  • Edit notes: These reels have been mastered for better tonal balance. Phil's bass was the center point of this multi track mix down. It was a tad too much to begin. A different feel than the standard vault reel master reel. The highs originally were VERY buried and or decayed and i returned them to a better position in the mix, albeit still a tad distant. This edit was in the works for a couple of months. Lots of our ears LListened as we came to the best balance for the edit. I'm sure you will enjoy.- j.w.

These 10/74 reel copies made by Will back in 1979 were most likely 'work tapes' used by Jerry for production work for the "GD Movie". all the following shows are complete including all the 'seastones' sets so more cool things on the way. Yes, i know there have been multiple versions of these shows but IMHO, these are unique versions that were Jerry's own copies that were dubbed from by Will. Basically these versions were never copied by anyone in will's circle since everyone already had them via rob bertrando and no one at the time bothered to investigate them. Remember, this was 1979 and the GD were still a great behemoth of a touring machine so everyone was more concerned with taping new shows. There is no cassette gen with these as they were straight reel copies that i know for sure so these 24 bit versions esp. are really nice. Whether Jerry had a master of a 2 track mixdown or a copy will never be known for sure but these really do sound fantastic regardless. Much more of a "being there" feeling IMHO.. ENJOY!! ....Stuff from the debbie stash is hard to explain at times and nailing down exact lineages is even harder. either way they all sound fantastic!!! It was the kind of deal where Will suddenly found out about all these reels/cassettes that Jerry "left" there so he copied as much as he could w/o any concern of the exact source. There were TONS of stuff everywhere strewn all over the house.."
