Phil's amp fails, forcing an unscheduled acoustic set to close the show with. Jerry plays electric guitar for some of the acoustic set. This is also the day that the Dead were busted by the New Orleans police before the show, prompting some appropriate stage banter. The recording was normalized with Sound Forge, which was also used to edit a few small blemishes.

The Dead performed at The Warehouse for two nights. On January 31, 1970, the local police raided their hotel on Bourbon Street and arrested and charged a total of 19 people with possession of various drugs. This event was later memorialized in the lyrics of the song Truckin’.

I just wanted to say that I'm a big fan of the cover art you do. I've downloaded based just on the cover art, just like I did in the old days.

Thanks for everything,
