Notes from The Midnight Cafe:

The notes on this are confusing. There were more songs played in the second set but none of these sources seem to include them. Some of the songs have been officially released so perhaps they were originally removed for that reason. But the notes don’t say. I think I have put them together in a manner that makes sense in terms of what is actually included. If you know more information please add a comment. If you have the full show and want to share it, please send me a message.

This is an upgrade of ATM 011-016 “Three Nights of Winter”, which
was used for the “official” release “3 Nights At Winterland”. The
sound of this compared to the 2nd Gen used for ATM 011-016 is
somewhat different. This version has more bass and it’s also
“dryer” in sound (less reverb) than the 2nd Gen version. An
earlier flawed version of this Set is also in circulation. That
Set, sometimes also known as “Winterland Raw Source” and “A Raw
Winter”, suffers from index clicks, DAT clicks and buzzes all
throughout, and was “leaked” to the general public by a mistake.
The Clean version (this) has 9 tracks on Disc 4 (11.10.68/2nd
Show), while the flawed version only has 8 (same amount of music,
just one less index mark).

The more than six hours of live music assembled here gives
Hendrix fans the first opportunity to compare The Experienceís
live performances. 2-performances per night for 3-days recorded
during the bandís temporary residence at San Franciscoís Winter-
land arena. Given that these recordings have been assembled from
a variety of different sources, the sound quality, with exception
of the last 3 tracks on Disc 3, which, as the soundboard tape had
mysteriously stopped running, have been taken from a less-than
perfect audience recording is excellent, and as usual, Jimiís
virtuoso delivery is as varied and unpredictable as ever, as are
the technical problems which were invariably the sub-text of the
majority of Hendrix concerts.

Notes from the original uploader:

I asked Michael Parrish for a copy of the mystery fragment reviewed in the taping compendium. This tape also included another fragment not reviewed in the compendium and was labeled 11 1 68, which is most likely incorrect.

* Here?s what Parrish supplied for source / lineage info: ?Both of these pieces came in a cassette that Dwork sent me near the beginning of the compendium project. As I noted, track #2 corresponds to the first track of your “Mystery Disc” and I have never heard the other piece anywhere other than on the Dwork tape. It rang no bells with Dick L. either.?

^ ?The fragment I sent you as ?11/1/68? is the same as the first track on your Mystery Show CD. I wouldn’t necessarily bet that either is 11/1/68 though:)?

Review by Michael Parrish: ?This mysterious fragment consists of another version of the jam that opens 10/30/68. It is notable for Garcia?s inspired and frenetic soloing, which has a rather unusual Latin feel.?

first Jam has some Cold Rain & Snow & GDTRFB flavor to it
second jam starts with Dark Star flavor

track 02 is 12/16/68

COMMENTS Not listed in DeadBase XI. The tapes circulating with this date are Jerry Garcia with Harvey Mandel (guitarist who played with Charlie Musselwhite and in Canned Heat), Stephen Miller (keyboards player from Linn County, Harvey Mandel’s Band, Elvin Bishop’s band, and The Allman Brothers Band).

Some tapes list this as also with Elvin Bishop on guitar. Unknown drummer(s). Miller may be the person singing on Feel It (title song for Elvin Bishop’s second album), Three O’Clock In The Morning, and Mojo Woker. The jam after Mojo Worker or one of the unknown songs may be “Wade In The Water”. The newspaper ads mention Jack Casady (bass player in Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna) so perhaps he is the bass player, but some tapes list George Chambers (bass player for The Chamber Brothers).

This jam has previously circulated as “Set 3” of 12/16/68, but Bill Gadsden says that it’s “with Harvey Mandel from 12/24/68”. From the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper of Monday December 23, 1968 pg 35: “At the Matrix
tonight and tomorrow night: Jerry Garcia, Jack Casady, open end jam, no door charge” and elsewhere on the same page under the heading “OPENING TODAY”: “ROCK CLUB – Jam Session with Jerry Garcia, Jack Cassady and others, from 9:30 p.m., the Matrix, 3138 Fillmore. Free.” On page 26 of issue #34 (Summer 1996) of Dupree’s Diamond News, Dick Latvala stated in an interview “There are tapes of 12/16/68 marked Hartbeats at the Matrix, but I don’t know if that’s really accurate. You know [David] Crosby was playing with them quite a lot that month.”

He makes no other mention of 12/68 Matrix tapes in that article, but he has
stated on another occasion that the tapes in the vault of 12/24/68 are labeled as Jerry Garcia and the Harvey Mandel Band.

RECORDING SB 80 mins. Most circulating recordings of the 1968 Matrix shows
trace back to Bill Gadsden’s reels. Bill and Peter Kafer made copies of Peter
Abram’s (owner of the Matrix) two track 7″ Scotch reels in the summer of 1974. Peter Abram’s reels were either Masters or 1st gens. Recently (5/02) circulating CDRs are reportedly MSR(vault)>1R>CDR.

Joni Mitchell
Live – Germany probably 1968 but possibly 1969. Its also not sure if this was recorded in Germany as there is no other indication Joni played Germany in 1968

“I got this as a CDR in a trade a few years back. It is supposed to have been recorded in Germany in 1968 or 1969 but I’ve never been able to confirm the details. If anyone could positively identify it I would be grateful.”

Now the first uploader of this show listed in Dimebot (from 2006), docruper writes:

“This is a mysterious but very high-quality recording of Joni in 1967, 1968, or 1969. Early Joni, featuring her beautiful 1960s voice and a recording that is astoundingly good–crisp, clear, no static, very little hiss.”

However, the size of docruper torrent file does not match puckoon’s.

Puckoon’s folder size matches up exactly with that of a file of a remaster by briggY added to DIME in late 2006 — and judging by the description, it sounds like it — but some of the briggY track times listed differ slightly (a further remaster?).

But just for the halibut, let’s get briggY with it…

total time 38:58

Days on tracker: 1,419
Last status: 905 times snatched

I noticed that this amazingly high-quality recording of an absolutely stunning solo performance had dropped off the tracker, so I decided to put it back — this is DEFINITELY one that everyone should have. Its origins are completely mysterious, though — it circulates as “Germany 1968”, but Joni didn’t play in Germany in 1968. During the intro to “Dr. Junk” she talks about her visit to Fort Bragg, Fayetteville, and since she first played Fayetteville on January 3rd, 1967 and again in May of that year, her remark that the visit was “about 2 years ago” suggests that this performance took place in 1969. I think the presence of “Dr Junk” in the setlist would argue against the show being far into that year, since it’s a throwaway song that didn’t stay in her repertoire for very long. The best guess, then, would be very early 1969, but where is more of problem — although perhaps it COULD be Germany (did she play there in 1969? the chronology has no record of any European dates between London Sep 1968 & London Jan 1970 — which can’t be right, surely?) — her phrase “my country’s capitol” in the “Roses Blue” preamble seems to refer to Washington DC rather than Ottawa, which places the performance outside of North America (and that song itself, though not an easy one to decipher, was probably written after the darker events of 1968 — the King & RFK assassinations, Chicago and the election of Nixon).

I was going to seed the show exactly as received via the JMDL hub — the same version upped here previously — but when I took a close look at the wav files I found SBEs — tiny ones, but they were there (as the lineage claims alignment was done, I imagine they’re historical). I went through and got rid of these manually, then decided to up the levels and shift the tracking just a little whilst I was in there. I also fixed a nasty little glitch right at the beginning and faked a less abrupt fade at the very end. There was no temptation to use any nr or eq as the sound quality is great. It’s an exercise in gilding the lily, but this particular lily was worth it.

lineage: SBD > ? > acousticharmonies Vine CDR > Wav (EAC secure mode) > Flac frontend (level 8, aligned & verified)
remaster: > WAV (SBEs manually fixed, tracking & levels adjusted, flaws at start & end fixed with ACL10) > WAV (fixed SBEs with TLH) > FLAC level 8

I have a theory – a theory that is mine. This is my theory… That this show took place before her first album, my favorite “Song To A Seagull,” was released in March of 1968.

For one, Joni never mentions that she has an album out at all. And the audience does not seem to get extra excited about the songs she plays off it.

Plus one, the only song she introduces that comes from that album, “Michael From Mountains…” Joni pauses a moment before starting up, but no one in the audience makes a single sound that resembles recognition.

Maybe the folkies there were just being cool. Maybe they were just jealous she had an album out and they didn’t. But then that is not cool.

I know for one if I knew, this here Mike, his heart would have at least just jumped for crying out loud for joy for just one mountainous moment.
