- This is not a fantastic recording, but this show is almost uncirculated, so it has been made available. I did everything I could to eliminate some of the noise and clicks and make it sound as good as possible, but there are part of the show that sound pretty wavy, but it's mostly between songs.
- The first few seconds are a little mangled.
- Occasional feedback throughout.
- The end of Cassidy is cut.
- The levels are high during the All-Star Jam.

Missing setlist


- Other sources for this day exist for some of the sets.
- Each source has been previously individually circulated.
- The Acoustic Hot Tuna set exists, but I've yet to locate the Electric Hot Tuna, Los Lobos or Alvin Youngblood Hart sets.
- The well is running dry on locating any new or additional Furthur Festival sets. If you have any kicking around out there on DAT, Cassette or CD let me know at I'm happy to do any transfers. There are still many missing sets.

This show is part of The Furthur Project -
