Original uploader’s notes:

Broadcast on KSAN. This recording came to me dated “??-??-73.” It contains songs that appear on the 1975 album Home Plate and the band here also played on 1977’s Sweet Forgiveness, so 1973 is almost certainly wrong.

There are several hints about the correct date. Bonnie Raitt says that Taj Mahal is played at the Boarding House (also in San Francisco) that night and that Chris Smither played at the same venue, which is “my favorite club,” about one year ago in February. Unfortunately, neither of those hints has helped me to find a definative date. Bonnie Raitt also says that “We just got off the road, we’ve been on the road since March 15, and, uh, went to England, had a [great?] time . . . and then spent the last 10 days w/ Little Feat, down through the Southeast . . . .” Finally, at the end of track 9, Bonnie Raitt mentions that there are other fans waiting outside to get into the venue, which suggests that this is an early show and that there was a second performance that night.

According to the liner notes on a Bonnie Raitt bootleg called “Collections” owned by a collector in Europe, this was recorded on 05.24.76 at the Great American Music Hall and broadcast on 05.26.76, (That bootleg contains two songs that are missing from this source: Women Be Wise and You Got To Know How.) So, that’s how I’ve dated this performance. If anyone knows for sure, please let the world know, too.

Mastering Notes:

The original DAT was quite noisy, though not really hissy like an analog tape. There are, here and there, tiny pops and ticks that sound very much like an LP playback, including a few rough boundaries where the recording tape started and stopped. There is also some distortion in the right channel at certain frequencies (check out the piano at the begining of My First Night Without You). None of this is very serious compared to the overall quality of the recording.

I believe that this is an LP > DAT or something similar, and the background noise is a line noise added by the stereo equipment. Whatever it was, I removed it using the X-noise plugin, which required relatively a lot of reduction (23.1 dB threshold, 85% reduction). As for pops and ticks, none of them are loud and you won’t notice them unless you’re listening to the spaces between songs.

The left channel was on average 3 dB louder than the right. I used the Waves L1-Ultramaximzer to balance the channels and increase headroom by 4 dB.

This was received by me in trade as a CD-R in the early 2000s as the ì1983-12-29 EARLY SHOW Great American Music Hall, San Francisco, Californiaî, which IT IS NOT, although the setlist does match what is (inaccurately) noted at and Vanomatic for the 1983-12-29 early show. The actual, verified 1983-12-29 EARLY SHOW can be downloaded here:
All the tracks flow into each other (no edits/cuts) with the exceptions of a brief gap/silence after Amazing Grace [Instrumental], Higher Than The World, and Summertime In England.
The total show time = 67:01. It is quite likely that John Allairís opening song ìGo To The High Place In Your Mindî is missing from this mystery show.
What makes me think that this show is from December 1983 is the inclusion of an instrumental version of ìAmazing Graceî, which is noted among collectors as having only been performed at San Franciscoís Great American Music Hall for 4 shows on 1983-12-28 and 1983-12-29 (see extensive notes below).
If anyone is able to definitively ID this show it would be greatly appreciated. Also, if anyone can share the 1983-12-28 early and late shows those would be most welcome!
