Patching/CD Mastering by Scott Clugston
From Scott Clugston, I believe:
“As an attendee of this show, I can attest to the security force’s zeal when dealing with the taping
community on this night, hence the multiple audience sources used for patching. The taper with the
Nakamichi CM300’s was evidently “busted” towards the end of the 1st set and missed “The Music Never
Stopped” set closer entirely, necessitating the use of Sennheiser 441 audience source. This is a personal
favorite of mine and while this copy is not “just exactly perfect”, I don’t believe you’ll find a higher
quality, or more complete copy, anywhere. “

REVIEW: Phat !!
Yea I Was There. Just great all the way. The BEST Music Never Stopped EVER !!!!
REVIEW: Power first set
Had that long before the second set and always emjoyed that – dont care to much abt the sound issues
this was a great show and better than the Lafayette College show from ’79 in nearby Easton.
REVIEW: Wonderful Scarlet-Fire
Sound issues aside (and it’s not all that bad) this show has some outstanding moments of inventive and
exploratory jamming. Check out Brent’s punchy fills during a smoking Samson and the spot-on
transition from Scarlet to Fire. it’s preceded by one of my favorite out of Scarlet jams–one that’s not
afraid to go all over the place before landing down hard into a really really hot fire. Excuse Jerry the
usual mess-up on words in verse one and from there it’s a beauty. Enjoy!
REVIEW: 26 years later,man the DEAD were good!
Hey Now, Just found this show in “this day in history”. Wow, Friend of the Devil still can bring a tear to
a grown man’s eyes. I like the simple pace and Jerry vocals tell the story quiet well! The band plays out
the whole song,not just racing though it. Take a listen, these were days of Grate shows. still dancing, still
REVIEW: Not my first show
I was following the Dead since 1976. I was going to college in the Lehigh Valley and saw the show at
Lafayette (my first with Brent). This show rates among the top 5 (out of 100+ I have seen). I slept out for
tix and although not on the floor I was about 5 rows up on Jerry’s side of the stage. The energy of this
show was just awesome and this recording makes me remember why I always thought is=t was one of
the best I was at.
Definitely worth a listen..I’m giving this one a 3.5..Peggy-O and Music Never Stopped were very nice in
the 1st set..and the Scarlet>Fire stands out in the 2nd set>>interesting placement of Never trust a woman
followed by Lost Sailor>Saint..a solid well played show..so please GIVE IT A WHIRL!!!! Forever
REVIEW: 1st show
This was my first dead show. All I wanted to know after the show was over,”where was the next show”
What an experience that I will never forget and has change my life for the best.
There are mix problems thru the 1st half of “Minglewood Blues” (disc 1 track1). The Soundboard cuts at
the 6:54 mark of “The Music Never Stopped” (disc1 track 9), the Sennheiser 441 audience source is used
to provide the final 1:30 of “The Music Never Stopped” as well as Bob’s set break announcement.The
Soundboard cuts at the 4:35 mark of “Fire on the Mountain” (disc 2 track 6), the Nakamichi CM300’s +
CP4’s audience source provides balance of that track from the 4:35 mark thru the 10:13 mark. During the
Drumns/Space sequence, the quality of the Soundboard quickly deteriorates to the point of being
unlistenable. Therefore, the balance of the show,disc 3 in its entirety, is provided via the Nakamichi
CM300’s + CP4’s source (which I find _very_ enjoyable).
