"From Good Ole San Francisco, the Good Ole Grateful Dead". This is a very
interesting tape, recorded as the band was moving from the Live/Dead sound
to the Workingman's Dead sound. Note the C&W twang in Bob Weir's voice and
the alternative arrangements in some familiar songs. According to Deadlists,
Jerry plays pedal steel guitar on "Slewfoot" , on "Dire Wolf" (Weir on
vocals!) and on "Green Grass". Deadlists also shows "The Eleven", but I've
also seen this called "William Tell Jam". In any case, I didn't separate it
out from "St. Stephen" with a track marker.

I digitized this from a cassette which, as represented to me, was made by
Dick Latvala.

Apparently, the original recording of "Slewfoot" had the levels set too high
for the first several seconds of the song. On the cassette, this portion
didn't appear to be saturated, but did have higher levels than the rest of
the tape. This portion was captured separately from the rest of the tape,
then spliced together later. This explains the distorted sound at the
beginning even though the average level is the same throughout. The rest of
the song is in pretty good shape, but the subsequent songs sound much

There is some tape noise in "Dire Wolf", which is sung by Bob Weir. "Baby
Blue" has an internal cut, plus it is clipped at the end.

There is plenty of room at the end of disc 1 for filler. I used the
circulating 1-20-68 fragment, but there was insufficient space on this SHN
disc to include it.

"Ode to a Hard Core Taper" is approx. 3 minutes of 'tween song stuff, none
of which is very interesting. It ends with the first few seconds of "Dire
Wolf" to make reconnection easier, if you are so inclined.
