Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have Grateful Dead music from 1980, 1984 and 1991.
Our first selection this week is a quintet of songs from 5/6/80 at Penn State University, music that was included on one of the Road Trips releases a few years back: Lazy Lightning > Supplication ; Althea; Lost Sailor > Saint Of Circumstance.
Next is the start of the second set from 4/27/84 in Providence, RI, where we have this cool sequence featuring a double dose of beautiful Jerry ballads: Playing In The Band> China Doll > High Time > Man Smart (Woman Smarter).
Our last stop this week is the start of the second set from 5/3/91 at Cal Expo, the first night of a three night run in Sacramento. China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider ; Estimated Prophet ; He's Gone. The shows the week before in Las Vegas and the week after at Shoreline included Bruce Hornsby, but these Cal Expo shows were Vince-only affairs.
Be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault.
