Notes from the original uploader:

Thelma Theater, Los Angeles, December 10, 11 & 12, 1969

Copies from the soundboard reels of these shows have circulated since the ’70s, sometimes mislabled “Kaleidoscope Theater, LA,” often with dates and sequences mixed up, usually in badly degraded sound quality. This set assembles complete copies of the 11th and the 12th in the best quality circulating. Except for the middle portion of the 11th, sound is excellent throughout; this inferior segment is listenable while leaving definite room for improvement if an upgrade shows up; we haven’t been able to find one & don’t want to delay further.

Many people gave help on the way to creating this set of CDs. Dave Greenberg did the final masters. Jack Warner was instrumental in providing the difficult composite for the 2nd disc of 12/11/69, which was first mastered by Scott Clugston. RB, KW, JN and HB also provided important assistance. Jim Powell instigated the project and writes these notes. SHN conversion by Jay Gerland.

Tracking notes:
This fileset came with an additional track, d1t13. This track was an additonal copy of Hard to Handle. The checksum signature for this track matched the earlier Cotsman source, d1t13 Hard to Handle (shnid=8997). It appears the database admins elimated the additional track from the
md5 & st5 listings. I did not include this additonal track in this copy.

The orginal text file listed two additioanl tracks on disc 3 which are not present on this fileset. It turns out the original creater broke up Good Lovin’as follows in the text file:
d3t02 – Good Lovin’ >
d3t03 – Drums >
d3t04 – Good Lovin’
In reality Good Lovin’ was contained on just one track, d3t02. I renamed the tracks properly, no music is missing.
