Comments Total time 1:53:12 +. SET 1 is the conclusion of a NRPS set with Garcia, pedal steel. SET 2 is the electric Dead set. Broken string after Hard To Handle. This is the deep Space Dark Star of the year. Pigpen plays harmonica on Goin' Down The Road.

The circulating AUD is Ken Leigh's excellent master, made with a Sony T-110 with internal mic from the center loge. There is no SBD master of this show in the vault.


For this run of shows at the Capitol Theater (Nov. 5-8) the Dead played a single concert each night (not "Early" and "Late" shows as has sometimes been thought). The Capitol Theater's Village Voice ad for October 1 lists shows ("featurning NRPS") at 8:00 PM on November 5th, 6th, 7th & 8th; there's no further mention of these shows at all in the the Capitol's Voice ads for 10/29 and 11/5, while ads for the shows at the 46th St. Rock Palace in Brooklyn are prominent in these same issues.

On Thursday and Sunday the show consisted of an acoustic Dead set, a NRPS set, and an electric Dead set. On Friday and Saturday, they added a second electric Dead set.
