November 29 - December 5, 2010
Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we'll roll into December with music from 1970 and 1987.
Our first stop is on 2/28/70 at the Family Dog in San Francisco, where we have the big, unique set-closing jam made up of Alligator>Drums>Other One>Mason's Children>Lovelight Reprise. That Lovelight Reprise was the closing of the song that had opened the show earlier.
Next up is more music from the Family Dog, this time the very next night, on 3/1/70, featuring a trio of tunes: Uncle John's band, Dancing In The Street>Baby Blue. This is one of the mellowest UJB's I can think of. Please note there is a master reel change on the Baby Blue, so our apologies for the brief cut.
Finally this week is the entire first set from 7/8/87 in Roanoke, VA: Hell In A Bucket > Sugaree; It's All Over Now ; Dupree's Diamond Blues ; Never Trust A Woman ; When I Paint My Masterpiece ; Big Railroad Blues ; Let It Grow. This show took place the day after the release of In The Dark, and features some high-energy playing, and rare (for 1987) versions of Dupree's and Big Railroad Blues. It's a nice, bluesy version of Brent's Never Trust A Woman, too.
Be sure to join us next week as we'll have more great Grateful Dead music for you to enjoy. As always, you're encouraged to write to us with questions or comments to email address belo
really enjoying Phil's support on that TOO!! hearing some shifting roots that I hadn't before... he is listening and responding to Jerry VERY well!
Family Dog, nights of intense, primal, exploratory music for the mind, body, heart and soul. Music never before heard, and never to be heard again......
And then..... Hell In a Bucket!
This is the slowest UJB I've ever heard and it fits my back to work mood perfectly!
Just the thing on this cold Monday morning, to bring my fingers and toes back to work after the Thanksgiving holiday. Some great Dancin' jams through the year of 1970. Thanks, David.
