SBD Master Cass>Sony D5>Cool Edit>CD Wave>SHN

Have all of early show and most of late show accustic.
Only mono recording because Dano and friend were able
to tap into a line feed until caught during late accustic
set where they had to stop abrubtly.

From Dan Cole's collection of JGB cassettes.
He was using a Sony D5 recorder at the
time to record his Master Cassette from the line feed.
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 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 rows.

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.."
