Comments There were Early and Late shows. A review by Peter Goddard in the Toronto Telegram for Wed. July 9, 1969 refers to performances of Casey Jones and Morning Dew. These tunes were probably from the Early Show. In the Toronto Star Jack Batten notes that the early show opened with two country tunes, the rest of the set consisting of a variety of blues, more country, and "numbers reminiscent of San Francisco's early rock days." Bob Langmaid thinks these may have included Mountains of the Moon and Doin' That Rag, and probably St. Stephen. According to Malcolm O'Brien, who attended the early show, the two opening country tunes were Green Grass and El Paso, with Garcia on pedal steel for both. He also distinctly remember That's It For The Other One and thinks they may also have played New Potato Caboose. David Galbraith, another audience member, confirms Green Grass, The Other One, and Morning Dew.
