set opener and an unusual set closer: Not Fade Away ; Sugaree > Wang Dang Doodle ; Jack-A-Roe ; Queen Jane Approximately ; Brown Eyed Women ; Cassidy ; Tennessee Jed.

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

February was cold in the upper midwest, but the band was hot! Great Jack Straw from 2/1. Cool uptempo drum intro with Ramble On Rose. Jerry is ON during Sugaree
