This is the concert formerly thought to have taken place on 11/23/70 at
the Anderson Theater in New York City. This show has been shrouded in
mystery and confusion over the last 30 years ever since it first entered
circulation in 1973. However, fresh research has unveiled what is most
likely the true story behind this classic Grateful Dead show.
On 11/14/70 at Frank Zappa's Fillmore East Late Show, Grace Slick came
out on stage, on behalf of Bill Graham, to announce an unscheduled concert
featuring the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane the following Monday,
November 16th. As it turned out, the Airplane were in the middle of
breaking up and Grace was pregnant. So instead of the Airplane, Hot Tuna
filled in to share the bill with the Dead. A few days later, on
November 18th and 19th, Traffic played at the Fillmore.
There are several pieces of evidence which now point directly to the
"11/23/70 Anderson Theater" show being correctly identified as Fillmore
1) Traffic has been confirmed, in a letter written by the Kleinhans Music
Hall, as having played at the Kleinhans Music Hall, Buffalo, NY on
11/23/70. This firmly places them out of New York City on that date.
Thanks to Greg Shaw for this help.
2) Bill Graham introduces the Dead. The identification of his voice is
clear, as never before, on this new transfer. Bill Graham and the owner
of the Anderson Theater were not friendly with each other and Bill Graham
would never have introduced the Grateful Dead in the Anderson Theater.
3) A 1:55 snippet of Hot Tuna playing Hesitation Blues precedes the Dead's
show on the first generation 10" reel.
4) After Bob Weir sings the Frozen Logger off-mic, several people on
stage can be heard attempting to get Jack Casady to join in saying, "
Hey Casady, why don't you play" and "Hey Jack, hey Jack, c'mon up".
Hot Tuna played on 11/16/70 at the Fillmore and they are not known to
have played at the Anderson Theater.
5) An eyewitness who attended the 11/16/70 Fillmore show clearly
recalls Steve Winwood and Jorma Kaukonen sitting in with the Dead.
6) Music was commonly played over the P.A. between sets at the Fillmore
to promote upcoming shows. Elton John played at the Fillmore East the
following weekend, November 20th and 21st as the warm up for Leon Russell.
This was his first New York City appearance.
7) On page 382 in his book Long Strange Trip, Dennis McNally mentions
this show as being from the Fillmore East, 11/16/70.
8) Finally, the 7" reels, from which all previously circulating copies
were made, are labeled (albeit misdated) "Fillmore Nov 2, 70". Therefore,
the misnomer "Anderson Theater, 11/23/70" must have occurred sometime
after the tapes entered circulation in 1973. It should be noted that the
Grateful Dead did perform at the Anderson Theater on 11/23/70, however,
no verified recordings of that event apparently circulate.
The order in which the songs occur has often been confused throughout
the years. Breaks do occur in the recording so it cannot be said with
absolute certainty that the order is correct. However, the current order
is taken directly from the first generation 10" reel, making the
likelihood of rearrangement negligible. If anything, any re-ordering
occurred subsequent to its release into circulation in 1973. The placement
of Elton John's recording of Honky Tonk Women played over the house
P.A. after only two songs remains a mystery. There is also an AUD
fragment from 11/16/70 of Good Lovin' with Jorma, Jack and
Papa John Creach sitting in. Exactly where this jam fits in is not known.
Clearly, the music we have does not represent the entire show.
Precisely what guest musicians appear in this recording and which tunes
they play on may never be known. Any further intelligence on the matter
would most certainly be welcome. Steve Winwood took over Pigpen's Hammond
organ beginning with Hard To Handle and he can clearly be heard through
the end of Not Fade Away. Will Scarlet from Hot Tuna plays harp and his
playing is evident during Big Railroad Blues, Truckin'>The Other One and
Uncle John's Band. Three separate cheers arise from the crowd prior to
Hard To Handle; the second of which is for Steve Winwood's arrival on
stage. Who or what precipitated the other two cheers is impossible to
tell. In the process of deciding what to play prior to the commencement
of Mama Tried, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir can be heard to say, "What songs do
you guys know?" "Yeah, you guys name a tune." From this we can deduce that
at least two other guest musicians were present on stage, however none of
them can be discerned in the Mama Tried that follows. Other than
Will Scarlet's harp work during Truckin'>The Other One and Uncle John's Band,
an organ can be heard in the first few minutes of Truckin', but then
mysteriously vanishes from the mix.
This new transfer represents a significant upgrade to all previously
circulating versions. It is a direct A>D transfer from the original,
first generation 10" ? track reels, as opposed to the 7" reels which
Bill Gadsden originally copied in 1973; and again transferred A>D via
Alesis Masterlink in 2000. The 7" reels are one, if not two, generations
further removed from the 10" first generation source. Thanks to
Bill Gadsden who diligently researched the accuracy of the actual venue
& date of this show as Fillmore East 11/16/70 and sourced out the first
It is my conviction that the myth of this show having taken place at the
Anderson Theater on 11/23/70 can now firmly be put to rest. If anyone can
offer factual evidence to the contrary, please contact me. Most of all
please enjoy this all-time classic show!
