Comments In the pause after Mama Tried during technical difficulties Bobby proposes to "tell a story," and the tape breaks off. Jerry plays pedal steel guitar on Slewfoot and Silver Threads. The tape breaks off again during Me And My Uncle and the levels are bad when it resumes during Doin' That Rag and remain very low into Dire Wolf and punchy into Stephen. Bobby sings Dire Wolf. Crewmembers set off firecrackers sporadically during the set -- it being the 4th and all.
