There were at least Three different audio edits of this material used over three different
audio/video edits of the Acid Test Video. Each one had audio not available on the other
versions. I spent a couple weeks carefully tracking all the seperate edits and tracking them.
I used the first release as the main audio. It sounded the best quality to me. Source two was
mono (for unknown reasons), but you will notice audio not available on the other two versions.
Version three had the most overdubs of segments played on top of others, but still had a few
snippets worth adding to this collection. Removing all the duplicate music tracks, here’s everything
that was worth saving from each version. Everything fits on one CDR, but it would be great of someone
could try to edit them together with better audio editing software than I have to work with.

Someone should try to use upgrade the audio to the film Sunshine Daydream with this Stereo version of I’m A King Bee!

    The 8th song, previously notated as “unknown instrumental” on Deadlists, is a cover of Freddy King’s “Heads Up.” The 9th tune, previously listed as “The Same Thing (instrumental),” is definitely NOT that song. Although it is a
    standard blues and sounds similar at the beginning, closer listening makes it pretty obvious that it is an entirely different song, title unknown. The Viola Lee Blues on this expanded version is a different version than on the
    previous three song version of Pico Acid Test. This is an ongoing mystery, although it should be said that both versions are worth having.

Recording Info:

Track 1: original November 1966 broadcast (incomplete):
Source: FM -> ?? -> Sorochty’s unknown gen cassette -> wav -> FLAC

Track 2: early 1967 rebroadcast (compete):
Source: Tom Ordon’s Master FM reel -> 1st gen Hi-Fi VHS -> wav -> FLAC

This torrent contains two copies of an interview from 1966.

The first file is an incomplete copy of the original November 1966 broadcast. This commonly circulated on cassette. The source for the digital file is Dave Sorochty’s unknown gen cassette.

The second file is a complete copy of the early 1967 rebroadcast of the same interview. This never circulated on cassette. The source for the digital file is a 1st gen Hi-Fi VHS (audio only) copy of
Tom’s master.

Near the end of the interview they say they will be playing at the Fillmore with James Cotton the “weekend after this”. That is a reference to the concerts they played with the James Cotton Blues Band and Lothar and the Hand People on November 18-20, 1966. The interview probably took place between Monday November 7th and Thursday the 10th.

2nd Gen. sbd

there was some great Blues stuff uploaded here recently,
but 60¥s Black roots stuff was sadly missed here, recently……

Since noboy else posted it yet,
so here¥s my favorite tape from Muddy Waters and his Bluesband:

Cambridge, MA. Club 47 Aug.24.1966
A real wild and hot performance by Muddy and his Allstar Band, feat. ,among others:
— Otis Spann,
one of my alltime favorites in Blues! His piano playing and singing is outstanding in this
performance, as usual! He even managed to add a nice new dimension to “Johnny B. Goode “
played in this performance! He was with Muddy since the midfifties………….
Check out his Albums w/Fleetwood Mac(eg. “Biggest thing since Colossos”, he made more than 15 great
soloalbums, they¥re all great!)
— George ” Harmonica” Smith
One of the great harp players in Blues! He released some superp albums in the late sixties,
probably his best on ” Blue Horizon” Label, w/ a white US Blues Band called ” Beacon Fat”
(“Grease one for me”), and also a solo album w/Beacon Fat as side man (“No time for Jive”).
Rod Piazza,one of the great white harp players, was a member of ” Beacon Fat”!

This recording is the only docomented complete sixties performance, of one of the usual shows,
Muddy Waters played these days, as far as I know!
A rare chance to recognize, how things happened in the 60¥s.
Muddy played only on about half of the tracks , his Bandmates fronted their solo stuff on the other half of the performance…..

Although this tape is usually traded as a sbd, it was recorded, in my opinion, w/ 2 mics hangin¥over the stage!
So the overall sound is a mixture between sbd and great audience and very listenable!
Some mixin¥ probs in the beginning, which soon were fixed !
MP3 sample below!
A very unusual performance with some incredible playing by the boys,
not the usual live stuff, but great!
