Album Notes

Some songs were edited (shortened) versions of the live performances.

The material recorded in 1980 was originally intended for release on one double-LP set. But the format of the music subsequently steered them towards the release of the two double-albums. Garcia commented on this in an interview: “We really ended up with so much good material that it was a struggle. The idea of just one acoustic and one electric record was sort of pathetic, since our electric tunes are seldom less than eight minutes long. And that meant our fat electric album would have two songs on a side. It was kind of silly.”
