John Kahn - bass;
?? (?Paul Humphrey?) - drums;
Martin Fierro - horns.

- (1) with Maria Muldaur. The Jerry Site says this is Donna Jean Godchaux, but to my untrustworthy ears this sounds like Maria.  Speculations/corrections welcomed!
- The show is a little laconic and slightly disjointed, IMO.
- The recording is fairly hissy, hissier than the circulating copies of the late show from the same taper.
- Charlie Disalvo says this about taping these shows (DNC Garcia folder post by Sean Cribbs, April 3, 2002): "That machine was a bitch to run!" ... "I placed one mic in front of Jerry and the other one was passed down to total strangers in front of Martin Fierro. The stereo effect was amazing, almost like setting up in a studio. You can hear the drums go from the left to the right."
