The date of this show is in dispute.  See comments below.

My attempt at a setlist:

1. unknown (Garcia & Cage duet)
2. Runnin’ Back To You ( G&C no vocal)
3. unknown (G&C)
4. noodle (G&C)
5. Take Me Home Country Roads (G&C Marmaduke and others on vocals)
6. jazz riff (Cage)
7. Long Black Veil (G&C McDuke on vocals)
8. Anybody Goin’ To San Antone (G&C plus McDuke)
9. unknown (Jerry out? – he mentions having to get to hotel at the airport)
10. unknown
11. equipment fu
12. unknown
13. Seasons// (Weir on vocal)

From the original uploader:
Picked up something I haven’t seen elsewhere.
This single sbd CD features Jerry Garcia & Buddy Cage jamming and
noodling with a few Marmaduke vocals and a Weir vocal (Seasons).
Someone (Marmaduke) picks up a bass halfway through)
Very interesting artifact, not from the vault. Session runs until reel
runs out (47:30)

Here’s what I have on this:

Jam Session Info
Here’s the note from James that came with the show:
Now, to the other goody I sent you. Here’s the story on that. A friend of
mine who does sound and production work here in St. Louis was taking slide
guitar lessons and went through the archive of open reel tapes they had
there and found the one in question. He asked to borrow it and took it home
and did a 24 bit digital transfer from the mono 7″ open reel. This hasn’t
been heard by many more people than Brad, myself and a few others in 30
years!!! I was pretty damn excited about the discovery and glad that I was
only the second person that had heard it counting Brad after he mastered the
tape. As far as I know at this point it’s Jerry Garcia, Buddy Cage and other
members of NRPS. Other than that that’s all I know right now. The Grateful
Dead’s archives don’t even have this tape. Pretty fun stuff to listen too
even though it’s a lot of noodling and such. I kinda like it myself.
Everything was plugged straight into the open reel deck. So the source would be:
7″ mono open reel > 24 bit transfer > resample > CD-R

El Paso missing. It is listed in DeadLists, however, not sure if it is truly

Mexicali is not listed for this date, but is on my source tape and is
different than the 9/30 or 10/01 versions. I am assuming it’s from this date
until proven otherwise.

A>D transfer by Noah Weiner – June, 2003
from Jimmy Warburton’s 7″ Reel.

The recording is mono, and the left channel had a
great deal more hiss and noise than the right. Thus,
the right channel was copied over the left in Sound
Forge to produce a more clean and strong signal for
the final digital project. Also, throughout the reel
there are occasional static pops, fuzz, and crackles.

technical notes:
There is some occasional FM reception static/noise here
and there on the recording.

*first 11 seconds of “Rainbow” suffered a severe loss of
signal in the right channel. The left channel was blended
with the right to sonically smooth out this passage.

The very first notes of “Hello, Mary Lou” are missing.
The song fades in on the cassette that was transferred.
There is also a small cut/edit in the song like a pause
button was hit.

Comments:
*First public performance.
– d2t08: Reel flip at 04:48 of “Saint Stephen” crossfaded.
– Approximately 1:39 were removed from the lengthy dead space/tuning
preceding “Loser” allowing the entire first set to fit on a single
80 minute disc, while keeping in Bob’s “Second oldest ritual” comment
..that’s a fact….
– Intermittent faint audible artifacts/pops were attenuated using manual
pencil redraw under high magnification. These were retrospectively
found on all other circulating recordings from this performance.
They were most abundant at the beginning of “Dark Star” and also at the
start of “Wharf Rat”. There are a few spots still remaining in
“Wharf Rat” that are just too embedded to get out – sounds like minor
transient peak distortion.
– The notorious broad-peaked high pitched whine centered 8000-8100 KHz
range was removed using a digital paragraphic equalizer (Waves Q6)
with 2 narrow/notch bands (Q set maximal @ 100, -12 dB) set at just
under and over 8000K for the first reel and just under and over
8100KHz for the last 3 reels. Previously circulating sources either
used a wider band filter or a noise reduction approach performed on
low bit/sample rate files which yields suboptimal results. All
processing on this transcription was performed at 24/96 resulting in a
much smoother transparent sound.
