Thanks to Stormyrider for sending this to me. Now to pass it on.

Will burn one for the first 3 to post here & send PM with an address.

Thanks to harvey for posting this information:

Here are the known facts about this recording .....

05/??/70 @ Georgian Terrace Hotel Ballroom – Atlanta (1 disc - partial)
{CaptSkipper Remaster – “Peach Cobbler 6”}

Currently, there is only the final tune from the main set (Mountain Jam) and the encore (Don’t Want You No More / It’s Not My Cross To Bear) available. It is hoped that the rest of the show will be transcribed from analogue tape to digital and remastered by Skip at sometime in the future. This is a contender for the best version of “Mountain Jam” by the original band, played with dynamic enthusiasm, and I eagerly look forward to being able to hear the rest of this show, the full track listing of which is as follows:

Intro
Statesboro Blues > Jam
Trouble No More
Every Hungry Woman
Dimples
Elizabeth Reed
Outskirts of Town
Whipping Post
Mountain Jam

Don’t Want You No More >
It’s Not My Cross To Bear

For those interested in the basic background behind this recording, the following are a few snippets of quotes by Ann Sandlin:

The tape with the show was discovered in a trunk along with a number of other historically interesting tapes Johnny had long thought were stolen when our garage was cleaned out several years ago. It took a while before we even listened to the tapes and then a while longer before Johnny transferred the Mountain Jam to DAT.

It wasn't long after the music was transferred that a copy of the DAT was given to KW with the caveat he had to promise to not try to do anything with it. Johnny didn't think it would be anything Polygram would be interested in, but he felt honor bound to offer it to them in hopes the band and Berry and Duane's heirs would benefit from any sales. Polygram wasn't interested and the tape sat in our safe for a few more years.

After the record company passed, Johnny was all for releasing it for trading, however the original quality of the tape wasn't very good. When Skip offered his mastering services if we ever needed them, we sent him the Mountain Jam. Skip worked on it for several weeks before he felt it was ready to go and now, it's finally out there for everyone to enjoy.

At the time Skip was working on the CD we were trying to figure out where (and when) it was recorded. The box had Atlanta written on it and after doing some research Skip came up with the date listed on the album (5/23/70). Since the CD has been released and listened to, Johnny remembered the tape had been recorded at Alex Cooley's Ballroom.

I talked more with Johnny and got some additional information he remembered....sometimes he has no idea what he knows until I drag it out of him....but the tape for certain was recorded in Atlanta at an event promoted by Alex Cooley. I don't know who recorded it, but Duane got it to Johnny to keep.

The date on the original “Peach Cobbler 6” has since been proved to be wrong, it is still not known what the correct date is, but the general consensus due to the development level of the Mountain Jam is that it is from spring 1970, probably May. One thing that has been verified is the venue, which is the Ballroom at the Georgian Terrace Hotel in Atlanta.

Many thanks to Skip for his unending diligence in remastering this gem, to Ann for making sure this was available for us all to enjoy, to Johnny for keeping this treasure for us and of course to Duane who was absolutely on fire this night and surely must have realised what a wonderful recording it was that he was passing on to his friend.

When was the rest of this show released? Did Skipper work on the rest of the show besides MJ and DWYKN/NMCTB?

The "rest of the show" hasn't been released as of yet.
