Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week, we’re going to check out three shows from the 1970s, from 1972, 1973 and 1979.
Our first selection is classic, perfect sequence from the outstanding Fall Tour of 1972, which featured great music at every stop. From Austin, TX, on 11/22/72, we have He's Gone > Truckin'> Drums> The Other One > Stella Blue.
From almost exactly a year later, in the same state, we have a nearly-identical sequence of music from 11/23/73 in El Paso, TX, featuring He's Gone > Truckin' > The Other One > Space > Me And Bobby McGee. It’s an interesting and cool twist at the end when they veer into Bobby McGee rather than a ballad after The Other One.
Lastly this week, from 11/24/79 in San Diego, we have the start of the show, featuring a very rare first set opener: China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider ; Mama Tried > Mexicali Blues ; Peggy-O ; Cassidy.
Be sure to stop in next week for more music from the vault.
