Grateful Dead

November 19 - November 25, 2012

Tapers Section By David LemieuxWeek of November 19 - November 25, 2012

Welcome back. Like last week, this week we have a double dose of 1979, plus some 1989 Grateful Dead here at the Tapers' Section.

First up is the end of the show from 11/29/79 in Cleveland, where we have Black Peter>Around and Around>Good Lovin'; US Blues. It was quite common in 1979 to come out of Space with the Jerry ballad, a bit of a change from the usual rocker coming out of space.

Next up is the pre-Drums sequence from 12/7/79 in Indianapolis, where we have China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider, Eyes Of The World, Lost Sailor>Saint Of Circumstance. This is a bit of a unique sequence in that Eyes follows China>Rider, which is usually followed by a Bobby tune.

Next up is the first part of the second set from 12/10/89 at the LA Forum, featuring Jack Straw>China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider, Man Smart (Woman Smarter). We hope you don't mind two China>Riders this week.

Be sure to stop by next week for more tunes form deep within the vault.

It's impossible for me to understand why and how people are so hung up on one era of the Grateful Dead.

WE get it!!! You don't really care for anything post Keith wit an exception here or there. It's cool. It really is. So let others like what they do without your, to quote Blair Jackson, "Deader than thou!" attitude. There are certain eras of the band I don't like but I never call anyone out for liking it. Like you said, to each their own....

1979

Noticed we have been getting a lot of 79 shows here lately. Not complaining though. I love the 79 sound. Brent just getting his feet wet. Brand new tunes. Lots of good stuff here. And some of my favorite Black Peters of all time. Keep up the good work David.

*** Noteworthy: Bruce Hornsby on all of Jack Straw->China->Rider->Women...
The first three on accordion and "Women are" on piano sitting shoulder-to-shoulder with Brent as future successor to that role only 7 months before Brent's passing. A remarkable visual I have always valued to say nothing of how top notch this performance was. A top five show in over a few hundred. Primal!

In the parking lot early?

Man, no intelligent life there! I suppose, GD Prof, you would have hit the parking lot early after the Cap Center show because you anticipated a draggy Don't Ease for the encore instead of the Ripple they ultimately played for the last time. I never hit the parking lot early for any show I went to.

To each his/her own, I guess...

as good as it gets.....

mundane, tired post drums '79 sequence, that had many of us in the parking lot early, run of the mill pre drums sequence from the same year (where there were some good shows for sure), then '89. Good as it gets, well to each their own.

Love Fall '79!

There's a bonus surprise of a hot Johnny B Goode after Around and Around! No Good Lovin', though.
