Comments Early and Late Shows.

Early Show
(1) The early show begins with the 2001 theme music playing over the PA (the prelude of Richard Strauss' Also Sprach Zarathustra); at its conclusion the Dead launch into Mason's Children (this is audible on the AUD tape; the circulating SBD cassette cuts in on the last 3:11 of Mason's Children; the timing given here is from the CD). The circulating SBD cuts in on Mason's Children and breaks off just before the end of Cosmic Charlie; timings are based on the AUD where it is more complete. Possibly there is an encore missing.
Cold Blood and Lighthouse were also on the bill (DeadBase IX).

One person claims that the early and late shows for this date have been reversed, but others contradict him, and the tape evidence seems to as well.
