Billed as "Mickey and the Hartbeats" without Pig and Bobby. This show is very different from the norm as it is mostly instrumental witha very cool "Death Letter Blues".

Pigpen and Wier not in band in October 68-"immature behavior"

Whoa what a show!

I dropped 11 hits of super clean blotter and strapped on the headphones...

Was peaking pretty good during the last part of Dark Star Jam, but then I farted and accidentally shit my pants.

I think it was an accident anyway.

Thanks Jerry :-D

Haha. Nice farty Mcpoopants. Im not sure how clean the cid was if it caused your bowels to explode. I guess 11 would do that to a man. You just inspired a great holloween costume idea *wink* *wink*
