Week of November 2-8, 2020
Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have Grateful Dead music spanning only five years, but three distinct eras of Dead music: 1974, 1978, 1979.
Our first stop this week is the Dead’s performance in Missoula, MT, on 5/14/74, the third show featuring the Wall Of Sound, and the Dead’s only show in Montana. From this great show we have the big second set jam featuring Weather Report Suite > Dark Star> China Doll.
Next up is the start of the second set from 5/13/78 at the Spectrum in Philadelphia where we have Bertha> Good Lovin'; Terrapin Station > Playing In The Band.
Lastly this week is the big second set jam from 5/12/79 at UMass Amherst on Brent’s first tour with the Grateful Dead, where we have Terrapin Station > Playing In The Band> Drums> Space> Not Fade Away > Stella Blue > Good Lovin', including our second Terrapin>Playing this week. We hope you don’t mind.
Be sure to join us next week for more music from the Grateful Dead’s vault.
Interesting differences in the Terrapin versions separated by a year. Is the UMass Amherst show available in SBD format anywhere?
