Comments Total time [1:59:32 +]. The old circulating tape of the 1st set begins with Graham's introduction ; the newly circulating tape of both sets is missing this intro and cuts in on Schoolgirl 14 seconds after the beginning of the song. There is a cut in The Eleven at 11:05 on the circulating SBD, probably due to the end of a reel.

The Eleven analyzes St. Stephen > 1st vocals 1:08 > transition Jam 2:06 > Eleven Jam 5:02 > Eleven vocals 0:40 > Eleven Jam 3:#30 > Eleven 2nd theme Jam 3:16 > Turn On Your Love Light. This is the Mountains Jam > Dark Star > St. Stephen used on Live Dead, which picks up the Mountains Jam about 1:10 after it begins.

All four of these shows at Fillmore West were mastered onto reels. In the late '80s Healy remastered them and in recent years these versions of 2/27/69 and 3/2/69 have come into circulation.
