"The Eleven" and "Lovelight" appear on "Live Dead" - also: Sons Of Champlin; Initial Shock
Christopher Selden, since I was minus five when this show took place it is fair to say I was not there. However, I love the opener. Cryptical lasts for about 1 minute on my copy and then goes into drums and a powerful other one. I got this tape way back in college and I thought it was just my recording. I am now listening to GD radio and it is the same. I just love this version of The Other One, very psychedelic and Garcia is definitely exploring his talents on his guitar. Definitely a great show, I would of love to of been at the Avalon that evening.
