COMMENTS According to DeadBase X the following were played:
Mindbender, On The Road Again, She Belongs To Me, I'll Go Crazy, Can't Come Down, Death Don't Have No Mercy, Parchman Farm, Midnight Hour, The Only Time Is Now, Early Morning Rain, It's All Over Now Baby Blue. No confirmation of the above on any recordings can be found.

David Sorochty:
The It's A Sin [2:52] and Sick and Tired [3:34] which circulate dated as "1/7/66" are just a partial copy of the "11/29/66 Set 1" (AKA 2/23/66) tape. The actual date of the full tape is unknown. These may really be "5/19/66". See the explanation of this on the "2/23/66"setlist.


The fact that DeadBase has a list for 1/7/66 which includes those two songs (in that order) is probably the reason for all the confusion in the first place. The 1/7/66 list has been in there since the first edition or two, but I don't know where they got it from.
Teddy GoodBear:
(See 1/15/66 - "Portland Acid Test" for more of Bear's comments). His comments were made off the top of his head & therefore may not be accurate.
Owsley "Bear" Stanley:
There were only two Matrix shows, one in Dec '65, and the one before the Fillmore AT. The Matrix was a crummy little closet of a venue with barely enough room for 50 to 60 people to stand in, the big name bands didn't play there after they got up and known. The hall couldn't pay more than $100 for the act. They seldom had two acts/night and so far as I know never three. The Dead played there twice when they were unknown.
RECORDINGS 7 SB. The two songs listed circulate in SBD.

COMMENTS Fillmore Acid Test. This is a tape of the audio off of Ken Keasy's Acid Test video. It could be from a different date and several shows.
Transcribed by Teddy GoodBear:
Up at the Fillmore Auditorium, Ken Kesey's Acid Test event was in action when I got there around the middle of the evening. The people were like the backstage crowd at the California Hall dance (that the Airplane played the same night). The costumes were, wow! A strobe light was flickering at a very high frequency in one corner of the hall and a group of people were bouncing a golden balloon up and down in it. It was a most perturbing frequency.

In one corner there was a piece of metal, tubular sculpture by Ron Boise, a thumping machine. If you hit it, you got different sounds if you hit it in different places. There was a lot of electronic equipment which sent out a low reverberation that resonated throughout the hall. And the whole place was filled with streamers and balloons. There were TV cameras and a TV screen, and you could see yourself in it. Onstage there was a rock group; anybody could play with them. It was a kind of social jam session.

A guy in a white mechanic's suit with a black cross on the front, and on the back a sign saying 'Please Don't Believe in Magic', ran up and down all night. Oh wow! Periodically the lights went out and everybody cheered. Giant Frisbees, balloons like basketballs, acrobats, girls in felt eyelashes four inches long, people with eyes painted on their foreheads, glasses low on the nose with eyes painted on them, men with foxes on their shoulders! Wow! -- Michael Rossman (S.F. Chronicle, 1/66)

COMMENTS Portland Acid Test - day uncertain.
Teddy GoodBear:
Bear's comments were made off the top of his head & therefore may not be accurate.
Owsley "Bear" Stanley:
Portland acid test was either on Dec 18 '65, or Jan 15 '66. There were two which I didn't go to after my "initiation" at the Dec 11 Muir Beach event, one was in Palo Alto and the other one was in Portland. There were two before that also. Only one other one did I miss, the first one in LA in late Feb in Northridge. So I missed a total of five of the AT's. The Dead were always the centerpiece of the Acid Tests, the real reason for its existence, and it could not have taken place without them. The band at the time rated their participation above any other activity in importance.

Owsley later goes on to say:
I met the Dead formally at the Fillmore show on 11 Feb '66. The Northridge Acid Test was 19 Feb, the Sunset Blvd. test was 25 Feb. I was not at the Northridge Test. Watts was in March.

COMMENTS Trips Festival, As part of "The Acid Trip" - Other artist(s): Big Brother & The Holding Company.
Teddy GoodBear: By following what Jeff Tiedrich said (from ??/??/66):

"A mutual friend asked Dick Latvala if he could shed any additional light on the above material". (SEE ??/??/66 - circulates from GDH #388), "and Dick answered that this was from a (7") reel that came out of a box that was only labeled "Longshoreman's." No date or any other information."

I ask, could this "??/??/66" possibly be the same as this 1/22/66 show?
Ken Babbs (From 'Taping Compendium'):
We had this guy build us a soundboard; Buchla. He lived in San Francisco and he built us this thing called the Buchla Box. I think he worked on the Moog synthesizer. This guy was unbelievable. At the Trips Festival at Longshoreman's Hall [a venue with seats on all four sides of the floor], the weekend of January 22, 1966, he had ten speakers set up around there in the balcony.

He had this board in which he could run the sound around in circles. He would isolate one, and have sound wheeling around the room. He had this thing like a piano that was just flat and you ran your fingers across it and it would play the notes. Made it himself, absoulutely fantastic. He made up this box for us that was essentially a mixer and a mike amp and a speaker box and an earphone box.
Teddy GoodBear:
Bear's comments were made off the top of his head & therefore may not be accurate.
Owsley "Bear" Stanley:
The box labeled "Longshoreman's" would have been the shows we did with Loading Zone in late April 66, after the return to SF from LA.

The 10 minute soundboard that circulates as 1/26/66 and as 1/28/66 is a bogus compilation tape of I Know You Rider from 12/01/66 and Merry-Go-Round Broke Down tuning and Early Morning Rain from 11/29/66 sets 3 and 2 respectively. This was listed in early editions of DeadBase under 1/28/66, but has long since been removed. They must have figured that one out too."

Ken Babbs (From 'Taping Compendium'):
This was not an Acid Test. Those were much bigger gatherings. This was done as a record to play at your house. With earphones on. It was done with that in mind. It was not an Acid Test. It was just us in the studio, doing our thing.

Kesey and I and [fellow Merry Prankster] George [Foster] went in there and started laying this stuff down. The Grateful Dead had been playing the Haight down at the Straight Theater. They came down and showed up.

The real tragedy of all this is we must have been in there all night long, like six or eight hours. Jim the Host was responsible for editing down and mixing the session. But he took all the master tape and he made the tape that went into the record. Then those tapes got lost, destroyed, they're gone. And that guy's dead.

Stealin' jam (longer)
Stealin (vocals)
I Know You Rider (vocals)
Don't Ease Jam (13 times)
Don't Ease (vocals)

Cardboard Cowboy (vocals)
I Know You Rider Jam
I Know You Rider (vocals)
Cold Rain Jam (I counted 10 of these, but was doing other things so may have miscounted by one; my jcard says 9)
Cold Rain (vocals)

Steve McHenry: I don't hear any talking between tunes on any of these; that is, nobody's counting off the various takes. The only speaking that is real obvious is at the end of the final Cold Rain where Jerry very plainly yells, after a few seconds, 'shit!'.

COMMENTS Known as 'Watts Acid Test'. Circulates as 02/12/66, but is unknown. Also see 03/??/66. What is most famous about the Watts test, is the "Who Cares" woman.
Jeff Tiedrich:
David Gans edited 'Pigpen's Rap' and 'Schoolgirl>You Don't Love Me>Schoolgirl' together on GDH #388 (thus no splice) for the purposes of his broadcast. It should be noted that the date and location of the 'Pigpen Rap' is pure speculation. Dick Latvala informs us that the box and 7" reel from which this was taken is completely unlabelled.
Transcription:
The 'rap' starts with chattering and screaming in the background and Jerry (?) saying into the mike "Nobody Cares". You can hear Bobby and then Pigpen tells his 'story'. When Pig is done Bobby says "Someday Ron will take acid."
Owsley "Bear" Stanley:
The "Pigpen rap" that Gans took from an unlabeled box, with an intro from Jer "Nobody Cares" would have been an excerpt of a tape from the Watts Acid Test, or a show immediately after that gig. It is most likely, especially if there is a bunch of static on one channel (left I think), that it came from that Test. The Test, the third in LA, was in early March 1966.

Owsley later goes on to say:
This is absolutely the Watts Acid Test. There was a woman who Babbs was putting the mic onto who kept screaming "Who cares?" over and over at least a hundred times. I also think I recall the comment by Bobby on Pig's non acid-taking. There was a great Pig rap at that test, I would guess the tape was from the Prankster's tape machine.
Transcribed by Teddy GoodBear from 'The Taping Compendium':
According to Vault archivist Dick Latvala, the material here comes from two different seven-inch reel boxes, the Pigpen rap in an unlabeled one, the other marked "Longshoreman's #1," with no other information. The intriguing thing is that both tapes have identical ambiences, and Bobby's comment has the same ambience and feel as the segment with Pigpen's rap.
RECORDINGS (?) FM. This segment was aired on David Gans's 'Grateful Dead Hour' #388 and circulates in FM-SBD.

David Sorochty:
The full tape is kind of a loop, with the same exact version of 'Sick And Tired' on it twice. The second time it fades out. I believe that 'It's A Sin' and 'Sick And Tired' which also circulate separately are incorrectly identified as "1/7/66".

The fact that DeadBase has a list for "1/7/66" which includes It's A Sin and Sick And Tired (in that order) is probably the reason for all the confusion in the first place. The "1/7/66" list has been in there since the first edition or two, but I don't know where they got it from.
Teddy GoodBear & David Sorochty:
SET1 Standing On The Corner [3:32] ; Mindbender [2:51] ; It Hurts Me Too [3:44] ; Viola Lee Blues [7:24] ; I Know You Rider [2:41] ; It's A Sin [2:55] ; Sick And Tired Sick and Tired [3:29]

We suspect due to the set list similarity that this might really be from the show that DeadBase X calls "5/19/66", a show that was not listed in any of their previous editions. See "5/19/66" for further explanation. DeadBase X also has "2/23/66" with this setlist as well as, (previous editions prior to DeadBase X), list it under "11/29/66".

Early Morning Rain and Cold Rain that circulate (as listed in DeadBase X) for this date are filler that do go with "11/29/66". See "11/29/66" for further explanation. Furthermore, DeadBase X footnotes -- "Previously listed under"11/29/66"."

COMMENTS Pico Acid Test.
David Sorochty:
The unknown jam in the 1st set sounds similar at times to You Don't Love Me, Hog For You Baby, Big Boy Pete, or even like Deep Elem Blues (the old way like on 12/1/66). This tape has apparently only recently (mid 1998) come into circulation.

Another tape has been in circulation for years dated 3/12/66 or 3/19/66 which contains Viola Lee Blues# (14.56), You See A Broken Heart (3.10), and Midnight Hour# (10.44). However this is not exactly a partial copy of 3/12/66. The versions of You See A Broken Heart and Midnight Hour# are the same as on the complete 3/12/66, but the Viola Lee Blues is definitely a different version. So hold onto those older tapes. The full 3/12/66 tape does not have that voice that cuts in after You See A Broken Heart that says "RAW". I can't tell who that is or how it got there.

David Dieterich:
Bobby talks about the funky P.A. which is making popping noises after It's A Sin and BIODTL. Lots of talk about the ice cream man outside after the 1st set ends (after Next Time).
RECORDINGS SB. Midnight Hour cuts off with a significant portion missing. This tape also circulates (incorrectly) as 3/19/66.

Transcribed by Teddy GoodBear:
Troupers Hall was the meeting room for a retired actor's club in Hollywood. The rent for the gig could'nt. have been much. We did everything ourselves, all in two days. We plastered handbills all over Hollywood. Stage decor was a few lengths of paisley cloth purchased that afternoon at a fabric store. For a box office, we had a card table and a cigar box.

Our not-quite-full house must have had over a hundred people; and when the night was over, our net take was $75. At 2 o'clock in the morning, we went to Cantor's Deli on Fairfax and spent it all on dinner for everybody -- with desert. -- Grateful Dead Family Album (page 43).

Adrian M. Johnson:
The caption lists this as "circa 1967"; the two other posters in "The Art Of Rock" from this venue are labelled as 1966. The poster for the Dead actually says "April 28 - March 2", hence my guess it should be 4/28 - 5/2. Information on the actual lifespans of the other groups or the venue which would help tie down the year would be welcomed. The artist (Michael Wood/Pyxis Studios).
Teddy GoodBear:
It's got to be '66, since we know for sure that on 4/29/67 the Dead were at "Earl Warren."
David Sorochty:
Well there are four most likely possibilities:

#1 Should say April 28 - May 2 and its 1967. This would conflict with other known shows.

#2 Should say April 28 - May 2 and its 1966. This is possible - there is a gap in the known shows for that time period. It would mean the run was from Thursday to Monday.

#3. Should say March 28 -April 2 and its 1967. This is possible - and this is what DeadBase has aparently assumed is the case. Maybe they have some other reason to believe that? That would mean that the run was from Tuesday to Sunday though.

#4 Should say March 28 -April 2 and its 1966. This is another possiblity. They were supposedly living in Los Angeles at the time, but it wouldn't conflict with the Los Angeles shows on the 6th through 9th announced from the stage by Phil at 3-25-66 or any others for that matter. It would mean more back and forth traveling is all and it would explain the gap between the 3-25-66 show and the ones Phil was reminding people about - as though he was reminding them they are going to be back in LA in two weeks. This would be a Monday thru Saturday and would match the scheduling pattern of Monday thru Satuday of the other acts at this venue. This would in fact fit right in between the other two runs at the Rock Garden shown on the other two posters.

Jeff Tiedrich:
A mutual friend asked Dick Latvala if he could shed any additional light on the above material and Dick answered that this was from a 7" reel that came out of a box that was only labeled "Longshoreman's." No date or any other information.
Transcribed by Teddy GoodBear from 'The Taping Compendium':
According to Vault archivist Dick Latvala, the material here comes from two different seven-inch reel boxes, the Pigpen rap in an unlabeled one, the other marked "Longshoreman's #1," with no other information. The intriguing thing is that both tapes have identical ambiences, and Bobby's comment has the same ambience and feel as the segment with Pigpen's rap.

The above setlists matches DeadBase X. Timings are from what DeadLists previously called "Set 1, 11/29/66" including Cream Puff War. Furthermore, DeadBase earlier editions prior to DeadBase X, also called "Set 1, 11/29/66".
David Sorochty & Teddy GoodBear as per "2/23/66":
Standing On The Corner, Mindbender, Hurts Me Too, Viola Lee Blues, I Know You Rider, It's A Sin and Sick And Tired - same order as "2/23/66" as listed in DeadBase X? If so, then we speculate that the right date is "5/19/66".
RECORDINGS 30 SB, assuming this is what DeadLists previously called 11/29/66; *otherwise* this does not circulate mid 1998. Cream Puff War cuts off with a significant portion missing.

COMMENTS Transcribed by Teddy GoodBear:
A rock & roll oasis just off Highway 101 in Navato, Rancho Olompali was where the Grateful Dead, the Diggers, the Angels, the Black Panthers and the San Francisco music scene went to dance after a head-banging week in the city. The Grateful Dead were each paid twenty-five dollars a week in those days and gigged wherever they could, often five days a week. An incredible freedom cruised through each day like a tide. The Jefferson Airplane, It's A Beautiful Day, Country Joe & The Fish, The Sons of Champlin, Quicksilver Messenger Service, The Charlatans, Big Brother & the Holding Company...

Weekend free-form celebrations of whatever anyone wished to celebrate, beginning in party clothes at the main house, ending naked in the sunshine by the pool. In addition to the Harley-scaled acreage, a huge outdoor oven cranked non-stop. It was the Diggers baking their daily bread to give away later in the park. As each participant got coated with flour, ghostly apparitions would leap from the oven to the pool, long hair flying in the wind. It was an easy scene for music and lovers, bands interwove and produced moments that were as high as they get. -- Grateful Dead Family Album (page 33).
Transcribed by Teddy GoodBear:
The Dead used to have some pretty good parties out at their place in the country, in Olompali. Two or three hundred people would come, and of course, most of them probably took LSD. This was around the time that a lot of new ground was being broken socially, and it seemed like a third to half the people at these parties would be naked, hanging around the pool. It was a great place. It was sort of a ranch estate that had a nice big house that looked kind of like Tara in 'Gone With The Wind'. Then there was a lot of land around it -- hills, a creek in the back, a big lawn and the pool. It was maybe 1000 feet off the highway, so it was fairly secluded.

In between the house and the pool the Dead would set up their equipment and play from time to time during the day. Usually there'd be members of other bands there too, like the Airplane and Quicksilver, and there'd be little jams with people who wanted to play. I remember that the Dead would be playing and Neal Cassady would be doing this strange little dance -- it was almost like breakdancing; very fluid. Out on the lawn there was this very far-out configuration of plumbing that was once part of a sprinkler system or something. It stuck out of the ground and stood maybe five feet high. I could'nt. figure out what the hell it was for. It was just a mess of pipes with faucets coming out of it that had been modified over the years. Very strange. So the Dead would be playing, and Neal would be dancing on the lawn with this bizarre metal partner. He'd dance around it, with it really. He had some pretty good moves, too. Neal was always in the thick of things.

Those parties -- I'm not sure how many of them there were -- were always on a nice afternoon. Everyone would play all day in the sunshine -- just doing everything -- and then when the sun would start to go down and it got cold, people would pack it in. By the time it was dark most people were gone, but there were always enough people who were either around to begin with or who wanted to stay, so that the party would continue inside. In fact, with the number of people hanging out there all the time, it was pretty much a party all the time anyway. I don't. know if it was 24 hours a day, but every time I was there it was going. -- George Hunter (The Golden Road). Grateful Dead Faimly Album (page 33).

David Sorochty: This circulates as 2/5/66, 6/??/66, as well as 7/??/66. The list in DeadBase X is incomplete. This tape consists of numerous renditions of most of the songs and they usually are without vocals. This is definitely from recording studio sessions since there is a take number spoken quietly before most of them. This is what is on my copy of the Scorpio Studios outtakes tape which came dated as 2/??/66:

Tape #1 - Side A
Stealin' takes 4 and 5
Stealin' take 6 (vocals)
I Know You Rider take 1 (vocals)
Don't Ease Me In takes 1 through 8
Don't Ease Me In takes 1 through 5
Don't Ease Me In take 6 (vocals)
Don't Ease Me In takes 7 and 8# (cut)
You Don't Have To Ask take 13
You Don't Have To Ask take 14 (vocals)
Tastebud take 1

Side B -
Tastebud take 2 (vocals)
Cardboard Cowboy takes 1 through 4
Cardboard Cowboy take 5 (vocals)
Stealin' take 1
I Know You Rider take 1
I Know You Rider take 2 (vocals)
Cold Rain And Snow (8 times with no take numbers announced)

Tape #2 - Side A
Cold Rain And Snow (no take number announced)
Cold Rain And Snow (vocals, no take number announced)
Cold Rain And Snow# (cut, no take number announced)

This also included the following on side A of the second tape:
1966 Studio (identified as possibly from the Scorpio sessions also) -
Lindy (vocals)
Alice D. Millionaire (vocals) (see the ??/??/66 listing for more information on those) as well as these obvious filler songs;
1969 studio - I'm A Lovin Man (Pigpen and Weir vocals, Garcia pedal steel & John Tenney on fiddle)
Instrumental (Bucky's Tune)

An edited version of this circulates as "2/5/66 Questing Beast Rehearsal".

Based on the list provided by Steve McHenry we can see that the differences are that the Questing Beast tape does not include:

a) takes 7 and 8# of Don't Ease Me In (both are instrumental versions)
b) Cardboard Cowboy (takes 1 through 4 without vocals)
c) Stealin' take 1 (instrumental)
d) Cold Rain And Snow# (the very last one)
e) the additional material that was identified as possibly being from the Scorpio recording sessions (Lindy, and Alice D. Millionaire)
f) the obvious filler material which was identified as being from 1969 -
(I'm A Lovin Man and the instrumental referred to as Bucky's Tune)

Steve's notes indicate that his Questing Beast tape has a brief You Don't Have To Ask which I have not noted on my full Scorpio tape. It is probably on the Scorpio tape and I just missed it. Steve has also reported that his tape does not have the take number spoken before each rendition as on the Scorpio tape. With the take numbers edited out and the filler removed in order to squeeze this all onto one tape, it might give the impression that this is a practice session.

COMMENTS Scorpio 45 RPM record. July 1966 release, but the actual date of the recording is more than likely sometime in June. See the above info listed under 6/??/66 and 2/5/66.
From 'Taping Compendium':
Gene Estribou had the first four-track in the San Francisco area, Buena Vista Studio, and here the Dead cut their first demo in June 1966. He was introduced to the Dead by photographer Herb Greene, when the band was playing in Palo Alto and Garcia still played bluegrass.
Gene Estribou:
First we had an Ampex three-channel instrumentation deck that Henry Jacobs brought into the studio. I had built a big horn and a studio and we had good condenser mikes and spent a lot of time optimizing the board. We went down to Western Recording and used their studio for doing some tapes that ended up being on the first 45 from Scorpio...

Michael Wanger:
Teddy,

Thanks for your inquiry. Here's a bit of history:

I met Bob Weir while attending Menlo School for Boys in 1961. Through Bob, I met his good friend, Vance Frost. Bob and I pursued our mutual interest in folk music and eventually performed together in a band called "The Uncalled Four." During the summer of 1964, while Vance and I were traveling around the country living out of a '56 Chevy station wagon, my brother, Peter Wanger, made a recording of Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions at Top of the Tangent in Palo Alto.

Many years later, while attending Stanford University, I had a radio program for which I produced a series of documentaries on various aspects of the sixties' folk and rock and roll scene. After several programs, I asked my friend Vance to accompany me on air in order to provide a little more liveliness to the program. This approach was so successful that we decided to take it to the next step. We approached KSAN's Program Director, Tom Donahue, with the idea of producing similar documentaries for KSAN. We wanted to start with Grateful Dead because we knew some of the band members and had the McCree recording.

Donahue gave us an official go-ahead, so in the late fall and early winter of 1968 we began our interviews. We met with the entire band at Alembic, the band's Marin "clubhouse" as they called it, and recorded everyone but Pigpen who declined to be interviewed. We got such great stuff that we charged ahead with interviews of John Cipollina and David Freiberg of Quicksilver Messenger Service, Paul Kantner and Spencer Dryden of Jefferson Airplane and Ralph J. Gleason, the jazz critic for the S. F. Chronicle who was a strong advocate for the new music that was coming out of San Francisco.

Starting in early 1969, we began putting the pieces together using the equipment at Golden State Recorders where Vance worked as an engineer. To fill out the early part of Grateful Dead's music history, we requested some early recordings. Rock Sculley gave us the first two singles, "Stealin'" and "Don't Ease Me In," along with some Fillmore recordings from 1966. We made copies and returned the originals to the Dead. The tape box labels featured on page 104 of the "The Deadhead's Taping Compendium" is our label for those tapes. The documentary aired on KSAN in June, 1969.

I guess there was an assumption, based on those box labels, that Vance and I had made some early recordings of Grateful Dead. Well, sad to say, it never happened.

Currently, I am working with Grateful Dead Productions on an Enhanced CD of the McCree recording. The multimedia portion will contain a 1964 interview with Jerry, Bob and other band members. I also expect to include the first 11 minutes of the documentary which traces Grateful Dead's history up through their jug band period.

Well, Teddy, it's been fun dredging up all these memories. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Best,

Michael Wanger

David Sorochty:
Most tapes have the song order listed in Deadbase 9 and earlier editions, which is incorrect. The correct song order is what's listed above. Our tapes seem to come from two shorter tapes which overlap a bit at the beginning of Viola Lee Blues.

Here's what's on my DAT tape which comes from a low gen reel:
7/3/66 Part 1 - some of the between song talking, then:
Viola Lee Blues
Big Boss Man
Sittin' On Top of The World#
Filler (Scorpio 45 RPM):
Don't Ease Me In
Stealin'
7/3/66 Part 2:
Dancin' In The Streets
I Know You Rider#
#He Was A Friend Of Mine
Next Time You See Me
all of the between song talking intact with no splice and then:
Viola Lee Blues# (cuts out after just a minute or so)

It is apparent that chronologically what I call Part 2 comes first, then Part 1 - they just overlap a bit on the beginning of Viola Lee. Most cassette tapes in circulation have the above order with the Scorpio filler moved to the end (sometimes the Viola Lee overlap part is intact, other times it is cut off). A few tapes in circulation have Part 2 first and then Part 1 with the overlap removed (which I believe is the right order) and the Scorpio filler last.

DeadBase X does list what I believe is the correct song order and also lists several more songs which do not circulate. They are: Unknown, Minglewood, Cold Rain, Unknown, BIODTL, Cream Puff War & It's A Good Thing."
Dick Latvala - According to DeadLists Digests #534:
Dick Latvala has crossed out "it's a good thing" and written "MESS UP A GOOD THING CARDBOARD COWBOY". Is this the real name of the song we call "Cardboard Cowboy"? Or did Dick forget to put a comma after 'Mess Up A Good Thing' and the next song would be 'Carboard Cowboy'?
Thayer Jennings: "My reasoning for listing He Was A Friend Of Mine and Next Time before Viola Lee:* I have three different copies of this -- two of the three are similar to the DeadBase listing (i.e. with Friend Of Mine and Next Time at the end of the set)... but the last copy came to me mislabeled as "04/23/66 San Fran"... but it is actually this (07/03/66). The set list on this third copy is the same as I've listed above (cutting in on Friend Of Mine and cutting out during Top Of The World). The key 'dead air' segment -- between Next Time and Viola Lee is intact.

There is a small bit of conversation between the two (which partially exists on my other copies):

Next Time > applause > Garcia [to band]: "Had to do it man. I had to do it." (laughter) "I just had to do it, you know how it is." (pause, but no splice)

Pigpen [to Garcia (or band)]: "Viola Lee Blues". Garcia [to audience]: "We had a request for this... before... before we did it. And uh..."

Lesh(?) [in background, to band]: "I don't know, man. I can't tell by
this...(?)"

Garcia [continuing, to audience]: "...and... it's called Viola Lee Blues."

Weir(?): "Aww, no..."> Viola Lee Blues."
DeadBase X [under 'mislabelled tapes']:
Many copies of this have four additional songs after Next Time You See Me. Stealin' and Don't. Ease are from the Scorpio Records single. Lindy is from 'Historic Dead' and Baby Blue is from 'Vintage Dead'. This tape is sometimes dated 9/4/66.

DeadBase X [under 'Tape Timings']:
There is a silver of Don't. Ease introduction that cuts almost immediately between Top Of The World and Dancin'.

Before Viola Lee Blues -- Jerry:
"We had a request for this before... before we did it. It's called Viola Lee Blues." Bobby: "Oooh Nooo!"

Before I Know You Rider -- Jerry:
"Along with our previous dedication dedicating this evening's sets on our part to the Sundancers in Ignatio, Colorado, we'd also like to dedicate a certain portion of this to Mnasidika, this little clothes store, you know, down on Haight Street that has some things and it's all right, and it's all right... indeed. We'd like to continue along the same happy vein... with another song, no doubt."

I Know You Rider cuts during the "muddy Water" verse. The beginning of He Was A Friend Of Mine is cut.
RECORDINGS 34 SB. The complete list circulates in SBD. The beginning of He Was A Friend Of Mine is clipped with an indeterminate portion missing.
Sittin' On Top Of The World cuts off with a significant portion missing. The end of I Know You Rider cuts off with a significant portion missing. Also (consult vault sources).

Bill Graham introduces the band before Viola Lee Blues: "The oldest juveniles in the state of California: the Grateful Dead." Viola Lee Blues timing includes the [0:07] 'intro'. When the 'intro' occurred seems to be in debate. Some say the 2nd set, others say after two songs and others what we have listed above. David Gans, as indicated below, seems to say that what is listed above as set 2 comes first on the tapes he found and that it is the tail end of set 1.

This is all accurate. I digitized these shows from master reels that an old friend had in his garage for years. There's a #I Know You Rider at the start of that 7/17 set, and there was another 7/17 tape that was unusable because of damage to the reel.

7/16/66: #He Was a Friend of Mine, Cream Puff War, ~Bill Graham intro, Viola Lee Blues, Don't Ease Me In, Pain in My Heart, Minglewood, Sittin' on Top of the World, You Don't Have to Ask, Cold Rain and Snow, Good Morning Little Schoolgirl, It's All Over Now Baby Blue, Dancing in the Streets#

7/17/66? Date unknown: (Date unknown.15ips. Tape curl causes dropouts in R channel): #Big Boss Man, Cold Rain and Snow, It's All Over Now Baby Blue, Cream Puff War, King Bee, Stealin', Dancin' in the Streets#

(Date unknown.15ips.) -> this part is in circulation:
#I Know You Rider, Big Boss Man, Standing on the Corner, Beat It on Down the Line, In the Pines, Cardboard Cowboy, Nobody's Fault But Mine, Next Time You See Me, He Was a Friend of Mine#
Teddy GoodBear: Since it does not make sense that a 'Graham intro' occurred 2 songs in or at the start of the 2nd set; here is what I think this is:

7/16/66?: ~Bill Graham intro, Viola Lee Blues, Don't Ease Me In, Pain in My Heart, Minglewood, Sittin' on Top of the World, You Don't Have to Ask, Cold Rain and Snow, Good Morning Little Schoolgirl, It's All Over Now Baby Blue, Dancing in the Streets#,

(same show con't. or previous date)

#I Know You Rider, Big Boss Man, Standing on the Corner, Beat It on Down the Line, In the Pines, Cardboard Cowboy, Nobody's Fault But Mine, Next Time You See Me, He Was a Friend of Mine#

(same show con't.)

#He Was a Friend of Mine, Cream Puff War.

7/1?/66?:
#Big Boss Man, Cold Rain and Snow, It's All Over Now Baby Blue, Cream Puff War, King Bee, Stealin', Dancin' in the Streets#."
David Sorochty:
Actually, this is most of set 2 of this show. One additional song from set 1 (#He Was A Friend Of Mine before Cream Puff War [GDH #501]) and one more song from set 2 (Dancin# follows Baby Blue) are on the reels David Gans got from his friend, but are not listed in DeadBase and do not circulate. Midnight Hour which DeadBase lists as the version with Joan Baez & Mimi Farina is not on these reels. This Midnight Hour was previously listed as being 8/7/66. See listing for "9/11/66" for more info.

After Viola Lee Blues -- Phil:
"That was a song about jail. This is a song about... well... No, it's a funny song."

Before You Don't. Have To Ask -- Jerry:
"Any of you folks right in the first few rows here have a match?"
Phil: "Oh here."
RECORDINGS 50 SB. The complete list circulates in two-track(?) SBD. SBD & GDH #226, #501 exist. Cream Puff War was on GDH #501. David Gans reels from friend's garage, 15ips.

COMMENTS Transcribed by Teddy GoodBear:
A rock & roll oasis just off Highway 101 in Navato, Rancho Olompali was where the Grateful Dead, the Diggers, the Angels, the Black Panthers and the San Francisco music scene went to dance after a head-banging week in the city. The Grateful Dead were each paid twenty-five dollars a week in those days and gigged wherever they could, often five days a week. An incredible freedom cruised through each day like a tide. The Jefferson Airplane, It's A Beautiful Day, Country Joe & The Fish, The Sons of Champlin, Quicksilver Messenger Service, The Charlatans, Big Brother & the Holding Company...

Weekend free-form celebrations of whatever anyone wished to celebrate, beginning in party clothes at the main house, ending naked in the sunshine by the pool. In addition to the Harley-scaled acreage, a huge outdoor oven cranked non-stop. It was the Diggers baking their daily bread to give away later in the park. As each participant got coated with flour, ghostly apparitions would leap from the oven to the pool, long hair flying in the wind. It was an easy scene for music and lovers, bands interwove and produced moments that were as high as they get. -- Grateful Dead Family Album (page 33).
Transcribed by Teddy GoodBear:
The Dead used to have some pretty good parties out at their place in the country, in Olompali. Two or three hundred people would come, and of course, most of them probably took LSD. This was around the time that a lot of new ground was being broken socially, and it seemed like a third to half the people at these parties would be naked, hanging around the pool. It was a great place. It was sort of a ranch estate that had a nice big house that looked kind of like Tara in 'Gone With The Wind'. Then there was a lot of land around it -- hills, a creek in the back, a big lawn and the pool. It was maybe 1000 feet off the highway, so it was fairly secluded.

In between the house and the pool the Dead would set up their equipment and play from time to time during the day. Usually there'd be members of other bands there too, like the Airplane and Quicksilver, and there'd be little jams with people who wanted to play. I remember that the Dead would be playing and Neal Cassady would be doing this strange little dance -- it was almost like breakdancing; very fluid. Out on the lawn there was this very far-out configuration of plumbing that was once part of a sprinkler system or something. It stuck out of the ground and stood maybe five feet high. I could'nt. figure out what the hell it was for. It was just a mess of pipes with faucets coming out of it that had been modified over the years. Very strange. So the Dead would be playing, and Neal would be dancing on the lawn with this bizarre metal partner. He'd dance around it, with it really. He had some pretty good moves, too. Neal was always in the thick of things.

Those parties -- I'm not sure how many of them there were -- were always on a nice afternoon. Everyone would play all day in the sunshine -- just doing everything -- and then when the sun would start to go down and it got cold, people would pack it in. By the time it was dark most people were gone, but there were always enough people who were either around to begin with or who wanted to stay, so that the party would continue inside. In fact, with the number of people hanging out there all the time, it was pretty much a party all the time anyway. I don't. know if it was 24 hours a day, but every time I was there it was going. -- George Hunter (The Golden Road). Grateful Dead Faimly Album (page 33).

Thayer Jennings: My copy (?and possibly the majority of circulating copies?) is from a 'bootleg LP' -- as evidenced by the minor 'needle pops' associated with LPs.
David Sorochty: Off Vintage and Historic LPs. See also the listing for "9/11/66" (same material but from SBD tape source) and for ??/??/66 (Stealin' and Same Thing) for the remaining songs on these albums.

Someone said that "9/16/66" came from a bootleg record and the Sunflower record label that they come from, was a subsidiary of MGM. I read that there was some question or disagreement with the band and MGM as to whether they really did have proper legal permission to put those two albums out. Could those two albums be thought of as semibootlegs?
Jim Powell: Avalon "9/11/66" & "9/16/66"

The MGM Sun LP "Vintage Dead" (Sun-5001) contains

SIDE A: I Know You Rider 4:25, It Hurts Me Too 4:17, It's All Over Now Baby Blue 4:50, Dancin In The Street 7:55; SIDE B: In The Midnight Hour 18:23.

Timings are off the album.

The liner notes describe the material as coming from "The Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco 1966."

This list has always appeared in DeadBase under the date 9/16/66, with a note saying actual date for list unknown."

I have a 45-minute cassette side of this material running from I Know You Rider through the first half or so of Midnight Hour. I got it from a friend up in Portland OR 10 years ago. He won his copy as a prize in a radio contest from a radio show up there called Fillmore Northwest. The tape was described to him as being off the reels of this material, not off the LP -- and that's what it sounds like. The tape he received was dated 9/11/66. As noted, the Midnight Hour from this date also circulates mislabeled with several other dates, including 8/7/66.
RECORDINGS 50 SB(LP), 60 SB(LP). The complete list circulates in SBD. The very beginning of Schoolgirl is clipped with possibly 1-2 secs missing.

COMMENTS KFRC radio source. Interview, but no songs other than commercially released material. According to Garcia's statements in the interview, the interview took place sometime during the latter part of 1966. The transcription of the interview can be seen at:
http://www.angelfire.com/fl/goodbear/interview66.html
Tom Ordon:
In early 1967, I taped an interview with the Grateful Dead that was being re-broadcast on KFRC in San Francisco. It was originally broadcast on KFRC in November, 1966. The disc jockey was Steve O'Shea and the program was called "KFRC Perspective". The length of the interview is 22 minutes and 22 seconds long. No songs were played. I am certain that David Gans has the whole thing because he stopped by my home in Dallas, Texas, in the late seventies, primarily to record it. He gave me credit in the back of his book, "Playing in the Band", for supplying the tape.
David Sorochty:
It begins with a pre-recorded radio station item which is like a choir singing the numbers of the year out like this:

Nineteeeeen Sixty-Siiiiiiiiiiix!

The interview begins and Jerry, Pigpen, Billy, and Bob are present. Phil is not and they say he had an errand to run or something like that.

There is a mention that the band has been together for about a year now. The interviewer says that he has seen them a few times at the Fillmore. They mention that there are fans during the interview. There is talk of Pigpen T-shirts being available and that the picture of him on the front of the shirt may have been on a Family Dog concert poster. They give the interviewer a complementary Pigpen T-shirt and he says he'll have to figure out somewhere to wear it! The whole thing is 6 mins 47 secs long.

Right in the last second of the interview the song Good Morning Little Schoolgirl is cross-faded in as the last words of the interview fade out. Schoolgirl gets cut after 47 seconds. This version seemed unusually clean and sounded a lot like a prerecorded studio recording. On a hunch, I cued this up with my CD of the first album and discovered that this is actually the version on the first album. I am positive it is a match. Since we know for sure the interview was in 1966, and the first album wasn't recorded till 1967, the Schoolgirl is something that was obviously tacked on later by someone and is unrelated to the interview.

They say they are playing the Fillmore with James Cotton (November 18-20 as per Art of the Fillmore page 55 BG #38) "the weekend after next".

November 18-20 is the weekend after next.

November 11-13 is then next weekend.

So that would make the date of the original broadcast occuring probably the first week or so of November.

Thayer Jennings:
Bill Graham introduces the band before Cold Rain And Snow - (cut)"...igpen, on organ and vocals; on the left, rhythm guitar and vocals, Mister Bob Weir; on bass and vocals, Mister Philip Lesh; on drums, in striped t-shirt, Mister Bill Summer; on the far left, on lead guitar and vocals, the Charles Atlas of the psychedelic set; the Grateful Dead."

The reasoning for listing Cold Rain before Hi-Heel Sneakers -
* The tape is ordered this way -- there *is* a splice between Cold Rain andHi-Heel Sneakers, but *not* between Pain I.M.H and BIODTL.
* Bill Graham's intro is before Cold Rain. Would the introduction have come *after* a couple songs??? (I kind of doubt it).
DeadBase X [under 'Tape Timings']:
After Pain In My Heart -- Pigpen:
"Thank you."

Before BIODTL -- ?: "It's Over." -- Jerry:
"It seems like it's just begun. What can I say here after I say this? Good
evening. The number tonight... everybody check your coupons... The lucky
number tonight is ten." Phil: "What? Hey, wait a minute, How many?"

Jerry: How many? Eleven? Eleven. Pardon me." Phil: "The magic number is eleven." BIODTL -- 11 beats.

Short tuning ditty before He Was A Friend. Tape cuts into and out of Teddy
Bear's Picnic before Smokestack. After Midnight Hour -- Pigpen: "Thank You."
David Sorochty:
Filler on tape - unidentified You See A Broken Heart, is from 3/12/66.

The common tapes, including mine, have this order:

Hi-Heel Sneakers
Pain In My Heart
-----------------------splice------
Cold Rain And Snow
-----------------------splice------
Beat It On Down The Line
Cream Puff War
Same Thing
He Was A Friend Of Mine
(Dancin' In The Street is missing)

In fact I had always thought that was the right order. I never doubted it and that is how its been listed in DeadBase too. Notice that there is a splice right before and after Cold Rain And Snow and that intoduction is missing. I'm willing to accept that my tape was out of order and it also had the intro cut out. But something about that seemed strange because I was absolutely positive that I had heard at least part of that "Charles Atlas" introduction before. But how could that be possible? I've only ever had one copy of 11/19/66 and its not on there.

Then I saw a post from Bart Wise where he said in regards to 2/12/67:

"I checked out my copy of 2/12/67 last night. Mine also has the Smokestack in between the other two songs and runs:

Bill Graham Intro -no audible cut-, Cold Rain and Snow % -cuts in-, Smokestack Lightning -cuts out-, % -cuts in- Hi Heeled Sneakers.

Bill Graham's intro is chopped up and reads: '...and on the far left...and on the lead guitar and vocals...the Charles Atlas of the psychedelic set...the Grateful Dead.' and without an audible cut, Cold Rain and Snow."

There it was again, the "Charles Atlas" introduction right before Cold Rain And Snow with no splice. That was exactly where I recalled hearing it from - my 2/12/67 tape! It didn't seem likely that the same intro would be used twice right before they start playing the same song. I wondered if 2/12/67 might be a bogus mislabeled partial copy of 11/19/66?

Even though I didn't have the intro on my 11/19/66 tape I compared the two versions of just the song Cold Rain And Snow by cueing them up so they were in perfect sync with each other and listening to them simultaneously. I did this several times and found that they are note for note identical. The real clincher was at the very end of the song in the last second or so there is some yelling from the audience that is also on both tapes which occurs just as it quiets down, but before the music finally stops. You can just barely hear it, but two people yell out what sounds like "Hey" and "Yeah" in quick succession. It sounds almost like one word "HeyYeah". Its kind of hard to hear, but its there on both tapes. These are definitely the same versions.

I then checked the two versions of Hi-Heeled Sneakers and there is some reverb at the beginning of 2/12/67 which is not on 11/19/66 (this was mentioned by Bart). The reverb dies down after a minute or less though for the most part. Aside from that they do seem to be played the exact same way on both tapes. In fact there is one time where Jerry sings the word "Sneakers" and his voice kind of catches and cracks a little. That is definitely on both tapes which is kind of odd in itself.

I checked the two versions of Smokestack and those seemed at first to be close, but the 2/12/67 Smokestack runs slow compared to the one from 11/19/66. They do definitely come from the same time frame where they played the song the same exact way. Even all of the ooo-oohs and aaah-aaahs from Pigpen match up just right. The speed difference is significant and again I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that they are the very same rendition but they are at least very close time frame wise. Smokestack gets cut off on 2/12/67 so you can't check for some strange identifiable yells from the audience right at the end of the song.

The interesting thing is that 2/12/67 has been around for a long time and 11/19/66 just came out of hiding all of a sudden at the same time as 3/18/67 did back in 1989. (I checked the Smokestack on 3/18/67 and its not the same as the one on 2/12/67 for sure).

The bottom line is that I'm convinced "2/12/67" is some sort of a compilation tape. I'm convinced that the intro, Cold Rain And Snow and Hi-Heeled Sneakers are definitely from 11/19/66. However the Smokestack (which might actually be a studio recording) seems to be played *very* similarly to the version on 11/19/66, but there may be some differences and no clincher to really prove it is the same as the 11/19/66 version. Maybe some other tape will show up from this time frame which will turn out to be the real source for that song.

David Sorochty & Teddy GoodBear: The list in Deadbase is incorrect. Early Morning Rain and Cold Rain And Snow are before Viola Lee Blues in set 2 of this show, not the "2/23/66" tape. Source for Cream Puff War as listed as set 1 in DeadBase X unidentified (see 5/19/66). Some cassettes in circulation do have the songs as listed in Deadbase X.
David Sorochty & Teddy GoodBear recap of DeadBase X:
DeadBase X and our notations in parenthesis -
Set 1: Cream Puff War. (see 5/19/66)
Set 2: Same as DeadLists Set 2 (see above 11/29/66), except DeadBase X do not list 'Early Morning' & 'Cold Rain'. They list it on 2/23/66.
Set 3: Same as DeadLists Set 3 (see above 11/29/66).
DeadBase Footnote: This is probably from more than one show, dates unknown.
(1) "Merry-Go-Round Broke Down" tuning after 'I Just Want'.
DeadBase X [under 'mislabelled tapes']:
Tapes with this date are a mixture of at least two shows which may actually all be from the Matrix. The time frame of this material seems to span from January to December of 1966. Sometimes this tape shows up dated 2/23/66. We have this date listed as "location unknown" but whether the Dead actually played that night remains a mystery.
David Sorochty:
Here is *some* of the in-between talking that should clarify the sets and the reason why I'm sure that Early Morning Rain and Cold Rain And Snow really do go where we say they do -

Side A - SET 2:

Jerry: "I'd like to start off the second set with a Cowboy song."
?: "Cowboy song."
Jerry: "Cowboy song."

Me And My Uncle, Same Thing.

Jerry: "an old jug band song - it's called Stealin'"
Jerry: "just Stealin'"

Stealin'

Jerry: "thank you"
?: "Ha, ha, ha"
Jerry: "gonna do a rock and roll song"
Jerry: "famous old rock and roll song"
Bobby: "for all you old geezers"

Big Boy Pete

Jerry: "thank you"
Jerry: "So much for our lights"

I have no doubt that this is all one show. In fact there really isn't any reason to think that it's not. It's just that we only have (mid 1998) tapes of sets 2 and 3 (and they really are sets 2 and 3). Maybe set 1 was never recorded or its just that it doesn't circulate if it does exist.

I also know why DeadBase does their lists the way they do:

First as I described above I think they have one of the 2/23/66 tapes with the Early Morning Rain and Cold Rain And Snow from 11/29/66 added on as filler. Second there are some tapes of 11/29/66 Sets 2 and 3 that are missing Early Morning Rain and Cold Rain And Snow on side A and have #Viola Lee at the end of side A instead (without the in between talking) and then just set 3 on side :B.

That version is missing the talking before Viola Lee that is key to understanding that those other two songs fit in where they do and this really is all one show.
Without the continuing talk about requesting Coca Colas before and after Cold Rain And Snow and also before the complete Viola Lee Blues you wouldn't know that. That is what they must have and that is why their lists are like that. I have the better more complete version of 11/29/66 Sets 2 and 3. I also had one of the other versions. I have never had a copy with Cream Puff War that cuts at the beginning of side A on my 11/29/66. I do kind of wonder where it really goes, that is the only thing in doubt.

It is possible that it is only on some 2/23/66 tapes but I'm not sure of that. Maybe the DeadBase folks saw a set 2 and 3 from one show and this other set that looked kind of like a set 1 and they combined them in their books for a while. I think that is the source of all the confusion. The doubt about 11/29/66 being from a single show is just in their minds because they don't have the most complete copy where you can figure this out.
RECORDINGS 74 SB. The complete list circulates in SBD.

COMMENTS (1) David Sorochty:
Me And My Uncle is often found as filler on circulating cassettes, of 12/1/66, *twice* after Alice D. Millionaire. They begin Me And My Uncle and play it for a minute or two and then it gets all messed up and they come to a stop. They screwed it up and Jerry explains "We can't agree where this is gonna go" or something close to that. After some confusion they begin Me And My Uncle again and this time they play it to completion. Neither the false start rendition or the one which comes to a finish are duplication of the set 3 Me And My Uncle which is part of the 12/1/66 show. In addition, this little clip is not duplication of any other currently (1998) circualting 1966 or early 1967 show. Its source and exact date of origin remains unknown.

Thayer Jennings: Again, this is obviously more than a single show. The only exception to DeadBase X -- I didn't list the (1st set) Me & My Uncle (between Alice D. Millionaire and Cream Puff War) -- my tape flips after Alice D.M... side B begins with Cream Puff War -- so I can't tell what (if anything) might be between them.

Right before they begin the 3rd set Jerry says something like "this is the last set of out last appearance on a Thurday at The Matrix" or something close to that.
RECORDINGS 142 SB. The complete list circulates in SBD. The very beginning of Yonder's Wall is clipped with perhaps 3-5 secs missing. The very beginning of Deep Elem Blues is clipped with an indeterminate portion missing.

Matt Schofield:
Evidence that there was at least a planned show for this night. The below was sent to me from Rob Weiner of "The Annotated Bibliography by David Dodd and Rob Weiner" located at:

http://info.greenwood.com/books/0313301/0313301417.html

This bibliography is an ideal research tool for someone with some time and access to newspaper vaults. But that's maybe something that will have to wait until all those newspaper articles are online.

This from the SF Chronicle of 12.1.66. Small article on page 46. With a picture of Garcia and Pigpen. (One word is illegible on the photocopy that I have - but it really does say 'Pen is the lead singer').

"From A Jug"

"Jerry Garcia, left, and Pig Pen are a [?] two fifth of the Grateful Dead, the blues-rock group which will play a dance concert at 9 tomorrow night at Pauley Ballroom, University of California. Garcia is the lead guitarist, Pen is lead singer and plays harmonica and organ. The group, which has been in existence for about 16 months, is one of the two most popular organizations in the Bay Area.

It evolved out of a jug band which included Garcia, Pen and Bob Weir, the Dead's rhythm guitarist. Phil Lesh is the bassist, Bill Sommers is the drummer."
