According to The Jerry Site, Jim Nelson replaces

This material is pretty amazing, at times positively
hair-raising.

    Thanks for the fix Mat. As soon as I read about these shows being put in circulation, I knew exactly where I’d be looking for them. You are the man that links us to these shows and your efforts are fully appreciated. From what I’m seeing in the comments here I can’t wait to start listening to this show.

    Hi Mat — Thanks for this one but I am having problems with the mp3 download – song order off and some tracks will not download – says ‘download grabber failed’ — maybe on my end………?

    Anyone else having problems?

    Tom, when did you last try it. I’ve had to reupload this a couple of times due to me screwing stuff up. Would you mind trying it again now? Then let me know exactly what happens.

    I had no trouble down loading it but the MP3 file ends with Road Runner. Mystery Train and Dixie are not part of the MP3 file. And Tom is correct, the song list differs from what you’ve typed onto your blog (Think is actually Bossa Nova, two tunes are labeled Freedom Jazz Dance and two are labeled jam and it’s hard to piece together where they belong in the list because the song numbering has two #3’s and two #4’s. The sound is great though!
