Editing Notes
-- No patch sources were used.
-- d1t09 - Cut at 6:32 of "Scarlet Begonias" cross-faded.
-- d3t03 - Cut at 1:11 of "Truckin'" cross-faded.

-- d1t07 - Feedback burst at about 4:52 of "It Must Have Been The Roses".
-- d1t09 - Some mild to moderate feedback effects from about 2:38 to 3:20 of "Scarlet Begonias".
-- d1t09 - The end of "Scarlet Begonias" is missing from 6:31 on.
-- d2t01 - Low-level feedback in "China Cat Sunflower" begins to occur in conjunction with the start of Jerry's vocals. It starts to intensify around the 2:40 mark, culminating with a penetrating burst at about 2:53. The issues abate for the most part during the instrumental segment leading up to "I Know Your Rider".
-- d2t02 - Intermittent, fairly minor, feedback during the first half of "I Know You Rider".
-- d2t04 - More intermittent feedback - mild to very ringing - starting at about 0:20 of "Row Jimmy". It continues until around 3:00 or so, when it is finally squelched.
-- d3t03 - Music is missing starting at 1:11 of "Truckin'". Gap begins right at the end of the line "New York - got the ways and means", and includes most of Weir's next verse.
-- d3t03 - Just after the start of "Truckin'" it is possible to distinguish conversation with regards to the pending tape change - presumably between Rob Bertrando and one of his cohorts. As an exercise left to the listener, focus on the right stereo channel, at timing points 0:24, 0:30, 0:57 and 1:03, leading up to the cut-off at 1:11.

General Notes:

Two sources from the LMA provided coverage for this matrix: a relatively
dry SBD, and a pretty nice sounding FOB AUD recorded by strangers with
Jerry Moore's rig (see Jerry's notes). The result is an excellent matrix,
justifying the blending of two sources to breathe life back into a
relatively unrecognized but excellent show. Check out these reviews from
the Llama:

"I have the soundboard version of this show and I must admit that it is
clear but clinical. No Character. This audience version has the ambience
that is lacking in the soundboard. Do yourself a favor and download both!"

"You've heard the classics, now try this one! Recommended." -Dr. Flashback

This is the first show of 29 played at Capital Centre, and Bill Graham
starts off by letting the crowd know to stay out of the isles, probably
concerned with the fire marshall, who I'm sure was not impressed by
the firecrackers (M80s?) that were let off periodically during the show -
the most loud and notable is during To Lay Me Down, the crowd in a very
intimate space, an explosion even clearly loud on the SBD. Listener beware!

The whole show is played well, from the gumption of Sugaree through the
excellent Weather Report Suite (nice Keith); and the second set starts
with a slow but funky He's Gone (Phil), a freaky Spanish Jam out of the "space"
of a 1 verse Other One, and a rare Peggy-O (6th time played). Garcia takes
a different approach throughout, both refreshing and daring. The band delivers
on the crowd request for Casey Jones, and Phil sums it up at the end: "We
really appreciate it folks, you don't know how much."

Thanks to Jerry Moore for making the FOB AUD happen (see notes), Mark Cohen
for the analog > DAT transfer, Noah Weiner for the DAT > SHN/CD; Teddy Goodbear
for the SBD along with the rest of the Compendium crew, and Doug Johnson for
uploading it to abgd.

Excerpt from AUD text file:

(*) Notes from Jerry Moore - June, 2003:
"Had piss poor taping seats, and was unable to negotiate better
ones. Best I was able to do was dicker with some total strangers
who were sitting reasonably close, on the left side off the
floor, if I remember. They weren't willing to trade seats, but
WERE willing to try taping it themselves in exchange for a copy.
So I crossed my fingers real hard, and handed over the rig.
They weren't at all familiar with it, but I managed to squeeze
in before the show and check in a couple of times. All things
considered, they did a pretty decent job. Some artless level
juggling, and overall levels lower than I would've run, but
better than no tape or a rotten one. The taping the weird noise
at intermission was a nicety I didn't think to mention, and they
didn't bother with. IE, no L&L recording on my tapes... I haven't
the foggiest who they were or what their names were. Never crossed
paths again."

Somebody out there REALLY needs these shows

Some great July '74 shows to complement the May and June 74 vines. Sweet little Charlie Miller Cornell bonus too! Thanks to Sunshine Bob for the original seed and to Keith and Jake for the upgrades. By the way Zep, you win the award for the most package tape per DVD. Sucker was mummy wrapped!

Pass 'em on Zep!

Every time I turn around there is some fantastic vine I somehow missed. I feel so blessed sometimes, and (always) grateful for those who seed and tend these vines.
