! 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: not a great aud, but totally listenable, good room feel and the whole band pretty nicely balanced over low vocals.
! R: s1t01 HSII cuts in
! P: s1t03 Valerie some awesome, fulsome fanning late 4. Great stuff here late 5 as well. Very, very good.
! P: s1t04 LIR some real filth 3:20 ish. More big stuff 6:41, rock guitar.
! s1t07 (1) JG: inaudible set break announcement
! P: MITR the big extra turn he takes 8ff is very good, and the crowd expresses its appreciation. He is throwing himself lots of little curves here. Wailing 8:54, yeah. Big return to "all the things I plan to do" right over 9. Very energetic minute or two there. Not sure why the ladies don't back him on "there's some satisfaction | in the San Francisco rain" - later they would, and he could probably use the support already.
! P: s2t09 HTC Errico is such a big hitter. Band is bouncing right in the groove, crowd :50ish loves the vocals. This is a very high energy version, lots of good guitar work. I don't think Melvin steps forward enough - all Garcia, all the time.
! P: s2t10 MT I am not a huge fan of this tune, but the energy is pretty undeniable. GE hits *hard*. Melvin steps up for a nice feature 5ff, Garcia wails a huge note 5:53. Man, this thing is really on fire through 6, a mile a minute.
! P: s2t11 TNTDODD I have no idea why people cheer for this song. Because it's a Band song?
! P: s2t12 TUIB 2ff guitar work has been good all night, that was a good run. 3:12 John plonks a big old bass note. Vocals are low in the mix, but this is a nice roomy tape. Big giant note jumps out 4:20 and his next run fires things up even more. 4:48 GE some huge, giant high hat, loud! More loud early 5, the man hits like a linebacker. 5:30 band holds it out for him, Jerry strikes for another run, good interplay. Still cooking late 9. Man, there is some killer playing here, 10 min mark everyone must be banging their heads, the sweat must be flying. Right to 11 the titular reprise between Jerry and the ladies, to a nice close. Excellent version, though I am hard pressed to identify too many specific moments. Just lots of good music.
! s2t12 (2) JG: "See ya later."
