Recording notes
* ~7:00 brief drop outs

/^ tape swap from tape 1 to 2
/^^tape swap from 2 to 1
Olvy had the idea that he wanted to record ALL of the drums and space so he decided to keep tape 1 side B in the deck to start set 2. Fortunate were we as many tapers had cuts.
A bit of tape hiss throughout, no dolby added some noise to these old tapes.

The Rochester Community War Memorial Auditorium was a venue the Dead played at several times. It was where I saw my second ever GD show, the one where I "got it" September 2, 1980. Thanks to Rick Cantor it was not my last! To return there with recording gear excited me to no end and as Rochester is about a 90 minute drive from Syracuse many of us made the trip. For some reason Tom and I were late but Olvy, Mike and others had set up in the sweet spot, about 65 feet from stage. The venue was all GA back then and the floor was covered with cheap fiberboard commonly in use to cover the ice of the hockey floor which was down as it was still hockey season for the minor league team The Rochester Americans. It was hot and stifling in the arena and we stayed as close to the floor as possible; I recall some folks laying down between sets to cool off.

The set list is classic 83 Dead. First Set Shakedown and Little Red Rooster were atypically lengthy versions while the Lazy Lightning > Supplication was inspired. Brent throws down some lyrics and organ action for Rooster to the delight of the crowd. While relatively short the set was satisfying with excellent highlights. Jerry's mic must have gone out at the start of Brown Eyed Women, Jerry and Phil play some sweet licks while it is out and the crowd gets revved up when the crew gets it back working.Brent added to the Stranger second set opener with smokey "crazy night" scat singing.Jerry delivered Ship Of Fools with dripping vocals and sweet guitar.Maybe You Know (on the tape case as: Baby You Know How I Feel) was the band putting up with Brent's need to sing originals which ultimately did wind up with 2-3 top notch tunes (Tons of Steel IMO); however this was not one of them. Still fun for this show and I think the 3rd on that East Coast run.

The He's Gone has some downright pretty vocal harmonies and is just a killer version. This morphs into this odd arrangement of Bob rapping now named Bobstar which according to deadbase was only played 3 times.We were able to record all of the drums and space following Olvy's tape flip maneuvers. The Throwing Stones had the early Jerry leads ending without the Bobby screams. The GDTRFB is one of my favorites ever; a copy of this tape saw a lot of rotation in my playback for several years.

This was one long second set, including encore it was 1 hour 45 minutes.
