Notes:
Between songs there is some sort of
“matrix switch” to audience, but when next
song starts it switches back to soundboard.
Most circulating copies have this “matrix switch”
cut out and replaced with annoying fades in and out.

COMMENTS At 3:56 into the Drums after Alligator, they start singing Alligator vocals and at 4:35 in to it, Jerry joins in with a Caution type solo. Although this fragment circulates as “Fall 1968”, “3/22/68 Detroit”, and “May 1968”, it is from an unlabeled reel. There is an entry for this set list on p. 164 of Volume 1 of The Deadhead’s Taping Compendium. According to Rob Eaton: “There were 5 unlabeled 7 inch reels found in the Vault many years ago. Several contained very early versions of Stephen. The tape you describe is one of these unknown reels. The best estimate for a date would be April/May 1968 or spring ’68.”

SET1

01. [31:19]Jam

DEADLISTS COMMENTS

” The tapes circulating with this date are from a “Heartbeats” show, without
Bobby and Pigpen. (1) with Harvey Mandel (and George Chambers?). 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 Garcia jamming with the Harvey Mandel Band.

This show is not listed in DeadBase XI.

RECORDING
SBD 31 mins.

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.
