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.
