  • This seed comes from the generousity of Jim Oade at The show was labeled as 12-31-70aftershow. Unfortunately there is little to no information regarding this performance since I can't find any evidence of it circulating prior to this. Please contact me at if you have any additional information relating to this performance.

    d1t03 ?Rock Me Baby? - Not sure if this is the correct title or not.

    d1t05 I Know You Rider - A very interesting early version of this song. This version has a different tempo at times and some strange lyrics.

    d1t06-d1t11 - These were patched at the end of the performance so I kept them on the seed. They are some pretty interesting promos. The names are in quotes because this was the best description that I could come up with.

    d1t08 "We're Sorry We're Not Playing Portchester Jam" - Jerry and Mickey in a bluegrass jam apologizing for not playing Portchester.

    Enjoy this rare treat!
