This is weird. I have been slowly going through all the Amazon files I’ve uploaded over the last few years. I’m double checking everything to ensure I actually posted every show and then tagging them, updating photos when necessary, and sorting them into artists folders. I’m in the middle of that big Beatles comp I posted awhile back when suddenly this thing shows up. I originally uploaded it November of last year. I have the vaguest of memories of grabbing it from somewhere, but where I cannot remember. No idea why it suddenly popped up again.  I couldn’t find it posted anywhere so I think it should be new to everyone.

Whatever its a cool little Bob comp. It is mostly him playing solo acoustic. Sound quality is generally terrific. So if you love Bobby like I do grab this post haste. – Mat

These are solo acoustic references made with lyricist John Barlow, recorded at Bob’s Marin home during Fall of 1971. Sourced from pre-FM production CD made by David Gans for one of his KPFA Dead Marathon pledge drives a few years ago. Some of Weir’s most beloved songs in their embryonic stage. “C Shuffle” is an early development of “Walk In The Sunshine.” The unknown song is nice and is unique to these reference recordings.

Notes from the original uplader: First off, I don’t know how this compares to the other copies that have circulated because I’ve never heard them. This is by no means perfect. There was some drama. The Weir set through the mid-point of Stop That Train, the mics were on a stand @ 7’ at which point, we got busted. We were lucky enough to hand security a blank tape so most of the set is salvaged. After they left, we started the rig back up and hand held from Like A Road until the end. I used “…” above to denote fades. Disc one and two are the affected discs. Disc three is pretty solid start to finish and worth the listen for sure. Killer Show! It sounds surprisingly upfront and present for lawn and barley any chatter during the Jerry sets.
