Just like your favorite jam, things are going to get a bit funky on Dead.net over the next week or so. Community accounts will be temporarily closed October 16th-17th and may be under further maintenance through October 22nd. But rest assured, we will be back up and better than ever shortly thereafter. Stay tuned!
May 15 - May 21, 2017
Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have music from 1973, and a double dose of 1980s Dead from 1981 and 1989.
Our first selection this week is from 7/1/73 at Universal Amphitheatre, the final night of a short, six show tour of the west coast, which featured stops in Vancouver, Portland, Seattle, and three nights at Universal Amphitheatre in LA. From the last night, we have the big second set jam, featuring Truckin' > Drums > The Other One > Wharf Rat> Me And Bobby McGee.
Next is the start of the show from 7/5/81 in Oklahoma City, featuring Shakedown Street ; The Promised Land ; Candyman; Cassidy ; Brown Eyed Women. I imagine it was pretty hot in July in Oklahoma City.
Lastly this week is the end of the show from the first night of the Summer Tour of 1989, one of the strongest tours of the Dead’s final decade, featuring The Wheel>Dear Mr. Fantasy>Hey Jude>Sugar Magnolia, Mighty Quinn from 7/2/89 at Foxboro, MA.
Be sure to join us next week for more music from the vault.
Some fine selections this week as always.
