Comments Generally only the first 45 minutes of this set circulate -- omitting the Turn On Your Love Light (which features the acid ravings of Ken Babbs). There is a cut in Stephen on all circulating copies at about 1:25 ; most of the song is missing. After Mama Tried they segue into High Time but break off after 0:23 with Jerry saying, in a incredulous psychedelicized voice, "You want it *louder*?" Afterward there is an extensive pause for technical difficulties and stoned confusion. There is also a partial video of this set in circulation and boy do they looked loaded -- only Billy is still capable of keeping his cool.
