Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have Grateful Dead music from 1972, 1973 and 1989.
Our first stop this week is on 1/2/72 at Winterland, the first show of 1972, and an auspicious start to the year many consider to be the Dead’s finest. From this show, we have Brown Eyed Women, Casey Jones, Good Lovin'>China Cat>Good Lovin', Ramble On Rose, Sugar Magnolia, including a very cool split Good Lovin’/stand-alone China Cat.
Next is music from another era in Grateful Dead history, the fall tour of 1973, from 10/25/73 in Madison, WI, the second visit to Dane County Coliseum in 1973 for the Grateful Dead, where we have this great sequence to end the show: Weather Report Suite; Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad > One More Saturday Night, Uncle John's Band.
From 16 years later on 10/20/89 at the Spectrum in Philadelphia, we have this great show-ending jam, featuring Space > I Will Take You Home > The Other One > Wharf Rat ; Sugar Magnolia, Brokedown Palace.
Be sure to join us next week for more great music from the vault.
