This is a collection of songs which (if the Deadhead’s Taping Compendium is to be believed) were to have formed
the basis for the first GD studio album of the 1990’s. The material appears to be a mix of live SBD recordings (possibly
with some minor overdubs) and rehearsals; its doubtful if any of this represents actuall studio recordings aimed at an
album release.

This came into circulation in mid-1997: several sources (including the Compendium) indicate that this was intentionally
put together – possibly by John Cutler and Phil Lesh – and seeded to trading circles to counteract several “last GD album”
bootlegs that had been produced in 1995/1996 (all sourced from 1990 thru 1995 SBD or AUD recordings.

The track listing is:

1. Lazy River Road (Garcia/Hunter) 6:01
2. Easy Answers (Hunter.Bralove/Weir/Welnick/Wasserman) 6:23
3. So Many Roads (Garcia/Hunter) 5:19
4. Wave To The Wind (Lesh/Hunter) 7:22
5. Eternity (Weir/Dixon) 7:20
6. The Days Between (Garcia/Hunter) 9:56
7. Way To Go Home (Welnick/Hunter/Bralove) 7:05
8. Corinna (Weir/Hart/Hunter) 9:33
9. Liberty (Garcia/Hunter) 6:00

Total Time 64.58

History and linage: Julian Fowler September 2003

I obtained a cassette copy in the autum of the 1997 from a tree run on the rec.music.gdead newsgroup. In spite of the
numerous efforts to locate anything with a lower number of analog generations, I’ve not been able to discover anything
better than what I have now; nor does this material seem to circulate among DAT users or (until Now) CD traders.

I’ve therefore taken my casette copy and transferred it to the digital domain. The best guess that I have for the annalog
lineage is as follows:

live/rehearsal recordings (DAT and/or ADAT) > ? > cassette > at least one cassette generation > my cassette

I did the transfer using an AIWA AD-F850 tape deck, played directly into the inputs of a Yamaha DS-XG sound card.
I used CoolEdit 2000 v1.1 to do the initial analog > digital sampling, apply mild noise reduction (my source tape is
somewhat hissy, not surprising give the number of analog generations) and reduce the length of some of the
between-song gaps. I used CD Wav v1.73 to define track boundaries and mkwACT v0.97 to prepare a master
SHN disc (track boundaries verified using SHNtool.)

——Julian Fowler September 2003

From Rolling Stone, Apr 20, 1998

Although it’s common knowledge that the Grateful Dead were in the midst of recording when Jerry Garcia died almost three
years ago, former keyboardist Vince Welnick shed more light on the unfinished album in a recent conversation with the Rolling
Stone Network.

According to Welnick, the album was set to include such tour-tested songs as “Liberty,” “So Many Roads,” “Days Between,”
“Samba in the Rain,” “Way To Go,” “Corrina,” and “Easy Answers,” but Garcia passed away before the tracks could be
completed. “We had just about finished the basics when Jerry checked out,” Welnick said. “It’s a shame, because we spent
a lot of time in there.”

Although the studio tapes from the Grateful Dead’s would-be swan song are still around, Welnick doubts that the album can
be salvaged. “There weren’t even working vocals on some of the songs. There was also very little guitar. If they wanted to make
something of it, they’d probably have to splice in something from one of the show tapes.”

Grateful Dead spokesman Dennis McNally denied that anything will ever come of the album.
“Only [Grateful Dead guitarist] Bobby [Weir] ever thought that anything could be done, but it can’t. Jerry didn’t contribute to it.
Everyone else contributed to it, but Jerry just wasn’t with it. There’s not even a title, to my knowledge.”

Comment: * with Dylan on keyboards & vocal. ^ Joan Osborne, lead vocals

Note(s):

1.) I cut approximately 30secs of tuning and snare drum hits from the beginning of set I so I could fit it all
on one 80min CD. I felt this was inconsequential, but if you would like this material, email me and
I’ll hook you up with it.

2.) There are fireworks at numerous time points. I did not correct for any of these “pops”.

3.) There was no optimal place to cut from disc 2 to disc 3. I liked the transition
from Drumz > Terrapin, so I preserved that.

4.) This particular set of FLACs is a re-transfer of my original source which was done via
an analog connection through a SBLive card. While I realize the UA-5 transfer is not bit-perfect,
it is a huge step up from my original source. Enjoy!

Personal Note (s):

My brief impressions:

This was a great show to have attended and my favorite of the year. As for the first set, The Playin’ > US Blues combo
was vibrant and alive as ever. Jimmy was on fire on this particular occasion. The Stagger Lee was fun, but Bobby forget
the words. I won’t comment on the Dylan as I don’t care too much for him, other than the Oh Boy was rockin’. Concerning
Dylan, future readers of this might want to know that taping Dylan during his own set on this tour was strictly prohibited.
His crew actually came back to the section to make sure our rigs were unplugged during his opening performances. He was
recorded every night regardless. The He’s Gone was moving, and I felt that Bobby did the song justice.
The Unbroken Chain…well listen for yourself.

Set II was simply amazing! Of particular interest was the WRS. This song shined, even if the LIG was somewhat
lacking with a drawn out jam and a mediocre final chorus. Now, the Terrapin > Morning Dew > Terrapin is perhaps
some of the best “The Dead” I have ever heard. Even though Phil sang it (adding that familiar Frankenstein-like effect),
the Terrapin was powerful. The transition into Morning Dew was subtle and I was F**kin glued to the music at this point!
Joan’s performance on this song was inspirational and touching. A lot of the old heads hated this, but I was
sincerely touched by this performance. The transition back into Terrapin was also subtle and not at all in your face.
To top it off, the Sugar Mag was fun and light-hearted, as needed after such a heavy run of jams.

Just my 2 Cents!

Notes:
Digitally remastered using a custom built, Dual-DAW, nicknamed Bertha,
by jashley@deadacated.com on September 2, 2002.

In June of 2003 I contemplated combining this source with the complete source
that circulates, however, the only sources available were multi-gen and of
such miserable quality, I chose to keep this as a single disc.
The cuts and drop-outs were edited to make them a bit more tolerable.
Enjoy!

note:
While this source is superior to the complete soundboard of this show
(shind=14989), the quality of the complete sound board is not anywhere
near as awful as Jay describes. The complete source is actually a satisfying
listening experience. This source is a nice addition as a first disc replacement.

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.
