Tapers Section By David Lemieux

Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have Grateful Dead music from 1973, 1978, and 1990.

Our first selection is from RFK Stadium in Washington, DC, on 6/10/73, one of the more famous (and excellent!) shows from 1973, where we have Eyes Of The World > Stella Blue ; Big River; Here Comes Sunshine.

Next is the start of the second set from the great 6/4/78 show at UCSB in Santa Barbara, CA, where we have Samson And Delilah ; Ship Of Fools ; Estimated Prophet > Eyes Of The World.

Lastly this week is the opening of the show from the middle night of a terrific three night at Cal Expo, on 6/9/90, featuring Let The Good Times Roll ; Feel Like A Stranger ; Peggy-O, Me And My Uncle > Mexicali Blues ; Loser.

Be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault.

The 2nd nite has been around forever. Where's the first day. Where's the Daves Pick? I'd buy that one!

Grateful you posted those links.....Have been listening to "Taper's" every single Monday since inception (and Friday for "Jam Of The Week").....couldn't imagine goin'down the road feelin' bad without them!!!
Shout outs to everyone who is involved in keeping all aspects of Grateful Dead magic alive. We really are fortunate to have all that we do when it concerns this legendary band.

Incredible! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
It's on a totally different subject but it
has pretty much the same page layout and design. Excellent
choice of colors!

All 3 Selections Identical

Hi guys - thanks for the music but all 3 links point to the 1978 selection.
