The tracking on this is screwball. The FLACs (and therefore the MP3s) are given track numbers that don’t always match up to what is listed here. I tried to fix them, but sometimes the artist names/song titles don’t match up either and after awhile I just gave up. The music is fine though – Mat

The source info, according to Ted: The Museum of TV & Radio in NYC dubbed his original reel-to-reel tape and a friend converted it to CDR.

Or, in more detailed fashion:

museum of tv & radio in nyc dubbed the original reel
to reel on to cassette for their listening archives
(museum of tv & radio in beverly hills also gets
copies).

a friend converted it to cdr also from the original
reel to reel (lost touch with him and never knew how
he converted analog to digital)

i recorded it at the kppc-fm 106.7 radio studio (at 99
south chester in pasadena, california near cal tech)
during the live broadcast on a scully tape deck (at
7.5 ips on quarter inch two track stereo 1.5 mil
acetate scotch audio tape); when the nrps song
louisiana lady was played on the scully tape deck in
the radio studio during the interview, the scotch
audio tape was moved to a similar scully tape deck in
the kppc-fm production studio down the hall to
continue taping the live broadcast; music played from
lps on turntables was scoped by stopping the tape
during the broadcast to make sure that the entire
interview would fit on our only blank tape available
at the time on a sunday afternoon.

notes:
The original taper(s) stopped the tape between most songs during the
acoustic set and some of the electric set. I have crossfaded the tracks
together to smooth the cuts and provide a generally more pleasant
listening experience. No music was lost (and no further tinkering was
attempted), although I have removed some crowd and a wee bit o’ tuning
to tighten things up and facilitate a two disc set. To accomplish this,
I decoded the original sources with xACT, lightly edited several tracks
in Peak LE 5.2, and did the crossfades in Jam 5. Encoding to FLAC was
done with Toast 7.1.2, compression level 6.

CDJones 1/17/2007

From the original sources:

Set 1:
Master Audience Cassette; Sony TC-124 with Sony Stereo Mic
Master cassettes played back on Nakamichi Dragon >
Digital Audio Labs Card Deluxe soundcard (96Mhz/24 bit)> HD
Editing performed in Adobe Audition; Dithered and downsampled
to 44.1 MHz / 16 bit;
Transfer and FLAC encoding by David Minches.

This is a very fine recording, especially of the acoustic set and
includes 4 songs that aren’t in circulation. The tape deck was paused
in between songs causing a “whooshing” sound which I partially edited
out. The first few notes of many of the songs are missing due to the
pausing but do not allow that to take away from the excellence of the
recording. There are other anomalies and cuts, some of which I had not
listed.

Set 2:
Notes:
–a quote from deadlists: “The Taper’s Compendium seriously misrepresents
the quality of this AUD master, and of the previous night’s.”

Sandy’s recollection:
“Jerry came in — it was my understanding that it was after a GD show. He sat up in the balcony with a couple of ladies and listened to probably about
half of our last set. (He had a Black Russian in front of him, a drink he would frequently order and not always finish.) I’d been up there talking
with them before the set; he said he’d come up and play. When we called him up, somebody produced a guitar, a Stratocaster (I think there was an amp
already on the stage), and he came up and played the rest of that set with us. A bluegrass picker from the Bay Area who was going to NYU at the time,
Tom Bekeny, also sat in (for all or part of the night), playing mandolin and some fiddle. Sean jammed with us on the last song; whether he’d played a solo
set earlier, I don’t recall. I’m pretty sure the original tape was made by the Lone Star’s bartender, name unknown, who held up a small cassette deck as soon
as he saw Garcia was going to play.”

Thanks to Mike for graciously transferring the tape and to Sandy for
information and context!
