*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.

This is a rather ragged recording, and might only satisfy the
completists of collectors. All cuts are probably from the master, as
indicated at deadlists. Sound Forge was used to normalize, correct
the pitch, and for minor edits.

–most of Sittin’ On Top Of The World is missing
–several minutes are clipped off of Morning Dew
–the first few drum beats are clipped on BIODTL
–splice/large dropout in China Cat @ 3:34
–splice/large dropout in China Cat @ 4:40
–splice/large dropout in I Know You Rider @ 0:07
–most of I Know You Rider is cut off
–perhaps a minute or two is missing from the beginning of Dark Star
–Deadbase lists Uncle Johns as encore, though it is not listed at deadlists.

It seems possiblethat the rest of the show (Good Lovin’, Minglewood,
Cumberland, Uncle John’s according to DeadBase) is on the master.

Thanks to Harvey Lubar for the seed and Tony Cortazzo for supplying me with
a copy. Thanks to Chuckles for instigational services.

t01 – Truckin’ is only a 00.45 second fragment with the DJ talking over
at the end.
t02 – Includes DJ intro during the first few seconds. Garcia’s vocals are
low in the mix throughout.
t03 – FM static @ 01:54. FM dropouts at 03:51 & 03:54 were removed leaving
a splice. Garcia’s vocals are low in the mix until roughly 03:10
where they return to full strength.
t04 – FM dropout at 0:02 was removed leaving a splice.
t05 – Garcia’s vocals partially dropout at 03:32.
t12 – FM static @ 04:03.

Entire disc was retracked with CDWave

As an overall note when I received this recording it contained a large number
of pops & clicks, plus some scattered level fluctuations. I used Cool Edit
2000 to individually fix a lot of these problems. No noise reduction or
processing was used! All fixes were done by individually repositioning the
waveform. All told I probably fixed more than 200 clicks so there were too
many to list in this file. I also normalized a few spots of over saturated
levels. In some cases I was not able to identify the problem within the
waveform so a number of anomalies, typical for a 35 year old FM recording,
still remain. However, I think the end result is an improvement over the
previous version.

1970/10/04 Winterland, San Francisco

There is no Grateful Dead music in this recording, but it seemed best to label it as a companion to the Dead’s show.
This is the radio broadcast of the set-break between the Dead’s and Airplane’s sets. The show was a quadraphonic broadcast (two radio stations and KQED-TV), and an unknown taper captured the intermission after the Dead’s show in this recording.
In the KSAN broadcast, KSAN DJ Dusty Street wanders around interviewing various people backstage at Winterland about the show, including Marmaduke and Pigpen. There’s some talk about the recording and broadcasting, and the experience at Winterland. Dusty finds out midway that Janis Joplin has just died.
In one channel (at lower volume) is the simultaneous KQED broadcast – you can hear some talking onstage and part of Pink Floyd’s Saucerful of Secrets album.
This copy is incomplete, it fades at the end as the Airplane are getting ready to go on. I don’t know whether the other set-breaks or music sets taped from this source still survive, but hopefully a more complete tape will emerge.

Lineage unknown.
Thanks to Barry Smith.
