– A very nice aud, a little bit of fuzzy oversaturation, but very
nice. It is especially important as the only Garcia/Saunders show
from between July ’73 and January ’74 in digital circulation. There
are some tremendous performances of very rare songs here.
– The only edits undertaken were to smooth the tape flips after After
Midnight and Harder They Come.
– No flaws noted.

A Moore’s Masters Production.
