Album Notes

The back cover of this set includes the following text about the source of the recording:
The soundboard tapes from which this CD package originated were created under far less than ideal, and in certain senses downright intimidating, circumstances. Aside from their main purpose – presenting a gloriously abundant slice of the Jerry Garcia Band’s legendary 13 Magical Nights On Broadway – the recordings contained herein also clearly prove the worth of courage, hard work and modern science. Rest assured, as you enjoy this music, it hasn’t sounded nearly this good since performed live.
