General Notes:

When the AUD source surfaced on bt.etree, I contacted Am-Dig to see about
putting the coloborative effort into editing a matrix of this incredible
show in Pittsburgh, PA. So a 5.1 and matrix will be available.

The FOB AUD is an excellent recording for '79 and the SBD is balanced with
everyone in the mix.  There is some slight phase mostly noticeable in the
first set, and it would appear the SBD source is slightly different for
the second set.  Pitch-wise it appears the first set is a little slow whereas
the second set SBD is in pitch.  The AUD is definately picking up the main
PA (as opposed to a "mouth" recording which is up close and catching the
stage/monitor mix) so the result is added ambience to an otherwise sterile
SBD.  Luckily Charlie Miller's redux of the SBD source recently helped alot
since there is much less hiss in this new SBD source.

This show is simply jammin', featuring the first and only Gloria Jam
(10-16-81 first time with vocals) and the breakout of C.C. Rider.  I also
have never heard any other version of Looks Like Rain with a "stormy" intro.
The first set is tight and energetic, a sign of things to come in a highly
creative second set.

Since disc 3 was going to be short, I decided to make an excerpt matrix of
a show 10 days later that features a start from nothing Saint O.  The
groovy Saint intro is very unique and well worth multiple listens.

12-1-79 Reviews from

- "This is one of the classic shows from the 70's and just an incredible jam
   all the way through. This one is a must for any collector."

- "I can only wonder how stoked the boys were to have Brent as the new guy...
   Gloria Jam smokes and that next "jam" is a completely different work of art."

- "This show stands out in the early Brent era as one of the best.
   He's Gone>Gloria>CC Rider jam is about as exploratory as the band ever got
   in the post '76 era. In fact, it is eerily ?reminiscent of the kinds of
   things the band was doing in '73-74. The China>Rider, Rain to open the
   second set are dead on versions too."

12-11-79 Reviews from

- "That complete stop between Sailor > Saint and the sweet Saint beginning
   is one of the coolest moments I have ever heard from The Guyz. It is
   definitely a five star attraction. I played it over and over and over the
   other night because it was sooo unusual."

- "Just for the pause (complete stop) between Lost Sailor and the EXTREMELY
   juicy sweet beginning of St. of Circumstance - It is a must! I love this
   era of The Grateful Dead. Thick, mellow, alive and jazzy."
