Comments Although this circulates labeled as "1/22/68 Eagles Aud", no documentary evidence (posters, reviews, newspaper ads, etc) has been found for shows there during the Quick and the Dead tour, other than the two on 1/26 and 1/27. Joe Jupille researched the University of Washington Daily and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer newspapers and only found an ad for QMS and the Dead on 1/26 and 1/27 in the 1/26/68 edition of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer (the weekend entertainment insert, p. 6). He turned up no mention of other Quick and the Dead shows at Eagles Auditorium. (1) With "Alligator running 'round my door" vocals and jamming. (2) First second or so of Cryptical is clipped off. No Drums intro to The Other One. (3) This has one of the early versions of The Other One lyrics: "I woke up this morning, my head was not in sight. I would ask the walls about it, but they vanished overnight. I could not think or spell my name, or fly there was no way. And the heat came round and busted me for smiling on a cloudy day. Skipping through the lilly fields, when I came across an empty space. It quivered and exploded, left a bus stop in its place. The bus came by and I got on, that's when it all began. There was Cowboy Neal, at the wheel, of a bus to never-ever land." ends at 4:16. Reel filps in Born Cross-Eyed and Caution. Sound quality is lower after the filp in Caution. Listing is based on the newest and most complete circulating copy. Several different incomplete copies previously circulated.
Recordings 74 SB (most complete version), FM-SB GDH #337 and GDH #343 (Alligator only for both GDH shows)
