notes:
It is not clear to me that the master in this case is a cassette; it may be the PCM (VHS hi-fi)of the “Amy Boards” that circulate from spring ’85. In any case, this was the lineage noted, and the quality is very clean.

There is a stunning jam after China Doll, complete with tape flip at 11:42.

If anybody knows about a SBD of set 1, please get in touch. The first set of this show is excellent, and includes one of the most monstrous versions of “Candyman”
I’ve heard.

Thanks to Raoul, Duke of Bean, for the disks.

Note from the original uploader:
Given the huge difference in pitch between the two sets I strongly doubt if they’re
from the same source. I’m sure Set I has at least an extra C gen or two, also
because it’s not nearly as clear-sounding as set II. That said, it still sounds
decent, and not nearly as warbly once the pitch was corrected.

(missing) – Keep Your Day Job

notes:
-Alabama Getaway beginning cuts and the quality of the recording is a little rough, but
improves.
-The jam in Playing in the Band is spectacular and the original taper must have thought
so too, having broke it out as a separate jam on the tape cover, which I honored in the
transfer to CD. The jam actually extends 3 minutes into Drums.
-Two second cut in Drums at 6:22 (tape flip?)
-Jerry teases with the first few notes of St. Stephen during Space.
-Around and Around has small cut at 2:33.
-J.B. Goode end is cut and Day Job is missing.

Original seeders notes Feb. 2007:
I’ll apologize upfront for the lack of archival information of this source. I made a
cassette copy of this show when I was in college 20 some odd years ago from a cassette
of unknown generation. When I bought my first computer with a CD burner back in 1999 I
transferred the cassette recording to CD. Since I have never seen a SBD copy of this
show circulate over the years and no SBD seed is listed in the etree database, I
thought I’d post it for those interested (and just maybe a cleaner seed will surface as
result?). The recording has enough hiss, warble, pops, and clicks to make the pure
audiophile cringe, but don’t let it scare you – I was thrilled to get my hands on a SBD
of this quality 20+ years ago. It’s just easy to get spoiled by the quality that
circulates today.

As for the show itself, I’ve always felt that it was underrated. The setlist is fairly
typical of a tour opener, but the playing is crisp and clean throughout and the band
shows lots of energy. Nothing particularly stands out in the first set, but the band
is tight showing no signs of sloppiness. The China -> Rider has always been one of my
favorites. The Playin’ in the Band -> Drums -> Space is absolutely fantastic. I’ve
always felt the best Drums -> Space were played in 1985 and this show supports that
opinion. Great show for Brent, he really tears up the second set! For me, some shows
just emote the feeling the band is genuinely happy to be there and this show is one of
them.
