Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have Grateful Dead music from 1978, 1983 and 1990.
Our first selection this week is from 9/2/78, the Dead's first-ever show at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ, where we have Estimated Prophet>Eyes Of The World. A couple of days later the Dead left for Egypt and their triumphant shows beneath the pyramids.
From five years later on 9/4/83 in Park City, UT, we have the start of the second set, featuring Scarlet Begonias> Fire On The Mountain ; Man Smart (Woman Smarter).
Lastly this week, we have the entire first set from Vince Welnick's first show as a member of the Grateful Dead on 9/7/90 in Richfield, OH. He mostly played it laid back, but you do hear quite a few moments where he steps out a bit, and the crowd reacts with warm welcomes: Cold Rain & Snow > Walkin' Blues ; Ramble On Rose ; Me And My Uncle > Big River ; Althea ; When I Paint My Masterpiece ; Bird Song ; Picasso Moon ; U.S. Blues.
Be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault.
