Notes from the original uplader: First off, I don’t know how this compares to the other copies that have circulated because I’ve never heard them. This is by no means perfect. There was some drama. The Weir set through the mid-point of Stop That Train, the mics were on a stand @ 7’ at which point, we got busted. We were lucky enough to hand security a blank tape so most of the set is salvaged. After they left, we started the rig back up and hand held from Like A Road until the end. I used “…” above to denote fades. Disc one and two are the affected discs. Disc three is pretty solid start to finish and worth the listen for sure. Killer Show! It sounds surprisingly upfront and present for lawn and barley any chatter during the Jerry sets.

As far as I know, only one recording of this show has ever surfaced. Several years ago I met the taper who kindly offered to loan me his master to copy. I have since transferred my 1st generation copy to CD-R. This isn’t a great sounding recording by any means. There is considerable noise caused by the hand-held microphone being moved around as well as the usual crowd noise. There is also a tape flip in the middle of “like a Hurricane”. This is doubly unfortunate since this is the performance that Neil played a portion on the piano. However, my copy is as good as anyone is ever going to hear of this show.
