COMMENTS "The Great Human Be-In" - afternoon concert. Other artist(s): Jefferson Airplane, QMS, Country Joe & The Fish and The Charlatans". *Charles Lloyd on flute on GMLS.

Transcribed by Glenn Gillis:
Best of all were the glorious free concerts in the Panhandle -- a flatbed truck, makeshift electricity, food, wine, friends, sunshine, and some wonderful bands who hadn't hit the big time yet. At first it seemed amazing that we knew by name so many of the hundreds gathered; but as the months went by, our awareness of a larger community grew until it peaked that fine day in January of 1967, the day of the Tribal Stomp at the Polo Fields to be known as the "Human Be In."

We heard it through the grapevine, and a half dozen of us started early that morning to walk the couple of miles to the park. As we walked along Lincoln Avenue, we noticed other groups of neighbors walking in the same direction. More joined in off side streets, and by the time we turned north into the park, we were a large, laughing group. A half mile later, we were a horde and as the Be-In took shape through the day, we were awed and thrilled as the Polo Fields filled up with more than 20,000 people. It was a day of innonence and hope; and in many ways the last moments of naivete for a neighborhood that had just gone public. -- Rosie McGee from: Brandelius, Jerilyn Lee, "Grateful Dead Family Album -- p40. New York: Warner Books, Inc., 1989.

David Sorochty:
A short while ago I mentioned that I received a tape from David Dieterich which had on it some undated filler which included an unknown instrumental version of Viola Lee Blues.

I listened carefully to that bit and here's what I got:

Midnight Hour (13.17)
Viola Lee Blues# (4.10) instrumental version
#Good Morning Little Schoolgirl (0.27) (with flute)

When I heard the flute on GMLSG I thought immediately of 1-14-67 and sure enough that's what it was, but just the tail end of the song. After checking the Viola Lee turned out to also be from 1-14-67, but just from the beginning up to the quick dropout in that song at the 4 minute 10 second mark. I have not really tried to figure out where the Midnight Hour comes from, but I suspect it will be duplication of something common.

I was fooled into thinking the Viola Lee was an unique instrumental version because it didn't have the end of the song which is the only place they sung the lyrics on 1-14-67. I hope this helps to clarify things for you if you come across this item.

Think quickly - where else is there a 13 minute 17 second Midnight Hour?

Teddy GoodBear:
After listening to the rap in GMLSG, I'd say it's Lloyd with help from Pigpen. I've not heard Lloyd other than this recording, nor do I know what Lloyd's voice sounds like; as I'm just guessing. So I'm listing this entry as "sounding like Lloyd", unless somebody knows differently.

The Grateful Dead used this pseudonym as a group credit for songs the unit composed together.

"McGannahan Skjellyfetti" was the pseudonym used by the band as the author's name for the group compositions ("The Golden Road" and "Cream Puff War"). "McGannahan Skjellyfetti" was a character, the protagonist's 'literary agent', in Kenneth Patchen's "Memoirs Of A Shy Pornographer", published in 1945.

COMMENTS List may be from any one of these three shows at the Avalon. Other artist(s): QMS.

To see the concert art:

Bart Wise:
This show is an AUDience tape, not a soundboard. The break between Viola Lee Blues and Cold Rain and Snow sounds like a master tape pause, and nearby audience clapping is obvious between the songs. The vocals and organ are prominent in the mix and the guitar and drums are echoey and distant; this may indicate that the taper stood near a PA stack and a bit distant from the stage, thereby reducing the prominence in the mix of instruments which received less PA sound reinforcement. All instruments are audible and there is very little hiss.

There is some distortion on loud vocal and organ passages. Morning Dew cuts in on the first note of the song, so probably only one or two seconds is missing. New Potato Caboose fades out to about 2 seconds of silence before Viola Lee Blues fades in; these are clearly cuts that occurred sometime after the master was made.

About the date of this tape: my memory may not be exactly right, but I think this tape usually circulated as 1/28/67 until sometime in the 80's, when Deadbase started listing it as 1/27/67, at which point you started seeing it traded under that date. Under any circumstances, it has always seemed a little odd to me, a little too mature sounding and stretched out for my picture of what they were playing in the very beginning of 67. Despite the fact that there are too few tapes from that era to really make any conclusions about date from content, I decided to compare with other tapes with slightly more solid dates.

First, I think this is probably all from one show, rather than a compilation as Jim Powell suggested. The whole tape has the same sound and the same mix of instruments, and from my own experience audience taping, even with the same rig in the same hall it would be unusual to get such similar sounding recordings on different nights.

The chief point of inquiry was the version of Alligator. On 1/27/67, there is a drum intro and after the initial vocal section, the band proceeds straight into jamming without the intervening drum solo. After a few minutes of jamming, Garcia sings his "Alligator runnin' round my door" bit, which is followed by more jamming.

Comparing this with other versions, we find that on 5/5/67 (a shaky date itself), 8/4/67, and 9/15/67, Alligator is begun not with a drum intro but rather with a Garcia guitar intro. In all three versions, the band jumps into jamming after the vocals without a drum solo, and in all three versions Garcia does NOT sing "Alligator runnin' round..."

11/10/67 and 11/11/67, on the other hand, both start with a drum intro rather than the guitar intro. There is the signature drum solo after the initial vocals, and Garcia sings "Alligator runnin' round..." on both.

If I had to date the tape of 1/27/67 just on the basis of the above information, I would place it sometime in between 9/15/67 and 11/10/67. The three summer 67 Alligators are consistent with each other and different from both the "1/27/67" and 11/67 shows.

As for the Viola Lee Blues, at over 21 minutes it certainly seems different from versions on 11/29/66 (about 10 min), 8/4/67 (about 12 min), 9/15/67 (about 10 min, but cut), and even 11/10/67 (about 15 min, but cut.) Who could know, but it seems like it probably belongs later in the year.

"1/27/67" may be the right date, but it might also be a case of the taper later saying "I think this was recorded at the Avalon in early 67." Perhaps we should note something like "The date is slightly questionable; tape content suggests later in the year."

Tim Anderson:
I've always been of the opinion that the drum solo in Alligator didn't start until Mickey joined up. Needless to say, I have no evidence to back this up. Just a gut feeling, and the mythology of the alleged two-hour Alligator on his first show, seems to point in that direction.

David Sorochty:
This tape sounds like an old audience tape, but with next to no audience noise. I believe this may be an audience tape that was recorded with the mics up high enough to eliminate crowd noise. That would be unusual for a tape this old.

Immediately after they finish Cold Rain And Snow you can hear a Schoolgirl tease for about two seconds before the tape cuts off.

I believe that DeadBase's comment that Alligator is uncertain does not mean that they are in doubt about its existence in this show, rather they mean that the general consensus is that Alligator was not played until later in that year, so Alligator throws doubt on the dating of this tape to January 1967.

Jim Powell:
SET1 [78:17] Morning Dew [7:10] % New Potato Caboose [8:40#] % Viola Lee Blues [21:47] % Cold Rain And Snow [2:56] % drums [0:04] > Alligator [17:42] > Caution (Do Not Stop on Tracks) [19:50] %

Most circulating copies of this tape require speed correction. This tape sounds like it was made with mics set up on the stage lip. The clapping (e.g. at the end of CRS) proves the tape was made with AUD mics. The minimal amount of audience noise proves the mics were placed way up front. The mix on the tape is the result of the mics' placement in relation to the various monitors on stage, plus the acoustic sound of the drums, plus the spillover from the PA stacks. Plainly these six tunes belong to the same show but it is not clear from the tape whether they belong to one set or two.

New Potato Caboose fades down at the end, probably close to its conclusion. DeadBase lists a Good Morning Little Schoolgirl following Caution but the tape of Schoolgirl [17:42] circulating mislabeled "1/27/67" with this date is actually from 4/9/70.

This tape used to circulate labeled "1/28/67" until DeadBase labeled the list "1/27/67," noting that it might actually belong to 1/28 or 1/29.

Pigpen is of course the vocalist on Alligator.

The performances on this tape are so incendiary that it's hard to believe it comes from so early in the year, but it certainly comes from before Sept. 67, since the inimitable Mr. Billy The K is the one and only sole drummer on the tape. And actually, after listening again to 11/19/66, the strongest performance of 1966 circulating, I find it much easier to believe that the 1/27/67 tape could actually be dated properly.

I suggested that this tape was a "composite" because I remembered suspecting the Schoolgirl, and when I checked it just now, it was obvious that the Schoolgirl is an entirely different mix, even before I identified it as being in fact 4/9/70.

On the 4/9/70 Schoolgirl Pigpen tries to start the vocals 8 bars early, but quickly cuts himself short -- this is its easiest identifying mark. This tape of Fillmore West 4/9/70 also circulates with some bizarre chick wailing overdubbed in one channel, mislabeled "Fillmore East 7/10/70."

Does anyone have a copy of the Avalon 1/27/67 tape with a version of Schoolgirl that seems to actually belong to 1/27/67?

After listening again to this tape I am inclined even more strongly to nominate it as the strongest performance of 1967 circulating. (Truth to tell, there isn't a lot of competition, however.)

David Scott Allan:
New Potato is the exact same on both 1/27/67 and 10/22/67. Dew might be the same, too, but I'd have to go back and check. I still suspect that 1/27 may in fact be a falsely dated composite of shows from later in the year, especially given the well developed Alligator > Caution. I don't know if we'll ever have a definitive answer regarding the source(s) for that tape, but it's probably worth noting that the date is uncertain for more than just the Alligator > Caution.

David Sorochty:
I saw the posts on these shows and was kind of surprised, especially about 10/22 and 1/27. I say that since 10/22 is CD type quality soundboard and 1/27 is a grungy echoey aud tape, they don't sound anything alike. Maybe they are two different sources for the same show? Anything is possible with these old tapes I guess. So I'll sit down and do a careful comparison.

DeadBase X has this to add:
"This tape, which is of uncertain origin, also exists dated as 1/24/67, 1/28/67 and part of 2/12/67. Keep in mind that some sources claim Alligator was not performed until June."

David Sorochty:
This tape is mislabeled compilation tape of material from 11/19/66. This tape was in circulation for years before the complete 11/19/66 became available. There is some reverb at the beginning of High-Heeled Sneakers which must have been added later since it is the 11/19/66 performance, which does not have the reverb.

Jim Powell:
All tapes circulated marked with this date are mislabeled. High Heel Sneakers, Cold Rain and Snow, and Smokestack Lightning are all 11/19/66; the Smokestack Lightning > King Bee is Studio 67.

Teddy GoodBear:
While it may be true that all tapes marked with this date are mislabeled, I have a Smokestack Lightning that I got in the late 70's marked "2/12/67". I'm not able to tell whether it is a studio or show version, but it definetly is NOT 11/19/66. It also seems to end without going into anything; as being not the same as below (??/??/67) "Smokestack Lightning > I'm a King Bee" entry. I agree with the few that believe Smokestack being played in 1966 was too early!

Teddy GoodBear later goes on to say:
My Smokestak tape (which sounds very slow) is as follows -

Bob Weir Interview* [1:20] (talks about Mime Troupe billed as GD formally the Warlocks, Bill Graham calling Billy K. for advice & Bill Graham is the one with the clipboard at the Trips Festival).
*Where is this from? If anybody has the rest of this interview, let me know.

Smokestack# [to 9:41#]

Now, I'm not sure if it's different than 11/19/66. It may be the same as Jim said. Being so slow it's hard to tell. I didn't. remember the cut I had, but there is a cut none the less. Perhaps someone with pitch control can speed it up & compare it to the 11/19/66 one.

Edward A. Davis:
Hey all!
This comes from the "excellent" (IMHO) book by Oliver Trager entitled "The American Book of The Dead: The Definitive Grateful Dead Encyclopedia" and is published here completely without permission. Any spelling errors or typos are mine -

The Grateful Dead used this pseudonym as a group credit for songs the unit composed together. Those with eagle eyes will notice that "The Golden Road (to Unlimited Devotion)" and "Cream Puff War" on their debut album and "Feedback" from "Live/Dead" receive the McGannahan Skjellyfetti authorship. Kenneth Patchen's novel "Memoirs of a Shy Pornographer" is the source of the monicker.

Ihor W. Slabicky:
"McGannahan Skjellyfetti" was the pseudonym used by the band as the author's name for the group compositions ("The Golden Road" and "Cream Puff War"). "McGannahan Skjellyfetti" was a character, the protagonist's 'literary agent', in Kenneth Patchen's "Memoirs Of A Shy Pornographer", published in 1945.

Steve Phillips:
The name comes from Kenneth Patchen's novel "Memoirs of a Sky Pornographer", in which "Skujellifeddy McGranehan" was the protagonist's literary agent: "May I call you Skujellifeddy? Mr. McGranehan's sort of awkward."

For the answer to this, and many other burning Dead questions, see "Skeleton Key - A Dictionary for Deadheads" by David Shenk and Steve Silberman (c)1994. This book is a must-have for any Deadhead's bookshelf!

COMMENTS Walkin' Blues may not be from same event. Other artist(s): The Wildflower and QMS.

Bart Wise:
(The cut in Cream Puff War is a VERY minor dropout and occurs in the first couple of seconds of the song.)

Now I am no longer sure whether "Walkin' Blues" should be included in the database. It is clearly a faked-up piece where someone has spliced segments of Quicksilver playing the song together with segments of the Grateful Dead playing the song:

Jim Murray singing, Cipollina playing
Pigpen singing, Garcia playing
Jim Murray singing, Cipollina guitar solo
Pigpen harp solo, Garcia guitar solo
Quicksilver finish the song.

The cuts are carefully done, and this might be how KPIX-TV broadcast the piece. The sound quality is similar to the version of Cream Puff War. I couldn't find the other version of Grateful Dead doing "Walkin' Blues" (from 1966) to compare with this one, if I even have it. Finally, if it helps with dating the tape, the Quicksilver web site lists October 1967 as the month Jim Murray left the band.

David Sorochty:
There is an interview already in progress that the tape cuts in on. Jerry is talking about Cream Puff War and says that it is the only song for which he has completely written the whole thing himself. There is some indecipherable talk about "the words", so maybe he means that he only wrote all the lyrics himself. Phil pipes up and is heard briefly and others are heard giggling in the background. The interview lasts only 24 seconds and then they go to play the song. The Cream Puff War that follows is 3 minutes and 44 seconds long.

Yeah - I know what you're thinking. There are some stories about them going on the Maze show and lip synching a song. I've even seen a picture from that TV appearance where Phil I believe, was holding a broom instead of his bass to mock out the whole lip synch thing. So I thought that even though this didn't sound like the version on the 1st album at all, it would be worth a check since if it is kind of grungy, and as it turns out this is a much longer version than the one on the LP and they *definitely* are not the same.

So - if this was from that TV show, maybe they recorded the audio there for the TV show and they just lip synched it later? Is it possible that this is from another TV appearance where they didn't lip synch or maybe from a radio program? Who knows? I guess I always just presumed that when they lip synched on the Maze show it was to a song off the 1st LP.

David Sorochty continues:
Walkin' Blues which I called 1966 and we now are saying might be from 1967 "Maze TV" show.

Well the version I call ??/??/66 on my web site is indeed the same version of this song which switches back and forth between the Dead and QMS.

Here is what I have come up with:

It starts out with QMS playing the song,
at 27 seconds it switches to the Dead playing it,
at 50 seconds it switches to QMS,
at 1 minute and 27 seconds it switches to the Dead,
at 1 minute and 59 seconds it switches QMS,
who finish it out to a total time of 2 minutes and 14 seconds.

If this is from a TV broadcast it would be really cool to see a video of this since the picture would have been switching back and forth in sync with the audio!

Jim Powell:
The interview cuts in on Garcia laughing with announcer talking about Ralph J. Gleason. Interview tape with Gleason following, who introduces Jerry & asks him "what kind of music does the Grateful Dead play. Jerry answers "loud," and continues by saying that they play "dance music." In response to a question about their sources Jerry says that they are "clever thieves." Later Jerry talks about playing feedback: "If you ignore it it just gets louder and louder." The interview concludes with Jerry introducing Cream Puff War and saying that he wrote it.

Here's a listing of my copy of this tape, which is certainly lo gen though perhaps still not entirely complete (see below).

The Maze TV Show, KPIX-TV, San Francisco 4/8/67. Total time [19:06 +].
The Wildflowers: "Crying In The Background" [3:40; title is a guess]

Interviews with Ralph Gleason and with Garcia, Weir & Lesh [4:55]. This is the interview snippet where Jerry identifies the Dead as "clever thieves."

Grateful Dead: Cream Puff War [3:51]

The tape here contains a scrap of the announcer's voice left from a cut. Perhaps it's only commercials that were cut, together with the announcer's 'and now let's return ...'. See below, however.

Quicksilver Messenger Service: Pride Of Man [3:42]
Quicksilver Messenger Service: Walkin' Blues [2:23]
Announcer: concluding remarks [fade down at 0:23]

Somewhere I've seen or heard Ralph Gleason quoted during this period remarking that even when San Francisco bands perform the same song, they play it differently; he gives as his example the Dead's and Quicksilver's different handling of Robert Johnson's Walkin' Blues. During his concluding remarks the announcer seems to refer to this comment. Perhaps it appeared in a passage of the show cut between Cream Puff and Pride Of Man, or between Pride and Walkin' Blues. It seems less likely that the show also included a performance of the tune by the Dead.

COMMENTS Jerry and Phil as guest DJs at a radio station. There is no dead music, just some talking and joking around between the songs they play.

David Gans (taken from a newsgroup posting):
Tom Donahue was the guy who, with Bobby Mitchell, started free-form psychedelic radio. They had been DJs on KFRC, and they rented air time on a minor station called KMPX, a few hours a night at first, and then eventually they took over the whole station.

Donahue also owned Autumn Records. There are some very cool compilations of Autumn Records psychedelic bands (I forget what label, and I can't find them right now; have you noticed how often I say that?). That "Emergency Crew" aka Warlocks demo from 11/65 (?) was recorded for Autumn Records, and Donahue's widow, Raechel, controls those tapes. I asked her about licensing them about 15 years ago and she said, "If you can get Jerry to call me about the tapes, we can talk about it."

Donahue was indeed a "public personality beyond his reputation for this program." He was truly the "Dig Daddy" of rock radio. He also put on concerts.

COMMENTS David Dieterich:
The Golden Road complete and uncut. 5 minutes in length, color, picture quality is fair, sound quality is good (say B+). The video portion is intense to watch. Strob lights are flashing and the camera zooms in and out very fast on the band members. It appears that Mickey was not there. There is a lot of footage of people dancing (and the guy doing the oil-based light show). Looks like a great party!

Matt Schofield:
There was a TV program called Whicker's World over here [UK] - starting sometime in the late 60s I should think. Maybe also aired in the US.

Can't remember it too well but I think it was the sort of program that could have had a 'look back at the SF 60s music scene in a patronising way' edition, but maybe I'm thinking of something else.

Seems a simple enough way though for the words 'Whicker's World' to get attached to the video, rather than trying to discover a venue of that name.

Tim Anderson:
It was the studio version of GR overdubbed to the performance film.

David Sorochty:
Whicker’s World

Announcer #1:
“...ow night. The retrospective exhibition of her work opens at the Opera Grovener Galleries in London next week.”

Announcer #2:
“An assault on the senses, an LSD trip without drugs. Flashing strobe lights, spermatazoic color.”

The Golden Road which follows is just the version off the first album.

I don't have the video, just the audio. Someone can give it another look and see if it is apparent they are lip synching. I cued up my CD of the 1st album and the Whicker's World tape and they sound the same to me, though the Whicker's tape is much more grungy of course. BTW both of the announcer's voices sound British.

COMMENTS Eyewitness (Dennis Donley) notes: "4/29/67 was my first Dead show. They played two sets that evening, with the Doors playing their set between the two. I do know, with absolute certainty that the Dead opened their second set with Viola Lee Blues. The first album had just come out a month or so before and I was mesmerized by that tune. After the Doors finished their set and left everyone fairly stunned, the Dead came back out almost immediately, and either Weir or Garcia said, 'How about a little Viola Lee Blues', whereupon I hopped on the bus for good."

"You may be somewhat dubious of this information. I cannot tell you another song played by the Dead that evening. I can tell you that I am the source for the Deadbase notation for that show."

COMMENTS He Was A Friend cuts off. Song order is speculation by Teddy GoodBear, based on the late 70's tape and cuts.

Jeff Tiedrich:
No way this is 9/29/67, which is where Deadbase moved this list for Vol 9. Their contention is that this is the famous Mickey's first show falls apart when you hear the entire tape. Alligator comes to a definite conclusion and is no way part of the infamous two-hour Alligator/Caution.

David Sorochty:
The info in Deadbase about 5/5/67 really being 9/29/67 is not so of course. The song order I have is:

Dancin'
Golden Road >
New Potato
Alligatior
He Was A Friend Of Mine

Alligator starts and comes to a complete finish, so all the talk of a two hour long Alligator (for the show on this tape at least) is not possible. The info listed in Deadbase saying Alligator---> Caution is obviously wrong then too.

Teddy GoodBear:
On my older tape that I got in the late 70's -

He Was A Friend Of Mine# [4:24]
#Stage Banter [:50] Jerry: "...We're stalling...corn plaster on his bass drum" >
Golden Road [1:58] Bob: "This one is for Laughlin" >
Caboose# [6:48]

On my newer tape that I got in the 80's -

#Stage Banter [2:08] Jerry: "...We're stalling...corn plaster on his bass drum" >
Golden Road [2:11] Bob: "This one is for Laughlin" >
Caboose [9:14]
Alligator [11:00]
He Was A Friend Of Mine# [5:06]

What's DeadBase's logic? Does anybody hear Mickey on the tape? I don't. So if there is no Mickey then the tape has to be before 9/29/67 or whenever Mickey was out of the band during the early 70's. I'll go along with labeling it, "circulates as 5/5/67, but date is uncertain".

As I said, I got my older copy around the late 70's from a NY trader who had a lot of "Fillmore" tapes in his collection. He told me the date & said it was from the Fillmore. Assuming we believe it's from the Fillmore, that narrows down the date quite a bit.

And if you look at these songs, they fit in with the other "timeframe wise" dates these songs were being played. If I came into this cold without any dates attached to this tape, I would say based upon other setlists that this was 3/19/67, 4/12/67 or 5/5+6/67.

Christian Crumlish, his unedited review some of which was published in "The DeadHead's Taping Compendium vol. #1":

05/05/67, Fillmore Auditorium, San Francisco, California
[stage banter], The Golden Road > New Potato Caboose, Alligator, He Was a Friend of Mine//

The tape itself came to me mislabeled as a "Fillmore West Acid Test 02/06/67." Not only was there no Acid Test on that date, but there was no Fillmore West in 1967 either. It probably got called an acid test along the way because of the trippy stage banter, labeled on my original as "The Effects of Vitamin A." My first copy of this was an audience tape but a soundboard is now available. Some tapes have the He Was a Friend of Mine first (before the chatter), but the soundboard shows that it clearly comes after Alligator.

Here's a transcript of what's said on stage before The Golden Road:

--tuning sound--

?:
Wheeeeeew

Bob and others:
aaaaghh, urrrghhh, etc.

Jerry:
We're stalling. We're stalling while our uh drum-- I'll tell you tell you exactly what's going on up here so nobody has to wonder anymore.

Bob?:
Lay it on me. ["on" pronounced "own"]

Jerry:
What's going on is our drummer is putting a uh corn plaster on his bass drum.

Phil?:
He is lifting his left thumb....

Jerry:
That's what's happening.

--bass drumming and cheers, organ notes--

Bob:
OK now this is a drop-out song and as far as you all are drop-outting, dance dance dance....

?:
waauugh!

?:
Did somebody say "waaaugh!"?

?:
waaaaeghh

Bob:
Everybody say "waaaa!"

?:
Waaaagh!

Bob:
Thank you--

Jerry:
Gosh

Pigpen:
Let me hear everybody say "fuck!"

audience (weakly):
Fuck!

Jerry (languid):
Louuuder.

Bob:
Everybody say "dope"

audience:
dope!

Jerry:
awww

Bob:
Everybody say "primate"

??:
What?

Jerry:
Say what?

Bobby:
Oh yeah? ... Everybody say "What?"

audience:
What!

??? (goober voice):
Whut?

Jerry:
Hey that was good that was good.

Phil:
Everybody say "Ohhh noooo!"

audience:
No!

Pig (singing):
T'ain't nothing 'a me...

--golden road starts--

Here are some glimpses into the personalities of the members of the band:

Bobby tends to take things to an abstracted level, his cry of "primate" is not taken up and leaves even the other band members puzzled. Phil's suggestion seems to be based on the sound that people sometimes make when they're tripping too hard. Pig's contribution is more earthy and natural.

The hippie attitude without the intellectual pretensions. Jerry, back when he still spoke from the stage, is actually filling in the audience on what's going on upstage, in a small way leveling the barrier between performer and fans.

The Golden Road is energetic and over quickly, segueing neatly into New Potato. (Bobby says something like "This one if for Laughlin" before launching into the first verse.

Highlights: The Golden Road, Bobby's inarticulate lysergic insight that we're all primates.

Subject: Dead in NYC

Dear folks,
I visited New York in July 1967 and went with Ken Weaver of the Fugs, who I was staying with, to see the Grateful Dead who were playing, if my memory is correct, at a place called The Cheetah. After the set Ken introduced me to Pigpen, who was a big friend of his and he came with us to see a Fugs show. Does anyone have any information on this gig? Was it the first time that the Dead played New York? Any info would be gratefully received.

All the best,
Miles

Bill Graham was not the emcee at the Monetery Pop Festival, so it's doubtful he would introduce the BAND from the stage. However, some folks have speculated that since Graham was in attendance and a friend of the Dead, he might have done the intro and or the outro as a "guest emcee."

The Alligator is a curiosity; it's a very primordial version without vocals. Some parts are missing. Pigpen plays harmonica over the "verse" parts of the song. If indeed this date is accurate and Alligator was not yet fully fleshed-out as of mid-June '67, the certainly the true date of "5/5/67" falls somewhere later in the year.

David Freiberg (from An Interview with David Freiberg by John Barthel, 9/4/97):

DF: From Monterey? Yeah, the LEAST memorable thing to me was us playing. I mean...we just kinda did it. It was in the middle of the afternoon...you know...it was kinda weird. And I remember...I didnt sing a single song. I dont know why it was that ...whether it was ME...being full of nerves, or ME being pissed off, or whether it just happened that way...I dont really recall. But I remember we really didnt play very well. But the whole idea was "being" there, being one of the artists, and the backstage was just phenomenal. Youd be walking along and "Oh...theres the Rolling Stones", "OH and theres..." Everybody you knew and Crosby was there and "Bear" was there. And everybody was taking a Acid, or STP. I think that "Bear" had invented just for this thing and, like...we'd SEEN Otis Redding.

He had already played the Fillmore, so I knew him, but this time he was playing with Booker T. & The MG.s. I watched that set leaning on "Duck" Dunns bass set. That was just great... that was really impressive. And sitting right on stage watching Jimi Hendrix and The Who... and seeing that whole thing. First big Hendrix hit...you know. And Janis...I guess Janis played the same afternoon we did. Her manager Julius...didn't let them film it, and she wanted to be in the movie so bad. So they actually scheduled her again...so she played one night. So, Big Brother played one night and was in the movie...and of course thats really what made her famous.

[Caption: THIS IS THE O'KEEFE?]

The normally staid O'Keefe Centre - a hotbed of Toronto culture - took on a mod look last night as young hippies danced in the aisles to the music of the Jefferson Airplane, a rock group in the San Francisco style. Later 300 youths danced on the stage as three groups jammed for 50 minutes. Story, photo on page 19.

from p.. 19....

"Kids dance in the O'Keefe's aisles"

By VOLEMAR RICHTER
Star staff writer

Marty Balin smiled with delight as he looked over the 300 people dancing on the O'Keefe Centre stage last night. And just for fun he acted out the fear on Hugh Walker's face when the whole thing started.

Balin's group, the Jefferson Airplane, rock 'n' roll exponents of the San Francisco hippie-freedom, got the kids dancing in the aisles in a joyous freewheeling happening.

Ushers frantically tried to return them to their seats because, after all, other paying customers might want to see and besides that sort of thing just isn't done at the O'Keefe.

"Disregard the ushers," the leader of one of the three rock groups on the bill shouted. Hundreds of them did and that's what bothered Walker, the Centre's managing director.

Hasty

Over at the side, he had a hasty discussion with Bill Graham, the San Francisco dance hall baron and producer of the show. Graham pointed out that the crowd was peaceful and happy and wouldn't think of tearing up those soft seats or anything else.

"Let's just say it turned out all right," he said afterward, a few minutes before disappearing into a back room for more discussions with five grey-suited O'Keefe managers.

Most of the near sellout crowd last night just watched. Dozens more sat out in the lobbies discussing the whole thing over a few more cigarettes.

But maybe 300 others danced to a pounding, driving, throbbing and oozing trip of sound and color supplied by three BANDs and two light shows. Here's how it happened.

Appetizer

Before the opening dim of the lights, the three screens on stage were already giving an appetizer.

Centre screen carried the encircled, upside-down Y peace symbol, its colors slowly changing; green on blue, blue on two greens, tan on green and yellow. This screen was filled by Headlights, a group that adds the visual impact to the rock 'n' roll shows at Graham's Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco.

They work with liquid projections - colored oils swirled on a dish and projected - and rotating color wheels and loops of live-action film.

At stage right and left were two extra screens carrying color projection by a New York group called Sensefex Inc. Their work involves the projection of paint-splotch slides, electric motors that twirl the whole thing around. A movie projector showed its contents through a chute of angled mirrors that was also rotated by a motor.

Hippies

On the screens the multi-hued splotches revolved slowly forming a kaleidoscope resembling some protoplasm. Its colors were hard and deeply defined; white Headlights projected soft, gentle colors like early morning.

The audience was liberally sprinkled with hippies - in army shirts and commando hats, in beads and capes, and even in ties and jackets.

First BAND: Toronto's Luke & the Apostles. started off with their hard blues-rock sound. Lead singer Luke (Gibson) hugged the microphone crooner-style as he belted out "My Soul."

The peace symbol started dripping colors and eventually melting away shapelessly under the liquid colors that were applied above it. Bizarre globes turned green, red and back to green and ended like a red sky with stars.

The Apostles. did two standard blues, "You Can't Judge A Book By Looking At The Cover" and "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl," both in a tough, heavy lumbering tone, filled with science-fiction and monster noises that were interesting to hear but out of place.

"Schoolgirl" was also done by the next group, The Grateful Dead, but in a looser, freer version, and in the Chicago blues form it came from. It was symbolic of the free music the group plays. They take it easy and put in their improvisations naturally.

That characterizes both the Jefferson Airplane and the Dead, the latter lesser known and less inventive. But the Dead are the true spokesmen for the San Francisco hippie scene and former resident musicians with the LSD Trips Festivals run by novelist Ken Kesey.

(They also have an album that its Canadian distributor can't keep in stock, though the Dead have had no radio hits).

Leader Jerry Garcia's group doesn't have as much substance as the Airplane, but they work together as precisely as parts of a machine.  Two-hundred-pound Pig Pen (Ronald McKernan) gives a happy undertone to the music, while Phil Lesh plays complex bass.

No effort

It took the Jefferson Airplane, after intermission to get the dancing started. The taped sounds of a jet heralded their arrival. The group fills to stage front with Grace Slick's torchy vocal, "Somebody To Love."

The Airplane captured that crowd without effort. The quality of their music, its intelligence and imagination superimposed on the necessary beat, drew them out to experience total involvement with sound and color.

This music appeals to the older rock 'n' roll lovers. The young kids can't dance with the tempo transitions. The older ones do a free-form, improvised dance

Leader Balin, sings in a clear voice. Grace booms and lashes out with hers. Guitarist Jorma Kaukonen puts substance into the group's improvisations, while Jack Casady puts down a solid bass line. Spencer Dryden adds excitement with his drums, and Paul Kantner plays guitar, and sings.

They project the spontaneity freshness of youth. Their music is alive, and communicates clearly despite its complex arrangements and structure.

After the concert-dance, another dance occurs right on stage. This one planned as all three BANDs jam for a straight 50 minutes.

David Sorochty:
"Before New Potato Caboose Jerry says "This is a song called New Potato Caboose, don't you know".  Viola Lee Blues goes into a short Feedback and cuts off right near the very end, just as Jerry and then Pigpen start playing the Merry-Go-Round Broke Down (Looney Tunes) melody.  A silly kind of ending to an intense song".

"Alligator ends with one of the most dramatic endings ever for this song.  It finishes with Jerry's guitar cranking and screeching eeeeoowww!!  It has a reverb type echo to it that adds to the cranking effect and its pretty stunning.  You have to hear it to appreciate it."

"About the wake for Chocolate George, there were so many people there, I couldn't even see the stage. It was held in Lindley Meadow, which is near the polo field. We were stuck in traffic.  I remember the motorcycle police writing down license numbers in their metal notepads. I didn't hear the Grateful Dead again until a couple of years later when I got their first album. The only part of that album I recognized was the part where Pigpen carries on about "a tiger in your tank" from Good Morning Little School Girl. I can't be sure that the wake is the first place I heard that, but it might have been."

"We were once accused of playing this song for 45 minutes - this version isn't quite that long, but it's the longest I could find. This was recorded at a Russian River resort ballroom on Sunday night of Labor Day Weekend - I don't think there were more than 25 people there, but we played our little hearts out for them anyway.  Pig does his patented "Git your hands outta yo' pockets - git on up an' dance" rave, and the BAND keeps endlessly inventing new stuff behind him.  We had to master this one in mono, because it was recorded with vocal mikes on one track and the whole BAND on the other."

Mickey met the Dead or Billly K. the day before at the Fillmore or something like that. I have to go back and listen, since I don't. remember if Mickey said he met them while they were playing or just ran into them/Billy at the Fillmore the night before.

Although the actual date of the tape in question is unknown, DeadLists provides information on it under the commonly associated date of 5/5/67.

From GDH: David Gans transcribed this setlist, but may not have made a complete copy of the vault tape (since it was often his practice to select from masters what he needed for his show only).

David Sorochty:
"The sound quality in Morning Dew starts out a bit grungy, but then clears up suddenly at 6 min 14 sec into the song and remains near CD type quality for the rest of the tape.  Maybe the first second or two of New Potato Caboose is clipped. Before Turn On Your Lovelight Jerry says 'sing you a little song' to which Phil replies 'thank you Jerry!'. Unfortunately Lovelight cuts off just as it was getting into a pretty heavy jam. Before Beat It On Down The Line'uh-hum' is said jokingly several times by several band members and then Bobby says 'good PA'. Jerry says 'twelve' and they begin Beat It On Down The Line (with twelve beats of course).

The vocals to The Other One on this tape are the earliest known and go like this:

When I woke up this morning, my head was not intact.
I asked my friends about it, try to find out where it's at.
A wind came up inside of me, blew the dust clouds all away.
The heat came 'round and busted me for smiling on a cloudy day.

Comin’, comin’, comin’ around… etc.

Well the heat down in jail, they weren't very smart.
They taught me how to read and write, they taught me the precious art.
Of breakin’ out of jail, well I learned that right away.
And they didn't need me to telling them ‘bout smiling first then running away!

Comin’, comin’, comin’ around… etc.

'thank you' Phil"

David Scott Allan:
"Another note about identical song versions appearing on multiple tapes: New Potato is the exact same on both 1/27/67 and 10/22/67. Dew might be the same, too, but I'd have to go back and check. I still suspect that 1/27 may in fact be a falsely dated composite of shows from later in the year, especially given the well-developed Alligator->Caution."

Jeff Tiedrich:
"There's a bit of a mystery here. The Alligator>Caution that appears on both the 11/10/67 and 11/11/67 tapes are identical -- even on the vault reels! It is unknown which of the two dates these songs belong to, but it's not unreasonable to presume that 11/10 is the original and 11/11 is the copy. The best explanation (read: speculation) is that someone copied the 11/10/67 Alligator>Caution onto the end of the 11/11/67 reels. The master reels for these two shows were not originally in the Dead's vault -- they were stored at Warner Brothers, which is presumably where all this mysterious copying took place."

Jim Powell:
"The introduction preceding Schoolgirl features Jerry suggesting people use the time between songs to order a pizza, take off their clothes, get high, hoot and jeer at the performers."

David Sorochty:
"There is another Cryptical-->Other One--->Cryptical sequence on the Shrine '67 tapes currently listed as being from the 11/10/67 show, which definitely is not duplication of the other one (i.e. the 11/11/67 version). The two versions have slightly different lyrics.  It is not duplication of any other version in circulation. Maybe they did play it both nights.   If more information comes to light about this sequence and its correct date, then its status may change.  This is another mystery about these tapes.

These are the lyrics of the version identified as from 11/10/67:

'…two, three, four'
Cryptical Envelopment >
That's It For The Other One

I woke up this morning, my head was not in sight.
I would ask the walls about it, but they vanished overnight.

Jerry: 'thank you'

David Sorochty and Teddy GoodBear:
These shows originally circulated together out of order on two cassettes labeled as '11-8,9-67' and as '11-10,11-67', however they only played two dates - the 10th and the 11th. Some tapes have the studio versions of Born Cross-Eyed and Dark Star which we list under 11-14-67 (see below) and others do not. When the studio songs are there, they are at the beginning of the side which continues with It Hurts Me Too from 11-10-67. To confuse things, some of the tapes in circulation have sides A and B reversed compared to others. Both copies of Feedback usually are cut off by the end of the tape sides, although our timings listed come from copy which does not get cut.  Other songs also can get cut on one person's tape and not on another's.  Beat It On Down The Line is not on these cassettes, but reportedly is on other tapes of these shows. It's apparent that there are several different transfers from reels to cassettes in circulation. They are very confusing to say the least.

The first tape usually came labeled as '11/8&9/67'.

COMMENTS "Amazing Electric Wonders" - Other artist(s): Buffalo Springfield ; Blue Cheer.

Jeff Tiedrich:
"There's a bit of a mystery here. The Alligator>Caution that appears on both the 11/10/67 and 11/11/67 tapes are identical -- even on the vault reels! It is unknown which of the two dates these songs belong to, but it's not unreasonable to presume that 11/10 is the original and 11/11 is the copy. The best explanation (read: speculation) is that someone copied the 11/10/67 Alligator>Caution onto the end of the 11/11/67 reels.  The master reels for these two shows were not originally in the Dead's vault -- they were stored at Warner Brothers, which is presumably where all this mysterious copying took place."

David Sorochty:
"There is another Cryptical-->Other One--->Cryptical sequence on the Shrine '67 tapes currently listed as being from the 11/10/67 show, which definitely is not duplication of the other one (i.e. the 11/11/67 version). The two versions have slightly different lyrics.  It is not duplication of any other version in circulation. Maybe they did play it both nights. If more information comes to light about this sequence and its correct date, then its status may change. This is another mystery about these tapes.

These are the lyrics of the version identified as from 11/11/67:

Cryptical Envelopment >
The Other One

Well I woke up this morning, with the sky in sight.
I would ask the walls about it, but they vanished overnight.
I could not think to spell my name, I find there was no way.

These versions are often found as filler on tapes of the 11/10,11/67 Shrine shows. There is a pause between the end of Born Cross-Eyed and the Feedback, but the timing of [2:39] includes both. Towards the end of Dark Star Pigpen(?) says "It drags. It drags right there".  There is no banjo at the end either, but there is an acoustic guitar heard towards the beginning.

OK, so flame me if I'm off by a day, but I think not. In those days I used to hang out in the East Village and as an Xmas present to myself, I bought a sitar from this store on E 9th St called the House Of Musical Traditions. By the time the owner had given me a free lesson, it was near or after 8pm and I realized that I wouldn't have time to drop off my new instrument and still make it over to the Village Theater (later the Fillmore East) to catch the early show with the dead. Ticket prices at the Village in those days were $2.50, 3.50 and 4.50 and the seats in the pit were removed for dancers, so you could pay 2 and a half bucks to hang out and dance in front of the folks with the $4.50 tickets.

This didn't help me any as I had only pocket change after my big purchase. I had seen the Dead 3 times previous, twice at the Cafe Au Go Go and in Tompkins Sq Park back in june, so of course I had to go to both shows tonight. On the way over to the gig, I bumped into a couple of friends who didn't have any money either and decided it was too cold to hang on the Street and they'd come along to the show. I could've walked an elephant down 2nd Avenue that night and gotten less attention than my sitar, which I was carrying over my shoulder. Seems everybody heard of them but never saw one up close. Must've shown it off to a dozen people who stopped me along the 3 block walk to the theater.

When we got there, we found a few more folks who also had a desire to see the band and a lack of money. No Problem, we say. Follow us. On 6th St., there was this door that was open and you went up a flight of stairs, if you took a right you were at the East Village Other offices and if you took a left, you were in this room full of circuit breakers, went through a door and were in the foyer of the ladies room in the balcony. This was a well known secret among some of us locals and we had caught a fair number of free shows this way. I guess somebody discovered that the door was unlocked, as tonight it was locked tight. Disaster.

Back down to 6th st., pull down the ladder to the fire escape for the balcony and head on up in hopes of getting somebody inside to pop the door. Not only no luck, but we got the distinct feeling that this old fire escape was going to come down if we hung out much longer. After a hasty retreat, we are at our wits end. Short of storming the gate (which we weren't into), it seems that we are left out in the cold, so to speak.

Things were looser in those days, esp when it wasn't crowded, so the 6 or so of us duck into the lobby to warm up and see if we could con the lone ticket taker. I notice him looking at my sitar so I immediatly sit down about 6 feet from him and start to strum. Over he comes. "Farout man, a sitar!", etc. Over his shouolder I see my co conspiritors walking into the theater. He suddenly remembers he's working and turns around to catch the action and goes running after them. Job done, i sling my instrument over my shoulder and walk right in. I don't think he tried too hard, as I saw most everybody who walked in during the course of the evening. No, I don't remember the set list, only that Pig did a bitchin Schoolgirl and at the end of the first show one of the band said if we wanted to stay for the late show we were welcome to, and another one (Weir?) said "yeah we didn't sell any tickets for that one either."

Anybody out there at that show? Anybody remember taking part in our "creative" gatecrashing? BTW, in my 28 years almost to the day of seeing the Dead, 6/67-6/95, that was the only time I ever crashed the gate. I did see the guy i conned later that evening and he just looked at me smiled and shook his head, so i guess he was more impressed with our creativity than pissed about our getting in. It was cold outside, and things were looser in those days.

COMMENTS Bill Gallagher:
In the book "Berkeley At War" by WJ Rorabaugh (1989), p. 145 it says "In 1967 Canyon's hippies held a benefit concert to raise money to rebuild their general store. Country Joe McDonald, the Grateful Dead and others came to play. The narrow, winding road into Canyon was clogged with flower-painted VW vans."

Canyon is a small community over the hill from Berkeley towards Moraga and Walnut Creek.

Bill Gallagher contacted Country Joe and he said:

"The benefit was held in Canyon, I believe, in the school yard of the little private school. I have a couple of posters of the event. cheers, cjm"

Please DO NOT ask CJ for the poster.
