There IS no "setlist" for this show ... not really a show, more of an "experience".

According to Ihor Slabicky, an LP album was released called, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test - var. (United Fan Club Society, Goteborg, Sweden, Stellar Music Special, Series 1, Show 1, SMS001-1) A record (in all likelihood a bootleg) from the San Francisco State College "Acid Test" of October 1 and 2, 1966. It is mostly Ken Babbs (?) talking in the college radio station's studio, interspersed with a few seconds of what could be Garcia on guitar, as well as parts of the Garcia, Kesey, et al interviews on NBC's "Tomorrow" show of May 7, 1981. Released in March, 1988.
