AT CHICAGO’S AUDITORIUM THEATRE FALL 1971
The songs are a blend of old, still-recent (from Workingman’s Dead on) and brand-new (“Tennessee Jed,” “Jack Straw,” “Mexicali Blues,” “Ramble On Rose,” “Comes A Time,” “One More Saturday Night”). Disc Two features a truly stellar, 29-minute version of “That’s It for the Other One,” and Disc Three (from 10/21), includes a spectacular rendition of “Dark Star,” which is split by a spirited romp through “Sitting on Top of the World.”
The 3-CD set has been mastered to HDCD specs by Jeffrey Norman from the original vault reels, and the eco-friendly Digipak includes a booklet with an essay by Blair Jackson about the show, and photos of the interior of Chicago’s historic Auditorium Theatre.
