Comments The SBD master is a 7 inch reel at 7.5 ips 1/2 track. Timings are from the circulating cassette.

New Orleans ("Way Down The Mississippi Down To New Orleans") is the same song performed on 11/8/70 (and not, as sometimes reported, The Battle Of New Orleans).

In the pause before New Orleans Bobby responds to an audience request with "Hey Jude's a lost cause." Jerry counters with "The first request that blows our minds we'll do."

From Searchin' they segue into a Jam on Good Lovin' first and then Jerry leads off with the intro to the tune (after a false start -- or musical cue). Jerry handles vocals on Good Lovin'.

Good Lovin' has a cut at 1:09, 33:09 into the tape -- the result of a break in the master reel during the transfer to cassette ; probably less than 3 minutes are missing here.

The retard at the end of King Bee is pornographic.

"Thanks for keepin us high," says Jerry after Turn On Your Love Light.

The tape containing #Dark Star > St. Stephen > Eleven > Drums > High Time#, long in circulation mislabeled "Family Dog 8/29/69," is actually Family Dog 8/30/69.
