Notes:
– Mono recording, hissy but basically very nice. The Jerry Site lists a soundboard, but I’d guess it’s an upfront audience recording. I don’t know anything else about the lineage.
– Track 1 banter (1) @ 0:10: “Hey Merl, you wanna do that tune in ‘G’? Get spaced out a little?”
– Track 2 banter (2) @ 0:30: JG: “What’s that?” MS: “I don’t know.” JG: “Hey, c’mon man, the orange one, now it’s the orange one, whatever that is. Amber. That one. Do away with it. That’s the exit light. It’s plenty. No, no, man. Thanks. Photo field [?].”

… this is part of the ‘Debbie Stash’ and the date listed was 9-1-72. this is mono but really clean sound and my guess would be this was a Betty Cantor recording on a Nagra …

disc 1 set 1:
01 It’s No Use
02 Expressway
03 time between songs
04 One Kind Favor
05 Sick and Tired **
06 Down Around Biloxi
07 That’s All Right, Mama
08 The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down

disck 2 set 2:
01 … // It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train To Cry
02 After // Midnight
03 Money Honey
04 Are You Lonely For Me Baby > Jam // …

notes from original uploader:

* I can’t confirm or disprove either date. however, since this version, explicitly marked as 9/1/72, is closer to the “source” than the other (which has many question marks in the lineage unlike this one), I assume 9/1/72 is the actual date for now
