! R: nice recording, bass a little indistinct but the organ sounds great.
! P: Overall, I don't note much. It's good, but doesn't strike me as especially strong for the tour. Set I clocks in under the Garland/Minelli Line, and Jerry sounds a little out of it vocally. Cats wastes two minutes going round and round while Jerry appears to doze off.
! R: s1t01 ITAM clips in
! P: s1t01 ITAM Garcia bungles first words
! R: s1t05 RFTR splice @ start
! s1t05 (1) jg: "We're gonna take a short break. We'll be back in a few minutes."
! s2t01 CUTS cuts in
! P: s2t01 CUTS maybe the record for how many "Cats down under the stars" they do. C'mon, man, wake up!
! s2t02 RIR is very good in absolute terms, not sure how it compares for the tour or the year.
! s2t03 DP guy near taper totally calls it.
! P: s2t04 TUIB some vocal flubs. Longish TUIB for the period, it feels to me.
! s2t04 (2) JG: "Thanks a lot. See y'all later on."
