Comments Dire Wolf through Mountains are acoustic. Besides a cassette SBD master, as Rob Bertrando writes: "There is a reel master from early in The Eleven to the end of the show. Like the partial reel master of 6/5/69, though, there is terrible "scrape flutter" from the end of Doin That Rag through the end of Turn On Your Love Light." A composite of these two masters was assembled on PCM and put into circulation in '91.

The Eleven analyzes St. Stephen > 1st vocals 1:05 > transition Jam 2:00 > Eleven Jam 4:17 > Eleven vocals 0:40 > Eleven Jam 4:57 > Eleven 2nd theme Jam 1:58 > transition 0:24 > Sittin On Top Of The World.

Janis Joplin's vocals during Turn On Your Love Light are first heard at 4:20.

Most copies in circulation have a curious glitch, with Dark Star restarting after 12 seconds ; this derives from a Beta Hi-Fi copy of 1st gen reels circulating in the early 90s.
