Tapers Section By David Lemieux

We’re going to be doing some jumping around the calendar this week, to play you some music we didn’t get a chance to play for you the past few weeks.

First, as we’re always interested in playing unique sequences and segues, we’ll pop into 1980 for a quick stop on 10/2/80 at the Warfield in San Francisco. From this very good show is the interesting third set opening sequence of Drums>Comes A Time>Lost Sailor>Saint of Circumstance.

Next up, we’ll jump ahead 14 years, to 1994, specifically the very good Fall Tour. From 10/1/94 in Boston, we have the second set opener, Scarlet Begonias>Fire On The Mountain, and from a few nights later on 10/5/94 in Philadelphia, the very unique second set opening combination of Midnight Hour-Cumberland Blues.

From the Fall Tour of 1976, specifically 9/30/76 in Columbus, OH, we have the second set opening Lazy Lightning>Supplication.

Jumping back a bit to 1972, here are two songs from the 4/7/72 show at Wembley Empire Pool (subsequently Wembley Arena) in London, Chinatown Shuffle and a rocking Me and My Uncle. Bobby wasn’t kidding when he said about these two Wembley shows in 1972, “man, we played like demons at those shows.”

Check in next week when we’ll be playing some great music from your favourite band. As always, we welcome and encourage your questions and comments.

what's this doing here?

I mean in the Forums? (under Administration: Technical Problems) I guess it might serve as a nice sidetrack to go off on. However, Taper's Section is its real home...

Good news for frustrated streamers

Check out the recent post from the ‘The Professor’ on ‘Introducing Ourselves’ . He includes the following statement

‘You can also listen to my radio choices at: where I publish the Deadpod weekly'

check it out, it looks really good!

Advice needed

Dear Serious Minded Tapers Section Correspondents. I have just received this email about a hard to refuse offer. Do you think I should take it up?

Dear mr Badger Cosmic Sir!
I am Theophilus P Wildebeest and I am pleased to get across to you for a very urgent and profitable business proposal, this may come to you as a Surprise as we have not met before. But I can trust a Person of your caliber.
The intended business is thus, I am the associate executive assistant director consultant of RICHER DONORS Company as such, of which I have information has received substantial deposit in most secure and infamous heavy RHINO vault of riches equivalent in your currency of 10,000 Silver Discs. After these several unsuccessful attempts to locate the true inheritor I decided to seek over the Internet, to locate any entitled person or persons but of no avail, hence I contacted you. I have to be sincere and honest with you, I contacted you to assist me in reclaiming the Silver Discs and property left behind before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by Rhino Vault where these huge amount is lodged.
Consequently, Rhino Vault issued me a notice to provide entitled person or have the Disc destroyed within the next 21 official working days. Since I have in my honest endeavour been unsuccessful in locating the entitled person I seek your consent to present you as rightful owner, so that the proceeds of this account valued can be paid to you and then you and I can share the silver discs with you according to following
(1) 45% for you as the account owner (2) 50% for me (3) 5% will be set aside to defray all incidental expenses.
it will be very easy to convince the RICHER DONORS company since i shall make available to you materials and information with which a successful claim shall be placed on the vault. I shall be your guidance and instructor throughout the duration of this. All i require is your honest co-operation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. As soon as you agree to co-operate with me, I will meet with the officials of rhino vault so that silver discs and digital may be transferred to your property for delivery by myself (Theophilus P Wildebeest)
So if you are intrested, send a reply to me immediately and in your reply please include (mr badger, cosmic) your private phone and your fax numbers. Urgency has to be implied and this business must strictly be a deal between both of us. However if you are really sure of your integrity towards this proposal reply and call me immediately.
