Introducing the set, Jerry says that Billy has been delayed somewhere and that meanwhile "Bobby and I are going to regale you with some old standards ... while we're waiting around." Monkey & The Engineer through Uncle John's Band are acoustic (the whole times 38:36), and Billy makes his appearance -- "There he is!" -- immediately afterward. The next scrap of tape is the Drums soundchecking, and then the electric set follows. Probably this was all one set, with a pause of a few minutes after Uncle John to clear the acoustic mics and get the entire band on stage.

Before All Around This World Jerry answers a request from the audience: "Hey it's not my fault if you watch TV, man. I know lots of people who don't watch any TV at all."
"it's got no signs, or dividing lines, and very few rules to guide"
