- Garcia's mic wasn't working at the start of the first set but comes on after a minute or so.
- "How Sweet It Is" cuts in about ½ way through the second verse.  There's a few mic bumps in the first couple
  of minutes or so.
- "Evangeline" is missing the first few seconds
- The tape was paused between most songs, these and tape flips have been crossfaded.


Matt first contacted me back in February 2007 saying that he had some masters that would be nice to share.  So we tried
to arrange for him to get the tapes to me but for one reason or another he wasn't able do so until just a few weeks ago.  Unfortunately, when I went to listen to them, I found that my Nak had a problem and had to send it for a service and replacement reel motor.  So having waited 3 years another few weeks hardly seemed to matter.  Anyway here it is at long last.

Matt's memories of the night:

We taped it using a Sony D5 and AKG460's held in two sleeves in a baseball cap "hornhat" sitting at the only table with a light above it, so we were a little nervous being our first time at The Stone.  I remember there was a big video screen showing the players which I thought unusual for such a small bar.  I remember, thinking while enjoying the concert, how I would like to get that video.

Many thanks to Matt for lending me his masters

edired and mastered
