Week of September 21-27, 2020
Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have Grateful Dead music from the 1980s, in 1982, 1983, and 1988.
Our first selection this week is from 4/11/82 at Nassau Coliseum, where we have the end of the first set featuring Althea > Beat It On Down The Line ; Row Jimmy ; Let It Grow. The set ends with two Wake Of The Flood classics.
Next up is the start of the second set from 4/10/83 in Morgantown, WV, where we have Touch Of Grey; Man Smart (Woman Smarter); Uncle John's Band> Playing In The Band> Drums.
Lastly this week is the start of the second set from 3/31/88 at the Brendan Byrne Arena in East Rutherford, NY, where we have Scarlet Begonias > Fire On The Mountain ; Samson and Delilah ; Terrapin Station. This was the first time I saw Terrapin Station live, and I remember it vividly, from the 15th row on the floor in front of Jerry.
Be sure to come by next week to check out some more tunes from the vault.
Was my 34th birthday. I had best “Listen Up!”
