Week of March 20-26, 2023
Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have Grateful Dead music from 1973, 1984, and 1988.
Our first stop this week is the Dead’s first show at Memorial Coliseum in Portland, OR, on 6/24/73, where we have this majestic sequence of Dark Star > Eyes Of The World> China Doll > Sugar Magnolia, One More Saturday Night.
Next is the end of the show from the excellent 6/27/84 Merriweather Post Pavillion show in Columbia, MD, where we have Space> Morning Dew> Throwing Stones > Not Fade Away.
Lastly this week is the start of the second set from 6/25/88 at Buckeye Lake in Ohio, where we have three new songs and a classic: Victim Or The Crime ; Blow Away ; Foolish Heart> Terrapin Station> Drums.
Be sure to stop by next week for more tunes from the vault.
Three different takes on relationships and love in this sequence. Interesting comparisons. I just read that Billy didn't care much for Blow Away, said it was a Brent tune not a Grateful Dead tune.
Dave, you know of a program to enter dead shows and it makes a deadabase fo tunes, numTimesPlayed, etc Like a personal Deadbase.
lOVED THE bUCKEYE SHOWS...
