I was very excited to see the PCM seed for this show at etree back on 6-12-02.  
Unfortunately the etree seed was not a pure digital SBD.  There is obvious hiss
on the quite portions in between songs.  This was the first dat I got way back
1989 and was labeled as dat of cassette master.  I compared wavs from my dat to
the wavs from the etree PCM seed the sound and is almost identicle.  Fortunately
my tape had drums and space in their entirety and had no diginoise.  So I decided
to redo the show using my SBD dat and the etree audience seed for patching.  This
seed is the result.  My tape did suffer from most of the of the level drops in the
right channel the previous sbd seed had and I fixed them the same way by replacing
the right channel with the left in effect making those portions mono.  Dupree's
did not have the drop out the previous seed did.  I also made many patches whith
the audience recording they can be found on the following tracks.

d1t01        00:00.00    -->   00:10.70
d1t06        05:49.35    -->   06:42.18
d1t07        00:00.00    -->   00:01.23
d1t08        00:00.00    -->   00:12.81
             08:21.22    -->   09:36.53
d1t09        00:00.00    -->   00:03.20
             04.37.95    -->   05:11.23
d1t10        00:00.00    -->   00:16.60
             12:19.05    -->   12.30.66
d2t01        00:00.00    -->   00:52.23
d2t03        11:06.43    -->   11:51.66
d2t04        00:00.00    -->   00:03.42
d2t07        00:03.20    -->   00:29.94
d3t01        00:28.85    -->   00:31.20  

Please don't let all theses patches scare you off, most will go unnoticed.  This
is a great show!  I believe this is probably the best SBD version of this show
out there and is a definate up grade from the previous SBD seed because it is a
more complete SBD and also has patches.  If any one has a better copy please get
it out there.  I would love to get an even better version.  As always a big thanks
to my friend Bob Harrell for getting me both of the etree seeds Rob Eaton for
the SBD dat and for making the great audience recording.  No noise reduction of
any kind was used in the production of these discs.  Any questions or
comments please feel free to contact me at [email protected]

07/24/2004 Cal Virgil I was living in Scranton, PA at the time, working at a slaughterhouse of all places. John Ruby and I hung out alot, both of us having been into the Dead a few years. He cut frozen cube-shaped pieces of bad beef for Campbell's all day long on a band saw while I packed 50% soy 50% bad beef patties in boxes destined for nursing homes and the like.
The Dead were coming to Broome County Arena!
Just a 45-minute drive from Scranton--John couldn't make it, I didn't want to go alone. After work on 4/12/83, I got the urge to just wing it, without a ticket, and drive up I-81.
I got to Broome County Arena about 30 minutes before show time, and as soon as I got to the main entrance, some guy in the crowd yelled 'Ticket!', and I was in.
This show was unbelievable. First of all, the stage was only about 2 feet high, basically at ground level, and you could walk right up and almost touch the band members. Needless to say, I wormed my way up to the front and stayed there the whole show. I didn't even pee.
Garcia's voice was great, as was his playing, and the whole band was tighter than I ever saw them. The crowd went wild when they pulled out such gems as 'Wharf Rat', 'Let it Grow', the Blues for Allah classics 'Slipknot' and 'Help on the Way', and then 'Lost Sailor' and 'Terrapin'. Unbelievable sets, and I remember Garcia's hair hanging down, head bowed as he was jamming, a mere 10 feet from me. I wasn't even tripping, but I was tripping natural-like.
I will never forget that show. It still exists in timeless time-space,
really a magical show.
