Comments The Star Spangled Banner is performed upon a slidewhistle -- perpetrator unknown.

The tape in circulation was edited, probably off 1st generation cassette copies of the master reels, possibly onto DAT. There are splices before and after Mama Tried, Next Time, and Good Lovin', and songs are probably missing in these gaps.

According to DeadBase IX they played Hard To Handle and Casey Jones after Morning Dew ; Me & My Uncle and Cold Rain & Snow after Mama Tried ; and High Time after Next Time You See Me.

It is impossible to tell from the circulating tape whether this show had one Dead set or two. If there were two sets probably Good Lovin' concluded the first.

On the circulating tape the Uncle John's Jam breaks off, cutting back to Dark Star at 1:45 ; 20 seconds to 2 minutes of Jamming must be lost here. On the tape in circulation the Turn On Your Love Light also cuts off before its conclusion, as they are beginning to wind it up ; probably a couple minutes are missing here.

There is also a bogus tape in circulation mislabeled "Fillmore Auditorium 11/7/69 II ;" this is actually a degraded bad speed copy of 2/13/70 2nd set SBD.
