Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have music from 1977, and a double dose of the first half of the 1980s, from 1981 and 1984.
Our first selection is from the first night of a five night run at the Palladium in New York City on 4/29/77, where we have the start of the second set, featuring a few usually first set songs: Samson And Delilah ; Sugaree > El Paso ; Brown Eyed Women.
Next is the start of the second set from 5/1/81 in Hampton, VA, where the Dead always seemed to play extremely good, inspired shows: Feel Like A Stranger > Franklin's Tower > Lost Sailor > Saint Of Circumstance.
Lastly this week, from 4/27/84 in Providence, RI, we have the end of the show, featuring Space > The Wheel > Wharf Rat > Around And Around > Johnny B. Goode, Touch Of Grey.
Thanks for stopping by, and we’ll look forward to seeing you here next week for more music from the vault here at the Tapers’ Section.
