One Friend Of The Devil [3:44] [0:16]
Two Workin' Man Blues [2:41] % [0:21]
Three Easy Wind [8:04]
Comments The three tunes listed here circulate with the 7/11/70 second AUD master but do not seem to belong to the 11th. Easy Wind is probably from the 9th; it differs from the versions circulating for the other nights of the run. The intro prefixed proves it an opener. Workin' Man Blues, which precedes it on the circulating tape, may therefore also belong to the 9th, but could come from the 10th or 12th. FOTD could be either the 9th or the 10th. SET 1 is from an acoustic Dead set, SET 2 from the NRPS set, possibly the opener, and SET 3 the opener of the electric Dead set.

David Ross recalls attending a show from this run, apparently the 9th. He remembers that among other songs they played "a Dire Wolf with Jerry on pedal steel guitar during one of the acoustic sets, and an Uncle John's Band... a Casey Jones, a Dark Star and a Morning Dew." His phrase, "one of the acoustic sets," probably reflects how difficult it was to tell the acoustic Dead sets from NRPS in 1970.

The four July 70 Fillmore East shows were "Midnight Shows." The concert started at midnight each night and consisted of an acoustic Dead set, a NRPS set, and an electric set. DeadBase IX gives this (obviously incomplete) list for the 9th: [acoustic] Silver Threads And Golden Needle; Cumberland Blues; Dire Wolf; Swing Low Sweet Chariot; [electric] Easy Wind; Casey Jones; Not Fade Away > Good Lovin'; Viola Lee Blues; Morning Dew; Sittin' On Top Of The World; Uncle John's Band.

Comments See Comments under 07/09/70 on the structure of this concert. The circulating tape seems to represent the complete electric set for this date; we are still missing the acoustic Dead and NRPS sets.

This tape is Marty Weinberg's master. It has long been in circulation mislabeled "Capitol Theater, Port Chester 6/24/70 Late Show" or sometimes "Early Show" and also sometimes "Capitol Theater, Port Chester 6/25/70 Late Show." Often copies have Around And Around from 11/8/70 and Oh Boy from 4/6/71 following Cosmic Charlie for filler on one side, and an unknown venue electric Big Railroad Blues from late 1970 for filler on the other side following Good Lovin'.

There are also at least 2 bogus tapes in circulation mislabeled "Fillmore East 7/10/70;" the more common bogus tape is actually from 4/12/70 (it starts with the Bill Graham Intro of Good Morning Little Schoolgirl: "If the Dead End Kids were alive today, they would be called "The Grateful Dead").

Comments Total time 3:23:37 +. See Comments under 07/09/70 on the structure of this show. This list and the timings are based on Kenny Schachat's AUD tape of the show; his mics were about 15 rows back in the center orchestra and the tapes are in the A minus range for the period. As often on masters from this period, tape pauses between nearly every tune ("to save batteries"). There are also copies of another master in circulation, containing the second half of the acoustic set, and nearly all the electric set with the sequence completely scrambled. Circulating copies are higher generation and it's difficult to tell how kind the master itself might sound. The New Minglewood Blues appearing at the end of Side A of the 1st cassette of the 2nd AUD master is actually filler from 7/10/70. Bart Wise says that R.T.Carlyle mastered one of the AUDs for this date, so perhaps this 2nd AUD master is his.

SET 1 is acoustic Dead. David Nelson plays mandolin on Rosalie McFall, A Voice From On High, Cold Jordan and Swing Low Sweet Chariot. Jerry plays electric guitar on New Speedway, but Bobby still acoustic. So Sad (To Watch Good Love Go Bad) is an Everly Brothers tune. Marmaduke contributes bass vocals to the gospel tunes.

SET 2 is NRPS with Garcia, pedal steel. This seems a little short to be the complete set, but at 2:00 AM apparently it was.

SET 3 is the electric Dead set, apparently complete. The Not Fade Away is expansively Jammed out. There are Mountain Jam allusions around 6:00 and for several minutes starting around 8:00 they weave The Other One in and out of Not Fade.

In the last couple years some people have argued that our tapes and lists for 7/11/70 and 7/12/70 are switched. As I see it the strongest evidence against this argument is that there are two different AUD masters in circulation, both generally labeled "7/11/70." It is for this reason that I believe our tapes and lists for these dates are correct as given here.

There is at least one bogus tape in circulation mislabeled with this venue & date.

Comments Total time 2:47:49. See Comments under 07/09/70 on the structure of this show. SET 1 is acoustic Dead, with David Nelson, mandolin, on Rosalie McFall & Tell It To Me. Jerry plays electric on Cumberland, Bobby is still acoustic. Probably this is not the complete acoustic set; likely it ended with some gospel tunes. SET 2 is most of the NRPS set. SET 3 is electric Dead. (1) Bobby Sells The Brooklyn Bridge. This tape leaves considerable to be desired, as far as audio fidelity goes, but you can hear the show pretty much, and it's the Grateful Dead for sure.

In the last couple years some people have argued that our tapes and lists for 7/11/70 and 7/12/70 are switched. As I see it the strongest evidence against this argument is that there are two different AUD masters in circulation, both generally labeled "7/11/70."
