This is the complete concert, which doesn't seem to exist entirely as a soundboard recording. To complete the missing songs, good sounding audience recordings were used to fill in. They are marked with an asterisk (*). The front cover has been used before as a boot cover, and it's still just as cheesy. It would have been fine without the Bob Dylan written on the glasses. The package is fairly good, though a bit simplistic. The concert is a fantastic voyage for anyone interested in the gospel years.

Thanks to Keith Schweiger for scans

Bob is talkative tonight. Here are some transcriptions. Each occurs after the song of the corresponding letter.

(A) Thank you. We're gonna slow it down some right now. Mrs. Regina McCreary, gonna sing Keep On Falling In Love Till I Get It Right.

(B) Thank you. Well, I don't know exactly what to say here. Different peoples been coming down to the theater every night so far. And this night is no exception I guess. Anyway this is, keep ..., here's a young man I know you know who he is. I've played with him a few times before. I'm a great admirer and fan of his and support his group all the way, Jerry Garcia. He's gonna play with us, key of C.

(C) That was Clydie King. This is a new song ..., don't know how old it is. Anyway, it's called Can We Keep It Between Us.

(D) A lot of people ask me about old songs and new songs. This is a real old song. This song is so old, I'd say it's about 200 years old. A song I used to sing before I wrote any songs. Anyway, it's one of those tragic, ... tragic love ballads.

(E) When I was standing out backstage, and this guy came up to me, he said "You remember that woman that came up to you about an hour ago with the long red hair?" And I said, "Yeah I remember that woman." And he said, "She sure was beautiful, wasn't she?" And I said, "Yes, she was all right." He said "That was me."

(F) We're gonna play a new song here in the key of A. This is called The Groom Is Still Waiting At The Altar.

(G) I actually saw the great Odetta's here tonight. I saw her! Tom Sawyer. Tom Cruise...

(H) Willie Smith is playing organ tonight. All the rest of the keyboards too. Tim Drummond is playing the drums. Fred Tackett on lead guitar. Tim Drummond on bass. Clydie King, Regina McCreary, Carolyn Dennis vocalists for tonight. Special guest star is Jerry Garcia. We'll see you later now.
