At dead.net. a commenter says
In today's Relix magazine they interview Donna Jean who found some more tapes in a box in one of the Godchaux houses. It's a Betty board. This is November 8th 1976 at Sophie's in Palo Alto. Band was Jerry, Keith & Donna, John Kahn and Ron Tutt. Comes out August 19th. Not seeing it on www.jerrygarcia.com or amazon as advertised. Songs include 'Ride Mighty High' and 'Mission In The Rain'

  1. Here's something interesting: the tracklist for this new release is identical to the setlist for the circulating aud of 11/16/76 (also Sophie's, Palo Alto).

  4. "For him at that moment, the Garcia Band was its own form of liberation and emancipation."

    Nice.

    They lose themselves a little there late in MH, but who doesn't?

  5. Just did a little a/b. It's the same show as "11/16/76" http://db.etree.org/shn/13030

  7. I believe my date is correct, and there certainly were not two shows eight days apart at Sophie's. At any rate, one of the tape labels was wrong, and I will not swear that it is not mine. Anyone have easy access to BAM or the Datebook from 11/76?

    1. It's all really confusing.

      BAM no 8 (11/76), p. 40 shows Jerry Garcia at Sophie's on 11/8 and 11/15. I have also seen a contract for 11/8, as well as an ex post box office report (390 tickets sold, $1,562 gross). So 11/8 definitely happened. There is no evidence other than your tape of an 11/16 show.
