Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have music spanning 20 years of Grateful Dead touring.
Our first selection this week is a decent chunk of the first set of 3/22/72 at the Academy of Music in New York, consisting of Me And My Uncle ; Sugaree ; Chinatown Shuffle ; Playing In The Band ; It Hurts Me Too ; Brown Eyed Women ; El Paso ; Brokedown Palace. We never grow tired of this early-1972 Dead, and hope you don't mind how much of it we've played the last few weeks.
Next up is music from 3/25/91 at the Knickerbocker Arena in Albany, NY, featuring the start of the second set: Greatest Story Ever Told ; Crazy Fingers ; Truckin' > Spoonful > Jam > Drums. Walking in to the arena for this run of shows, we were all a little surprised to see that Bruce's piano was not onstage. He'd played the previous four shows at the Cap Center, and would resume his spot on the tour after the Nassau shows following Albany.
Finally this week, some 1992 Dead, from 3/21/92 at Copps Coliseum in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, where we have the whole first set made up of Help On The Way > Slipknot! > Franklin's Tower ; Little Red Rooster ; Peggy-O ; Queen Jane Approximately ; So Many Roads. I was sitting second row at this concert, right in front of Jerry, and I distinctly recall after So Many Roads seeing Jerry and Bob have a little discussion about what to play next, and unable to agree (or think of something…), they decided to end the set there, a rare first-set closer.
Be sure to come back next week and check out some Dead from the vault. And feel free to email us at the address below with any questions or comments about the Tapers' Section.
Excellent as usual Monsieur Lemieux!
Could you dig around for some '82? Moscone Center in SF features an awesome Althea, Tennesse Jed and Truckin'!
the songs we sing are just songs of own
Love the music from all years all seasons. Play on my friends! Been to many shows, don't ask me when, don't ask me where, and for sure don't ask me what they played cuz it's all a whirrrly blur. I will forever leave the facts up to you folks. I just want to say that I before E is a huge lie. Whoever came up with that was further out there than E am.
Much love, luck and light to all you, my brothers and sisters...CosmicDan

As always, nice tunes!

I think I'll turn the badge over to you. Although, I cannot guarantee I won't pipe up over blatant offenses.
Cool jam. It reminds me of the jam after Terrapin in the View from the vault #3 show; it also reminds me of Mississippi half step. Weird is one of the few exceptions to the grammatical rule i before e except after c, as are seize, either, neither, and leisure. No charge.
