Not sure what's up with the other one. It has an interview in French where they talk about the Grateful Dead (just listened to the first like 45 seconds) and they definitely mention the name of the town. My guess is that it could be a radio broadcast? That could explain why some songs are different lengths, and other non-existent? Not sure why the order of the tracks would be jumbled up, though?

From Garcia's 1971 Rolling Stone interview:
What was France like?
"It was beautiful. We went there to do a big festival, a free festival that they were gonna have. Bill Hamm came over from France - these people had brought him over to get him to talk to us, to get us to go there on the following weekend. So we thought, wow, a week's notice - let's go to France for the weekend. And play this free festival. They were ready to take us over there and have us stay and everything, for nothing. So we would be going over and not charging anybody.
We went over but the festival rained out; it flooded. We stayed at this little chateau which is owned by a French film-score composer who has a 16-track recording studio built into the chateau; and this is a chateau that Chopin once lived in, really old, just delightful, out in the country near the town of Auvers, which is where Vincent Van Gogh is buried...
We were there with nothing to do: France, a 16-track recording studio upstairs, all our gear, ready to play, and nothing to do. So - we decided to play at the chateau itself, out in the back, in the grass, with a swimming pool; just play off into the hills. We didn't even play to hippies, we played to a handful of townspeople in Auvers; and the guy who owns the chateau, who's like a courtly gentleman, perfect host, beautiful French meals every day. And we played and the people came - the chief of police, the fire department, just everybody. It was an event, and everybody just had a hell of a time. Got drunk and fell in the pool. It was great. They have the tape. We made a lot of friends over there."

Wow, how the hell did I miss this thread?? Noted for later review!!
The photos above remind me that I have a very unique Jerry picture I have to scan and post. I was seeing some band a number of years ago in Chicago, and I struck up a conversation with a nice, heady couple. They showed me this photo taken by a friend, of Jerry having breakfast in, I believe, a hotel rooftop garden in Chicago on the morning of the last show at Soldier Field. He looked happy and was hamming it up for the camera. It's just a print from a PC, but it has occupied a place of honor on the cover of my old song binder ever since.
Makes me smile just thinking about it. I really need to scan and post it.
