notes from the original uploader:

– d1, I removed most of the dead air as quite frankly, it was an annoyance. boosted level by 4.48 decibels in right channel. a small section was cut from the start of d1t03, where there was distortion. hiss reduction was applied throughout.
– d2, t02 a number of volume adjustments in both channels, t03 some volume adjustments in first 2:13 minutes, t07 boosted both channel by 3 decibels. t08 boosted right chaneel by 2 decibels. closed several small gaps between t05 & t06. hiss reduction applied throughout
– a few miscellaneous clicks removed
– final mastering with iZotope Ozone

comments from Deadlists Project:

This is Crosby, Garcia, Lesh & Hart, sometimes known as David And The Dorks. SET 1 is an afternoon rehearsal and soundcheck. SET 2 is the live set.

Jerry Garcia & Friends were advertised at the Matrix on December 15, 16 & 17. In the pause after the snatch of Eight Miles High vocals rehearsal Crosby is heard asking someone to “put limiters on it. I overblew their mics last night.” The comment implies he’s talking on the second night of the run, which would make this the 16th rather than the 15th; however, these tapes have always circulated dated “12/15/70.”

The first four tunes are all Crosby’s. The Jam out of Triad is choice. Bertha is a very early version with a few bungled lyrics. Deep Elem Blues is a unique arrangement heavily influenced by Crosby’s rhythm guitar.

  1. Thank you, this was such a wonderful time of collaborating young hippies. This and PERRO remind me of the fellowship of musicianship during those daze. Thanks again for an update.
