Hey neddles, sorry to say, but the cut is what we get. I had recorded this one from the Deadhour years ago. David Gans comments at the end about the taping situation. All they have is Alligator coming in after the start then the mindblowing jam through the setlist with Dark Star cut right at the first chorus- sooo ouch! I love this peace of music. It got away from me (if you know what I mean- somebody's Crazy Fingers :D) a couple of years ago. I'd love to get it back. David Gans makes a classic comment at the end of the show, "This is a slightly over recorded piece of music, but perfection is not always possible with the Grateful Dead." And, yes, I believe this set is perfect in every sense. I wish I heard it live- not memorex.

sorry

Please delete all the Pure GD zen entries except the last. I was trying to post in the am, and after previewing my comment it wasn't confirming the post. I came back after work, edited a little, kept trying and continued to get the same result (an error indicator). Sorry for the mishap. There may be something wrong with comment posting. Glad to see it went through. This show rocks!!

I see from the bonus

I see from the bonus material on the new 2-14-68 release that Viola Lee Blues and Good Morning Little Schoolgirl were played at this show. Does anyone know the song order?

RTV2N2 bonus tracks

At a guess I'd say something like:

Viola Lee, Schoolgirl, [missing tracks, possibly a TIFTOO]> Clementine> New Potato Caboose> Born Cross-Eyed> Spanish Jam> Caution Jam> Dark Star

Of course, the Dark Star could have gone into a China Cat> Eleven> Lovelight sequence as well. It's such a hot show - the Viola Lee and Schoolgirl just make it better.

Anyone else have any ideas?

Eureka I was Born

It would be 16 years until I saw the Fat Man Rocks first in a roller rink on LI (How sweet it is) and then the boys at the Dome that fall, you say you want a revolution. Dark Star the day I was born, nice. Have listened to this often on the Archive - always have wished there was more.
