June 2 ’78:

“Thank you. Thank you very much. This is a song off our new Columbia Records album, Street-Legal. Soon to be released.” (before Baby, Stop Crying)

“Thank you. This song’s the story of my life.” (before Tangled Up In Blue)

“Thank you all right. All right thank you. Thank you very much. This is a song I recorded with The Band while we were hanging around up in Woodstock.” (before I Shall Be Released)

“Thank you. We’ll play another song and take a break now, eat something. This is another song that I recorded with The Band a few years back.” (before Going, Going, Gone)

“Thank you. This is another song from the forthcoming album, ha ha, Street-Legal. Remember that! This one’s called Tales Of Yankee Power.”

June 7 ’78:

“Thank you. Well, like Jerry Garcia would say. We’re gonna beat it on down the line. Well, we hope you had a good time. We think these songs do mean some thing to you. So, have a real safe trip home. We’re gonna be out of the country for awhile, though we’ll be back from far distant lands, so I hope we see each other again sometime.” (before Forever Young).
