Comments Total time [2:28:20 +] SET 1 is acoustic Dead, and could well be the complete set. David Crosby plays 12-string guitar on Cumberland and New Speedway, and Jerry plays electric on these tunes. The best tapes of this set supplement the vault SBD of the acoustic set by patching in a truly excellent AUD which supplies Don't Ease, Cumberland and New Speedway. The AUD Don't Ease is patched in before Friend Of The Devil. After the SBD Deep Elem Blues there is a splice, followed by 0:04 from the beginning of a SBD version of New Speedway, followed by another splice, followed by the AUD Cumberland, another splice and then the AUD New Speedway. Besides these patches there is no other sign of this AUD tape in circulation. The AUD master is certainly good enough to be Bear's.

SET 2 is electric Dead. Before El Paso Jerry says "OK now here's where Weir gets his wish, at the expense of everybody." Most of Easy Wind is cut. There is a cut at 1:57 of the Good Lovin' Reprise, with considerable Jamming lost. David Crosby, NRPS, and Rubber Duck Company with Tom Constanten were also on the bill (DeadBase IX).

One [33:55] ; China Cat Sunflower [#0:28] > Jam [2:10] > I Know You Rider [4:17] > Candyman [6:43] ; [1:51] ; Turn On Your Lovelight [18:08] ; [0:08]
Comments This was the Bear's going away party. The SBD tape in circulation cuts in during China Cat Sunflower. Janis Joplin enters to cheers before Lovelight with "whadda you know that I know?" eliciting ribaldries from several band members (not the last). The only word for Janis & Pigpen's vocals on this tune is orgiastic. DeadBase IX lists Lovelight; Me And My Uncle; Cold Rain And Snow before China Cat Sunflower, and a second electric set: Casey Jones; Attics Of My Life; Cumberland Blues; Not Fade Away > Saint Stephen; Uncle John's Band. It seems probable that there's more of this in the vault. NRPS and Rubber Duck Company were also on the bill (DeadBase IX).
