Comments This may be more than one set. If there was a setbreak it probably came after Good Lovin', or possibly after Cumberland. Jack Casady & Jorma Kaukonen enter to hoots & hollers about 2 minutes into Goin' Down The Road, Papa John Creach immediately afterward, and they continue on stage throughout the rest of the show; Jorma takes lead vocals on Uncle Sam Blues and Come Back Baby. There was also a NRPS set.

There is a brief Saint Stephen Jam starting 7:30 into Hard To Handle. Early in Jam1 there are references to Hey Bo Diddley and Who Do You Love; around 3:20 Jerry riffs on Nobody's Fault in quadruple time. Around 6:30 into this Jam a riff resembling Tequila shows up, anticipating Jam2, which returns to this figure several times. There is a break in the tape 41 seconds after the last Drums but fair continuity in the Jam; 20-40 seconds at most are lost in this lacuna

The first 110 minutes of the recording are not too bad; thereafter the sound quality deteriorates severely (the 2nd 90-minute tape starts with Drums > Good Lovin'). Reportedly, the master was made by one Mike Tannenbaum on reels concealed in a wheelchair at the center of the 5th row (the back of the orchestra pit?) ; the first 90 minutes of the tape sound consistent with this; during the 2nd tape it sounds as if the taper perhaps got swarmed when the crowd got up & thereafter his mics were muffled by surrounding bodies, but there are also other problems with the second 90 minutes of this tape, among them pitch problems perhaps caused by the deck bouncing with the dancing floorboards. Whatever the cause, the quality of reproduction on the 2nd tape of this set is piss poor.
