    August 28 - September 03, 2017

    Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have music from 1972, and a double dose of late-Brent material, from 1987 and 1988.

    Our first stop this week is on 9/9/72 at the Hollywood Palladium, a very cool building that brought out something great in the Grateful Dead. From this show, we have the classic 1972 jam sequence of He's Gone > Truckin'> Drums > The Other One.

    Next is the start of the show from 9/11/87 in Landover, MD, the first show of a three night stop at the Capital Center, where the Dead hadn’t played since 1982. From this show, we have Bertha >Promised Land; Candyman; New Minglewood Blues; When Push Comes To Shove.

    Lastly this week, from a year later on 8/28/88 in Eugene, OR, we have the start of the second set, featuring an uncommon second-set opening sequence: Jack Straw > Bertha ; Truckin' > Terrapin Station.

    Be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault.

The 2 1972 shows must've been wonderful at this small venue on Sunset Blvd. Lawrence Welk played there often and Tommy Dorsey, with Frank Sinatra, were early performers.

I'm really diggin this Eugene show and enjoying Brent's contributions to keys, but, especially vocals. Jerry's got a little energy in this Bertha- Good stuff! Cheers.

8/28/88...what a waste of a show. those who love it...I am happy for you. but to me...so sad. that Jack Straw just lies there like a fat pig. I was there, and wasn't impressed even then. Robert Cray, then Jimmy Cliff, then the GD. sheet, man, I can't listen to any more...

I was fortunate to see both Palladium shows in 1971 and then in 1972. I have a clear memory of Weir telling the taper to move his equipment back a little bit for better taping. It was so easy to wander around the floor area. There was even a bar upstairs overlooking the floor. You had to be 21 to go up there - I was only 19 in 1972 and couldn't go upstairs. The things we remember. Thank you for prompting the memories that bring a smile. take care
