From Deadists:
During the pause after Me & My Uncle, referring to the free concert the next day at Altamont Bobby says “Bear wants me to tell you to bring dope” and Jerry adds “Not only that but it’s something to do.”

Harry Ely mastered this AUD tape. He was a little fast on his pause button at this show. He clips several songs and pauses three times during drums. Otherwise, he made quite a decent audience tape for ’69 Dead.

Jerry introduces Dire Wolf saying “This is a song you can all sing along on “and as it turned out “Don’t murder me, I beg of you, don’t murder me” was a good refrain at Altamont. Jerry uses this intro the night before as well.

The longest China Cat > Rider bridge jam yet features a Caution tease from Phil among its divagations.

The Uncle John’s Jam is just a scrap from the song’s jam in 7s. Apparently the previous night was the song’s premier (there are Uncle John’s Jams on 11/7 and 11/8) but as far as we know they didn’t play the tune again till
12/12. Given this taper’s fast pause button finger, he’s quite capable of having clipped the transition from Uncle John’s jam into the Main Ten, but unless he ran into serious trouble it’s difficult to figure how he lost
nearly the whole of Uncle John in a flip (he had a flip coming, probably, after Dire Wolf). The evidence leaves it totally unclear whether they played the tune or just the jam.

This source is listed in the database as a soundboard and attributed to Jeff Cotsman. This is beyond doubt an audience source as listed in the text. I have remnamed the show file to correctly reflect it’s lineage.

The original text & Deadlists incorrectly lists an Eleven Jam > 2nd Other One in the first set. These two songs are not present, were not played and have been removed from the text listing. The Other One transitions directly into Cryptical reprise which transitions directly into Cosmic Charlie. How the additional songs got listed in the first place is a mystery to me. How no one has never corrected the listing before now is even stranger.
