Comments This was the Bear's going away party. The SBD tape in circulation cuts in during China Cat Sunflower. Janis Joplin enters to cheers before Lovelight with "whadda you know that I know?" eliciting ribaldries from several band members (not the last). The only word for Janis & Pigpen's vocals on this tune is orgiastic. DeadBase IX lists Lovelight; Me And My Uncle; Cold Rain And Snow before China Cat Sunflower, and a second electric set: Casey Jones; Attics Of My Life; Cumberland Blues; Not Fade Away > Saint Stephen; Uncle John's Band. It seems probable that there's more of this in the vault. NRPS and Rubber Duck Company were also on the bill (DeadBase IX).
