Comments Total time 3:29:33+. Timings are from the AUD tape supplemented by the SBD. See Comments under 9/17/70 on the structure of this show.

Set 1 is acoustic Dead, probably the complete set. David Nelson plays mandolin on Deep Elem Blues, Rosalie McFall, Cold Jordan and Swing Low; Marmaduke sings bass harmony on Cold Jordan and Swing Low. Apparently Jerry plays piano on To Lay Me Down. He plays electric guitar on Cumberland and New Speedway. Tapes of this set circulate in two parts. Don't Ease through New Speedway circulates separately, sometimes mis-labeled "9/18/70". The last three acoustic tunes circulate with the 9/19/70 electric set AUD.

Set 2 is NRPS, probably the complete set.

Set 3 is electric Dead, the complete set. A ripe Dark Star, definitely, but the 17th is the first magnitude Star of the run. This is the Lovelight in which Bobby (at 10:45 or so) asks the immortal quesion "Pigpen, did you say 'fuck'?" Afterward, Pigpen dismisses the audience's cheering demand for an encore with the rhetorical question "Why don't you guys go home and fuck somebody!"

The SBD and FM-SBD contain Dark Star through Lovelight; the AUDs contain the entire list. See Comments under 9/18/70 on the SBDs of this run. Jack Toner and Marty Weinberg each mastered tapes of parts of this show. Composites also circulate.
