According to my source, GDTRFB goes straight into Lovelight

it's a not fade jam

Great show !! I was there! Manhattan Center is still on 34th Street off 8th Avenue, unfortunately it is owned by Moonies (followers of Rev. Sung Yung Moon) and they don't have concerts there anymore. Very cool place, too bad they can't have concerts there anymore.

According to Wikipedia, the Big Railroad Blues and Not Fade Away/Goin' Down the Road from this show are the versions used on the Grateful Dead album (Skull and Roses). On the album Pigpen's organ has been buried on Big Railroad Blues

Not Fade Away/Goin' Down the Road from this show are the versions used on the Grateful Dead album (Skull and Roses).

Yup. Pretty much unmistakably. This version has been fused into my head for over 30 years. Though I think they cleaned up Jerry's vocals at a point or two on the album vs. this stream.

I don't like how Big RR Blues slows down (at the beginning) on the the actual concert, it's a little better
-Anonymous (04/05/2012)

The 5-piece makeup of the Band in '71 - the setup that produced the epic 'Skull & Roses' LP - was arguably the most adventurous and yet lyrical version of the Best Band in the Land. Weir's work becoming more integral and supportive, Phil's incorporation of melody into the mix, Dr. Trips' soaring scales and mood-altering leads, all held together by Billy's absolutely relentless rhytmic pummeling. The Master Accompanist Mr. Godchaux, soon to join the Boys, would add yet another layer to the long strange trip that never ends.

my second show, seemed like the Deaf were in NY every month. Saw them at The Capital Theatre in Feb and then again later that month at the Fillmore East
All of these shows had NRPS opening so by the time the deads second set and encores were done it was usually around 3-4am always a school nite and then public transportation home in a race to get ints bed before my dad got up and would wake me up to get on the school bus .. close calls
