The Story of This Soundboard:

This SBD comes from Vince Perrotti who gave it to Peter Hedeman with following notes:  "This was my 18th birthday and a friend of mine was allowed to patch in. He gave me the boards on the 18th. It was a great show, especially for those of us who made the trip up on 11.25.78 when Jerry fell ill."  Vince also mentioned that "I noticed as time went by that no one had these boards.  I know January '79 boards are rare and I caught 8 shows that month and they were all smoking."  So, thanks, Vince!  


I have no idea what EQ was done to the master cassette source.

The beginning of Shakedown Street is marred by soundboard glitches and adjustments.  At about 45 seconds, it finally gave out until 1:25 or so.  The 0:40 gap was patched with Source # 12200.  Another gap of about 1.8 seconds a 10:33 was patched with the same source.

A tape flip 9:16 into Eyes of the World was also patched with about 20 seconds of Source #12200, and the audience provides the last minute or two of NFA through the end of the show.  Several other glitches were smoothed over, adjusted, repaired or finegaled.  You won't notice them.

The audience is just a hair slower than the SBD.  I didn't alter the tempo of either recording, however.  The difference is really not noticeable when strung together this way, although the patch in Eyes is not great, but that's really because the cassette tape wasn't moving steadily yet.

The checksums for the tracks on disc 3 do not match those for Source # 12200.  Patching track by track introduces SBE's, you know?

12/09/2006 charlie miller This is actually a 3rd gen sbd. Read Vince's comments from LMA:

Reviewer: Vince325 - 5 out of 5 stars - May 1, 2005
Subject: Happy Birthday

When Jerry's illness cancelled this show in Nov 78, I couldn't believe the make up date. It was my 18th Birthday! What a fuckin asskickin show! Wanted Scarlet-Fire all the way up to New Haven and sure enough, got one! Every minute of this show was a great time. Maybe turning 18 at a Dead show makes it just a little "better"! I have 3rd Gen Boards of this show and would love to upload. They are a few glitches, but it's a solid recording. I got it as a gift about 2 weeks after the show.
09/25/2007 cool_breeze Disc two contains two versions of EOTW and no Drumz track. Since the second EOTW (d2t05) is twenty seconds longer than the first (d2t04), I assume the second EOTW is the patched version mentioned in the text file. In any event, Drumz is nowhere to be found -- Space follows the second EOTW.

For those of you keeping score at home, disc two is actually tracked like this:

d2t01 Scarlet Begonias >
d2t02 Fire On The Mountain
d2t03 Estimated Prophet >
d2t04 Eyes Of The World (original?)
d2t05 Eyes Of The World (patched?)
d2t06 Space >
