Notes:
–this recording is in mono
–a heavy dosage of digital noise reduction was almost certainly applied to this
recording, probably just before the previous shn set was encoded.
–Bill Kreutzman was absent for this show due to sickness, leaving Mickey Hart as the
sole drummer

notes
-This source is 81+ minutes. It is tracked for two shorter cdrs, but longer media, ie. 90 min cdrs or overburn can make this a
\one disc source.
-the only similar source at etree, shnid12618 is 1:14:23.960 (196860636 samples)in length, this source is 1:21:39.680 (216075888 samples)
in length. I did not deduce what was missing because upon inspection i found the tracks for that shnid range from 64 kiBs mp3 to 177kiBs
OGG, both lossy formats.
-this was confirmed, infact, to be 11 6 1968 by respectable traders.
-Thank Todd Evans for being a grate trader!

This is a restoration/rework using shnid 18100 (Cotsman) and 09580 (Axelrod).

shnID 18100 provides all the tracks except the majority of track 10 which is
from 09580 and was not on 18100.

2. Cryptical Envelopment–>
3. The Other One–>*
4. Cryptical Envelopment–>
5. New Potato Caboose%//

7. //Alligator–>**
8. Drums–>**
9. Alligator//(–>)**
10. //Caution/–>
11. Feedback–>
12. And We Bid You Goodnight

*Nice Woo-Hoo before the first verse (about 7 minutes in)
**Is the messy portion (tracks 6-9).

The Original Notes from 18100:
Caveat:
–From 0:36 in New Potato through the Alligator reprise, the quality drops off severely
due to extremely low recording levels. Edits were made to raise the volume and reduce
the hiss levels, which dominated the barely audible music. This portion was taken
from the J. Powell/J. Barnes SHN seed and patched into a different SBD>MR>C>D>CD source
—a source that has somewhat more noticeable hiss, though there are no significant
raspy distortions that can be noticed on the MSR>R>D>CD source.
–splice in New Potato at 0:36 (where the quality severely drops)
–most of New Potato is missing
–Alligator cuts in with a minute or two missing
–there are probably a number of minutes missing after the Alligator reprise.

Notes from original uploader:

This is another Muddy show I got as part of a large, multi-show folder at a now defunct, hobgoblin of a tracker. Many of these shows seem to be lightly circulated, mostly via etree trades, and I’ve not seen them on BT trackers. If you have seen them torrented before, I’d like to hear about it, please leave a comment. I’ve split these shows into seperate folders, and I’ve renamed files and added checksums and a new info text for each. Original info and EAC text files are included.

The following is a note on track 05 from this show’s listing at db.etree.org:
“still trying to figure out correct title – it’s Muddy’s hybrid of the Eddie Boyd ‘Look Over Yonder Wall’ and Howlin’ Wolf’s ‘Mr Highway Man’.” I will add the the “Mr. Highway Man” line was lifted by Wolf from Robert Johnson’s “Terraplane Blues”, and there are also elements of a song called “Highway 51”, not sure who wrote it, but I’ve seen it recorded by Bob Dylan and by “Spider” John Koerner. Otis Spann records this song as “Look Under My Bed,” onhis 1968/9 recording for Pete Welding’s Testament label. You’ll also hear some saxaphone before and during track 05, this appears to be an unsolicited contribution from an audience member.
