Source: Soundboard, recorded on 02 May, 1970 at Harpur College in Binghampton, NY, on half track 7½ ips analog tapes. “In a 1993 poll of Grateful Dead tape traders, the 5/2/70 show was ranked #6 on the list of all-time favorite Dead concert tapes.” The complete show, including the second and third sets (in mono) was officially released as Dick’s Picks Volume 8 in June of 1997 as a 3-CD set.
Above: Other versions/later reissues:
- Nepalese Productions / Har-Glo Records JCS-7001 version advertising the “Crateful Dead”
- Black Gold Concerts was the new label name Berkeley Records used in the second half of the 1970’s (BG 6969)
- (not shown) Version with “Karma City” labels
- Side 1 of Ken’s SILENT DEAD – (smoking pig) TMOQ 73010 used four tracks from this date.
More material from this date appeared on this title, shown here with all three slip sheet variations (black & red; orange and b&w):
Although the 803-A/B matrix looks like a WCF release not much else does. The insert design has none of the WCF-typical features and the record label has an inner ring, never seen with WCF pressings. On the other hand, there is also a gatefold reissue that does look very much like it may be part of their 1974 reissue series that placed an image or drawing of (one of) the artist(s) on the back panel.
