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
