    I just recently scored a copy of this album. It had been on my want list for, like forever. I would have to agree with the HW rating of VGS. It’s a really nice show, and sometimes the recording is very clear. What I would like to add is the following statement. This album runs noticeably slow. Even with it sped up to proper pitch, you get somewhat of a surprise. This LP runs 67 minutes!

  2. Thank you for reporting back, Doinker.
    67 minutes! Must make this a contender for “Longest playing time of a single album bootleg LP”.

      No, that would definitely be Grateful Dead Living On The Edge. Three of the four sides are over 40 minutes each!
