Comments Other artist(s): Jefferson Airplane. To see the concert art: http://www.pompano.net/~goodbear/concert_art/07_15-17_66.html to listen to the show using "Real Audio": http://www.deadradio.com/vshow/terrapin0619.ram http://sugarmegs.org/ram/gd7-17-66.ram Bill Graham introduces the band before Viola Lee Blues: "The oldest juveniles in the state of California: the Grateful Dead." Viola Lee Blues timing includes the [0:07] 'intro'. When the 'intro' occurred seems to be in debate. Some say the 2nd set, others say after two songs and others what we have listed above. David Gans, as indicated below, seems to say that what is listed above as set 2 comes first on the tapes he found and that it is the tail end of set 1. David Gans posted to r.m.gd about these shows: Subject: Re: Can't get much older than this! From: David Gans Date: 1997/03/20 Message-Id: <3330FCDE.5EF@well.com> Newsgroups: rec.music.gdead this is all accurate. I digitized these shows from master reels that an old friend had in his garage for years. There's a #I Know You Rider at the start of that 7/17 set, and there was another 7/17 tape that was unusable because of damage to the reel. There is also a nice long Cream Puff War from the end of the first set of 7/16...

David Sorochty: Actually, this is most of set 2 of this show. One additional song from set 1 (#He Was a Friend of Mine before Cream Puff War [GDH #501]) and one more song from set 2 (Dancin# follows Baby Blue) are on the reels David Gans got from his friend, but are not listed in DeadBase and do not circulate. Midnight Hour which DeadBase lists as the version with Joan Baez & Mimi Farina is not on these reels. This Midnight Hour was previously listed as being 8/7/66. See listing for "9/11/66" for more info. DeadBase X [under 'Tape timings']: After Viola Lee Blues -- Phil: "That was a song about jail. This is a song about... well... No, it's a funny song." Before You Don't. Have to Ask -- Jerry: "Any of you folks right in the first few rows here have a match?" Phil: "Oh here."
Recordings 50 SB. The complete list circulates In two-track(?) SBD. SBD & GDH #226, #501 exist. Cream Puff War was On GDH #501. David Gans reels from friend's garage, 15ips.
