Does Garcia play on this? Of course I should have asked before I approved the .shns.
One other thing. There may have been multiple auds of this made, but it's doubtful. It seems highly likely that this is from Jerry Moore's master. In fact, Jerry confirmed that what originally circulated about six months ago (a cassette transfer by Dave Tamarkin, digital editing by Peter G.) was from a copy of his master. (The master itself was abandoned long ago, apparently.) So, if this is indeed from that source, it was taped by Jerry Moore, who has this to say:
"Taped it on a Sony 126 stereo portable cassette, with the mike that came with the machine. Stage was set up on a platform a few feet out in a lake, with the first 15 or 20 feet of shoreline fenced off for guests. The PA was just inside that fence. I knew one of the other bands, so I sat right in front of the stage, pointing the mike AT the stage. Unfortunately, this meant the PA was BEHIND me, and I was holding the mike wrong to begin with. The master sounded miserable, so I chucked it years ago, but obviously made at least one copy first. The clean-up on this one, IMO, was very successful. ... This would be my earliest surviving audience tape."
