Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have music from 1972, 1973, and 1980.
Our first selection this week is the big jam from 9/3/72 in Boulder, CO, the Grateful Dead’s first appearance at Folsom Field, where we have He's Gone>Other One>Wharf Rat. This was included as filler at the end of CD 4 of Dick’s Picks Vol. 36, making this the final piece of music ever released in the Dick’s Picks series.
Next is music from Jerry’s birthday on 8/1/73 at Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City, NJ, where the big jam featured a very Jerry-centric sequence of Dark Star > El Paso > Eyes Of The World> Morning Dew.
Lastly this week is the end of the second set from 12/26/80 at the Oakland Auditorium Arena, which would later be re-named the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center. From this show, the first night of a five night New Year’s run, we have Not Fade Away > Black Peter > Around And Around > Good Lovin'.
Be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault, and here’s wishing everyone a safe and sane 4th of July!
