Recieved a copy of this from the “Unofficial Bob Dylan Free Tape Library”
quite a few years ago, and here’s what the website owner said regarding this

A very good audience recording of an outstanding performance. I’m a little
uneasy about the acuracy of the venue, though. The audience sounds receptive
and enthusiastic as one might expect from one of the four World Vision
International benifits at Civic Auditorium, Santa Monica that started a
couple of days later. Additionally, The set order doesn’t quite agree with
Bjorner’s Chronicles. However, Olof attributes No Man Righteous to the 15th
in his table so one has to question the accuracy of other entries.
Unfortunately, the tape is compromised by an abrupt clipping of the end of
In The Garden. Still well worth having, if only for the very rare (the only
other performance I’m aware of being on May 7th the following year) No Man

Regarding my suspicions as to the attributed venue, on 10/07/97 John D.
Baldwin wrote: “I think I have solved the mystery of the venue for the
gospel tape you provided for me through the library, dated by you 11/16/79.
It is indeed the last Warfield show, rather than one of the Santa Monica
shows. The clue is in Dylan’s rap prior to his performance of Solid Rock:
“They hold my records so long, you might hear [the song Solid Rock] a
month from now, maybe a year from now, but remember, whenever you do,
remember you heard it first right here.

“Now [illegible] San Francisco is a great town and you know there are a
lot of things wrong with it, but there are a lot of people here that we love.
And we’re gonna miss it, too!”

The beginning of the second comment is obscured by audience applause generated by the first comment, but he clearly utters the words “San Francisco.” Even if those words were inaudible, the remainder of his comment indicates that this is the final date of the Warfield residency. It would not be appropriate for Dylan to refer to “a lot of things wrong”
with a city like Santa Monica, and because he played in Santa Monica for only four days, it seems to me unlikely that he would make a big deal about missing the place at the end of such a short stay. (I’m assuming that the whole tape represents a single concert, which I have no reason to doubt, rather than performances from two or more dates edited together.)

As far as the enthusiasm of the crowd is concerned, Paul Williams in his book “Dylan – What Happened?” clearly states that the audiences at the Fox Warfield grew more and more enthusiastic as the residency went on (though Williams apparently did not catch this particular show). It is also very possible that many San Francisco-based “born-again people” found
out about the Dylan show, went on the last night to see what the fuss was about, and liked what they heard, although these people clearly do not
represent the entire audience.”
