Week of February 24-March 1, 2020

Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we’ll check out some music from 1960s, 1980s, and 1990s.

Our first selection is from 10/13/68 at the Avalon in San Francisco, where we have a variation on the Live/Dead suite, featuring Dark Star> Saint Stephen> The Eleven > Death Don't Have No Mercy.

Next is the start of the second set from the excellent from at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, NY, where we have Shakedown Street> Samson And Delilah ; He's Gone > Smokestack Lightnin' > Jam. This was one of the first tapes I received when I started tape trading, and I know it very well.

Lastly this week is the start of the second set from 10/14/94 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, where we have Scarlet Begonias > Fire On The Mountain ; Looks Like Rain ; Samba In The Rain ; Corrina. This was the Dead’s final run at MSG.

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

The Dome was so big they set up in the middle of floor, by far the largest indoor venue I think they played. Fun show Bird Song > Jack Straw to close first set was smoking. One of my Favorite Shakedown's.
