Welcome back to the Tapers' Section and our first full week of 2016 music offerings from the GratefulDead's vault.
Our first stop this week is on 8/12/81 in Salt Lake City, where we have the music coming out of Space, although we're missing the final two songs of the set (Around and Around>Good Lovin'). From this fine show, we have Space>Spanish Jam>Truckin'>Morning Dew.
Next is the start of the second set from my first Grateful Dead show on 3/26/87 in Hartford. Even though I was virtually last row of the building, I remember everything about this show so vividly. Enjoy this batch of very high energy Dead: China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider, Looks Like Rain>He's Gone.
Lastly this week is the entire first set from 7/31/88 at Laguna Seca in Monterey, CA, where we have Mississippi Half-Step, Little Red Rooster, West LA Fadeaway, Me and My Uncle>Big River, Ramble On Rose, Gentlemen Start Your Engines, Masterpiece, Bird Song.
Be sure to join us here next week with more music from the vault.
