Although this circulates labeled as "1/23/68 Eagles Aud", no documentary evidence (posters, reviews,
newspaper ads, etc) has been found for shows there during the Quick and the Dead tour, other than
the two on 1/26 and 1/27. Joe Jupille researched the University of Washington Daily and the Seattle
Post-Intelligencer newspapers and only found an ad for QMS and the Dead on 1/26 and 1/27 in the
1/26/68 edition of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer (the weekend entertainment insert, p. 6). He turned
up no mention of other Quick and the Dead shows at Eagles Auditorium. This show has one of the early
versions of the Other one lyrics: When I woke up this morning, my head was not in sight I would ask
the walls about it, but they vanished overnight I could not think to spell my name, or fly there was
no way and the heat came round and busted me for smiling on a cloudy day I was skipping through the
lilly fields, when I came across an empty space it quivered and exploded, left a bus stop in its
place the bus came by and I got on, that's when it all began there was Cowboy Neal, at the wheel, of
a bus to never-ever land Not listed in DeadBase XI. There is no Drums after the first Cryptical, the
Other one has the original lyrics, and there is a tape flip in New Potato Caboose. Timings should be
