Notes:According to the Jerry Site, this show circulates as an AUD recording.  
It's unlikely that this is that source.  The story of this tape:  George was a student at URI and went to the
show with two buddies and a guy named "Mark" who happened to have a car and the recording equipment,
but no ticket.  They parted ways outside the venue.  Only after the show did George discover that Mark had
scored a front row center ticket for face, and recorded the show.  George made his copy from that master tape,
and I met George in Furthur chat.
This recording is excellent in almost every way.  The taper was in the first row, and you can hear not only the
house sound, but also the sound directly from Jerry's guitar and John's bass.
Location, location, location.There are a few flaws.  The tape was stopped between some songs,
and it seems that Deep Elem and Goodnight Irene are missing (if the Jerry Site has it right, which it usually does).  
The start of each side of the cassette is marred by some tape flutter, etc. which evens out after a few moments.
It sounds like the taper picked up the deck a few times to check on the tape, too.  
Most of the tape hiss is now gone, but a little remains.  I restored the high end with the L3 Multimaximizer
and pulled out some of the bass but, like alot of these G&K audience recordings, there's a lot of low end in here.  
When Bird Song starts, the sound quality changes.  I can't tell why.Overall, I think his sounds great.  
Many thanks to George for the cassette, without which we would not be listening to this.Enjoy.

It was mentioned that this recording ran a bit fast, a couple cassette gens will do that, the discussed difference was
5.3% so I resampled to 32bit float 96khz, did a speed correction, some minor editing/smoothing of tape flips, flutter,
deck bumps, crossfades etc. minor eq as long as it didn't interupt the actual music. there seems to be a definite source
(change) at birdsong; smoothed out as much as possible; diff gen?

Jerry is Smokin! if stof doesn't send a chill up you're spine, check your pulse you must be dead!

another installment of tmnsp wharfrat chapter 2005      

thanks to Mark,George, & mgoldey for the source and of course Jerry and John for another fantastic show!  ~~
I did two downsamples from 32b96k if there is interest I will track & circulate the 24b48khz FLAC rjh
