notes:

– d1, I removed most of the dead air as quite frankly, it was an annoyance. boosted level by 4.48 decibels in right channel. a small section was cut from the start of d1t03, where there was distortion. hiss reduction was applied throughout.
– d2, t02 a number of volume adjustments in both channels, t03 some volume adjustments in first 2:13 minutes, t07 boosted both channel by 3 decibels. t08 boosted right chaneel by 2 decibels. closed several small gaps between t05 & t06. hiss reduction applied throughout
– a few miscellaneous clicks removed
– final mastering with iZotope Ozone

comments from Deadlists Project:

This is Crosby, Garcia, Lesh & Hart, sometimes known as David And The Dorks. SET 1 is an afternoon rehearsal and soundcheck. SET 2 is the live set.

Jerry Garcia & Friends were advertised at the Matrix on December 15, 16 & 17. In the pause after the snatch of Eight Miles High vocals rehearsal Crosby is heard asking someone to “put limiters on it. I overblew their mics last night.” The comment implies he’s talking on the second night of the run, which would make this the 16th rather than the 15th; however, these tapes have always circulated dated “12/15/70.”

The first four tunes are all Crosby’s. The Jam out of Triad is choice. Bertha is a very early version with a few bungled lyrics. Deep Elem Blues is a unique arrangement heavily influenced by Crosby’s rhythm guitar.

Original Uploader Matt’s notes:

Of course this is mere speculation but… This show is comprised of 3 diff. reels. The GD set is on the High Country reel, another reel is listed as 7-30-70 and the third, 4-30-70. Obviously the GD part and the 7-30-70 go together but I beleive the 4-30-70 is the second half of the New riders show. the mix is the same and all the songs are different and back then there were certain tunes they always played every show. Another reason is if they actually played on 4-30 then that would mean they would have a gig the next night in New York opening for the Dead! My guess is that the bill was listed as a New Riders with a few GD members there who just wanted to practice a few new tunes in the beginning of the night then let the New Riders play the rest. Let the debate begin!!

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.?

JJ
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.

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
