call me crazy but this is either not from 1968 or it is the first time the Dead played Not Fade Away.
I'm guessing that it's not from '68.
|Like so many of their years, IMO the Dead's sound in '68 was distinct from other years, so you should be able to date it by year just by listening.

This is from Bear's Ampex C-90 Cm
my deadbase X does indeed have this liated as the 1st known NFA
I actually just got this show and it is definitely '68. Interesting NFA, they approached it with a brevity that has changed considerably since. This is surely one of the stranger dead shows....
Definitely John Cipollina playing guitar on d2t01-d2t03.
Possibly an additional musician on percussion as well.
|disc counts = 1/2
|Is this also the first known version of "The Main Ten"? Stellar jams on this one...
This was posted on a dnc thread by Charlie Miller: "6/19/68
From Mike Dolgushkin: The show that circulates as 6/19/68 is misdated. It's actually 2/19/69--the Celestial Synapse at the Fillmore West. I listened to it not long ago and thought "no way this is June of '68." It sounded real close in time to the Live Dead stuff, and you can hear TC poking out of the murk from time to time. Plus, it includes both Not Fade Away and The Main Ten, which started appearing on a more/less regular basis in April of '69.What clinched the date was reading the Rolling Stone review of the Celestial Synapse in the booklet that came with the Fillmore box set. It describes everybody in the Fillmore getting naked and crazy at about two in the morning, among them Don McCoy from Olompali, who took the stage and started rapping. Bill Graham had to keep the security people from pulling him off. Anyway, on this tape, after Lovelight, you hear a bunch of whooping and hollering, after which someone gets on stage and announces "Hi, my name's Don McCoy." Apparently the date that's written on the vault copy is hard to read; Dick originally thought it said 8/29/68. Another mystery solved. Tell your friends! "
More from TC about this being 2/16/69:
Sounds right to me. June of '68 was before my time.
Celestial Synapse should be easily enough confirmed.
Cheers and everything,
|If you listen to The Other One, you can tell that it is early 69. The song did not sound like that in June 68. It is much more developed on this recording...thus making 2/19/69 more likely the correct date.
|on 4/17/2011, the show for this shnid was changed from 6/19/68 to 2/19/69.
