I think it's from Halloween, 1969. How rare is that one?

The set list:

Volunteers
Good Shepherd
Somebody to Love
Rock Me Baby
Have You Seen the Saucers?

Mexico

What can you make of that?

From what ive found its from 23rd February 1970.But i dont know, there are tons of bootlegs out there with the wrong date or even wrong song names.Theres also a chance it was edited to fit on vinyl, or as with alot of boots its a mix from a couple shows, and sometimes they just put some date on it.All info from the show that it might be, guessing from the set.

Feb 23 1970* (Mon) - Winterland (or Fillmore West?), San Francisco CA
We Can Be Together, Volunteers, Good Shepherd, Somebody to Love,
Emergency, Uncle Sam Blues, Have You Seen the Saucers, Mexico,
The Other Side of This Life, Nothing, Greasy Heart,
3/5 of a Mile in 10 Seconds, Same Old Phony Handshake
(Benefit for Grateful Dead)
(also with Quicksilver Messenger Service, Santana,
It's a Beautiful Day, Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks)

I might be wrong, but its problably sometime in 1970, because thats when Mexico and Have You Seen the Saucers was released, and from what i read they were first played in December 1969.

According to Craig Fenton's Take Me To A Circustent: 10/31/69, Los Angeles Forum, Inglewood, California. Also according to Fenton the first appearance of Have You Seen the Saucers was 23/2/70 (Fillmore West, not Winterland).

Yeah, that's what I thought. It seemed like a weird date since it had those songs. I figure it must be misdated or something. I'm sure Craig Fenton knows better than I do.

I actually haven't gotten a chance to listen to the album yet, so I'm not sure if it's a compilation of different shows. All I know is what it says on the back of the album, and I'm now totally convinced that it can't be right. So, I'll post when I listen to it, and let you guys know.

Recently, meaning today, in a small secluded antique shop in the middle of North Carolina, I found Bless Its Pointed Little Head, original on vinyl.I had an inner-freak out when I saw it, I have been looking for that for years, YEARS!.In addition, I also got the amazing yet odd Welcome to my Nightmare by Mr. Cooper, my Dad raised me on that.I also found Every Good Boy Deserves Favor by The Moody Blues and In Search of Space by Hawkwind, but they were in bad condition so back they went.Its great what you will find in secluded antique shops!

Well, today at a not-so-secluded record store in LA, I found a copy of QMS' album Quicksilver as well as The Grateful Dead, live on 11-2-69 at the Fillmore (I believe). And a few Eric Burdon and The Animals (the later San Francisco incarnation) that I am very much liking.

The Dead can keep me happy for days.

Most of my collection is very old records, very few CDs - I haven't bought anything in years. I snatched "Bless It's Pointed Little Head" and a bunch of Dead albums from a guy who's parent sent him away to a mental institution or something a long time ago. Never heard about him again, it would be scary if he came back for them.

So that's where they went...

Sorry to dip in, but I just wanted to confess... I have just bought my first dose of Spirit. I've always put it off, not knowing which to get. I finally went for Time Circle -- a best of.

Fantastic.

Well, I just found a PRISTINE copy of Surrealistic Pillow on stereo on vinyl at a flea market. I should go there more often...

Eight bucks, not a scratch on it. Plays completely perfectly.

Oh how I wish I lived out there...where JA and other music was plentiful like fish in the blue seas.I have not seen Surrealistic Pillow anywhere.For some reason the famous, or best selling albums by bands from the late 1960s-early 1970s are either the only ones you can find, or the ones you never can find, or look like they were wrapped in fresh meat and thrown into a cage with a hungry lion, helpless to the destruction.

Here's 2 that I borrowed from the library, and copied:

"Flatt, Scruggs, and Doc Watson - Strictly Instrumental" Fun, lively bluegrass, with intertwining picking, harmonica, and slide guitar. Even without the Beverly Hillbillies and Bonnie and Clyde theme songs, this shit kicks.

"4 String Quartet Tribute to CSNY" - All their most recognizable songs done with sawing exhuberance on Violin, Viola, Cello, and Upright Bass. Wooden Ships included, and everything else you know and love. This shit will be the centerpiece of our Thanksgiving dinner this year.

Dig, and you will find.

Try to find "Hold On It's Coming" by country Joe. I you don't want to pay $100 for it try Country Joe's website and Store. I upgraded my broken cassette tape to CD for about $20 from his website.
