According to Marty Weinberg, this was the first show where Bobby sang the correct lyric at the end of El Paso. "It wasn't until I saw Bobby at the Felt Forum that I finally got to him and told him he was singing the song wrong. All those years he sang the wrong words. He didn't know, he never listened. I knew the song pretty well, the original Marty Robbins version, but he just didn't listen. ... At the very end of the song he was singing 'Greater my true love in arms that I'll die for.' And that's not the words. The words are 'Cradled by two loving arms that I'll die for.'

[Bobby said] 'Man, thanks a lot. You're right.' And there he sang it right at the Forum. He waved at me [as if to say] 'Yeah right, I finally got it right.'"

-Dave's Picks 22 Bonus Disc (05/01/2017)


Unfortunately, Jerry is having tuning problems from at least SUGAR MAG thru the end of the show on 12/5 (Dave's Picks 22 disc one and two) and it continues thru the first set of 12/6. Sound like the B string perhaps. Finicky set up on the Strat maybe? I think he was playing the Strat then (?). Or new strings or? Guitar techs will know better than I.Too bad, otherwise good show. The fact that it continues two gigs in a row points to a technical issue than a problem with, as some have ventured, him being too buzzed etc. Granted remember that there were no super efficient tuners back then if any. And sure there are tuning issues thruout the GD early history but they generally never last long, for whole show or over the course of a couple of shows. Makes this nice show hard to listen to. I haven't listened to set 2 12/6 to see if the problem was fixed during the set break. Keith and Phil: in tune, Bob occasionally out seemingly trying to figure if it's him or Jerry out. Jerry of course compensates with bends and vibrato while fretting leads but open string notes and some chords make it obvious that it's a problem with one string and intonation.
