This show was great! They were advertised as playing acoustically but came out with their electric instruments and open with a song that they had to the best of my knowledge always played acoustically.

-Anonymous (12/23/2010)

according to's 2007-2008 Taper's Section, "Dancin" was played at this show
-Anonymous (12/23/2011)

Lingering confusion abounds re: this date and 12/17. The songs from this date are on the archive link ID: 31608. The other one is apparently 12/17.

ANYWAYS, this is a fine little snippet - the Good Lovin' is rockin' hot. 1970 sbds are so precious and rare.

This is the complete set played on 12/23/70 at Winterland. It does not include the four-song excerpt ("Hard to Handle" through "Cold Rain and Snow") from 12/17/70 that was long thought to be a part of this show. At the end, Phil says: "Good night, folks. Merry Christmas and God bless you!" And Jerry adds: "Thanks for helping us bail out the Bear!"

The show had been billed as a benefit for the Montessori School featuring the "Acoustic Dead" together with Hot Tuna and the New Riders of the Purple Sage. "This is how it exists on Bear's cassettes," wrote Dick on a note attached to the cassette copy. "I can't be responsible for how Deadbase has the songs listed."
