1969 NRPS: new data

Just a tip of the hat to Lost Live Dead, which has been doing yeoman's work unearthing early New Riders gigs based on various sources, but especially on careful digging through late 1969 San Francisco Chronicle (and notably Gleason's column).

Because of their hard work, TJS has recently added inter alia the following dates:


Aug 6, 1969  The Matrix **including first known public usage of the NRPS moniker
Aug 8, 1969  The Matrix
Aug 9, 1969  The Matrix
Aug 13, 1969  Family Dog at The Great Highway
Oct 9, 1969  Inn of the Beginning
Oct 16, 1969  Mandrake's, Berkeley
Nov 3, 1969  The Matrix
Nov 4, 1969  The Matrix
Nov 6, 1969  Inn of the Beginning
Nov 13, 1969  The Poppycock, Palo Alto
Nov 18, 1969  Family Dog at The Great Highway
Nov 20, 1969  The Poppycock, Palo Alto
Nov 27, 1969  Family Dog at The Great Highway
Nov 28, 1969  Inn of the Beginning
Nov 29, 1969  Inn of the Beginning

This is just awesome stuff. It really helps to flesh out the heretofore relatively obscure early gig history of the New Riders. Thank you, gentlemen!
