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.

10/01/94 the last of the GREAT ones

thanks for the HEADY year jumping selection this week!
10/01/94 is in my humble opinion THE LAST GREAT (all around) GRATEFUL DEAD SHOW!
Every note of this boston garden show is worth hearing...some of the most haunting and soulful garcia you'll ever hear!! there are several key points to this show...from the line in "so many roads" being "so many roads to HEAL my soul...." instead of the normal lyrics. The haunting "Tom Thumbs" solo.....and this solid "scarlet>Fire".... why wasn't this show a dick's picks? or official release? I already have a pristine copy but this is one of these shows that we ALL need to have in HDCD!!!!!! or perhaps a DVD with 5.1 DTS???

thanks again

p.s. its a GOOD thing that most people have split from posting here....I noticed no more/if not less bitching and moaning than there was during the whole stream switch ordeal....it wasn't an ordeal for me except having to wade hip deep in all the negativity!! GOOD TO SEE WERE BACK TO NORMAL around here!!!

thanks again....quality nuggets!

Where is everyone?

When this thing got started there were many fans here, now just a trickel. No complaints from me, always live the music. I do hope to hear of a new release this year from the vault. Seems like everyone has split?
Keep jamming.

DEW @ M.S.G. 9/18/87

Hey David ------->

Thanks for all the continued tasty treats from the vault. Do you think you could pull some selections from Madison Square Garden on 9/18/87 ---- most specifically the Morning Dew. Quite possibly the best Dew ever, it would be great to hear the vault version.

Hey TJ..good that you're

Hey TJ..good that you're here

when the dwindling handful of notwhiners finally have this space to themselves they'll probably start whining about not having any whiners left to whine about (or not)

Copenhagen October 1981

Hi David, keep on streaming. What about my request from June: The Forum, Copenhagen, October 1981. One of the Swedish guys wrote to me, he was there too. Do we still have a chance to hear thar second set in the best possible way?
