Encore And We Bid You Good Night
Comments This was all one long set with an acoustic passage in the middle running from Friend Of The Devil through Katie Mae and brief pauses before and after to re-arrange equipment. (1) Includes tuning and monitor levels.
There is a Tighten Up Jam starting about 5:50 into Dancin.

The opening of Casey Jones is clipped. The tape cuts in on the beginning of Good Lovin', losing around 90 seconds; the Lovelight is virtually intact; some copies do not have the unnecessary tapeflip, which represents a pathetic bit of malicious mischief. The tape in circulation is missing the encore, which is listed as in DeadBase IX.

This tape used to circulate labeled "Cincinnati 4/30/70" but Latvala reports that the vault tapes are indeed labeled 4/3/70 and argues for accepting this date. Ken Kesey & The Merry Pranksters and the Lemon Pipers were also on the bill (DeadBase IX).
