[[[Note by Leigh Orf, who uploaded this show to I did
some very minor editing to this show, mostly putting tasteful fades
where there were cuts in the original. No NR whatsoever was applied! I
also removed the mysterious double-strum near the beginning of Don't
Ease Me In (sounded like a digital thing)...  Thanks again to the
aforementioned folks, plus David Finney for hunting the show down in its
best form... Leigh ]]]

(E) Cold Jordan (w/ NRPS)

This is the 2nd etree copy in circulation. It has one fewer tape
generations than the first copy, and it has the complete NRPS 2nd set.

From (some edits):

Early Show acoustic Dead set. On Cumberland and New Speedway David
Nelson joins in on acoustic guitar while Jerry shifts to electric. On
Cold Jordan Nelson switches to mandolin. Marmaduke adds harmony vocals
to the last three tunes. Pigpen plays organ on New Speedway. Early Show
NRPS set with Garcia, pedal steel. This is about half their set -- all
there is on the master. Before Last Lonely Eagle Marmaduke asks where's
"Bobby Ace" -- probably Weir was a guest vocalist later in the set.
electric Dead: Before St. Stephen Pigpen says "Alright you people, you
know who you are."

Enterprising Fillmore East stagecrew patched a reel-to-reel machine
underneath the stage into the PA feed and saved most of this show for
us and eternity. They were busy setting up for the Early Show electric
Dead set and blew their flip during the Early Show NRPS set, losing
the second half of that set as a result, but the rest of this enormous
evening's proceedings are recorded in their entirety. The master has
only the left channel through the middle of Candyman (there are also
splitter-generated 2-channel mono copies circulating). Around 4 hours of
this show were broadcast by KPFA-FM Berkeley in 1971, further speeding
the propagation of this tape (some early FM copies are dated "6/21/71;"
this may be the date of the broadcast). For many years 5/15/70 was THE
representative 1970 Dead tape -- Harpur College 5/2/70 and Winterland
10/4/70 its only rivals for wide circulation.

Late Show acoustic Dead: David Nelson plays mandolin on I Hear A Voice
Callin and Marmaduke adds bass vocals. Late Show NRPS set with Garcia,
pedal steel. Bob Weir guests on vocals for Mama Tried, Sawmill and Me
And My Uncle. There is a brief cut in Sawmill, with less than 10 seconds
lost. After this set the master contains 15:13 of continuing signal,
comprising parts of Side B of Abbey Road (playing on the PA during
the break) interspersed with the sounds of the stage being rigged --
drums nailed down, etc -- followed by the sounds of tuning up. SET 3
is electric Dead. Beat It On Down The Line gets 14 beats. There is a
cut 2:17 into St.  Stephen; probably around 60 - 90 seconds are missing
here. There is a cut 13:33 into Lovelight, but probably only a few
seconds are lost. Over the last year it has been rumored that there is
another SBD master of this show in the vault, which includes the rest
of the Early Show NRPS set (and which would probably allow us to patch
the few other glitches on the circulating master); however, nothing has
emerged besides rumors thus far. Meanwhile, we owe an enormous debt of
gratitude to those resourceful Fillmore East crewmembers who took the
bull by the horns and MADE TAPE. Muchas Garcias, guys.

12/25/2000 Dr. Dick An ansume show. one of the best. This shn is A+ in my opinion. A must get!!
04/22/2001 Andrew Smith Hi all. I just downloaded this show, and have yet to burn as something has
me perplexed. It is the version of 5-15-70 with the complete NRPS set, and
SBD>Master Reel>DAT lineage. On the info file however the sequence of Mama
Tried, Sawmill, M&MU, Connection occurs twice. The first is on disc three
following the Dead's late accoustic set. It then occurs again on disc 4 to
end the late NRPS set. Is this two different versions (which I doubt)? And
if not, is there a reason for it occuring twice on the recordings. The
first one also adds "1st copy" to describe it, so is that version perhaps
MR>DAT, instead of MR>Cass/2>DAT as the rest of the NRPS stuff is? Is any
of this intelligable?
01/01/2002 Dan K I recently downloaded this sweet show from gdlive. Note that the version on gdlive has a bad shn file for d1t03 (gd70-5-15D1T03.shn). The file fails md5 verification (both the md5 file on gdlive and this one on shncirc). I also get an premature EOF on compressed stream when converting this file to WAV. I've downloaded it a few times and the length checks out, so I think the gdlive file is bad. (This was one of the shows originally in "newshows" on 11/04/01 then lossed in the disc array crash and then restored apparently on 12/27/01.) If anyone can upload a good one, it would start my year off right!! Thanks.
03/13/2002 Chuck All files ofr this show on now pass the .md5 check.

08/09/2003 Matt To add to the confusion of the New Riders w/Weir repeated tracks is there's 11 songs listed in the txt. for disc 3 but only are 10 tracks (md5s also only show 10).
03/12/2004 Chuck Frolio On d3 Mama Tried and Sawmill are on the same track, which accounts for the difference between song titles count and md5 count.
