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!

Clementine Practise Session

Source: sbd > 7 inch Master Reel @ 7.5ips 1/2 track > dat(48k)

01 Clementine (many takes)
02 Clementine (several takes, a couple with vocals by Phil)
03 Space like jam with some improvised vocals

Notes from the original uploader:

– This version has been provided by an anonymous source.
– The date on the tape is 09/12/69 but it is almost certainly 1968. *

The tapers section at dead.net for the w.e. 23 September says:

Going back a few years, we are pleased to play a couple of jams from 9/21/68. This material is drawn from a very interesting tape, in that it features Phil, Jerry and Mickey, plus a couple of guest musicians, in a studio jam right in the midst of the period in which the Mickey and the Hartbeats shows were being performed without Bobby and Pigpen. From this studio session, we have a nice Clementine Jam and another very interesting Jam.

Unfortunately the link is dead so we can’t compare it at this time.

– After the jam Garcia says “Was it wierd, did you like it?”
