HOW DID NO ONE COMMENT THIS SHOW YET??!?!?!?! This is one of the best '69 shows in my opinion. A 30 minute rockin' lovelight. First SOTOTW and IHMT in a while. Get it from the archive, or I dont care where you get it, just get it!

totally dig this show. they are on fire for the whole thing. really nice version of the rarer Doin' That Rag. everything else totally rips as well. so much energy in this show, you can tell the boys are having a great time!

give it a listen, you won't be disappointed... granted the only recording i have is an audience with some girl talking to the taper throughout the show... but its really funny when he tells her to shut up :)

the dark star features a power move by jerry. that is the best way i can describe it. the whole show has the band very primed and ready for adventure. only source i have found is AUD but it has decent dynamic properties and is an easy listen. the audience claps along in perfect time. hambone.

"we have a lost dog and if anyone finds him, please return him to behind the stage..." before Hard To Handle

Found a little blurb from an Omaha newspaper that recounts a memory of a local recording studio owner from either this show or the February one at the Music Box:

“Jerry thought his guitar kept going out of tune,” Erickson said, recounting one of the two times the world-famous group played The Music Box. “So one of my friends actually loaned him his guitar to play. And then another friend of mine recorded him. You would have a little tiny tape deck, a little reel-to-reel tape deck. And Jerry was kind of moping around, afterwards, because he thought he had done a really terrible job. And he and my buddy actually sat there and listened to the show, and then Jerry was like 'oh, that's not so bad.'”
