  1. THE MOTHER OF ALL ENCORES! This is how the Deadhead’s Taping Compendium describes the monumental jam that closed the show, including the only “What’s become of the baby” ever (even if a recorded version -but not the one on Aoxomoxoa- was played through the sound system at the show, as some commentators believe). Fantastic stuff.

  2. The Taping Compendium! I haven’t read that thing in ages. I need to drag those things back out sometime. Great stuff.

  3. Hi Mat,

    There’s no Part 2 FLAC file to download. Most of disc 3 is missing. It is in the MP3 download, but not in the FLAC download.

    Very cool stuff, I always hoped the Dead would have released the full concert instead of the excerpts on DP26.

    Thank you very much for sharing this.

    Bob W.

  4. Can you tell me which songs are missing?

    What happened is I ran out of Mediafire space so was only able to upload part 1 I think and then I forgot that I hadn’t uploaded part 2. So I wound up deleting both parts and I no longer no which songs I got up and which ones I didn’t.
