Recording

In July 1976 the Grateful Dead played a six-show, seven-night concert run at the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco. The shows were promoted by Bill Graham. The final show of the run, on Sunday, July 18, was broadcast by KSAN radio. Each audience member was provided with a glass of champagne, used for a surprise toast to the band at the beginning of the concert.

At the July 17 concert, vocalist Donna Jean Godchaux was absent from the second set.

Sites that archive information about Grateful Dead concerts break down track 1 on the bonus disk into two songs. "Playing in the Band" occupies the first three minutes or so, and is followed by "Stronger than Dirt" for about twelve minutes. The latter is the first section of an instrumental suite called "King Solomon's Marbles" which appears on the Blues for Allah album. This concert is well-known as the last of the five times that the band played "Stronger than Dirt".
