I made this 16 bit conversion for those who don't have the ability to listen to 24 bit music. This should be a minority by now - consider that any analog stereo is already playing superior quality than most digital formats, including 24 bit. Setting up your stereo to play 24 bit quality from your computer is neither time consuming or expensive, so please consider why this was originally seeded in 24 bit only and give that a try. If you still feel stuck in the 16 bit trap, so be it.
But you should really, really give the 24 bit a try.

The Poster Displayed Isn't for this Show
Anyone notice anything odd about the poster?
It's not for this show. If you look closely, it's from the Muir Beach Acid Test from 1965. One clear giveaway that this poster isn't advertising the Harpur College Show of 1970 is that the poster lists among the 'performers' Neal Cassady. That iconic Beat and Prankster died in 1968.
Exceptional The Other One, with several melodic passages, starting with the Garcia passage at 0:44 and a blazing culmination at 12:38.
Combines the energy of shorter primal TOO's and space of the 40 minute jams from the early 70s.

I had walked away from my Roman Catholic upbringing and the song COLD JORDAN which was played but is NOT on this recording helped lead me to JESUS without any middle man.
"I am sure without HIM
you never will make it HOME"
This is a great show. The acoustic set has a lot of emotion. I always considered this one of my favorite Cumberland Blues.
Also the banter is pretty funny.
I had Cowboy Dead and Thornbones
on one cassette-That was cool!

An "Other One" for the ages
This is such a great acoustic performance. Add to that a super charged electric set and an "Other One" that surely melted the minds of those youngsters in attendance! Played with such ferociousness it sounds like freight train barreling down the track and headed right for your face! Quintessential Dead here. A fine recording as well!

If anyone knows a better version of the other one, please let me know, this is the best version I've heard. Jam central then the impact of "spanish lady she come to me" always gets me

One of my favorite shows. Always liked the earlier swing-rhythm Candyman, even though it's short. As has been said, great Other One. DP 8 is available on iTunes.

At the very least, we have four consecutive tracks (13, 14, 15, & 16) that are ONE SONG! That's not even taking into account that the Saint Stephen before, and the Cosmic Charlie after, are all part of one uninterrupted performance.
That means that those of us who have this show on 42-year-old cassette, reel or bootleg vinyl have a superior listening experience than what is offered here.
In the early '70's, there was a bootleg album from this show that was very popular in my circle of heads. It was called "THE COWBOY'S DEAD!" and had this 'lyric' printed on the cover: "Spanish lady she came to me & layed on me this drug." It also had a drawing of a western desert scene with a dead man hanging from a tree, and said "Live at Harpur Spring '70". Side 1 was 'Deep River Blues' (Deep Elem), Candyman, Cumberland Blues and Cosmic Charlie. Side 2 was The Other One.
Candyman proceeded into Cumberland without having to switch tracks, and side 2 was one uninterrupted half hour of face-melting bliss.
