I guess the date for this show remains somewhat unknown, though some believe it may be the first acid test. It's pretty interesting to listen to anyhow. "Speed Limit" is the same chords over and over, but breaks out at times to some nice jamming. The Cassady rap is interesting, but if you listen in the background, you can hear the beginnings of "Turn On Your Lovelight." Did the Dead/Warlocks play the tune as early as '65?

The first acid test was on November 27, 1965. The next one was at Big Nig's house in December. You should check out Electric Kool-Aide for a complete detailed account of the Acid Test Era.
