    Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, this week we have Grateful Dead music from 1970, 1987 and 1989.

    Our first stop this week is the opening night of a very famous three night run at the Fillmore East in New York City, on 2/11/70, where we have this exceptional sequence of Dark Star>Lovelight, featuring loads of special guests in one of the best sit-ins the Dead ever hosted live.

    Next is the high-energy, fun second set closing sequence from my second Grateful Dead show, on 6/30/87 at Kingswood Music Theatre at Canada’s Wonderland north of Toronto, where we have Space > The Other One > China Doll > Dear Mr. Fantasy > Around And Around > Good Lovin', Box Of Rain.

    Lastly this week is the end of the show from 2/7/89 at the Kaiser in Oakland, the last piece of music the Grateful Dead would ever play at their de facto home venue throughout the 1980s, where we have Space >The Wheel >Throwing Stones >Foolish Heart > Good Lovin', Knockin' On Heaven's Door.

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

Excellent selections this week! Especially digging the Dark Star on 2-11-70 followed by Lovelight w/ the Allman Brothers Band sitting in. Two Spanish Jams in one week - nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile :)

There is a small section, near the end of either Lovelight or da other, when the music cascades up, to, around, and back again, a rapture of life. It's a small piece of time wherein this occurs..... one of the greatest experiences in music I have had.

Easily my favorite Lovelight. This show along with the 13th and 14th would make a fantastic box set. I know that probably won't happen because of what's been released on DP4. But it's been 20 years and the remastering quality has increased so I have no doubt these shows would benefit from that. Either way, thank you for this. It's been my listening pleasure.
