Comments from the original uploader:

Thanks to Jeremy Poynton for the cdr

– Lovelight starts off and ends with brief vocals from Pigpen
– Alligator is more or less instrumental. You can hear some very faint vocals,
deep in the background.
– Jam has impromptu Alligator vocals from Pigpen at the start.
It later morphs into Caution.

There is some hiss, some tracks are worse than others but nothing to bad!

SHN’s created by Greg Hurwitt, phobos@quik.com. Notes on SHN creation:

I started with seed discs kindly supplied by Stu Hanson from the BUDD mailing list. Discs were ripped using EAC V0.9pb11 two times and checksums compared to insure perfect rip.

The following edits were then made using Cool Edit 2000:

– removed four light clicks at t8 5:29
– removed click at t9 2:13
– removed clicks at previous track boundaries

Tracks were split using CD Wave V1.62, and sector boundaries verified using shntool V1.01. SHN’s were created (with seek information embedded) using mkwACT V0.97b1.

The following flaws are present on this seed:

– t3 3:45, left channel dropped
– t3 6:58-7:04, right channel dropped
– t3 8:04, digi-static
– t5 0:01, digi-static
– t5 0:38-0:41, left channel dropped
– t8 0:23, very light digi-static
– t9 2:24, distortion
– t10 8:59, very light digi-static

(1) Jerry: “It should be loud because that’s the melody you know. It should be out over the others.”

(2) Jerry: “Let’s go over it a time or two and get the arrangement. Hey Pig, do you want to do two verses and then into that uh drum business?  Well let’s, let’s decide that because that, that’s uh…”  Phil: “Bring some more grub man.”  Jerry: “Ok that would be the stomp because…”

(3) How many verses do you want to go through on Lovelight?  I think two, two and then a drum thing. And then after, after the bridge come on back and start get back into Lovelight.  Play it man. And you’ll have to play organ too. Give us a signal then, at the end. At the end, go back into the regular bar solo. Go back into the regular again. Go back into a regular verse at the end and go ‘shine, shine, shine, let it shine’.

Notes from the original uploader:

Source #1: 7th gen cassette (stereo) was used for takes 2-14 (tracks 2 through 16).
Source #2: unknown gen cassette (mono) was used for takes 1 and 15 (tracks 1 and 17).
Source #2 was of lower quality, but had an extra take at the beginning and another at the end,
The take numbers are not spoken on the recording, but are listed for reference.

This was commonly traded on cassette, dated as “11/19/67”.  The 45 minute segment has never circulated in digital format till now, with the exception of take 6 which is part of:

gd1967-11-xx.sbd.studio.81259.flac16

as well as:

gd67-10-20.studio.poynton-sirmick.85631.sbeok.flac16

This Lovelight practice session is now labelled as gd67-xx-xx.  There are several reasons to conclude it was made before November 19, 1967 – in fact before August 5, 1967 (currently the earliest known live Lovelight):

– Most importantly, from the talking between takes it is clear they are working out the arrangement. Maybe this the first time they are playing it?

– Definitely only one drummer
– Pigpen sings it a bit differently; in fact he only sings the first verse, over and over.
– The band doesn’t have any backing vocals except the “let it shine” bit, which was dropped & never appears live.
– The guitar parts are much simpler – on 8/5/67 they’re a lot more complex & bouncy.
– They don’t have a transition after the first verse.  By 8/5/67 they have a smoother drum transition.
– Garcia doesn’t have his soloing down for this song at all, and doesn’t seem to have worked out any part other than the chords.

This is flac encoded & tagged version of shnid: 16744

complete as per Deadlists. My CD is a copy of the CD that is going around on
BUDD and elsewhere. I edited an overlap splice at 22:15 (there were about 10
seconds of overlap on the old copy) and appended the last 12:25 of Caution
starting at 24:40 of the entire suite, which
were missing on that copy, from an old but only slightly inferior sounding tape
courtesy of Uli Teute. — H.B. 01/02

note that although this tape has circulated with this date for decades,
1/27/67 is certainly the wrong date for this recording. In fact, these versions
of Morning Dew and New Potato Caboose appear on the 10/22/67 SBD recording.
