Comments Total time [2:50:46 +]. Jerry announces a break after Uncle John. Before the second set he says "well, looks like the '70s are gonna be wierd." The Jam following the first Alligator hints at Goin Down The Road. There is a cut at 1:48 of Feedback. There is a cut at 11:19 of The Eleven, probably the flip of the master cassette. The Eleven analyzes: Drums > Eleven Jam 6:38 > Eleven vocals 0:42 > Eleven Jam 3:59# > Jam in 12s 1:51. The pause after Not Fade Away contains a Merry Go Round tuning and a Dark Star tease. There is a cut in Silver Threads at 1:02.
