This is a flac encoded & tagged version of shnid: 17183

*Acoustic set through 1:50 of El Paso, entire electric set is MAC>C>D>CD>EAC>SHN,
from Ken Leigh’s master, recorded from the center loge with a Sony TC-110 cassette
deck with built-in microphone.

*Uncle John’s Band and NRPS set is MAC>C>R>D>CD>EAC>SHN, from Ken Leigh’s master

*From 1:50 of El Paso through 0:03 of Uncle John’s Band is MAC>R>D>CD>EAC>SHN,
from Dave Tamarkin’s master, recorded from the floor with a Sony Dictaphone

**Normalization, patches, EAC, SHN encoding by Jack Warner.

notes:
*There are some small master glitches ~1:30 of Black Peter.

*The Tamarkin master is fairly brutal, but it’s the only tape which supplies the end
of El Paso and Brokedown Palace. There is some serious tape warble on these tunes,
and there is some very bad tape crackle between songs, which I have removed where
possible without touching the music. Listener beware! For completists only.

*There is a master tape flip at 6:14 of All I Ever Wanted. Very little music seems
to be missing. I have smoothed the cut.

*There is a master glitch at 2:37 of Candyman.

*There are a few level fluctuations in Candyman.

*There is a master tape flip after Candyman. No music is missing.

*The Easy Wind which has circulated with this date has been determined to be from
July 10, 1970, and, as such, has not been included here. Based on the tapes,
it does not seem that Easy Wind was played this evening.

*There is a small master glitch at 4:03 of Drums following Good Lovin’.

*From Dave Tamarkin’s recollection, there is a broken string which accounts for the
break after Good Lovin’. The electric set was one long set, not two sets as it has
sometimes circulated in the past.

*There is a master tape flip at 7:30 of Lovelight. Very little music seems to be
missing. I have smoothed the cut.

THE CAPITOL THEATER SHOWS — NOV 5-8 1970

For this run of shows at the Capitol Theater Nov. 5-8 the Dead played a single concert each night from Thursday to Sunday. The Capitol Theater’s Village Voice ad for October 1 lists shows “featuring NRPS” at 8:00 PM on November 5th, 6th, 7th & 8th.

11/06/70 is another of the infamous “usher tapes.” Ken Lee worked at the Capitol Theater, and was able to set up to record at the balcony rail. Like 06/24/70 and 11/08/70, this tape is pretty sublime, all 1970 caveats considered. The room ambiance is quickly absorbed into your ear’s psyche, and before long you are feeling very much perched on the lip of the balcony, taking everything in.

Who was the taper for both? Were you the taper for the small portion
“cassette master”? And do you know what equipment you or he or they used?

I don’t know the name of the guy* who taped the bulk of that show, but he* was
the infamous usher* who’s been mentioned for years. He* did almost everyone who
played there but after a falling out with my friend, his* brother in law, we
never got to dub most of his stash. What was gotten includes several dead, nrps,
janis, tuna, tull, allmans, delaney & bonnie, traffic & j.a. shows. He* would
set up off the balcony with a mike spread. I have no idea what he* used. that
small acoustic portion was mine on a panasonic portable, if memory serves.

What you have as 8/17/70 is the same as what i have. As i mentioned, it was on
one his* tapes with no info. He* didn’t trade so we don’t know where else it
could have been from.

hope this all helps.
Dave

Hi folks, my name is Dave Tamarkin. For many years now I’ve been trying
to correct the base on the subject of 11/6/70 capitol, port chester. This
was my 1st show. I was already quite familiar with existing released lp’s
of the dead. Anyway, I brought a recorder with me not knowing about things
like fresh batteries and how long these guys really play, I only managed
to get a small part of the show. Many years later, I found out that my
friend’s brother in law* was the often mentioned mystery usher* who may have
recorded some shows. He* had a deal with the promoter to tape off the balcony
while tending to his job. His* was the source for many good tapes from there,
including jethro tull, hot tuna, janis joplin, traffic and more. My copy of this
show has the acoustic brokedown palace, followed by ujb to close the set. Also,
if you listen closely, after good lovin, you hear a mention of a break to change
a string, if memory serves. After the break, alligator follows. One show that
night! i walked in about 8:15 and left about 2. And yes, the nrps set does exist
on tape, at least from that night.

keep up the good work, DT

PS – Thanks Dave Tamarkin for getting me started with Dead tape trading around 1975/1976. I still have those very 1st cassettes from the Fillmore East you gave me back then!!! And it was good to see you again Dave when I was in Long Island after more then 15 years in the year 2000!

Teddy notes May 2011: *I’m not sure if I posted only MP3 files or both MP3 and SHN in May 2000? Shnid=3338 may very well be a decode from MP3>WAV>SHN for the 3/2001 to etree via Morgan Evans?
