- A fascinating nugget! The recording isn't pristine, but it is very nice. The performance is interesting and well worth your ear-time, IMO. I am not 100% sure about the players; someone with keener ears should probably listen for two drummers (or not), and I also hear a second guitar but cannot be trusted to be correct about that.
- d1t01 Knock on Wood fades in
- d1t05 help in identifying these numbers would be appreciated
- d1t06 help in identifying this funkalicious number would be appreciated. Solid!
- d2t02 Sweet Baby clips in
- d2t05 My Love For You has slide guitar @ ca. 6:57-8:16; spliced @ 8:16.

Matt Smith's Notes:
- Most of this recent circulating 'new' material came from the amazing Will Boswell/Pat Lee connection. A good portion of the 'stash' was recorded throughout 1979 with Will Boswell being the prinicipal dubber. As a result, I've had to (happily!!) comb through each one's reels to figure out who has what then take them home and get to work!! Some stuff from this stash was recorded for Pat by Will and the 8-30-75 being among one of these. Will does not have it but his handwriting is on the box. Lastly, a huge THANK YOU goes out to both Will Boswell and Pat Lee for being so kind and generous in allowing gems like these to surface!!! 2 Hall of Fame 'Deadheads' in which all of us under the age of 40 should especially raise a glass to!!!
