The way that this sounds is more faithfull to Bear's original mix than the Miller seed shnid 106883.


From Grateful Dead Guide (deadessays.blogspot.co.uk)

There was a dramatic shift in Bear's production technique by the 3/12/66 show.  He mentioned a  synesthetic experience of seeing music circulating: “My knowledge of the true nature of sound dates back  to…one of the rehearsals we had in the house in Watts, when I actually saw sound coming out of the  speakers. It was total synesthesia… It was just a unique experience. And it so completely blew my mind…I  went around and inspected it very carefully… And that became the foundation for all the sound work that  I’ve done.”
http://www.thebear.org/musicintro.html.

Whether it was due to this experience or not, sometime in February or early March, Bear changed the way  he mixed the Dead:  “I recorded the vocals in the left channel and the instruments in the right, Beatles  style.” That remains the basic premise in every Bear production setup from 3/12 through July.
