Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we'll check in on 13 years of Grateful Dead history, from 1972 to 1985.

Our first stop this week is on 10/24/72 in Milwaukee, WI, where we have the second set jam of Truckin'>Drums>The Other One>Space>He's Gone>The Other One. These Fall 1972 second sets featuring The Other One as the jam centerpiece are some of the best jams the Grateful Dead ever played.

Next we have the end of the second set from 9/23/82 in New Haven, CT, featuring The Wheel>The Other One>Wharf Rat>Around and Around>Johnny B. Goode, Baby Blue. This was a fine tour for the Grateful Dead, including some of the newer songs (Touch Of Grey, West L.A. Fadeaway, Throwing Stones, Day Job).

Next up is the entire second set from 11/22/85 at the Kaiser in Oakland, with Touch of Grey>Estimated Prophet>Eyes Of The World>Drums>Space>Morning Dew>Throwing Stones>Lovelight, Brokedown Palace.

Be sure to stop by next week for more tunes from the vault. As always, we encourage you to write to us with questions or comments, sent to the email address below.

this GD72 strengthens my case for "why bother listening to any GD after 1979." Sure there are good shows after 1979 that were fun to attend, as well as to listen to on CD or tape or whatever now, but I don't listen to them much because there is so much awesome stuff in the previous years.

If there is an official October '72 Dave's Pick, you'll need a time machine to go back to the second before it is announced to insure getting one before they are sold out. October '72 (for me) is the PINNACLE of the ENTIRE DEAD PERFORMING CAREER droooooooooLLLLLLLLL If there isn't much in the Vault, release everything you have from October, call it the "Everything We Have From October '72 in the Vault Box Set." :)

...on that Milwaukee clip. As one that thinks the Europe '72 could have benefited from single show release treatment, Oct. 72 really should be considered for either single show release or box set treatment. Regardless, it sure is nice to listen to here! Thanks Dead.net!
