There’s noticeable crowd through a lot of the recording, though the music does overshadow it most of the time. I don’t think there’s too much up-front chatter. Any Dylan collector should find plenty of value in this, but perfectionists should probably skip it.

The sound quality likely changes slightly from time to time as I started out way back in the crowd, but gradually worked my way up as people filtered out early.

Free trade only. Never sell or profit from this recording in any way.

  • Hard to say if this is a new source;

probably same recording as LB-5012 based on similar clapping wavs at end of t9 with
channels swapped and inverted;
in comparison this is harsher with more hiss and that sounds less natural like noise
reduction was used; this does not have all the flaws on that one;

General Notes:

When the AUD source surfaced on bt.etree, I contacted Am-Dig to see about
putting the coloborative effort into editing a matrix of this incredible
show in Pittsburgh, PA. So a 5.1 and matrix will be available.

The FOB AUD is an excellent recording for ’79 and the SBD is balanced with
everyone in the mix. There is some slight phase mostly noticeable in the
first set, and it would appear the SBD source is slightly different for
the second set. Pitch-wise it appears the first set is a little slow whereas
the second set SBD is in pitch. The AUD is definately picking up the main
PA (as opposed to a “mouth” recording which is up close and catching the
stage/monitor mix) so the result is added ambience to an otherwise sterile
SBD. Luckily Charlie Miller’s redux of the SBD source recently helped alot
since there is much less hiss in this new SBD source.

This show is simply jammin’, featuring the first listed Gloria Jam
(11-9-79 is probably the first; 10-16-81 first time with vocals) and the
breakout of an emotional C.C. Rider. I also have never heard any other
version of Looks Like Rain with a “stormy” intro. The first set is tight
and energetic, a sign of things to come in a highly creative second set.

Since disc 3 was going to be short, I decided to make an excerpt matrix of
a show 10 days later that features a start from nothing Saint O. The
groovy Saint intro is very unique and well worth multiple listens.

12-1-79 Reviews from

  • “This is one of the classic shows from the 70’s and just an incredible jam
    all the way through. This one is a must for any collector.”
  • “I can only wonder how stoked the boys were to have Brent as the new guy…
    Gloria Jam smokes and that next “jam” is a completely different work of art.”
  • “This show stands out in the early Brent era as one of the best.
    He’s Gone>Gloria>CC Rider jam is about as exploratory as the band ever got
    in the post ’76 era. In fact, it is eerily ?reminiscent of the kinds of
    things the band was doing in ’73-74. The China>Rider, Rain to open the
    second set are dead on versions too.”

12-11-79 Reviews from

  • “That complete stop between Sailor > Saint and the sweet Saint beginning
    is one of the coolest moments I have ever heard from The Guyz. It is
    definitely a five star attraction. I played it over and over and over the
    other night because it was sooo unusual.”
  • “Just for the pause (complete stop) between Lost Sailor and the EXTREMELY
    juicy sweet beginning of St. of Circumstance – It is a must! I love this
    era of The Grateful Dead. Thick, mellow, alive and jazzy.”

This is an upgrade of the original Pittsburgh 1975 recording that sounded awful.

I did this because I was bored. The sounds is much better than the original. Enjoy!

BTW- I’m looking for an upgrade to my copy of the New Orleans 86′ SBD if anybody can help me. Thanks in advance.

There has been several requests for a FLAC16 version of this show. I hope I am not a sinner by offering this up. I merely wanted to make sure it could be accessed by more people. All thanks, credit, and praise goes to Sir Mick, and his anon. source! This is merely my transfer of it into the .flac16 realm. So, that additional lineage is listed above.

Here is a belated Christmas present for all those at Dime
who are Neil Young fans; Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !

Since I wasn’t at this show and therefore obviously did
NOT record it, this will be fairly short & sweet. I got
this tape in a trade about 17 years ago from somebody
close to the taper. This fine gentleman gave me the
following information about this recording:

The tape is an analog recording made on an inexpensive but
good-quality analog cassette recorder, mic and model unknown.
It was taped very close to the stage. There is very little
audience chatter but some crowd noise but at the music volume
this is not an issue. Surprisingly there is no distortion.
There are no problems with the tape. The taper seems to have
edited out most of the on-stage banter between songs if there
was any ; I’ve seen Neil several times and he’s not exactly a
chatterbox like Ian Anderson who should probably shut the hell
up and play more music (just my opinion, don’t get mad !). IMHO,
this is a vg plus to excellent minus recording leaning closer to ex-.
This one rivals the SQ of my last upload (NY & CH, Milwaukee, WI 1/24/1991)
but is not quite as good. I’ve been told that NY & CH shows from 1991
are fairly rare and good ones are really rare so if I were you,
I’D PICK THIS UP !!! I upped this for all the great people at Dime
who have enlarged my collection to the point of idiocy. If you like
Neil, you NEED this show. I’ll post a sample for those who need one
but believe me when I tell you, this show is worth having.
The usual: no buy, no sell, no mp3. Please seed as long as you
can. This will make a lot of people happy so Mr Natural sez
“Enjoy this while you can !!!” Have fun, don’t freak out and
savor the concert. Smoke ’em if you got ’em and give Uncle Neil
some again, just like last time……….
