Last year when Ratdog came to Orlando he was kind enough to take his picture with me and answered a couple of questions I asked about the San Fran Acid Tests in late 65 and 66. Cool stuff
    I remember when I read Wolfe's The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Tests and he was talking about the Warlocks and "a skinny kid named Jerry Garcia." Classic stuff.

    Interesting/sad tangent: My father was (and still is) a huge Ken Kesey/One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest fan. When it was announced that Kesey's son died in that motorcycle crash, my father went to the trouble to track down Ken Kesey's number and to call Kesey to express how profoundly saddened my father was by the news. Now, this seems like an afterthought today, but at the time, given the nature of directory assistance and long distance calling, this was quite an accomplishment.

    I love reading Cuckoo's Nest. As good as the movie is--and the movie is brilliant--it really does not do the book justice. I really love the parts where you can tell Kesey's "inspiration" is kicking in (i.e., the elevator ride down to the furnace).

    Have a Grate Day, bro! Feel free to BBM me if you need anything!

    Nice with your Father going through all that to express his condolences. Yeah I relate with the hassle it used to be with getting phone numbers, directions, etc. We are spoiled with these Blackberry's but its great. Like the innuendo with the Kesey reference. Nice. I haven't had the chance yet to download the 83 show you put up, Mrs and I are on Cocoa beach. I'm working....working on my swimming skills, working on my tan and you got me on a 71 kick from last night. Listening to 2/18/71. The Playin in the Band is so virgin. No extended jam, no Donna, its a completely different song. Oh it also has a nice Star, Wharf Rat, back to Star sandwich.

    Comments:
    *First public performance.
    - d2t08: Reel flip at 04:48 of "Saint Stephen" crossfaded.
    - Approximately 1:39 were removed from the lengthy dead space/tuning preceding "Loser" allowing the entire first set to fit on a single 80 minute disc, while keeping in Bob's "Second oldest ritual" comment... that's a fact....
    - Intermittent faint audible artifacts/pops were attenuated using manual pencil redraw under high magnification. These were retrospectively found on all other circulating recordings from this performance. They were most abundant at the beginning of "Dark Star" and also at the start of "Wharf Rat". There are a few spots still remaining in "Wharf Rat" that are just too embedded to get out - sounds like minor transient peak distortion.
    - The notorious broad-peaked high pitched whine centered 8000-8100 KHz range was removed using a digital paragraphic equalizer (Waves Q6) with 2 narrow/notch bands (Q set maximal @ 100, -12 dB) set at just under and over 8000K for the first reel and just under and over 8100KHz for the last 3 reels. Previously circulating sources either used a wider band filter or a noise reduction approach performed on low bit/sample rate files which yields suboptimal results. All processing on this transcription was performed at 24/96 resulting in a much smoother transparent sound.

    notes:
    - CD 1 was supplied from Marcello Gasperini´s MR>DAT source, which has much less analog
    crackling than Julian´s source (which supplies the rest of the show). The first notes
    of Cumberland have been repaired using Julian´s MR>R>R>D source and at @ 2:20, a glitch was removed.
    - the entire CD1 has been channel-switched to place the band members in their correct stage positions
    - false start to Around
    - very carefully reduced digital jitter @ 0:11 in Chinacat
    - missing Brown Eyed Women between Big River & Greatest Story
    - Brokedown Palace: moderate denoising & decrackling; channels swapped
    - dropout @ 1:24 in Eyes
    - GDTRFB clipped @ 6:38
    - NFA fade/cut repaired (there was an overlap either side of the cut,
    so it is repaired from within the recording)
    - Last 8.52 mins (part OMSN + USB) patched from SBD cassette

    Acoustic action this week! China Doll into Ripple, a rare treat!

    I'm surrounded by beautiful Fall foliage here in Michigan this time of year and it brought to mind this quite remarkable period of Dead shows. I will never forget when I saw the Dead open up sitting around and playing acoustic music. I loved those shows, and unfortunately there aren't a whole lot of soundboards of complete shows from that period that are out but this is one and I hope that you enjoy hearing it as much as I do.

    Yes the acoustic sets may not have as much variety as we'd like - but I really doubt that you can avoid having a smile as you listen to the boys chat between tunes or sing along as you listen to Ripple.. its a real pleasure for me and I hope you enjoy it as well..
