Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we'll check out some mighty fine Grateful Dead music from 1972, 1973 and 1979.

Our first stop this week is at the Palace Theatre in Waterbury, CT, on 9/24/72, where we have this fine batch of second set tunes: Greatest Story Ever Told>Bertha>Promised Land, Friend of the Devil, Jack Straw, Tomorrow Is Forever. I just checked out some google images of this place, and it's a spectacular venue!

Next up is music from 10/29/73 in St. Louis, where we have the second half of the first set, featuring Don't Ease Me In, Black-Throated Wind, Tennessee Jed, The Race Is On, Row Jimmy, Eyes Of The World>China Doll, Around and Around. I love these first set Eyes Of The Worlds, always a grand way to head toward set two.

Last this week is the show-opening sequence from 11/24/79 in San Diego: China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider, Mama Tried>Mexicali Blues, Peggy-O, Cassidy. It's always fun to see rare show-openers like this China>Rider.

Be sure to join us next week for more tunes from the vault.

Ahhh (sigh) Good Morning! I am waking up to The Eyes of the World I got a whiskey buzz that would kill a rat. And with all this great music, it's going to be a very beautiful day. I will let go of the things that harm me then...later enjoy the storm. I dusted off my Tractor Trailer inner-tube incase someone needs a rescue out there. I'll be in painless operation and like a Saint Bernard---I will be quick to sher. Until our whiskey scented perspiration finds us rest. "Pass the whiskey round..." It's Saturday Morning, kinda--- grab one when you can, and that goes double for Sunday, xo! I will be sober by noon because I've been drinking to get sober, "my time coming anyday". It goes like that when you don't drink to get drunk: Drink to get sober...today... with me, xo! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9EThZ1v-yXU
