October 17- October 23, 2011
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.
The initial selection from Bloomington, MN, leads to 'URL NOT FOUND'.
Since I don't see a url on the player this week I can't try the solution ecb found last week to solve a similar problem. I hope this can be fixed--it looks tasty.
Using a different browser later I find the url visible but still a dead link. ecb's request that staff test their links seems a good and simple way to make the site work better.
thanks ecb for your constructive advice.
