The following info from Deadlists:

The tape in circulation was edited, probably off 1st generation cassette
copies of the master reels, possibly onto DAT.  There are splices before and
after Mama Tried, Next Time, and Good Lovin, and songs are probably missing
in these gaps.

According to DeadBase IX they played Hard To Handle and Casey Jones after
Morning Dew; Me & My Uncle and Cold Rain & Snow after Mama Tried; and High
Time after Next Time You See Me.

It is impossible to tell from the circulating tape whether this show had one
Dead set or two.  If there were two sets probably Good Lovin concluded the

Known flaws:

On the circulating tape the Uncle John's jam breaks off, cutting back to
Dark Star at 1:45; 20 seconds to 2 minutes of jamming must be lost here.

Missing Me & My Uncle, Cold Rain & Snow and High Time which are listed in

Editing Notes:

This show was originally received by me on CD-R with a presumed lineage of Master Reel >
DAT > CD-R. Deadlists however, lists the show as having a probable cassette generation
prior to the transfer to DAT. (See above).

Like 11.08.69, there was a constant repetitive audible clicking in the left channel
which was quite noticeable during the quiet and low passages throughout the show. I
wanted to clean up the audio as much as possible by reducing or eliminating the clicking
but not at the expense of the quality of the existing audio. Noise reduction was not an
option, as the unanimous experience and opinion of most folks who have tried it indicate
that the resulting artifacts result in worse problems than what's attempted to be
corrected in the first place. I decided to try a noise filtering tool available in Cool
Edit Pro and Cool Edit 2000 which analyses audio samples and actually filters out clicks
and pops under a variety of settings. After experimenting around with a few different
available levels and settings within the program, I was able to apply the filtering tool
to the quiet and low passages on each wave form for the tracks comprising the show and
either eliminate entirely or reduce the loud audible clicking to a barely audible few light
intermittent ticks here and there. I used the filtering very sparingly, as for a majority
of the show, the clicking was not a problem due to the audio remaining at a level which was
loud enough for it not to be heard. I did find though that if the filtering was applied
beyond a certain point or with one too many passes on a specific audio passage, that the
audio would be negatively affected. So basically, this procedure was done carefully and
sparingly without compromising the integrity of the underlying audio. After editing, a
few very light nearly inaudible ticks are present on a few soft passages, but all of the  
initial audible clicking has essentially been eliminated.

Additionally, the track ID's were in error throughout much of the show, so I ran the .wav
files through CD WAV and split the tracks at the appropriate places. This was done prior to
the noise filter edit described above. I burned an audio copy of the show after the track ID
editing was completed but before the noise filtering editing was applied. Accordingly,
if anyone else out there wants to try their hand at this on an unedited copy, I have one
available. Anyway, I'm pleased with the results of the noise filter editing and find the
result to be quite a significant improvement over the original unedited version of this show.

This is also the most complete version of this show that I'm aware of as it includes Hard to
Handle, Casey Jones and the COMPLETE uncut Turn On Your Lovelight patched in from an alternate SBD
source, none of which are included in earlier more commonly circulating versions of the show.
