Greg Elmore – drums
Unknown – congas, percussion

I’m not entirely sure where the first three tracks come from. The radio broadcast starts at track 4. It is possible the first three tracks are from the same recording but were not broadcast, but they may come from a completely different show.

Sent to me as one WAV file from Mauro’s tape collection. Split into separate tracks by DLT using Roxio. I converted and tagged the tracks using xACT.

Original WAV file was labeled 19710704 but I think it is actually 07/03/71.

-splice at 11:05 of The Other One, comes back in after rewinding about 3 seconds,
-Sugar Mag cuts at 4:09,
-King Bee, GSET>JB Goode & Good Lovin? seem to be patched from an inferior, more
hissy SBD source,
B+ quality at best

Thanks to Paul B. for hooking me up with these fine shows.

Note: A version of this show went into circulation in November, 2001
(http://db.etree.org/shninfo_detail.php?shnid=18458) as part of a
larger set put out by The Archival Group Tree marking the 30 year
anniversary of the closing of the Fillmore West. The lineages of
that set seem a bit suspect to the ear (plenty of hiss and lo-fi
quality for something saying it is from master reels), plus it was
a bit of a hack job in its assembly (large level discrepancies between
sources, SBEs at every track ID, etc..). That version also mentions
four missing songs at the opening. However, this new version provides
the Bill Graham intro running directly into the first song,
“Workingman’s Blues,” with no tape splice. So, this missing song
issue is debatable. This version here is sourced off of different
reels, and while the quality is not *A*, it may be found to be a
more enjoyable version of the show to the ear.

A few of the tracks from this date circulate (SBD) on the official
re-release of the Riders debut LP. The NRPS archivist, Rob
Bleetstein, has given permission for the safe on-line release of this
FM version of those songs (Feb 2005).

notes:
The original taper(s) stopped the tape between most songs during the
acoustic set and some of the electric set. I have crossfaded the tracks
together to smooth the cuts and provide a generally more pleasant
listening experience. No music was lost (and no further tinkering was
attempted), although I have removed some crowd and a wee bit o’ tuning
to tighten things up and facilitate a two disc set. To accomplish this,
I decoded the original sources with xACT, lightly edited several tracks
in Peak LE 5.2, and did the crossfades in Jam 5. Encoding to FLAC was
done with Toast 7.1.2, compression level 6.

CDJones 1/17/2007

From the original sources:

Set 1:
Master Audience Cassette; Sony TC-124 with Sony Stereo Mic
Master cassettes played back on Nakamichi Dragon >
Digital Audio Labs Card Deluxe soundcard (96Mhz/24 bit)> HD
Editing performed in Adobe Audition; Dithered and downsampled
to 44.1 MHz / 16 bit;
Transfer and FLAC encoding by David Minches.

This is a very fine recording, especially of the acoustic set and
includes 4 songs that aren’t in circulation. The tape deck was paused
in between songs causing a “whooshing” sound which I partially edited
out. The first few notes of many of the songs are missing due to the
pausing but do not allow that to take away from the excellence of the
recording. There are other anomalies and cuts, some of which I had not
listed.

Set 2:
Notes:
–a quote from deadlists: “The Taper’s Compendium seriously misrepresents
the quality of this AUD master, and of the previous night’s.”
