Just like your favorite jam, things are going to get a bit funky on Dead.net over the next week or so. Community accounts will be temporarily closed October 16th-17th and may be under further maintenance through October 22nd. But rest assured, we will be back up and better than ever shortly thereafter. Stay tuned!
December 25- December 31, 2017
Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where we wrap up 2017 with a batch of Grateful Dead music from the 1980s for your listening pleasure.
Our first stop this week is at the San Francisco Civic on 12/30/83, the always great night before New Year’s Eve for Dead shows, where we have the entire second set: Shakedown Street ; Man Smart (Woman Smarter) ; Terrapin Station > Space > Drums > Space > Truckin' > Wharf Rat > Good Lovin’.
Next is the end of the show from 9/12/87 at the Capital Center in Landover, MD, where we have Space> Truckin > I Need A Miracle > Morning Dew>Turn On Your Lovelight, One More Saturday Night, Black Muddy River.
And finally this week, another end-of-show segment, this one from 12/10/89 at the Forum in Inglewood, CA: Space> The Wheel > I Need A Miracle > Stella Blue> Good Lovin', Baby Blue.
Be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault, and a Happy New Year to everyone!
Thank you for the content of this episode.The music they made is underexposed in comparison with their musical legacy during the late 60's and the 70's decade.The 80's had their ups and downs ( understatement...haha.. ) and it is noticeable in their music , but hey ; it's the Grateful Dead.
Love 12.30.83! Thank you, Dave!
