Notes from the original uploader.

This two-record vinyl boot must have sold a million copies, because it seems that just about everyone used to have one. The sound quality is really nice considering the audience recording technology of 1971. Neil is quite talkative, and his “comedy” on “Sugar Mountain” is hilarious. I consider this show essential to a live Neil Young collection.
This is from mint-condition records; I was told they’d been played only six times. Still, you’ll notice the vinyl noise — boots in that era were not exactly high-quality pressings. Still, it’s pretty minor, I think. No effort has been made to “clean it up” — this is how it would have sounded if you were bringing one home from a head shop in 1971. This recording has never emerged among collectors from a non-vinyl source.
CD case artwork is included; it’s made from the original album jacket, including some incorrect titles because many songs were unreleased at the time. I still can’t figure how they got “It’s So Hard to Wait” for “On the Way Home.”

210- Deal
211- Sugar Magnalia
212- Ramble on Rose
213- Johnny B. Goode
214- Uncle John’s Band (encore)

Original Restoration notes:
– Increased opening levels for Bertha (first 3 minutes or so of the song).

– Music! Music! Music! tuning after Bertha.

– Level corrected for the first 20 seconds of Playing in the Band.

– Stella Blue – Left channel record levels (overadjustment and overcompensation) smoothed about 3 minutes in.

– Truckin’ had some odd gain increases for guitars in the left channel. I wasn’t certain if they were part of the performance or part of the recording, but Weir overpowered the rest of the music. I lowered the levels in the left channel so that you can still hear what they are doing and it’s louod but it’s not overly loud. I also increased the right channel (Garcia) when it happens during a guitar interplay/jam. The same thing happens with Phil during the quiet part of the jam, but you can hear the pot open, etc. so pretty certain this was a recording mistake. I did the same with it.

– I cut out several tape start/stop spots (I think that is what they were) between The Other One and Deal. This is also where a tape flip/new tape would have needed to be used.

– The “cut of death” in The Other One (see below, I muted the space between and faded out the stop/start sections (less than a second), so the cut is still obvious but not too bad.

– Speed was off slightly a little unpredictable, likely because of the multiple generations of cassettes. It’s not noticeable while listening, so I left Set I alone except for Jack Straw and corrected most of the issues in set II.

– Jack Straw was patched in with a different recorder during analog editing, but from what appears to be the same master tapes. Likely moved at one point to fit on cassettes then moved back after digital transfer – the patch is at 46 minutes into Set II and cuts the
end of Stella Blue). There would have been 10 minutes at the end of the second cassette for it, and there was a bass note that did not belong, so that’s likely where it was. I left the bass note in in case someone else wants to sleuth a bit.

– I left the cuts in UJB as they were.

– One of the recorders had an annoying ‘bump’ every few seconds but it’s most evident in a few quiet parts between songs.

Thanks to BCE, Germain and the original seeders and those who transferred.

Comments by Craig on SHNID 5801 (
-there are no segues from TOO>Deal, Deal>Sugar Mag or JB Goode>UJB
-Stella Blue cuts @ 7:19
-cut of death in The Other One @ 11:03,
-2 cuts in UJB(1:05 & 3:01). At 3:05>end, sound becomes duller
