Comments: Thanks to thejerrysite.com for additional lineage information. There was originally a splice with overlap in Tangled Up in Blue @ 01:34. Because of the overlap (presumably due to a cassette flip on a secondary analog generation), I was able to restore it to seamlessness using soundforge 5. Crowd noise between d2t02 and d2t03 missing – Let It Rock begins with a fade-in.

Thanks to K.Miller for the CDR source.

Notes: Same root source as ID-16694. Sorry, it’s only
partial, but this one doesn’t have the noise reduction
that was applied to that source, and sounds better.
Tape flip at start of Tangled Up. Also, the start of
Mission cuts in. THANKS to Jon Pasternak for this tape.

  1. This is a great show! Do you have the night before, 8/20? There’s a source out there, but it seems pretty scarce!! TY for the great blog. A little birdie just turned me onto it a couple days ago. Consider yourself bookmarked.

      1. No prob! Thanks for the reply on 8/20/81…
        Very cool story from about that show in the new Deadbase intros. When Playing Keystone, Jerry would walk from the back of the house through the crowd to get to the stage and leave that way when it was done. Gave everyone a chance to pat him on the back to wish him well pre-show, and again on his very sweaty back after it was over, in the hopes of grabbing a little bit of his magic.

        Amazing that JGB shows were still such intimate affairs as late as ’81.

  2. That’s very cool. Would have been awesome to see him back then.

    Interestingly you just helped me discover the 8/20 show.

    Thinking I didn’t have it I went to my source and downloaded it, except I accidentally downloaded the 8/21 show again. Realized the mistake when I was converting to MP3. From there I saw that I actually did have the 8/20 show in my archives, but filed away like I had blogged it before. But searching the site I see I haven’t blogged it before. So cool now it will get blogged and be filed correctly, so thanks.

    Its still gonna take a few days to get it up though.
