-This audience recording is marginal at best, but does reproduce a super show (not just because it was my first Dead show!) that should be of interest to collectors.
-The recording has undergone some DSP that includes EQ and NR (I found a
nice piece of hiss to formulate a decent sample). Even though its still hissy, it was very hissy before the NR.
-Most of the tracks in Set 2 are cut at their end.
-The show occurred in the dead cold of Mid-West winter, and started late as the crowd waited over an hour outside for the doors to open. To compensate, the Dead played a lively and energetic show–“The winter was so hard and cold”. Donna was absent.
-The show occurred in the Main Theatre of the Masonic Temple, one of the finest public halls in the United States, having a seating capacity of about 4,500 that produced a very intimate contact between audience and stage. The decorative treatment of the auditorium has considerable detail adapted from the Venetian Gothic, and the general tone is gold which has been enlivened with red and blue to produce a quiet richness of color seldom attempted in this type of work. A great deal of careful
study was given to the acoustical treatment of this room which has produced an auditorium where the hearing qualities are perfect from every seat. This is the only time the Grateful Dead played this theatre.
-Thanks to Teri “RamblinRose” for the source SHNs.

Now we can listen to the musicians !!!

I wait for your opinion but the only Trane solo I’m sure of is
in Track 1 from 2’30 to 5’30.

John Coltrane tenor sax
Joe Henderson tenor sax
Joe Brazil alto sax
Unknown Ten on track 01
Sonny ‘Red’ Kyner alto sax
Hugh Lawson piano
Erni Farrow bass
Roy Brooks drums

Private tape recorded by Joe Brazil

  1. Untitled blues jam, ending with Now’s the Time (19:41)
  2. Woody’n You (8:10)
  3. Paul’s Pal (13:12)
  4. Sweet Georgia Brown (12:34)

The coltrane reference provides the following analysis of the contents

After each tune there are a few seconds of talking and practising;
on 1 solos are:
Sonny red Kyner (alto)
Probably Joe Brazil
Donald Towns (Tr)
Unknown Ten
Joe Henderson

on 2 Coltrane does not solo;
on 3 Joe Henderson solos first, followed by Coltrane and
on 4 Coltrane solos first followed by Henderson, and it is at a very fast tempo.

Joe Henderson found a copy of this tape in his basement in his house
in San Francisco on September 28, 1991, the day Miles Davis died.
There’s a pic of Joe H with the cassette tape of this jam in Fuji.

  • Thank you. This is a ballad I wrote a few years back, a love ballad about three people in love. (before Tangled Up In Blue)
  • Thank you, we’ll take a short break here. We’ll be right back. This is a song I recorded a few years back with The Band.
    Remember The Band? This is off our album called Planet Waves. Sold 3 copies. So, we’ll see you in a while. (before Going, Going, Gone)
  • Thank you. This is a new song I wrote, called Am I Your Stepchild.
  • Thank you. That was Masters Of War, that was Billy Cross on lead guitar.
  • Thank you. On the drums tonight, please give him a warm hand, from Kingston, Jamaica, Ian Wallace. All right, on the bass guitar, Mr. Jerry Scheff.
    On the keyboards, Alan Pasqua. The one and only Alan Pasqua. On the lead electric guitar, the very dangerous, Mr. Billy Cross. He’s the oldest member of this group.
    On the rhythm guitar, the man who doesn’t speak a word of English. Ladies and gentlemen, from Tombstone, Arizona, Mr. Steve Soles.
    On the mandolin and the violin. The youngest member of this group, he’s fifteen years old. Been with me five years. Doesn’t smoke dope, drink whiskey, or go out with women.
    He’s pure musician, David Mansfield. On the tenor saxophone, the phenomenal Steve Douglas. On the backup vocals tonight. On the left, my cousin, Jo Ann Harris.
    On the other side, my current girlfriend, Carolyn Dennis. And in the middle, my ex-girlfriend, Helena Springs. On the conga drums, from Detroit, the amazing Miss Bobbye Hall.
    All right, this is called, It’s Alright Ma, I’m Only Bleeding.
  • Thank you. We’re gonna get out now. Anyway, we’ll see you next time. This song I also recorded with The Band. I wrote it a few years back for one of my babies. (before Forever Young)
