  • According to engineer Bob Matthews, the album was recorded and mixed to simulate the sound presence of the Avalon Ballroom. According to Bear, the tapes were recorded "on a sixteen track Ampex MM-1000 2-inch professional recorder, with a split of the on stage mics going directly into the preamps of the tape machine, not through any mixing desk. This was my idea to reduce the amount of amplifiers the signal went through before being placed on tape. We had special preamps made for the machine to allow enough gain. This was arranged by Ron Wickersham who had worked for the professional audio recorder division of Ampex before becoming involved with the band in mid '68."

  • Mickey Hart plays guiro, scrapers, and gongs, among other percussion instruments, on "Dark Star".

  • At the shows used to create this album, Jerry Garcia played a cherry bodied Gibson SG, at times using a Vox Crybaby wah-wah pedal.
