Note - Most timings above are listed as per

COMMENTS SET 1 is the acoustic soundcheck. *Phil toys with the opening
lines to Cumberland Blues among various other songs.

SET 2 is the opening acoustic Dead set. The end of El Paso, Brokedown
Palace tuning, Brokedown Palace, Uncle John's Band & the NRPS set
that followed (aka - SET 3), did not circulate as of (2/98)**.

SET 4 is a electric Dead set. Eyewitness & AUD recorder David Tamarkin
says this set definetly ends with Good Lovin'. ***Does not include Easy
Wind, which is not on Teddy GoodBear's copies.

SET 5 is another electric Dead set. The first 3:10 of the jam after
Alligator is just Jerry & the drummers; this jam involves allusions to
Not Fade Away, Goin Down The Road, The Other One and Caution, but never
settles into any steady riff despite the drummers energetic efforts to
herd it into Not Fade from 7:30 on -- when they finally do slip into it
by the back door at 10:39 the effect is explosive. The dovetail into
Goin Down The Road 3 minutes later is as deft; this song features the
additional verse "Mama told me son don't go down there." There are
Caution hints in the transition from Mountain jam back to Not Fade.

Pigpen's harmonica is prominent early in Caution -- the jamming here is
over the top, more than a match for any show ever -- the segue into
Lovelight takes it from a roar to a whisper to a roar in 3 seconds. It's
hard to believe they didn't play an encore, or two.

There is no SBD master of this show in the vault.

: cassette master > cassette copy > my reel copy
: at 3-3/4 ips > your dat except for the small portion
: during the acoustic set with the quality difference,
: Brokedown and part of El Paso from my cassette master
: > my reel copy at 3-3/4 ips > your dat.

Who was the taper for both? Were you the taper for the small portion
"cassette master"? And do you know what equipment you or he or they used?

: I don't know if i go along with the 8/17/70 assumption.
: I have that also, never realized it was the same. it could
: be capitol, came off one of those tapes and
: the guy didn't do any trading. The mystery continues...

Is there more to what you have listed as 8/17/70? Can you compare the 2?

I don't know the name of the guy who taped the bulk of that show, but he was
the infamous usher who's been mentioned for years. He did almost everyone who
played there but after a falling out with my friend, his brother in law, we
never got to dub most of his stash. What was gotten includes several dead, nrps,
janis, tuna, tull, allmans, delaney & bonnie, traffic & j.a. shows. He would
set up off the balcony with a mike spread. I have no idea what he used. that
small acoustic portion was mine on a panasonic portable, if memory serves.

What you have as 8/17/70 is the same as what i have. As i mentioned, it was on
one his tapes with no info. He didn't trade so we don't know where else it
could have been from.

hope this all helps.

Subject: 11/6/70

Hi folks, my name is Dave Tamarkin. For many years now I've been trying
to correct the base on the subject of 11/6/70 capitol, port chester. This
was my 1st show. I was already quite familiar with existing released lp's
of the dead. Anyway, I brought a recorder with me not knowing about things
like fresh  batteries and how long these guys really play, I only managed
to get a small part of the show. Many years later, I found out that my
friend's brother in law was the often mentioned mystery usher who may have
recorded some shows. He had a deal with the promoter to tape off the balcony
while tending to his job. His was the source for many good tapes from there,
including jethro tull, hot tuna, janis joplin, traffic and more. My copy of this
show has the acoustic brokedown palace, followed by ujb to close the set. Also,
if you listen closely, after good lovin, you hear a mention of a break to change
a string, if  memory serves. After the break, alligator follows. One show that
night! i walked in about 8:15 and left about 2. And yes, the nrps set does exist
on tape, at least from that night.

keep up the good work, DT
