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.

Notes/Comments from the original uploader:
– This is quite a nice recording of what may be the best JGB show of the 1980s. Really nice mix of songs, lots of great energy including a major highlight, one of the all-
time performances of Don’t Let Go. Wonderful stuff.
– If you know Danny Lucian, please contact him and let’s get this master digitized!
– There were a fair number of warts, which I tried my best to eliminate using SF Studio 6.0. Some remain, including but possibly not limited to those listed below.
– d1t02 Cats tick @ 2:52
– d1t05 Run for the Roses R-channel static @ 1:50 patched over from L channel
– d1t06 Stoned Me light pop @ 0:07
– d2t02 Evangeline bad phasing @ start, pop and brief splice @ 0:09, tick @ 1:50, skip @ 1:51
– d2t06 Lucky Ol’ Sun clips in, some muffling/phasing @ start

Thanks to Jim Powell for the source CDs!

Source Notes
This is the VLS Version of the Van Morrison Winterland Show, it is not an upgrade or a remaster. It represents an audio cleaning of the original VHS files that were converted to DVD LPCM sound files and then tweaked with Audiology and Roxio Sound Wave to give the sound a much richer audio. You must remember the source and also take this for what it is on face value, a good update of an early Van classic performance. This VLS version also includes some songs that were not available on the original CDR versions of this show

FIXES
Flaws that were fixed by happy jack with audacity
