MASTER FOB NAK 300's - 2nd row 2 seats right of center
FOB NAK 300's>Sony D5>Cool Edit>CD Wave>SHN

From Dan Cole's collection of JGB cassettes - he had it listed as
Master FOB NAK 300's and was using a Sony D5 recorder at the
time. I recorded directly from his master tape to my computer using
Cool Edit, divided the tracks using CD Wave and then converted
to SHN before recording my copy onto cd. Dan's tape had the
Ragged But Right at the end of the accustic set. This is
not listed on the Jerry Site and I've sent them an email
to see what they think. It fit into the tape so I believe they
did it that night maybe as an encore for the first accustic set.

Dan had this to say about recording this show
"JGB Lunt-Fontanne  Once again I headed to New York City without any
tickets. I was waiting online for tickets opening night when I noticed
a rather attractive lady walking out of the venue.  I approached her
and asked her if she knew if there were going to be any tickets on
sale.  She told me that she was a friend of Jerry's and that she
would be coming out with Jerry's unclaimed comp tickets before each
show.  I told her that I was in town for the duration and needed
tickets for each show.  She said she this wasn't a problem and that
she would give me first crack at any extras.  This was really cool
because every seat she had was either a box seat or in the first 3

The first nights stealth taping went real well, we had enough
people around us to conceal everything.  Jerry and the venue had
a no tolerance taping policy for these shows anticipating a future
album release.  We did notice about a dozen tapers get kicked out
the first night.

The Board Tapes

The theater had a sitting room downstairs that had speakers set
up.  I had noticed some tapers hanging out downstairs who had
spliced into the speaker wires.  They were sending the amplified
signals straight into their decks.  It was from these guys that the
10-17-87 tapes came from.

On the afternoon of the 21st I tried this method myself and walked
away with a pretty good tape.

The evening of the 21st we met up with the guys who made the tapes
from the 17th and we all patched together into the speaker wires.  
About 3/4 of the way through the first set we noticed Bill Graham
checking out  the speaker wires and headed directly for us.  I have
never seen so many tapers scramble so fast.  I grabbed my deck and
headed upstairs and started dancing with the crowd hanging out in
the back.

Meanwhile, the Goon Squad had grabbed my buddy Rob and were dragging
him upstairs towards the door to be kicked out.  This was rather sad
because it was Rob's Birthday.  I didn't see Rob again until the
second song of the second set.  He returned with an incredible story
about how had climbed up to a ventilation shute, slid down an air
shaft into the underground tunnels that connect the Broadway theaters.  He
went through a door into a hallway that led to Jerry's dressing room.  They
accidentally woke up a security guard who thought they had snuck in from the
show and he proceeded to escort them back into the theater.

Needless to say, the speakers downstairs were shut off for the remainder of
the Lunt-Fontanne run.."

Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band. Jerry Garcia, John Kahn, David Kemper, David
Nelson, Sandy Rothman

Distribution info:
Etree - no hits
Phishhook - no hits
Jerry Site does not have it listed as having a
recording source

From the above - I would say very limited distribution
of this show if any.

01/09/2004 jb IMO, this sounds considerably better than the mono board recordings from the "lounge speaker splice". This recording has a great feel, full bass, and relatively little crowd intrusion for a stealth recording. Kudos, Dan.
01/11/2004 Zeb I agree with the above comment - this is truly one sweet "stealth" recording!
