Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders:

Mastering Notes:
-- d1t01 - Tape fades in, then taper equipment problems at 02:11 where recording is cut; there is about a minute of intrumentals missing along with some Jerry vocals. Cut was cross-faded with the remainder of the song and kept as one track.
-- d2t04 - Tape flip cross-faded.

-- This is listed as Garcia and Saunders since it has been confirmed Ron Tutt did not play drums at this show; however, it is not certain who did.
-- d1t03 - Based on currently available information "Day By Day" (instrumental) was played just two other times at a show.
-- d2t01 - Notable feedback at about 00:43 and 01:16.
-- d2t04 - According to db.etree "Tough Mama" is not part of the originally circulating Menke-Falanga taped source (shnid=4477). However, it is included in the db.etree show listing set list (shows_key=4888). It is not present in the set list shown at
-- d2t04 - "Tough Mama" fades in, with just a few seconds of music missing.

Taper Talk:
-- Question - "Was Bob [Menke] friendly enough with [Steve] Parish to be allowed stage lip mic mounting?"
-- Answer - "We had no permission. We snuck the equipment in and were near the front of the line so we could get the spot. In early 1976 at Sophie's (before the veunue became Keystone Palo Alto) we tried the same thing and 2 things happened. Ramroad cut our mic cable during the first set and Parish threatened to break the 152 over our heads if he saw us trying to tape the 2nd set. Hope that answers your question."

Special Note:
-- These are recordings done by Bob Menke and Louis Falanga at the Berkeley Keystone, made in May and June of 1975, that MOTB will be turning out, the subsequent Grateful Dead and related recordings are dedicated to Bob Menke's mom, Connie, who is suffering from pancreatic cancer. As you listen to what are certainly the most unique - if possibly not some of the best - audience recordings of Jerry Garcia in his prime, please send out healing vibes and prayers to Connie any way you see fit. We are all pulling for her, so please keep her in your hearts and prayers. The MOTB Team
