November 30 - December 06, 2015
Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have some fine Grateful Dead music from 1974, 1982 and 1984.
Our first stop is on 7/27/74 during the Dead's final American tour with the Wall Of sound. After this tour ended on 8/6/74 in NJ, they would play a European tour followed by five nights at Winterland, and then would pack it in. From Roanoke, we have U.S. Blues > The Promised Land ; Brokedown Palace ; Not Fade Away > Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad > Johnny B. Goode.
From eight years later on 7/28/82 at Red Rocks, we have this unique second set sequence of Althea ; Let It Grow > He's Gone> Truckin'.
Lastly this week is this terrific sequence of music from the final night of a tour night at Ventura County Fairgrounds on 7/22/84, featuring Morning Dew > Throwing Stones > Not Fade Away, In The Midnight Hour > Brokedown Palace.
I hope everyone had some good time off over the holiday. See you here next week with more great music from the Grateful Dead's archive.
I recall him standing there doing the NFA riff like the rock of Gibraltar
you'll know it when you hear it.
Love the ascending Weir riff during the creschendo of the jam at the end - Epic!
Also bring on more sequence with
Morning Dew ->
Throwing Stones ->
Not Fade Away
A few others from 1983/1984
Cool show. Folks want to hear a St. Stephen tease in the 2nd half of set II, but I don't buy it. It sounds like a NFA Jam to me.
