Not the sound of his amp mic'd, but the actual sound coming from his rig at close proximity. What I can say is that it's a thicker, warmer, fuller sound than what most of us hear from Jerry that typically came to us thru a Sennheiser 421 inches from the voice coil and metal dustcap. This sound is chunky and fat and full of "gut".

Would this be The Stone SF 03/07/80 by any chance?
Great show for Jerry scholars. He is LOUD!
know a site where I can dl that?

Better yet would be 3/8/80 with that insane E.Rigby jam! Plus it would be kinda cool to know if he was still playing the Mesa preamp at these two SF shows. He is known to have used the Mark IIA for the east coast JGB tour the previous month, and a pic from the following Grateful Dead show on 3/31 shows the dual Twins, so these two nights (plus the Keystone shows at the end of March that I have never heard) are a small grey area in between... sounds like the Mesa to me though.

At Dead shows I usually sat on the sides, halfway up. Once, back in the 70's, I wanted to get up close on the floor. My ears couldn't take it, they were completely "overdriven" and clipped. Sounded horrible. I never went back up close after that.
