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.

Comments Total time [2:31:20]. The circulating 45-minute cassette side version of the first set has several minutes of Turn On Your Love Light cut to make the set fit the side ; the complete first set requires a 50 minute side. On the circulating tape St. Stephen cuts during its Jam at 4:08 and the tape resumes during vocals at "...Wonder who will water all the children" -- i.e. the tape in circulation is missing a couple minutes here.

The Eleven analyzes St. Stephen > 1st vocals #0:48 > transition Jam 1:45 > Eleven Jam 6:24 > Eleven vocals 0:40 > Eleven Jam 3:18 > Eleven 2nd theme Jam 3:42 > transition 0:30 > Death Don't Have No Mercy.
