Recording and or tape loss issues were repaired as best as possible on tracks 1, 2 and 4
Levels were adjusted in many places for reasons unclear as to why they happened originally.
There was a phase issue which has been fixed that exists on the analog tapes of this that have traded for years. A dramatic improvement is heard. This could have had to do with the direction of the stage mics, but nothing is known about how this was recorded. Shnid 11862 has a couple more seconds of Workin', no need to patch it in but it is the same "root recording". This sounds MUCH better. Working off of one image of Old and In the Way that clearly has Garcia in the left with Grisman, banjo and mandolin together, and in the right fiddle and guitar. We left the channels on this as the tape sounds. The channels on 11862 are opposite of this version. We feel this sounds correct and is likely historically accurate.

Jeff Knudsen has been an avid Jerry Garcia, Grateful Dead and San Francisco Sound music fan for over 40 years. From a letter to Dead Relix Magazine asking for help cultivating a tape collection, Jeff developed a relationship with Dick Latvala and many other tapers, building an enormous music collection. He also taped many Jerry Garcia shows at venerable institutions like the various Keystones. Jeff loved to share tapes in a twinkle of an eye. He was a key player in leaking the Betty Boards back in the day. A few years ago, he decided he should pass his collection on to someone who could properly archive and transfer. After a few years of offering it publicly, there were no takers. In 2018, Arizona LL members Jamie and Tom felt the Knudsen collection was too valuable to let go. After a flight so bumpy that we almost cried, and a great visit, albeit too short, with Jeff... 1200 lbs of tapes, gear and cds were lovingly packed at his Florida homestead. The next era of his beloved collection is summer camp for the tapes in the desert... an ongoing process of cataloging and transferring the contents to share. Born from decades of Jeff's passion for live music collecting and the archival efforts of many, it's an honor and a privilege to share the Knudsen Tapes with you. Enjoy!
