John Dawson - rhythm guitar, vocals, David Nelson - lead guitar, vocals, David Torbert - bass, vocals, Jerry Garcia - pedal steel guitar, Mickey Hart - drums. Last Lonely Eagle cuts on Master Reel. Early set incomplete; songs listed above are all that exist on the master reel. ..From Deadlists (some edits): Early Show NRPS set with Garcia, pedal steel. This is about half their set -- all there is on the master. Before Last Lonely Eagle Marmaduke asks where's "Bobby Ace" -- probably Weir was a guest vocalist later in the set. Enterprising Fillmore East stagecrew patched a reel-to-reel machine underneath the stage into the PA feed and saved most of this show for us and eternity. They were busy setting up for the Early Show electric Dead set and blew their flip during the Early Show NRPS set, losing the second half of that set as a result, but the rest of this enormous evening's proceedings are recorded in their entirety. Here's the ticket stub.
