The splice in Checkin' Up @ 1:14 is very minor, and hardly noticeable
For unknown reasons, it appears that Jerry Garcia is missing for the first 5
songs, and Elvin Bishop plays lead guitar. The crowd, Phil & Bob
acknowledge the missing Garcia after Smokestack, which must be the opener.
Wayne Ceballos adds vocals for Checkin' Up and BIODTL. A faintly heard voice
off microphone could be Garcia's just before Checkin' Up. Two days later
during the same run, Pigpen ended up a spectator for some songs while Bishop
& Ceballos sat in, so it seems possible that this is the case with Jerry,
given a laid back atmosphere.
Deadlists vaguely indicates that this represents all of 6-6-69. However, it
seems likely that some music may be missing before Lovelight. The guests
are not present during Lovelight, and Garcia is playing on this version.
This is perhaps the longest version of Lovelight known to have been played,
clocking in at just under 47 minutes.
Sound Forge was used to correct the pitch of the recording.
