Combination notes:
This is a classic show that deserves to be heard in its entirity.
By combining the 3 sources we come close. The late acoustic set is still
incomplete and chopped rather badly, but at this point nothing better
circulates. This is one of those shows that needs to find a home in
every Dead Head’s collection.

The Lee tape (shnid:23062) is the most complete and has the highest
sound quality of all circulating sources. I used all of this source
and combined it with the noted portions of the other two sources.

It was necessary to renumber the tracks of the two secondary sources.
Fortunately The Port Chester Resotration Project folks left space
in their tracking for the missing songs so that added tracks fit right in.
The renumbering may present a mild annoyance to those who wish to match up
ffp checksums to those stored in the data base.

Tagging notes:
Show information is embedded within the header of each flac file.
It will display on any player capable of directly playing flac
files. If converted to wav during processing, all tags will be
stripped, however audio data will remain unaffected. If you must
transcode to a lossy format, do so directly Flac > Lossy.
Use ffp to validate audio integrity.
Md5 values will change if tagging is altered.
B. Proctor 11-23-09

notes for shnid: 23062
This is the best sounding yet from the Ken & Judy Lee collection.
The late show has long been regarded as one the Dead’s finest, and to
hear it, in what is up till now the cleanest source available, is truly
awesome. There are four TDK 120 cassettes from this night, however we
have only three. Tape 1, 3 and 4. Tape 2 is missing. We will have to
fill in the puzzle as the pieces emerge. And this poses a problem. We
naturally want to bring you the complete show, but we have no idea when
the missing piece will be found, so it was decided to release what we
have. I included a text file for the missing sets in the torrent for the
sake of continuity. This will have to do until the last tape is found.
Noise Reduction was applied to the acoustic Dead set only. Some
deterioration on the master tape during 83968 (D1T05), and some other
small glitches, none of which should detract from enjoying this show.

The original audience master cassette was recorded on a Sony TC124 with
unknown Sony dynamic mics, spread approx. 25-30 ft. across the balcony,
by Ken & Judy Lee,. The cassette was baked, processed and transfered via
Tascam 122 MK-III > Lucid ADA1000 > Tascam CDRW 700 (CDR) by John Jay
Hance. Noise Reduction by Peter G. Audio extraction via Peak 3.2.1 on a
G4 Titanium Powerbook, Flac’d with xACT V 1.2 and seeded by BoldCaptain
via BitTorrent 3.2.2a.

It was a night that was filled with magic. The kind of night that legends
are made of. All of the elements were in place. The band was on, the
crowd was on, the energy was on, the tape was on. The X factor at a high.
Disc 1 opens with the Grateful Dead acoustic. This set has circulated
only as a fragment, a few songs that Mark Cohen, Judy’s brother and Ken’s
brother-in-law, had tacked on as filler to 4-4-71, sometime in 1976.
Though short, only 30 minutes, it set the mood for the night. The New
Riders of the Purple Sage take the stage as the sun is setting… No
ordinary evening, indeed. There is an electric set of the grateful dead
still to come, and thats only the early show. Unfortunately this electric
set has yet to be uncovered, along with the acoustic set from the late
show. The rest of the show is here, and what a show it is. There is
endless banter from the band, as they seem to REALLY be enjoying
themselves.The New Riders open the third disc with their second set for
the night. Garcia on pedal steel here, as well as the early show, and he
really shines. But the electric set from the Dead is the real payoff.
Open Not Fade Away, slow segue into Easy Wind, broken string banter into
Me & My Uncle. “Mickey needs to get his gong together, where gonna do
Dark Star..” What an understatement ! Dark Star into the second Attics
of the evening, back into Dark Star, into Sugar Magnolia, back into
Dark Star, St. Steven into China Cat – I Know You Rider. The crowd reels
in applause as the band exits the stage. They return for the encore, and
you can tell there is no hurry as they ease into Uncle Johns Band.
He’s come to take his children home…
But his children don’t want to leave. And they roar as the house lights
come up, and Joan Baez plays thru the PA. Judy Lee recalls, “There was
this energy in the air. We were all stunned at what we had just witnessed.
The lights were on. Everyone was standing, clapping, stomping and
yelling. Nobody was leaving. I looked at Ken, we knew it wasn’t over.
So I flipped the tape.” Several minutes of crowd chanting to the exit
music, turns into an eruption as the band, with members of the New Riders
re-emerge on the stage with acoustic guitars. The crowd quiets as they
tune and respectfully offer a prayer of Swing Low, Sweet Chariot. And
with that, they sent the disciples into the early morning…

To this Rob Berger adds:
Make no mistake about it, these NRPS sets are not those of an opening
act. The Riders in June of 1970 were not an offshoot of the Grateful
Dead, but rather a thread in the fabric of the trip. I think their music
speaks for itself on these recordings. I was fortunate to have grown up
in a neighboring town of Port Chester and the Howard Stein era concerts
at the Capitol Theatre were actually not legendary, but rather more of
a rock n roll rumor by the late 70’s. Unlike Bill Graham’s fabled
Fillmore East a mere 35 minutes away, a gig at Port Chester’s Capitol
Theatre was considered a fill-in date. Not high profile by any means.
But, as anyone who has seen a show at the Capitol at any point in time
can attest to, that room generates an energy that is truly charged and
special. Very East Coast. Rowdy, but attentive and knowledgeable. Shows
at the Capitol were all marked by a freedom of the artist to let loose
and take chances without being scrutinized by the New York City press
and jaded big city audience. Most groups really seemed to thrive off
the boisterous enthusiasm of the crowd. Between 1988 -1997 I was lucky
enough to have made a living promoting shows at, and managing the
Capitol Theatre. It blew my mind that the shows we were putting on were
so reminiscent of those tapes I remember. So full of energy and abandon.
In May of 1990 we hosted John Dawson and his Riders at the still standing
Capitol. Backstage over a corn cob pipe, Marmaduke shared with stage
manager Dave – O and me a wonderful story of how Howard Stein painted the
stage purple for their first gig there in that warm June of 1970 and how
the cops were ready for the Dead to come to town after they freely gave
out acid at their recent March gigs there. Enjoy the music, the memories,
and thank you Ken, Judy, John Jay, and all those who make the music go
round.

Ken & Judy Lee present the Port Chester Resurrection Project as a loving
tribute to Mark Cohen. A brother and friend to many in the community,
his spirit lives on through the music.

Background Notes:
In 1973 Bill Gadsden acquired several reels belonging to Buddy Miller,
among them were the three reels comprising the complete 9/20/70
Fillmore East show. which Bill digitized and circulated in 2000.
The ‘A’ side of this particular reel contains the portion of 9/20/70
from Big Boy Pete to the “undamaged” portion of Caution. The ‘B’ side
has an audience recording of a portion of Cold Rain and Snow through the
end of the 2/11/70 Late Show in the left channel and portions of 6/24/70
Late Show in the right channel. Bill remembers listening to 2/11/70 and
possibly 6/24/70 back in 1973 when compiling the complete 9/20/70 show,
but the reels remained shelved for over 30 years, until recently. It is
altogether possible that Buddy Miller taped the shows using his reel to
reel deck that took 5″ reels, but he does not remember. Until such time
as more details arise, the taper remains unknown. During the analog to
digital conversion, the single channel recording was dubbed, making it a
two channel mono recording.

Ken & Judy Lee Proudly Present:
The Port Chester Resurrection Project

PCRP#007NRPS-GD1970-11-8.shnf.torrent

This is a very special release from Ken and Judy Lee. It serves as a commemoration of Mark Cohen’s 2nd anniversary in heaven. Mark was a great friend, and a big part of the Dead community. And it is to him that this project is dedicated, and to whom we owe a huge debt of gratitude. If not for Mark’s love of music, and love of this band in particular, we would never have known about the Lees’ Port Chester archive. Aside from a few other
brave souls known to have taped shows at this fantastic venue, Ken and Judy’s work from the Capitol Theatre stands as the ultimate body of documentation. And if not for Mark’s insistence that these shows be “liberated”, much of what has previously circulated would never have been heard, and this show was one of his favorites.

This show is a keystone of the Grateful Dead, one of those shows that really gives you pause and makes you wonder. A show of firsts and lasts, when it was all said and done, it had laid to rest some old lexicons, and created a new set of criteria by which the band would be judged. This was truly one of the legendary Grateful Dead shows. The Dead had a way of continually redefining themselves in performance, and this show buries the sixties and propels them into the seventies (much like the benchmark show at Lewiston, Maine 9-6-80 redefined them for the Eighties).

This is the last official acoustic set of the 70’s. ( Other than, or But for one Besides an) improptu set in 1978, most of the songs performed acoustically would not see the light of day again untill the fall of 1980, when they were showcased at the 10 night run at the Warfield in San Francisco, and 8 nights at NY’s Radio City Music Hall. The final “Operator”, and “Wake Up Little Suzie”, Mystery Train > My Babe (only time played), New Orleans > Searchin’, Main Ten (last time played), all standout in this performance, and then like a dream, are gone. Around and Around (first time played), and a long stretch before you hear “Baby Blue” again. This release also includes the complete New Riders set, known to circulate only as a fragment.

MD5’s are separated out by band. Please note such that the files
named as gd1970-11-08d3 are actually Disc 4 of this entire set.

Technical Notes (from shnid=26975):
The original audience master cassettes (4 Ampex C361-90) were recorded
on a Sony TC124 with unknown dynamic mics, spread approx. 25-30 ft.
across the balcony, by Ken & Judy Lee,. The cassette tape was baked
and re-shelled, then transfered via Tascam 122 MK-III > Lucid ADA1000 >
Tascam DA30-II (DAT) > Tascam CDRW 700 (CDR) by John Jay Hance. Editing
by Peter G. via Soundforge. No noise reduction was applied. Audio
extraction and further editing via Peak 4.0, compressed to .shn with xACT
1.3, and seeded by BoldCaptain via Azureus 2.1. Tape flutter in Baby Blue,
and in Truckin’. Tape flip in Dancin’ In The Streets was was seemlessly
pieced together.

Remastering of shnid 28609 – disc 3
Using Adobe Audition,
-I repitched tracks 6-12 to match the rest of the show,
-I severely attenuated (by about 35 dB) the horrible booming resonance
centered at about 215 Hz, most objectionable during Good Lovin’.
-I moved the track marker for the beginning of NFA to match more closely
the change of source tape.

Only tracks 5-12 are different from 28609

http://db.etree.org/shninfo_detail.php?shnid=28609

Combination notes:
rbbert released shnid=94500 containing only the disc 3 tracks.
I dropped these tracks into shnid=28609 to replace the original tracks.

Tracking notes not having anything to do with the disc 3 upgrade:
This source came to me with duplicate files for disc 3. They were numbered
differently, so I checked st5 text and visually verified all trakcs were
in fact exact duplicates. I then deleted the additional files. This
situation was at some point prior corrected in the database.

From the original uploader.

JEMS could not be more thrilled to release this significant upgrade of the second show at the Capitol Theatre, one night removed from the historic radio broadcast that would go on to become one of, if not the most bootlegged recordings in Springsteen history, Piece De Resistance. In homage to that bootleg classic, we’ve titled the upgraded second night Douceur de Vivre, which translates to “the sweetness of life.”

And how sweet this set is, with a looser vibe than that of its predecessor and a few key set-list changes, including “It’s My Life,” the first “Santa Claus” since December 1975 and the rare-but-always-welcome coupling of “Incident on 57th Street” directly into “Rosalita.”

We’re fortunate to have many excellent recordings from Springsteen’s greatest tour, among them the five radio broadcasts (now including the upgraded Atlanta pre-FM JEMS released last year) and numerous other soundboard tapes such as those from Portland (June 24) and Charleston, WV (August 4). What makes Douceur de Vivre so special is that it, like the radio broadcast the night before, was professionally recorded on reel to reel by a mobile recording truck outside the theatre.

What we get is a live-as-it-happened recording of incredible clarity: If you ever wanted to learn the individual parts each band member is playing, this is the tape for you. Which isn’t to say that it is a multi-track, mixdown recording; this is a raw, mixed-on-the-fly, wide stereo recording done on 1/2 track at 15 inches per second. Compared to the cassette sources circulating of other raw board tapes from this tour, the quality here should be a revelation. A 24/96 edition will be forthcoming. Samples provided.

The transfer was handled as JEMS did for last year’s upgrade of The Ties That Bind so I’ll quote those notes: “There was baking involved, as the tapes had degraded in the [33 years that had passed]. This time, the reel-to-reel tape deck was best of breed, what the pros use, in a proper studio, calibrated and adjusted in every way for optimal playback and capture at 24/96 using the best possible sound card, cabling, etc.”

There are two missing pieces on the new reels, at the start of “Tenth Avenue Freeze-out” and the end of “Twist and Shout.” We’ve patched those from the video soundtrack. On the bright side, “Thunder Road,” “Jungleland” and “Incident on 57th Street” are all complete here unlike the circulating board tape.

Tagging notes:
Show information is embedded within the header of each flac file. It will display on any player capable of directly playing flac files. If converted to wav during processing, all tags will be stripped, however audio data will remain unaffected. If you must transcode to a lossy format, do so directly Flac > Lossy.Use st5 to validate audio integrity. Md5 values will change if tagging is altered.
Replay Gain has been applied to this show. Players unable to read replay gain tags will not be affected. If your player can read replay gain tags, make sure Album Gain is set as default.
To remove you can re-flac, ie. flac > wav > flac, but doing so will strip all tags.
