Transfer by Matt Smith, FLAC encoding by ecocats.93137Bhas the distortion as indicated and background crackling which bring its rating down to B but otherwise clear sound; gets better for last third (d2t2 and d2t3) where quality moves up to mostly A- as it does not have as much distortion; this is same show as 5/20/71 100855; the background crackling and distortion on that is less prominent making it better ***

 PERRO: Source: Master Soundboard Reels Recorded by Stephen Barncard 1970 - 1971 , Transferred at A & M Tape Copy 01/23/1991 to DAT, , jcannon dat copy > cd > eac - files renamed and tagged. Per Barncard's notes, this appears to be the complete copy in order. Circulated November 2011117066Ain 5-way comparison on loser, 87499 has a cleaner looking transfer than 4498 and 81260; pinkrobert's "The Ultimate PERRO Tapes: 2008 Edition" is lossy like from mini-disc and cleaner than 87499; (note that cleaner may sometimes involve noise reduction removing fullness of sound); 4498 has the fullest sound, then 117066, then 81260, then this, and then pinkrobert; these sets are confusing as they are not all the same length, the content is not in the same order, tracks are cut differently, and track names are sometimes different so hard to match up for completeness; I am not an expert nor do i have great familiarity with the material; longest is 117066=120min, pinkrobert=119min, 4498=113min, 87499=111min, 81260=101min; so i have selected 117066 for greatest length and second best sound and least digital flaws; the first track on 117066 is reported by torrenter to be previously uncirculated ***
xx/xx/71The Ultimate PERRO Tapes: 2008 Edition, Wally Heider's Studio, San Francisco
 david crosby & planet earth rock'n'roll orchestra, january 2-14, 1971, excellent quality, in the history of bootleg collecting rarely a single set of tapes, aroused so many speculations and undivided interest during, very long period of time as it was in the case of the recordings, od david crosby during and after recording of his solo album, if i could only remember my name, commonly called perro, tapes., it all started in 1991 with 120 minutes perro dat tape that, paul kantner made from the original tapes that were in the, possession of graham nash and at the same time c-90 cassette, with, presumably at the time, if i could only remember my, name outtakes started to circulate. later, the set of three c-90, cassettes was labeled, perro tapes, although a lot of materials, were instantly recognised as david and the dorks matrix tapes, and so called hart jam. in 1997, the first set of four cd-rs, included the most of non-perro tracks from the mentioned, cassettes. a year later, double cdr, if i could only remember, the outtakes, joint venture of a dutch collector and eastern, european collector started making turns in the trades among, the collectors of crosby and company. although often blamed, as the set of outfakes it was widely circulated for a long time., the first true reference set of perro discs showed up in 2001, and it was consisted of 2 cdr named, perro: the stephen, barncard rough mixes, and 2 cdr named, the perro, supplement: a collection of perro-related tracks, the first, two discs consisted of the complete legendary perro dat, recording in the best quality., the first, new, recordings started to circulate in 2007 with, the compilation of iicormn and perro tracks in the superior, quality than ever before. the bootleg was called, everybody, here can be in the band, but on the torrent sites it was called, david crosby sessions, or, iicormn - the sessions, . later in, the year, three sets of tracks started to circulate under titles:, acoustic, electric, and residue, all in similar superior, quality. some of the tracks were of suspicious origin, but the, improvement in quality was obvious., the set in your hands is the best quality and the most complete, collection of genuine iiormn outtakes and the best quality, versions of perro tracks. all outfakes were disregarded, same, as the tracks that were not the integral part of david crosby, sessions, such was jefferson airplane bark session that was, included in perro supplement., until something new would show up, i hope that this could serve, as true reference of magnificent david crosby sessions, from 1970-1971., pr, january 2008; Disc 1:, 1.

 Garcia, Cage, and others : 7" mono open reel > 24 bit transfer > resample > CD-R > SHN. Note that this often circulates with other dates/venues, including 5/14/70 Scotty's Music Store in St. Louis, MO.6609B+in comparison to nrps 5/14/70 dat, 6609 has levels raised and compressed and has an easier to hear much fuller sound; 6609 is also 18 minutes longer; the nrps 5/14/70 dat is similar in content and sound quality to "Source: MR(See Notes Below)>?>C>DAT>WAV>SHN, C>SHN Conversion by Cousinit, Seeded to abgd August 2003" (which was filler on cousinits mars hotel outtakes) except it also has noise reduction  
 see filler on nrps 5/2/70 dat; garcia & cage, (i believe this is mislabled here and is really the same as what is on dat as 10/16/72), picked up something i haven't seen elsewhere., this single sbd cd features jerry garcia & buddy cage jamming and noodling with a few marmaduke vocals and a weir vocal (seasons). someone (marmaduke) picks up a bass halfway through). very interesting artifact, not from the vault. session runs until reel runs out (47:30), here what i have on this:, =================================, jam session info, here's the note from james that came with the show:, now, to the other goody i sent you. here's the story on that. a friend of mine who does sound and production work here in st. louis was taking slide guitar lessons and went through the archive of open reel tapes they had there and found the one in question. he asked to borrow it and took it home and did a 24 bit digital transfer from the mono 7" open reel. this hasn't been heard by many more people than brad, myself and a few others in 30 years!!! i was pretty damn excited about the discovery and glad that i was, only the second person that had heard it counting brad after he mastered the tape. as far as i know at this point it's jerry garcia, buddy cage and other members of nrps. other than that that's all i know right now. the grateful dead's archives don't even have this tape. pretty fun stuff to listen too even though it's a lot of noodling and such. i kinda like it myself., everything was plugged straight into the open reel deck. so the source would be:, 7" mono open reel > 24 bit transfer > resample > cd-r, ====================, shns from rowjimmy kelly on 8-30-01, note from peter braverman (braverman@earthlink.net) 9/01:, either the date or the venue has got to be wrong. the dead played 12-6-71 and 12-7-71 in new york city. the idea that garcia would have gone to dc for a jam session, and then back to nyc for a show that night, strains credulity, to say the least. anybody with more information is enouraged to volunteer it -- append it here and/or e-mail me to let me know what you find out. thanks!; My attempt at a setlist:, 1. unknown (Garcia & Cage duet), 2. Runnin' Back To You ( G&C no vocal), 3. unknown (G&C), 4. noodle (G&C), 5. Take Me Home Country Roads (G&C Marmaduke and others on vocals), 6. jazz riff (Cage), 7. Long Black Veil (G&C McDuke on vocals), 8. Anybody Goin' To San Antone (G&C plus McDuke), 9. unknown (Jerry out? - he mentions having to get to hotel at the airport), 10. unknown, 11. equipment fu, 12. unknown, 13.
