! 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.

! R: seeder notes: "Late show is seamless. There were a ton of snaps and 'thud' sounds I cleaned up (some remain). Thanks to Frank Streeter for lending me his masters. Thanks to Joe B. Jones for his help with the pitch correction."

! R: JGMF rename for sets 2/23/2014.

! context: A quartet version of this band debuted January 22-23. That was JGB #12a. The second keyboardist (Jimmy Warren on electric piano), arrived for five more local shows in two weeks, and then the band took off on tour. Garcia was nothing if not insistent that his players jump in with both feet, deep end. Three consecutive nights (Warner in DC on the 4th, Lehigh University on the 5th, the Tower in Philly on the 6th, now two shows in Boston. It's not surprising that I don't feel boatloads of energy (which could also reflect my own state of mind, as much as the players'). Note that at least five tapers walked home with recordings this night. I have not A-B'd them, and don't expect to have time to do so, but one never knows.

! P: On this listen (2/23/2014), the shows don't do much for me.

! P: a-t03 CJ some very interesting guitar work. Fanning over 9-min mark. Nice.

! P: a-t05 LAR at end a woman gives a great big "Thank you, Jerry!" This song always had a nice feel of connection Jerry and the audience, as in that early '89 show.

! a-t08 (1) JG: "Thanks a lot. See ya later."

! P: a-t08 TUIB PA screech late 4-min mark.

! b1-t05 (2) JG: "We're gonna take a break for a little while, we'll be back in a coupla minutes."

! b2-t05 (3) JG: "Thanks a lot. See ya."
