Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have music from 1973, 1979 and 1980.
Our first selection is from 12/1/73 in Boston, the middle night of a three night run at the Music Hall, featuring Playing In The Band > Uncle John's Band > Playing In The Band ; Row Jimmy. The first and third shows were included on Dick’s Picks Vol. 14, but there was some good music within the unreleased middle show.
Next is the first set from 12/1/79 in Pittsburgh, where the Dead played Jack Straw> Sugaree; Me And My Uncle > Big River ; Loser ; Easy To Love You ; New Minglewood Blues; Althea ; The Music Never Stopped. I’d had the second set of this show in my tape trading days as one of the first 10 tapes I was ever given, and was happy to finally receive the second set many years later.
Lastly this week is the start of the second set from 11/28/80 in Lakeland, FL, where we have Feel Like A Stranger ; To Lay Me Down > Let It Grow > Terrapin Station, featuring a couple of usually-first set songs in the second set.
Be sure to join us here next week for more great music from the vault.
