From what i am told this show is Mickey & The Hartbeats, the dead minus Bobby and Pigpen, if anyone knows where i can get this show or the 10/30/68 show please inform me!

Really awesome sounding show. There is no "setlist." Just two over 1/2 hour jams, the first one is moderate tempo, the second is a lot slower & bluesy.

There is a great recording that you can get @ gdlive (although I think they finally closed that great site down) that was mickey (I think) and Jerry jamming with Harvey Mandel and Elvin Bishop. Elvin sings a bunch of songs and there is some amazing jamming. The date was 12/24/68 @ the Matrix. Does anyone know if there is any artwork and/or info for this show? they sound amazing !!!!!!! I esp. like a song called "Thinking' About You"
