Gloria's First Night Out?

LN jg1984-01-08.jgb.all.aud-CC.xxxxxx.flac2448

update: I now believe this is the first night out for Gloria Jones.

First show of 1984, Sunday night at 492 Broadway. This setlist differs from what we have traditionally from TJS. My notes don't reveal much. I think someone is asking about the personnel at note 1, but I can't quite make it out. I am trying to clean out my "to work on" soundfiles, so there might be a few more Closet Call posts and other randomalia.

! ACT1: Jerry Garcia Band #21b

! 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.

! venue:
! band: JGB #21b (THE Jerry Garcia Band):

! historical: first Garcia show of 1984.

! R: audience > 1st gen cassette (Maxell XLII90, no Dolby) Nakamichi BX-300 playback (Dolby off) > Pyle Pro cables > WaveTerminal 2496 > Samplitude 10.1 Download Version (record @ 24 bits/48kHz, normalization (98%, set II only) > CD Wave 1.98 (tracking) > Trader's Little Helper v2.4.1 (FLAC encoding) > foobar2000 (tagging).

! R: Quite a clean tape. Apparently as chick near tapers tells us about a minute in, "it sound[ed] so good!" in the room, too. This has a upfront feel to it. Vocals are a little low.

! s1t01 (1) audience member: "Who's in the band, Jerry? [unsure: "//new faces in five years"]

! P: Jerry's voice sounds relatively decent for this stage of the game. Things would deteriorate over the course of 1984. I imagine that the week-plus without playing (since GD 12/31/83) probably helped conserve the voice.

! s1t02 (2) guy with French accent talking just before Someday Baby

! setlist: TJS lists Tangled Up In Blue after LITA, and does not show RFTR or RIR. I don't know where the TUIB listing comes from. There is a splice after LITA, but it's extremely brief, almost as if the taper hit pause and unpaused immediately, as RFTR made itself heard. I can hear the same female crowd member (Chatty Cathy, I'll call her) on both sides of the splice. She is talking through the whole early part of the show.

! R: s2t01 Cats clips in

! P: s2t02 MITR some vocal clams as he makes the statement at the start.

! R: s2t03 Gomorrah clips in, just a couple of notes missing

! R: s2t04 TUOY cut @ 4:14, not much missing

! Disclaimer: This is part of a "Closet Call" project aimed at making missing Garcia dates available for study. These are "warts and all" ... straight transfers of the source cassettes with editing only of the most offensive tape transitions and such. If you don't like hiss, possible speed problems, etc., etc., then move along. And, to anticipate a FAQ: no, I don't plan on doing 16/44s of these. Thanks to wk for supplying these tapes!
