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!
July 17 - July 23, 2017
Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have a triple dose of 1980s Grateful Dead, from 1980, 1981 and 1988.
Our first selection this week is a quartet of first set music from 12/27/80 in Oakland, the second night of a five night run: Looks Like Rain ; Tennessee Jed ; Passenger ; It Must Have Been The Roses.
Next is the terrific three song closing sequence from the first set of 5/13/81 in Providence, part of a great tour with loads of A-level shows: Bird Song > Let It Grow > Deal.
Lastly this week is the start of the second set from 6/28/88 at SPAC in Saratoga Springs, NY, the Dead’s final show at SPAC: Scarlet Begonias> Fire On The Mountain ; Estimated Prophet> Crazy Fingers.
Be sure to stop by next week for more music from the vault.
there would be heaping helpings of glorious '85.
Box it up!
Maybe one day we will win that Powerball.
I agree with SPACEBROTHER if you also include the Jam of the Week as the 4th release:
December 28, 1980
Oakland Auditorium Arena
Bring 'em on!
