Three Part Jam
from Jelly) It's basically a series of extended jams with familiar riffs
and lyrics plus improvisation. I don't recognize Phil Lesh's vocals
on it, and I don't think Haggerty sung much if at all.
This tape is often mis-labelled as Fairfax 5/17/75 My copy of 5/19 came
with a small repro of a handbill for the gig, which clearly states the
venue as River City, Fairfax, and the date as Mon. May 17th. A little
digging back by me finds it was indeed a Monday, so 5/19/76 is most
likely accurate. (This handbill/poster is also in the excellent "The
Art Of Rock" book.) Usually descriptions of the stuff played are the
done a listen through to the Touloos tapes, and picked out bits of vocals
(not all the vocal lines though) which may identify stuff, as well as
the odd riff.
It's very jam based; some of them are quite straightforward, some frequently
change tempo and feel, so I haven't tried to log all the "sounds" or
"feels" of them; similarly, I've only logged a couple of the guitar
solos. Hope this helps (and hope it doesn't make it sound too boring!).

"I was there, and other than being delighted to hear
Phil's trademark rumble paired with Haggerty's crazy
noodling, a highpoint of the show was the opening act,
who was none other than Father Guido Sarducci (Don
Novello) from Saturday Night Live. He did about a half
hour of standup, and sort of set the tone for an
evening of fun music that didn't take itself too seriously."
