Comments Early Show total time 1:45:23 +. SET 1 is from the Early Show NRPS set with Garcia, pedal steel; this is probably not quite the complete set, with a few songs missing at the end. SET 2 is the Early Show electric Dead set complete. There is a brief cut in Me And My Uncle at around 2:00. During the pause before the encore Phil explains that the Early Show people must now leave but they can come back in on their ticket stubs once the Late Show crowd has been accommodated.

There are no independent SBD masters of this show in the vault. The SBDs in circulation are copies from a master run from the venue's mixing board by their sound crew. There are circulating Stonybrook SBDs of quite a number of bands -- the Allmans (at least 3 dates), Airplane, Quicksilver, Moby Grape, Garcia Band ... Plainly someone at this venue had a clue.
