Yowza! When a tape such as the one we're going to hear this week sees the light of day I simply can't contain my enthusiasm.This tape comes from June 5th, 1970 - Fillmore West San Francisco California.. that's right 1970.. one of the greatest watershed years in the band's history and one that has always been sadly underrepresented in terms of recordings.. Furthurmore the provenance of this tape traces back to Bear who recorded it on a Sony 770 reel to reel deck. We have both an acoustic and electric set.. and I can't possible not play the entire set for you this week.
Naturally there are various tape dropouts and cuts, reel flips, etc... a small price to pay for this fabulous treasure, in my opinion. This is a real beauty my friends.. I hope you savor it as much as I have!
