The Syndrome - November 27, 1970
November 27, 1970
The show opened with "Casey Jones," closed with "Lovelight," rest of order uncertain - list incomplete.
The band played Alligator that night. Right?
I have a hand writ list from way back that is my approximation of what was played. Someone said "They played Alligator right?' At the time I dont think I was too familiar with that. My notes do say that 'an instrumental tied together several of these songs' I think I took this as Cryptical Envelopment. The notes indicate Not Fade Away might have appeared further ahead [not together with Mona as said below.]

This show featured a really hot TURN ON YOUR LOVELIGHT. A contemporary review (Cincinnati Billboard 12/12/70) stated:
The group's fans started dancing and shouting from the first chords of "Casey Jones," and didn't slow down until the final shouts from vocalist Pigpen on "Turn On Your Lovelight," which one person aptly described as the "closest possible thing to Nirvana."
