1) Taking over on lead guitar is former Butterfield Blues Band guitarist Elvin Bishop; vocalist Wayne Ceballos from the band AUM also sits in.

2) After several minutes of getting the momentum up, Janis Joplin hits the stage during this “Lovelight.”

3-4) At the end of the first set of this evening, John Dawson and David Nelson from NRPS are invited out. Nelson plays acoustic guitar for "Cumberland Blues," with Dawson adding harmony vocals. Nelson then switched to mandolin, Garcia returned to acoustic, and they closed the set with another rarity, "Cold Jordan."

5) This unusual rendition of "Not Fade Away" finds Chris Wood and Steve Winwood on stage basically making up words as they go along.

6) As the Dead tuned up for their 2nd set on this 2nd night of their final Fillmore East run, Jerry Garcia announced that Duane Allman was going to join them for a few numbers.

7) It’s obvious there had been little rehearsal with the Beach Boys, but this free-for-all rendition of "Riot In Cell Block #9."

8) During one of the trippiest moments of an improvisation during "The Other One," David Crosby wandered onstage.

9) During one of their four 1975 shows, the Dead played 30 minutes of "Blues For Allah" with Merl Saunders joining them on organ.

10) The section following the jam out of "Truckin'" features percussionist Airto Moriera and improvisational vocalist Flora Purim adding their flavorings to the proceedings.

11 - 13) During Bill Graham's memorial concert in 1991, John Popper, John Fogerty, and Neil Young joined them on stage at different points during the day.
