Tapers Section By David Lemieux

Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have a batch of Grateful Dead spanning a short spam, 1988-1992.

Our first stop this week is at the Met Center in Bloomington, MN, where we have the post-Drums sequence made up of Space>The Wheel>Gimme Some Lovin'>All Along The Watchtower>Black Peter>Lovelight. This was the first show of the tour that would also see stops at Alpine, Buckeye, SPAC, Rochester and Oxford, ME.

Next is another post-Drums sequence, this one from 6/10/90, the final night of a three night run at Cal Expo, featuring Gimme Some Lovin' > Standing On The Moon > Throwing Stones > Not Fade Away, The Last Time. These were some mighty fine shows, and make up the start of the summer tour that would end up being Brent's final tour with the band. The next two weekends of shows after this, at Shoreline and Eugene, are also excellent.

Finally this week, from the second of a two night run at the Knickerbocker Arena in Albany, NY, we have Space > The Last Time > China Doll > Sugar Magnolia, Attics Of My Life. This was the first tour featuring only Vince on the entire tour, as Bruce had left after the 3/23/92 show at the Palace in Auburn Hills, MI.

Join us back here next week for more great tunes from the Grateful Dead archive. And as always, feel free to write to us at the email address below.

Archived taper's

Not one to complain about the loss of free stuff... But when did the Taper's Section archive get abbreviated? I just went to find a particular Franklin's Tower and found that many of the selections are now gone (whine, whine, whine).

Facing Errors

I am also facing exact errors. When we hope to see a fix?

Broken player

Unlike last week, this week, the error is in the URL for
the file that the player must access rather than the URL
for the player itself. It does not appear to be a simple typo. will have to fix this one.

I wish that they would simply click on each of the links
to test the page before they make it available to users.
