Second of two nights at Wollman Rink in Central Park as part of the Schaefer Music Festival.

This show has circulated both as August 25th and August 26th. It hasn't made the rounds since the EZT days and even then it was misidentified as being from August 25th. As can be heard by WCBS DJ Ed Williams, the show is on a Saturday night, which confirms it's from the 26th.

This uses mainly what is presumably a reel source because the clarity of that was far superior to the CDR source. The CDR source had a little more bass, but the reel source was stratospherically clearer in the high ends. For example, the downpour and rain that can be heard after the aborted "Consequently, So Long" is buried on the CDR version.

The CDR source was instrumental in adding in some missing inter-song banter and extending out some songs that were cut on the reel source. It also had "Ol' Forgiver" which was not present on the main source.

This recording is not without its faults. t01, t03, and t11 fade in. t15 has WCBS ID right in the middle of the song. There is of course the rain shorting out the PAs throughout and the inherent sound problems that were being tended to onstage. However, until someone surprises us with something better, 47 years later, this should stand as the definitive version of this show.

Many thanks to Kingrue for the main "reel" source for this mix.
