Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we have Grateful Dead music from 1968, 1976, and 1985.
Our first stop is on 12/7/68 in Louisville, KY, one of the few later-1968 board tapes in the vault. This is from a cassette master, so the sound is a little rough, a little dull, but the music shines through: Dark Star>St. Stephen>The Eleven.
Next is music from the really interesting Fall Tour of 1976. After the triumphant return to the stage with the June-July 1976 theatre shows, plus the two August stadium shows, the Dead hit the road for 10 days on September 23 though October 3, with many great, exciting moments and shows. From 10/1/76 in Indianalpolis, we have first set music featuring Deal ; Cassidy ; Friend Of The Devil; Big River, Brown Eyed Women ,It's All Over Now , Scarlet Begonias, The Promised Land.
Lastly this week is the end of the show from 6/22/85 at Alpine Valley Music Theatre in Wisconsin, a great place to see the Grateful Dead. From this show we have Space > Dear Mr. Fantasy > I Need A Miracle > Stella Blue > Throwing Stones > Not Fade Away Encore Brokedown Palace.
Be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault.
