The only tune released from this date is “Brokedown Palace”, appearing on the electric sets release,
entitled “Dead Set”. Soundboards are fairly hard to come by, since they knew they would be recording
for compilation releases, and were very tight regarding both soundboards and, to some extent, auds.
There are many wonderful stories circulating as to the trials and tribulations tapers underwent to record
these two series, and we are all eternally “Grateful”!
The boys are very tight, very electric and very “determined”. The Scarlet/Fire jamb takes me to a place
I don’t think they ever took me to before. Ship Of Fools will make you cry…

From reviews of the acoustic matrix:
REVIEW: What a fantastic set…
I can’t believe nobody has enjoyed this show enough to write a review. dire wolf starts the set out strong
and then a soothing bird song and a beautiful ripple to close the night. China Doll stands out as well.
REVIEW: Love it!!
I just love this set, and the mix. I’m also a little surprised people haven’t discovered this little gem.
Thanks to all who were a part of it and made this possible.
This is a nice surprise. Who doesn’t like hearing monkey!? Jack-a-roe and dark hollow are really nice
here. This is really a nice acoustic gem.
Holy crap this is a great quality recording… and an awesome set! Personally love been all around this
world, especially since it is a rare find.
From reviews of the soundboard recording:
REVIEW: Great Sound
If you like the album ÃÂReckoningÃÂ download this show. The sound is awesome. WhereÃÂs the rest
of the show? IÃÂm jonesing. These Warfield shows are the sh*t.
A lovely transfer and a really nice accoustic set. Jerry encourages everyone to sing along as Ripple
begins, Weir later admonishes a howler after pointing out that Jerry wrote this one for his Mom. Good
REVIEW: A gem
Jerry is in good voice. Beautiful harmonies and great playing. Bird Song is great. A gem of a set.
From reviews of the audience recording:
REVIEW: This electric set smokes!
High energy renditions of amost everything. Good vocals, and Jerry is on. This compares well to 1977
gigs. The first set is also great. But listen to the soundboard version also available here.
Black Peter is Jerry’s favorite.
From reviews of the other audience recording:
REVIEW: music never stopped
go straight to MUSIC NEVER STOPPED for a quick fix of GD magic…..listened to this one on GD radio
during work one day…FUN FUN FUN
REVIEW: Junkie for love
This is extremely beautiful here. Look at the set.
Utterly head over heels for this 10-03 PRIMO set.
Thank you a million times for capturing and sharing this special run.
