Week of September 28-October 4, 2020
Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have Grateful Dead music from 1969 and a double dose of early 1980s Dead.
Our first selection this week is from 4/17/69 in St. Louis, at Washington University, where we have a classic Live/Dead sequence with a bit of a twist or two, featuring Dark Star>St. Stephen>It’s A Sin>St. Stephen>Lovelight.
Next up is second set music from 4/12/82 at Nassau Coliseum, where we have this great batch of music featuring Man Smart (Woman Smarter) > Sugaree ; Estimated Prophet > Uncle John's Band.
From exactly one year later we have the start of the second set from 4/12/83 in Binghamton, NY, where we have Help On The Way> Slipknot!> Franklin's Tower; Lost Sailor> Saint Of Circumstance; Terrapin Station.
Be sure to join is here next week for more music from the vault.
Can we have some solid Drums>Space segments from the 80's please? Those often were some of the best parts of the show! :-) :-) :-)
Was something about feedback in the early 70s that was a primal altered states sound abstract Impressionism that i Ioved. I even loved double drum solos from 1970.
Now the drums / space segments of 80s and 90s were plenty interesting and none too shabby, just different.
Victim or the Crime had a dystopian discordant section (43) that was super interesting. A truncated flashback to the psychedelic feeling of the old time feedback. But of course even 90s Victim or the Crime is now a distant transmission of faltering radio signals being received from somewhere out by Saturn. Going to be very difficult to single handedly to repair the antenna. Damned HAL9000
That Help on the Way is SICK!!!!
WAY WAY back in the 90's DG selected this very segment to air on the GDH it's always been of my favorites. This whole show beckons the full Norman.
