Tapers Section By David Lemieux

Ahoy hoy! Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have music spanning three decades (and three keyboard players).

Our first stop this week is 6/30/74 in Springfield, MA, where we have the Playing in the Band>Uncle John's Band>Playing in the Band jam, an early version of the sequence that would become quite common in the late 1980s.

Next up, from 3/10/81 at MSG in New York, we have from the first set Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo > Franklin's Tower > Me And My Uncle ; It Must Have Been The Roses > Little Red Rooster; Don't Ease Me In. Please be warned that there are some major feedback squeals during Half-Step, but otherwise this is from a great-sounding cassette master. As good as this show is, the night before at MSG is perhaps a wee bit better.

Finally this week, a quartet of songs from 3/11/93 in Rosemont, IL:Althea, Masterpiece, So Many Roads>Music Never Stopped. We don't play too much 1993 here at the Tapers' Section, so it's fun when we find some good tunes, of which there were plenty on the Spring Tour of '93, and get to play them for you here.

Be sure to stop by next week where we'll have more great stuff from the vault. And feel free to write to the address below with questions or comments about the Tapers' Section.

3/10/81 is one the all time greats. 3/9/81 a wee bit better? i think not. Sacrilege (however you spell it.) The S>F from 3/10 is one of the most frequent played ones in my head. The LS>SOC.........
