Greetings all. Question for those of you with Deadbase. The first bootleg I owned back in the day was the 4/28/71 show from the Fillmore East which had a super nasty Hard To Handle. I have the Fillmore compilation "Ladies and Gent..." which has Hard To Handle on it. Is it me, or is this not the Hard To Handle from the 28th? Did they play it on the 29th as well and that is the one on the compilation? I guess that is a few questions. Anyway, Jerry's tone is insane, SG in those days??

Anyway, if I am not crazy, and indeed there was a Hard To Handle on the 29th, does anyone have an mp3 of the 28th version.

I don't have that 'Ladies and Gentleman' disc, but I do have 4-27, 4-28 and 4-29-71. For me, the 4-27 Hard to Handle is the best, but YMMV. I actually have that track on my laptop, so I could get it to you somehow. My MP3 version is a shade under 14MB so we'd have to find a way to get it to you.

BTW--the April '71 Fillmore run ran from 4-25 thru 4-29 and they played HtH 4 of those 5 nights, if I'm not mistaken.

Thank you, Jack Straw.

Spoken well.

Thank you for reminding us of the principles that caused this all to happen.
