Week of October 12-18, 2020
Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have Grateful Dead music from 1977, 1981, and 1984.
Our first selection this week is from opening night of the five night run in New York City on the Spring Tour of 1977, with music from 4/29/77: Drums > The Wheel > Wharf Rat > Around And Around, Uncle John's Band.
Next is the start of the second set from 4/30/81 in Greensboro featuring Shakedown Street > Samson And Delilah ; It Must Have Been The Roses ; Estimated Prophet > Eyes Of The World.
Lastly this week is the end of the first set and start of the second set from 4/24/84 in New Haven, CT, where we have My Brother Esau ; Ramble On Rose; It's All Over Now> Don't Ease Me In, China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider.
Be sure to join us next week for more music from the vault.
This fine fine show seems to be on your radar Dave.
Made my morning that you posted some more of the SBD material that isn't previously in circulation.
I don't think the Wharf Rat > Around And Around tracks had seen the light of day before (or maybe I missed 'em).
So far I believe the following SBD Tracks from this show have made it out:
Set 1 -
Help On The Way > Slipknot! > Franklin's Tower (Pre-2012 Taper's Section. Mine is mislabeled 4/30/77, but I'm 99.9% sure it's from 4/29/77. Compared it to the Audience tape and they sounded the same.)
New Minglewood Blues (Pre-2012 Taper's Section)
Cassidy (Pre-2012 Taper's Section)
Set 2 -
Samson & Delilah, Sugaree > El Paso, Brown Eyed Women (Taper's Section 1/30/17)
Scarlet Begonias > Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad (Digital Download Series Bonus Tracks)
Drums > The Wheel > Wharf Rat > Around And Around, Uncle John's Band (Taper's Section 10/12/20)
By the way, thanks so much for the Taper's Section. Stumbled on to it in 2012ish, and it's helped me discover countless hours of Dead material and really makes Monday mornings great. I look forward to it every week.
Thanks for all the tunes. Keep 'em coming!
I was there, front row center with the future Mrs. Big at my side. After "Roses" she placed a dozen long-stemmed red roses on the stage in front of Jerry, and he gave her a big smile. We were part of a large group that had camped out for these tickets.
