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.

Me & My Uncle was played after Chinatown Shuffle.
Note to self: Look before you leap. Deadbase is not infallible.
