Week of December 2-8, 2019
Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have Grateful Dead music from 1971, 1981, and 1987.
Our first selection this week is from 8/14/71 at the Berkeley Community Theatre, a month after Bill Graham had closed the Fillmore West and was trying out alternative midsized venues for Grateful Dead shows in the Bay Area. From this first night of a two night run, we have this excellent second set jam: Truckin'> Drums > The Other One ; Me And Bobby McGee ; Sugar Magnolia; Not Fade Away> Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad > Not Fade Away, Johnny B. Goode, Uncle John’s Band.
Next is the end of the second set from 8/14/81 in Seattle, WA, where we have Playing In The Band > Wharf Rat> I Need A Miracle > Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad > Johnny B. Goode.
Our final selection this week is the entire first set from the middle night of a three night run at Red Rocks on 8/12/87, the final year the Dead would appear there, where we have Hell In A Bucket> Sugaree ; Yankee Doodle Tuning ; Never Trust A Woman; Cumberland Blues> Mexicali Blues ; Friend Of The Devil ; My Brother Esau; Bird Song> The Music Never Stopped.
Be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault.
Anybody know how we can claim our calendars if were selected as winners during 30 Days of Dead 2019?
