--most of the cuts are a result of stopping the reel to save time/batteries, and are therefore very minor in most cases
--dropout @ 1:55 in Bobby McGee
--tape warble @ 6:05 in The Other One(1)
--tape damage(?) @ 6:39-6:50 in 2nd Other One
--tape warble @ 0:08 in 2nd Cryptical  
--Sound Forge was used for normalization, correction of the pitch, crossfades, and smoothing over troubled areas.  

This is a decent mono audience recording of seeming moderate distance from the source of music.   The microphone is often bumped or moved, causing some noise.   The crowd is relatively quiet.  

Deadlists comments:
This show is usually listed on tapes and in Deadbase as 8/24/71. But, according to Dwight Holmes the circulating aud tapes for this show were made by Stephen Wade, who says that he only taped the first show (8/23) and not the second (8/24). Additional evidence from Jeff Tiedrich also indicates that this is 8/23 and not 8/24.

05/11/2003 skrauss I attended this show and taped it from the audience. Sadly, my recorder malfunctioned and I only got 35:23 of The Other One suite (including the beginning of Cryptical), part of I Know You Rider, and Casey Jones. The latter two songs are not on J. Cotsman's setlist, but the Dead played them.
03/20/2008 charlie miller This is mostly from the 23rd, but the there are some songs from the 24th. There are also a bunch of songs missing.
