Notes: The DAT was recorded from the WBAI Morning Dew radio program on 07/31/1999 during their JG birthday special. Pitch is correct on this recording (ID-18422 is approx 90 cents slow). There's some low end fuzziness, and other minor FM artifacts in the recording.

Jerry Garcia - banjo, vocals;
David Grisman - mandolin, vocals;
John Kahn - bass;
Peter Rowan - guitar, vocals;
Richard Greene - fiddle.

! I love that you can hear the band talking things over between tunes, though wish we could hear just a little bit better!
! t01. (1) DG: "We're gonna go to the races, folks."
! t05. DG sings a few verses of Til the End of the World Rolls Around
! t08. JG is singing echo refrain of "Panama Red" during chorus ... I don't remember hearing this.
! t08. (2) DG: "You folks sound like you're havin' a good time tonight."
! t09. JG's solo @ 2:15 of Lonesome LA Cowboy is just not very good.
! t10. (3) DG: "Here's a tune that may be familiar to most of you."
! t13. (4) DG: "We're gonna have a big gospel portion on our second set. That's what we're deciding right now. So stick around and get your r'l'gion. ... We're gonna take a short leave of absence ... right after this next song."

  1. I have recently connected various dots and discovered that 960 Bush Street was the address of a San Francisco recording studio called Coast Recorders. I was confused because the operation (Coast Recorders) moved to Mission Street when they took over Mercury Studios in 1969. I don't think that the Dead recorded at Coast, but the Charlatans and others did.

    I know that Coast was in the basement of the building, and I recall that the Boarding House was on a lower floor, possibly underground, but I don't know if they were literally the same place.
