Comments {Dark Star 0:00 > Mind Left Body 7:30 > Dark Star 9:20 > First Verse 10:50 to 12:40 > drums 20:55 > end 22:55} they take short break to fix the piano after Bobby McGee, followed by a cut in the tape. It cuts back in near the end of a Bobby story. There is a cut at 3:01 into I Know You Rider just after the second "headlight" verse, picking up in the middle of the following chorus. The first set cassette flips after the 14-beat Beat it on Down the Line. This tape ends after Bertha. The second tape resumes the second set and flips near the end of Dark Star. Splice at 3:03 of Wharf Rat after "I'm sure she's been true to you", continues during "wandered downtown".
Recordings 200 SBD; 180 AUD: There are at least 3 masters in existence. The SBD is virtually complete except for very brief dropouts during I Know You Rider And Wharf Rat. There is an excellent AUD, which was recorded by a friend of Dan McDonald's just a few feet from the front of the stage with permission from Jerry (this according to Dan's account). This tape is missing Tennessee Jed & Me And Bobby McGee. There is also at least one additional but inferior AUD master made from the audience In circulation.
