Comments: The is the complete radio show, though just the
last few seconds of Going To The Races appears on the tape
before a radio announcement. Before Wild Horses the announcer
says that O&ITW will be “at the Lion’s Share in San Anselmo,
tonight.” He also indicates that the beginning of Going To
the Races, the first song, wasn’t broadcast due to
technical difficulties.

Notes/Comments:
– This is pretty clearly a soundboard, and Grisman does a
station/program id at some point identifying this as from
WBAI’s “Morning Dew” program. Rob (Eaton?) and a DJ speak
at the very end of the segment. WBAI-FM broadcast this
material on 7/31/99. Beyond that, I don’t know if this is
pre- or post-f.m., nor what media might be involved along
the way. It sounds quite good, and this material is lots
of fun!

Thanks to Harry Angus for the source CDs!

Recorded by Betty Cantor-Jackson

Notes:

– This recording has been provided by an anonymous source.
– Various artifacts such as clicks, pops and crackle have been removed.
– A few small level adjustments and some minor repairs have been made.
– The only other circulating source for this show has both cassette and cdr gens in it.
It also seems that the channels became swapped over time.
– The other source has a cut in “The System” of approximately 1:37 starting around 1:36, this source does not.
– The other source has a cut in “It’s A Sin” of approximately 39 seconds from about 3:03, this source does not.
However, this source has the last 2:25 or so missing.
– Both Garcia’s guitar and Sarah’s vocals move around in the mix from time to time. *
– During the tuning breaks music can be heard playing, presumably bleeding through from a bar or something similar.
– All tracks have been tagged.

There is a very interesting article about the history of the venue here http://jerrygarciasbrokendownpalaces.blogspot.co.uk/2011/09/boarding-house-960-bush-st-san.html

Thank You Jerry Garcia, you will always be in our hearts.

Source note: This 1996 DAT improves on the 4492/9783 set.
4492 was found to be mono, and has clipped wav’s thru-out.
9783 appears to have been compressed, and L&R are flipped.
This source combines early & late shows into one file-set.

Patches were added to repair problems with the DAT source:
– High Heel Sneakers; 5:22, 6:13, 8:35, from ID-4492.
– I Was Made to Love Her; 0:52, 1:57, from ID-4492.
– Honey Chile; 9:20 > 10:11, from ID-4492.
– Like a Road; 10:11 > 10:50, from ID-4492.
– After Midnight; 3:19 > 3:54, from ID-9783.
– Go Climb a Mountain; 10:05 > 11:15, from ID-9783.

There are numerous small snap-crackle-n-pop events thru-out
the recording; fixed major pops with Wavelab, and left most
as-is, as these seem to be present on the MSR. Several cuts
at start of Dixie, 0:07 > 0:14, 0:30, and 0:39. Pops around
those cleaned-up and blank spots left as-is. Some sub-second
digi-zaps patched over with an alternate DAT source. Thanks
to Cbass for assistance with this project. Andrew F. 07/2009

(1) Sara Fulcher on lead vocals. Find A Rainbow has a substantial cut. Go Climb A Mountain has a 12 second splice presumably due to reel flips. The sound is greatly distorted for first 2 songs and partly distorted for songs 3 and 4 due to problems on the reels. This is one of the shows discovered in the Betty Cantor auction.

The tracks on disc one have been altered from the originals. I increased the levels, substantially in tracks 1, 2 and 3 and to a
lesser extent in tracks 4, 5 and 6. Several “pops” were also removed from tracks 3 and 4,using EAC’s Process Wave tool. Where there
was no music to recover, the original recording was left intact. This was done to make the first 2 tracks of this show listenable. I have
not touched any of the tracks for disc 2, as their condition as copied from the originalmaster was much better, than for disc 1.

The date of this show is in dispute.  See comments below.

My attempt at a setlist:

1. unknown (Garcia & Cage duet)
2. Runnin’ Back To You ( G&C no vocal)
3. unknown (G&C)
4. noodle (G&C)
5. Take Me Home Country Roads (G&C Marmaduke and others on vocals)
6. jazz riff (Cage)
7. Long Black Veil (G&C McDuke on vocals)
8. Anybody Goin’ To San Antone (G&C plus McDuke)
9. unknown (Jerry out? – he mentions having to get to hotel at the airport)
10. unknown
11. equipment fu
12. unknown
13. Seasons// (Weir on vocal)

From the original uploader:
Picked up something I haven’t seen elsewhere.
This single sbd CD features Jerry Garcia & Buddy Cage jamming and
noodling with a few Marmaduke vocals and a Weir vocal (Seasons).
Someone (Marmaduke) picks up a bass halfway through)
Very interesting artifact, not from the vault. Session runs until reel
runs out (47:30)

Here’s what I have on this:

Jam Session Info
Here’s the note from James that came with the show:
Now, to the other goody I sent you. Here’s the story on that. A friend of
mine who does sound and production work here in St. Louis was taking slide
guitar lessons and went through the archive of open reel tapes they had
there and found the one in question. He asked to borrow it and took it home
and did a 24 bit digital transfer from the mono 7″ open reel. This hasn’t
been heard by many more people than Brad, myself and a few others in 30
years!!! I was pretty damn excited about the discovery and glad that I was
only the second person that had heard it counting Brad after he mastered the
tape. As far as I know at this point it’s Jerry Garcia, Buddy Cage and other
members of NRPS. Other than that that’s all I know right now. The Grateful
Dead’s archives don’t even have this tape. Pretty fun stuff to listen too
even though it’s a lot of noodling and such. I kinda like it myself.
Everything was plugged straight into the open reel deck. So the source would be:
7″ mono open reel > 24 bit transfer > resample > CD-R
