This was the first show I saw in a venue with seating. My other shows were at the great Shrine Exposiiton Hall in LA in 68.

At some point the powers that be determined that dancing in the aisles was a fire hazard, so in came a bunch of firemen to get people to sit down. The mood turned tense in the middle of the music. It caught Jerry's attention and it seemed to me that he used his guitar to reach down and completely defuse the situation.

The New Riders played between sets, including Jerry and Billy, I think.

Not sure why but after performing High Time many times during 1969 and 1970, this song wasn't played at all during my favorite era of '71-'74.
It returned into the rotation in '76

Yes, the ushers and the firemen would not let people dance, that is until Pigpen sang "Turn on Your Lovelight.
Then so many people rushed down the aisles to the front of the stage that there was nothing that they could do.

I was at the show, and while I don't remember much of it, I did find a review of the show in the LA Free Press dated October 2, 1970.

Based on the review, the set list does not appear to be correct.
