! Recording: symbols: % = recording discontinuity; / = clipped song; // = cut song; ... = fade in/out; # = truncated timing; [ ] = recorded event time. The recorded event time immediately after the song or item name is an attempt at getting the "real" time of the event. So, a timing of [x:xx] right after a song title is an attempt to say how long the song really was, as represented on this recording.
! TJS:
! db: (older, generated copy of same source tape[s]); (this fileset).
! R: MOTB Notes: "This is a compilation of 2 different sources.  Both sources may emanate from the same master but I would guess 2 masters were made.  Tracks 1 through 6 and the first 5:25 of track 7 are from source 1.  The cross fade in track 7 begins at 5:22.  Source 2 provides the remainder of the show. Speed correction by Joe B. Jones."
! Notes from shnid 17371 fileset (jjoops): "Amazing material!!! Essence of Legion of Mary -- nothing but pure, unadulterated instrumentals.  Among many, many highlights, I will simply note that this version of People Make the World Go 'Round is about five times longer than any of the many other versions in circulation.  It really takes the tune places you always thought it should have gone, but never seemed to.  I felt similarly at many points during this material."
! personnel: The MOTB info file lists this as Legion of Mary with Garcia, Saunders, Kahn, Fierro and Tutt. But the Generosity was Merl's gig, the band is probably Aunt Monk, and the personnel is probably different. [edit: Tony Saunders has confirmed that this is him playing bass and Bob Stellar playing drums and that the band is Aunt Monk.]
! personnel: d1t02 the descending bass line around 5:00 of LBOR doesn't sound like John Kahn to me. I am guessing it's Tony Saunders. [confirmed]
! d1t02 @ 9:27 JG hits his "Dancin' in the Streets" lick from the Dead's disco version of that song, ca. 1976-1979.
! R: d1t04 PFH splice @ 11:00, not much missing
! R: d1t05 noticeable warbling about a minute and a half in
! P: d2t01 this is not the best version of VITC. It's a little disjointed, laconic.
! personnel: d2t03 BORW: again, this bass sounds to me like Tony Saunders rather than John Kahn [confirmed].
! R: d2t03 end of BORW the hiss really comes up
! This probably isn't the complete show, since they are tuning up when the tape ends after Creepin'.
